Peace and Joy Video Tutorial

With Christmas just around the corner, we were very excited this week to release the Family Heirloom Printer’s Tray along with more Christmas card ideas!   

Peace and Joy

This card is a great example of using stamps that you already have on hand for other purposes. The ornaments on this card were created using a balloon  image stamp. By stamping the balloons in traditional Christmas colors and turning them upside down, they make great ornaments, allowing for your stamps to be used in various or not tradional ways.

  2. What a wonderful design, beautiful color combo and innovative way to use your stamps. I may have to start turning all of mine upside down to see what else they could be ;-). Nice work, Tracy.
