Christmas Stamp-a-Stack

Hello everyone. Yesterday I had my Christmas stamp-a-stack and these are the three cards we made. All the ladies had lots of fun making them and were all so keen to get into more at home. The first is using Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstock with the Contempo Christmas stamp set. The Very Vanilla Background was put through the Big Shot using the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder. I just love this one and use it far too much. A few stick on bling was added to finish off the bauble.
This was my favourite. Using the Welcome Christmas Stamp Set and the Music Notes Wheel I came up with a Country feel type of card for Christmas. I have also used the Sleigh Bells Ribbon which is part of our special at the moment (see earlier post below). It goes beautifully with this type of card. Other materials used are Naturals Ivory cardstock, Jolly Holiday DSP, Always Artichoke cardstock, spritzer tool, crumb cake ink pad for the family image and Early Espresso for the words. I also snuck in the image from Autumn Days on the artichoke piece of cardstock at the bottom using the same colour ink. Most of the pieces were roughed up using my distressing tool. I love this type of look.
I've used our new shimmer paint "Champagne" and turned it into a shimmer mist and sprayed it all over the Cherry Cobbler background before starting with this card. Black embossed the Dasher stamp and added a couple of tiny tags with silver cord (courtesy of Spotlight) to finish it off. A bit of fiddling but certainly worth the effort. Lovely and sparkly this one.
I've made a few Christmas cards this year. Stay tuned over the next few weeks for my posts.
Happy Christmas Stamping.
