More Christmas Cards

Here are the last 3 samples I made for Stamper's Alley using the new Hero Arts Christmas stamps.


The ornaments are embossed in white, trimmed out (I know - again with the scissors!) and sponged with Peeled Paint and Barn Door Distress Inks. The flower was white and I colored it with my R29 Copic marker, added a button in the center and a twine bow behind it, a la Jennifer McGuire. Don't you just love her creations? Anyway, The scalloped border is done with a Fiskars border punch and I added a couple of gems to the snowflakes on the ornaments. A little silver cord and the red ornament is popped up on foam tape...one more card done!


 This card is a copy of one I found through Pinterest at Poppy Paperie's blog. I kept the basic design but changed everything else since I didn't have the die, the stamps, or the ribbon she used on her card. The die I used is from Spellbinders, it's the Reverse Wonky Rectangle. The border around the sentiment is a small Hero Arts snowflake stamp stamped halfway onto the circle and I sponged a little Shabby Shutters on it, too. The snowflakes on the card, although they are difficult to see, are stamped with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. The card itself is made from Hero Arts Grenadine Layering papers. Color on the outside, white on the inside so there's no need to put another piece on the inside. Love that!


This card is my favorite of them all and it is a shameless, flat out copy of this card on Vicki's Clips-n-Cuts blog. Do go visit her blog and have a look around, she has the best tutorials and great ideas! The only thing I changed was the background stamp, because I don't have the one she used. Again, I trimmed out the ornaments - I am becoming a little better with scissors! I have become quite fond of the Distress Ink sponging as well, I love the effect.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful day!
