Stamp Pad Christmas Card - Pencil Butt Eraser

I have been gone for six months! That's something that I regret very deeply. Starting back in June, I got myself back in a proper working environment which gave me no more spare time to spend on making paper crafts (I have also been actively involved in a choral organization, leaving me heavily tired at most nights). But it must be the spirit of Christmas that drew me back to the anxiousness of having to make cards again. 

Last night I went to the stationery shop having made the decision to start making some cards again for Christmas. I was confused on what to actually buy because I didn't have a clear idea on what to make and hence what to need. So I wandered around the store for half an hour just to buy a set of finger-painting stamp pads.  

I had the stamp pads, but I didn't have any stamp. Let me tell you again, the house always has things you can make use of! It's amazing!

I cut some 5cm x 10cm white cards and drew simple lines and curves to make tree branches (I also drew half of a pine tree). Then I used the eraser on the butt of a pen/pencil as stamp to make the tree decorations. You can also use your fingertip to stamp because anyway the stamp pads are actually made for finger-painting purposes. 

The size of the pads that I bought is about 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm. They're the perfect size for me to stamp its whole thing onto the cards and with some added doodles, they create pictures of gift boxes. Or just stamp them square by square making a pattern of colors. 

Got no stamps? Don't worry, there's always things to use. Check out my next posts to see what other things found around the house that can be used as stamps!
