Christmas Stamp-a-stack cards

Hi all! I would like to share a couple of cards that we will be making in our upcoming Christmas Stamp-a-stack! Two very different cards for you.
This first one is more traditional - picture wise anyway!

This one is more of a fun one!

I hope you like them! If you are interested in coming along and making some of these cards, contact me ASAP to book your seat. We make three each of two different designs. Class details are listed down the right hand side of my blog.

Christmas in July!

With all the cold days and in door entertainment and all the talk of 'Christmas in July' at the moment, I thought I would make some chrissy cards to put in my stash! As you can see below, I have gone a little Baja Breeze mad! (love that colour!) and as always had to have one with Kraft!!
All three cards are very clean and simple in design - but I am very happy with the results.
This first one, I have used the 'reverse masking' technique and sponged the rectangle and stamped the background trees with Baja Breeze ink. Then the top tree is stamped with Baja Breeze and Versa mark ink then sprinkle with a mix of clear embossing powder and dazzling diamonds! The sentiment is from the 'Many Merry Messages' set.

These next two are using the gorgeous 'Illuminations' set, embossed with white powder. I restamped in Baja Breeze/Real Red and embossed with clear powder and then cut out the 'J' and raised it with dimensionals! I added white taffeta ribbon to the kraft card and a small flower and rhinestone brad to the white card.

(if you click on the images, you can see more detail!)
I hope you are inspired to get some of your chrissy cards started xx
