Watercolours and Carols of Christmas 

Carols of Christmas bundle is the starting point as far as the idea went but first I had to set the background using ink in Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Pool Party. I used my Aqua Painters for painting on the ink. I visualized it with silver foil and I want some contrast foil so for the deer I used copper foil. The sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in silver and comes from the Nature Sings stamp set. I love the feeling of depth this card has! I love the simple fact that no matter how often I might decide to replicate this card no two cards can ever be exactly the same. 

Simple Christmas Card 

This is a simple but elegant Christmas card. It uses the negative plus part of the positive of the largest snowflakes of the seasonal layers thinlits dies. The sentiment is in Dapper Denim ink and uses the Nature Sings stamp set. Under the snowflake there is some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. All the card stock is Whisper White and it is embellished with silver Faceted Gems.

Carols of Christmas with Foil Frenzy

Today I have a really quick easy peasy Christmas card made using the Carols of Christmas stamps and Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP. I just used the colours Tranquil Tide and Whisper White for Card Stock and ink and embellished with Basics Pack 2 Washi Tape, Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments and Rhinestone Jewels. Even with all the cutting I kept this one under 30 minutes to make. Perfect choice if you’re new to stamping. 

Joyful Nativity card

This I think is my last Christmas card. I could be wrong as I keep adding more to my list. But it’s a great place to finish!!! Joyful Nativity is the stamp set used here a simple card really. Only two colours of ink: Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay and three colours of card stock: Whisper White, Delightful Dijon and Bermuda Bay. One important lesson I learned with this card is to get nice even stamping with large area flat photopolymer stamps after priming with an eraser also ink stamp first with Versamark ink then ink your colour on. Makes for a nice even image. 

Pretty Pines Curtain Fold card

So begins my rush to finish Christmas cards. This features the Pretty Pines Suite and my version of the curtain fold technique. I love the way the stripes on the DSP turned out. I also love the embossing on the Mint Macaron what would otherwise have been negative space turned out. I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits I love that they look finished without doing a matte. I know who’s getting this one but I won’t tell. 

Father Christmas and Merry Medley 

This was what I thought was the last Christmas card this year. I’ve been making Christmas cards since July and would you believe I still ran out before writing one for everyone on my list. I’m grateful for all the people who have touched my life one way or another and I’m doing a few more Christmas cards this week probably posting through next week. I want to thank those who take time to respond to my posts you’ll never know how much I appreciate you. Just as a footnote this card uses the Merry Medley background stamp and the Father Christmas stamp set.
