The current challenge is I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, but for those of you like me who struggle a bit with white cards, it could be traditional christmas colours, infact as long as it's christmas themed and includes stamping its up to you.
I chose to make a traditional vintage style card and used my new lifestyle die (so much better value than spellbinders as you get 16 dies in this pack as opposed to the measly 5 or 6 usual spellbinder ones) to make an easel style card.
I used Melissa Frances 'Deck the Halls' paper which I toned down as I felt it was a little bright with TH picket fence distress stain and edged with vintage photo distress ink. The santa stamp is from Kreativ Hobby who ship worldwide and the script stamp is from a set of Alpha stamps which I gold embossed. The sentiment stamp is Joy from Curious by design.
I've sneaked in another couple of cards as I'm really enjoying making them at the moment, just as well seeing as I have plenty more to make LOL.
Another easel card using my new lifestyle die LOL. Other dies used are Cheery Lynn french pastry and Memory box poinsettia wreath. The central stamp is from Stempelglade vintage christmas and stamped with archival ink on glossy card and tinted with zig photomarkers (which I seriously need more off)
The final card I only managed to finish last night and also fits the theme I'm dreaming of a white christmas.
I made the background paper using distress stains in blue jeans, milled lavender and picket fence. Various christmas sentiments stamped in bleach and chipped sapphire.
The stamped image is from Artistic Outpost Sleigh ride and added some lace and bling to finish.
Hope you have a great Sunday, shame no more Downton but I been drawn into I'm a Celebrity Again, so guess what I'll be watching later.
Happy Crafting XX
