Fresh Squeezed Stamps (Christmas Treats)


Today is another new release of Fresh Squeezed Stamps. This darling set Christmas Treats is perfect for the holiday card-making!
Since Christmas is one of the busiest time of the year, it is best to keep the design and elements simple in order to mass produce. With that in mind, I used the backing of the Gingerbread Man and stamped it with Rusty Hinge ( this color is not too dark or too light). Then I stamped the image with Vintage photo (darkest brown) and there you have a perfectly-colored Gingerbread Man!
Christmas Treats (Gingerbread Boys)
Please stop by Fresh Squeezed Stamps and see the beautiful work from other guest designer! I strongly encourage you to follow FSS Blog!
