Another new one!

Another new stamp set – this time it’s Season of Joy, a set of eight stamps including the Merry Christmas greeting (which you can barely see) and this fancy swirl, which you could use for any occasion.

For the large square card, I made the scalloped edge by punching out ½” circles from Gable Green cardstock and sticking them behind the Green Galore layer.

The swirl stamp and the Merry Christmas stamp both feature dotted lines – I pierced each of these dots, just because I felt like it. I also pierced around the scalloped circle to continue the theme.

The smaller square project is a mini, flattish box. The dots around this scalloped circle are simply made with a marker.

These samples don’t really do the set justice as I’ve only used half of the stamps but it gives you a bit of an idea… and hopefully I’ll have more to post in a few days.
