Default Mini Christmas stamps

I'd love your input - as many samples, ideas, techniques, layouts, etc. as you can think of - for a site visitor... she says:

This is an old entry from my gallery. The top panel used several small/tiny stamps to make a custom background:

Here's the link to the index card for the (retired) set I used so you can see the size of the stamps:

And here's the link for Snow Flurries so you can see what other folks did with the stamps:

Hope these links help!

First thought ... using them with Versamark to create a festive background.

(Dina, I'm still drooling over a card you made and was posted over on Pinterest, one with gorgeous snowflakes and a green ribbon. Just lovely!)

This card used punches but they are really tiny. The idea is good for stamps so I'm sharing it too:

She could use them on the inside of the card following the theme of the focal point on the front.

Punch out circles or squares on the front of the card, then stamp a tiny image on punched out paper, glue it back into the space but on the inside of the card. The card will have open areas on the front and the stamped images will be glued down on the inside but you'll see them when the card is closed. ? Does that make sense?

Decorate the envelopes.

Decorate sentiment tags.

I imagine they are coordinated. She could use each one on a separate colored CS ( ex: socks on redCS, mittens on green, stars on yellow, ornaments on blue) to create her own DSP that could then be used as a series of banners, a set of stacking gift boxes, triangles to nest to create a Christmas tree, leaf or circle shapes to make a wreath ...

Each stamped CS could be done with a separate embossing powders, or all in black, or ...

Are they wood mounted! If not, line them up in the Misti and stamp in rows using different colors. Would be a fun background.

This is a background stamp comprised of many small images, but could easily be mimicked with an assortment of tiny stamps: https://www.unitystampco.com/merry-little-season/. If you check out the samples, some of the cards were made with only one of the images.

I made this card with some tiny stamps (not Christmas, but...):

Also these (which are Christmas):

I'm thinking that searching the galleries (or Pinterest or wherever) with the keyword "inchies" might yield some useful results...

Here are the tiny ones made into tags:

And on a card, easily could be made into a holiday theme, too!

Some of the first Christmas cards I made, before I was really a stamper, used tiny image stamps and I still remember my Godmother thanking me for the "exquisite" card that year. They were smaller scale (maybe 4") square cards, ivory and slightly textured, with a strong red square (maybe an inch or 1.5") stuuck in the centre with a simple black image stamped on that square and a border of a gold dimensional paste (it was designed for glass work - something like a line of Liquid Pearls would be similar) round the edge of the square. No sentiment or anything - really simple but effective.

Depending on the images they might work for a really CAS treatment - white on white layering drawing the eye to a simple stamped image. Worth a look at Late Blossom's blog as it's something she does really effectively on occasion and she has other ideas for small stamps that could be useful too.

Either use to make a masterboard, or the other alternative is to stamp onto card, then punch out with a suitable sized punch, then create a mosaic square/oblong, matted and layered onto a card front. You could also punch the squares from the masterboard.
This one isn't one I've done with Christmas stamps, but you get the idea.
Another idea would be to make a 'triple stamped' set of panels with them.

My first thought was inchies and tags... I often use a tiny stamp inside a card to carry through the theme in a bottom corner...


What a clever idea to line them up on the Misti!


Depending on the image I like the clear heat emboss bg or a colored one-like gold...


She could use them for envelope art


If they are super tiny she might make custom address labels for herself or friends as a gift. Or on larger labels as To Froms for gifts


She could make small note cards with a single image in the center for thank yous or just whatevers...I might emboss that. Maybe use a stylus and go around to frame it. Very often TJMaxx may have stationary with a plain front, colored border-just asking for someone to stamp the front...once I got super lucky and found Cranes there!


She could make sticker sets for kids. Stamp them on round white label stickers.

I mde a Christmas tree using mini stamps once. I don't have the card uploaded here and I mailed it out several years ago, so no photo. What I did, though, was use the same mini stamp to stamp a row of 5 images, then the next row up I stamped 4 images, etc. At the top I glued a gold punched star.

Scenic stamping even very simple scenes: I have a large stamp of Santa standing and looking at his "list". One year I drew 2 lines behind him to create a counter and then used small stamps to create toys scattered across that counter.

Other ideas would be making your own backgrounds or for mini books created with a single folded piece of paper.

Along the same idea of carrying your theme to the inside of a card I often use small stamps on my envelopes. The don't get in the way but make it festive.

I love to use mini stamps for "faux postage" or as a focal point on a CAS card with maybe some scoring or a decoratively cut bottom edge along with a sentiment.
