Christmas Cards

Over the last week I have made a start on my Christmas cards.  Here are a sample of the ones I have done so far.

For those of you that know Stampin Up products I am sure you will recognise most of what has been used!  I am really enjoying using their products at the minute, love the easy colour co-ordination.

The first one is a small card - just under 4" square. The card was bought already cut to the shape. The bauble is from the Ornament Keepsakes stamps and cut with the matching framelit.  I added a little bit of glitter for a bit of sparkle.  Card, paper and ribbon are all SU and the message on the bottom is from the SU Greetings of the Season set.

The second card uses another SU paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.  The stamp is from the gorgeous Lovely As a Tree stamp set with little extra glitter.  

I came across a technique last week called Triple Time Stamping that a fellow member of the TCT design team had used.  From google I found a video tutorial and had a play.  This card uses the SU set Snowflake Soiree, a couple of shades of blue inks and matching card.

The inside looks like this:-

For my final card I adapted the Triple Time technique to just 2 layers again using the Snowflake Soiree stamps. The centre stamp is a single stamp from SU called Frosty Friends and I added a touch of colour with my Copic pens.  The Merry Christmas was another stamp from the Greetings of the Season set.


Thanks for your comments they are always appreciated.
