New England Stamper: Swedish Christmas

November 28, 2011

Swedish Christmas

Do you have stamps that you buy and then they sit unused for months? I do and today I unearthed a stamp and some paper that I bought a year ago when I took a trip to Sweden to visit my brother and his family.

My sister-in-law, Helene, is a scrapbooker and she took me to a store called Panduro Hobby, which is similar to the Michaels or Hobby Craft. I can't believe I've had this stamp for a year and not used it - I have 2 others that I bought as well that I should blow the dust off!

The card base is a Fabriano watercolor card and the extras are from Stampin' Up! - a rhinestone and some cherry cobbler seam binding.

I made this card for today's Splitcoast CAS Challenge and Our Creative Corner's Christmas Tree Challenge.

Note: I have a Cyber Monday sale going on in my Etsy store today. And don't forget to check out my new Vintage Page Facebook page.

Happy Stamping!

It is such a beautiful stamp so now you've started to use it I am sure you will get lots of pleasure from working with it.
I have bought from the Panduro catalogue in the past, they have some lovely items.

Oh brother, yes, I have stamps I've had for years that are still in the box, poor sad things.

Charming card, Ali, very pretty stamp. Where did you get the Swedish text behind it?
