Some Creative Christmas Carving

It's been ages since I have played with my Lino Cutting Baren Kit and carved some of my own stamps so with a few minutes spare the other night I took some Speedy Ball circles and carved 3 Christmas Designs.  Some Holly, A Christmas Tree and Gingerbread Man with a circle outline.



For a quick addition to a variety of  projects I decided to ink up a colored background using my Dylusions Spray Inks and stamp out my new designs in Black Ink.



They are the perfect size to punch out with my Stampin Up 1 and 3/4 inch punch.


A little touching up if needed with a black pen and some inking around the edge and they are ready to go.  A hole punched at the top and a little twine will turn these into the perfect little tag to add to a gift don't you think?



I am linking up this Christmas Project to the Unruly PaperArts '12 Days of Christmas' Link Up Party.
