Christmas Stamp-a-stack cards 2009

These are some of the designs I used for the Christmas stamp-a-stacks I ran for customers/friends last year.

This one is one of my personal favourites and was inspired by Nancy Littrell on SCS here.  It was made using the masking technique, sponging using the colours Pacific Point and Pink Pirouette.  The stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree and Many Merry Messages. 

These two were inspired by Albongo on SCS here, using the stamp set Pocket Silhouettes, plus Best Yet and Short & Sweet.  Again, these cards used the masking technique.  And the colours are Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss and Real Red.  Plus, you can’t have a Christmas card without lots of Dazzling Diamonds!

The next one is a subtle colour combo, using Sahara Sand and Bashful Blue.  The stamp set is Season of Joy – so versatile!

The last card uses the colours Pacific Point, Baja Breeze and Real Red which was inspired by the incredibly talented Jenny at Stamping Moments here.  The stamp sets are Tree Trimmings, Spotlight on Christmas for the swirl on Whisper White and Season of Joy for the greeting.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Inspired Christmas wreath

Do you have blogs you like to visit all the time because they always inspire you?  Well, one of my favourite blogs is DOstamping with Dawn.  Dawn always inspires me with gorgeous cards and projects.  You should check her out here.  But today, this card was inspired by Dawn’s post here.

I have used the stamp sets Together Forever, One of a Kind and Short and Sweet in this card.  The colours are Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Kiwi Kiss and Handsome Hunter.  I have used textured cardstock which lends a real elegance to the card in real life.  And the ribbon?  Ahh … something on my wishlist for sooo long – Riding Hood Red/Very Vanilla wide striped grosgrain.  It will be available for purchase in Australia on 1 August when the Spring Mini starts.  Contact me if you want some too!

I love cards with Christmas wreaths.  I had a tutorial in my newsletter this month on how to recreate this wreath with the Boho Blossoms punch, Scallop Circle punch and 1″ Circle punch.  If you would like to learn new tips, then you should join my newsletter to see what my tutorial is next month!  Click on the box in the top right hand corner.  Here is a close up of the wreath:
