2011 Christmas

It is Christmas and this means purchasing or making presents and making beautiful cards.  I have over 150 on my card list and the majority of them receive hand made Christmas cards, so below are examples of the cards I will be sending out this year - nice and simple but elegant !  These are also the cards I will be demonstrating at my Christmas card workshop.  Let me know what you think!

Garden Green & Real Red are the colours I've used on the stamp sets Many Merry Messages; Baroque Motifs; Delightful Decorations

Lucky Limade and Real Red look so awesome together when combined with Delightful Decorations.

To show I really did make heaps of these

Inspired by one of my wonderful customers Erin...

 I made heaps of these too
Stitched Stockings on Garden Green or Poppy Parande with a bit of supernova glitter for a little bling on various dry embossed backgrounds

Poppy Parade and Lucky Limade (the 2011-13 In colours) are gorgeous together with stamp set Contempo Christmas - a great value for money Christmas set.
Same idea here but I've turned the Baroque Motifs stamp around and used a different bauble from Dellightful Decorations.

Heaps of these too...
Dasher is one of my favourite stamp sets and is amazing versatile for Christmas cards.
Dasher - one of my favourite stamps.  Choc Chip stamping and matting on Garden Green.  You can use any Christmay roller including the retired so swirley or current sparkle & shine or sassy sparkles (above) or even Starburst...and don't forget to put diamonds on Dasher's antlers
This is stunning - and really simple.  Dasher stamped in cherry cobbler, next to Lovely as a tree, stamped through a circular window and then chalked gently to give subtle colour.

Heaps of these werer made too...
