Denim Kinkade Christmas

Hey folks!  We are almost in the home stretch for the Falliday Fest challenges over on SCS.  One of the challenges today was to make a blue Christmas card, so I immediately thought of my Thomas Kinkade stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms.  This is one of the original stamps with the wood block, and the easiest way to ink this up is with a brayer.

I inked up the brayer with denim blue ink and rolled it all over the top of the Kinkade stamp.  Then I placed my smooth white paper over the top and held it in place while I pressed the paper onto the stamp.  When I pulled the paper off, this beautiful image is what resulted.  I found a sentiment that would fit across the top and stamped it with the same blue ink.

I love making clean and simple cards like this, and I love making them flat and mail-able.  That is so important when mailing out tons of Christmas cards every year.  :-)

Go check out the Falliday Fest challenges and play along with us!  You have until the end of the month to finish the challenges and upload your cards for a chance to win an awesome prize from one of our sponsors!
