Colour Me Christmas

Well it's the 20th of December.  Already.  How did that happen? Not sure but thankfully 95% of my cards are mailed and hopefully received.  The last few are for my family.  So when you have a huge Christmas card list like mine, you need to make a lot of cards, quickly.  So when a lovely friend of mine brought her 'Color Me Christmas' stamp set around for an Avid Inkers team night.  Well, I just got stamping!!

And I sure made a lot of cards using Jet Black Staz On ink, Copic markers for colouring.  I'll try and point out the feature products of each card as we go.  Are you ready!!

This card has a banner embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, little flags made from Season of Style Washi tape and a litttle bow of Bakers Twine.

This card features the Season of Style DSP stack, a little ribbon bow/knot on Sahara Sand cardbase.

Oops, colouring of the photo not so great here but also uses the Season of Style stack.  Such great values these stacks!

This time a Santa on the Season of Style background.  Love the Merry Christmas stamp too, so elegant!  I made a few of these little Santa cards.

I've used the Window Framelits for the Cherry Cobbler background.  I love how circles fit so neatly inside.

I've embossed the background with the Beautifully Baroque EF, and used my Oval Framelits for cutting.  This time I've used papers from the Winter Frost DSP Stack.
 I've used Coastal Cabana as the background oval matt.  The colour is gorgeous with the coordinating Winter Frost papers.

I've used the Expressions Thinlits Dies to cut out the word Merry from the Silver Foil Sheets.  It's such a beautiful and elegant finish to the card.  Change the placement of the words to add variety and interest to the card making too.  I recommend using the Tombow glue for adhering these little words.  The thin nozzle is perfect for this job!


A bit of variety with these two cards.  I've used the new Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to provide background interest.  Add some bakers twine and rhinestone gems to finish.

I think these little guys might be my favourite cards.  I love how they sit on the embossed background, have some little washi tape flags and a cute little bow.  Nice to mix them up a bit too.

Anyway, hope you liked my Colour Me Christmas card parade.  I think there might be a few more to share as I had a few stamped images leftover!!  All of the images have been stamped on Whisper White CS, cut out and adhered to a Whisper White background.  I've also used lots of Dazzling Details for glittery sparkle!!
