Santa Trees (Wednesday Stamper Santa Claus)


I bought a real Christmas tree again for the house as I love the smell of pine..this year I bought a pot bound one though to save sweeping up the needles. We had a great time decorating it yesterday as the decorations box came down from the loft. My 6yr old always decorates his own tree and that is in the kitchen with all the decorations he has made in various playgroups and at school. These Santa trees are photographed in front of it. I used a template for the tree from Caroles Crafts in Widnes, Cheshire...a new craft shop I have found that has replaced the old one I used to visit. It is really handy as next door is a farm shop with all horses and chickens running round and where I can get huge bales of hay for our guinea pigs cheaply. To get back to the Santa trees I have used a Santa Claus stamp on them which I really love as it has got great detail and stamps well. All the stamps I have used are from The Artistic Stamper. I have added lots of faux gemstones for a bit of Christmas bling.

What wonderful santa trees, Lorraine. I am trying to figure out the exact shape, but so far I haven't succeeded. One looks like a square bottom but one looks rounded with a straight side, like a capital D.
Beautiful stamp.
