Christmas Sparkle

I promised to show you the Christmas cards from Friday’s Stamp A Stack.

Now you all know how much I love Baroque Motifs stamp set so I just had to try it on a Christmas Card and how nice is this??

This card is just so easy and turns out so elegant especially when you add some lovely Satin Pomegranate Ribbon to finish it off. The Merry Christmas stamp is from Occasional Greetings.

We had 10 show up for the Stamp A Stack so there wasnt a spare seat around the table – it made for a fun night with lots of family stories and laughter by all.

The second card we made was one i made last week and was so happy with it I just had to share it at the Stamp A Stack and it got the thumbs up from all which gave some relief because we are all different and like different things.

This Card uses the Snow Burst set from the Spring Mini Catalogue and has a great selection of different snow flakes in different sizes. I have used the masking technique here and it gives dimension to the top layer without too much effort. The greeting for this card comes from Festive Favourites and I thought it was perfect for this card.

Recipe:
Stamps: Snowburst, Festive Favourites
Inks: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Whisper White
Accessories: Bashful Blue Grosgrain ribbon, sponges, silver brads, mini glue dots and dazzling diamonds

Here is a close up of the centre of the large snowflake showing the glitter on the top of the brad. All you do is pop a mini glue dot on the end of your brad and then dip it into the dazzling diamonds and you have instant bling! and who doesnt love bling?? Well better be off to bed so I can get up and prepare for Monday’s Stamp A Stack! Happy Stamping!

  1. These are both geat – I must agree with kristie with liking the first card best.. Baroque Motifs is such an elegant set to use and I love the way you made it so Chrstmassy. TFS

  2. Oh, I don’t know which one I like the most! But probably the Baroque one….I think I’ll be borrowing that idea for some of my Chrissy cards, it’s super elegant. The snowflake one is nice too…maybe for my US psf’s who actually do get snow at Christmas (instead of 40 degrees and dying of the heat). Thanks for sharing 🙂
