- Peg Stamp Sets: Diamond Sky, Holly Border, Winter Night Sky, Pepita’s Poinsettia, Winter Pine Border, Holiday Garden
- Blending brushes
- Black pen
- White , cream and kraft cardstock
- Dye ink pads
- Enamel dots or stickers for decorations if desired
- When using blending brushes I recommending having about 6 brushes, 1 for all greens, 1 for reds, 1 for yellows etc so you don’t have to wash them and you conserve your ink.
- I used heavy-duty scissors with serrated bladed I bought at the dollar tree to cut through all of the trees at once. Be sure to hold the trees together tightly as you cut so they don’t slide.
- If you don’t have stamps you can try this technique with scrapbook paper, it would be really cute and you can use up what you have!
I hope this project inspired you and til next time happy crafting!
