Christmas it is!


Three DT cards from me today for the challenges at AllsortsWe Love Stamping  and Stamping Sensations.

My first card is for Allsorts and the optional theme of Christmas Time chosen by our host this week Lolo. Or you can use the Anything goes option. For my card I've used a pre printed image with a scrap of DP. I then used an old Spellbinders candy cane die set.

My second card is for the mid month reminder of our challenge at We Love Stamping where we'd like to see either Christmas Characters or anything goes. I've used an Apple Blossom stamp set that has never seen ink before. I used DI inks to create a background and then cut out with a debossed circle die. I coloured Santa with DI watercolour pencils. I added a little silver gilding polish around the edges of the circle and some gold pen to the wording. The sentiment is computer generated and cut with an oval die.

My third card is for Stamping Sensations and another mid month reminder. We have a theme of Get Ready For Christmas or anything goes. I've used a Crafty Individuals cottage stamp directly onto a piece of patterned paper. I then coloured with promarkers and added a die cut sentiment from the same glitter card as the base mat.

Our posts are Christmas all the way today Lynn. As Val said, three very different cards but equally pretty, if pushed on a fav maybe the Santa, he looks to have a very laid back demeanour.

All of your beautiful cards shout Christmas and are wonderful too. A favourite? I have to say the last one, it reminds me of the film "It's A Wonderful Life. A has to be seen at Christmas in our house.
