It’s about time to see these awesome stamps in action! I’ve made a couple of cards and a layout. First up is a clean and simple Christmas card:

Julkort 1The ornament is cut out with the die and then stamped and clear embossed on Basic Straw cardstock. I then inked it up with Distress ink, Aged mahogany.  It’s mounted with 3d foam and I love how it came out!!!

Grangeneral The photo is from last year’s tree decoration.  EVERY year I try to get a decent photo of this moment, but it’s like a curse. I never ever succeed. But it doesn’t matter that the photo is out of focus, the feeling is there! I used the die and one of the ornament stamps to make a banner, and I used one of the circles to make my own patterned paper.

I used the beautiful Stuck?! Sketches Bonus sketch #1 for this page.

And for my final card, I decided to go with more bright and clear colors – using some lovely Bo Bunny papers from last year.

Julkort 2The sentiment is beautiful!!!!

I used Mojo Monday sketch 155 for this one. At once I saw the sketch I saw the use of the ornament and sentiment on my card. It came together in no time yesterday. To make it more fun, I layered some colorful ribbon, pompoms and lace. Here is the great sketch:

I hope you have enjoyed my samples and want to take your chance of winning! And if you haven’t been visiting the Prickley Pear Blog and looked at Nicole’s samples yet, be sure to do so!!!   Thank you so much for stopping by and playing along!!!
