Stampin Up Hostess Seasonal Set - Christmas Card

Here is another Christmas card made with a Stampin Up set.

The central stamp is a Stampin Up Hostess seasonal set stamped in Island Indigo and then punched out.  The centre is then restamped and punched again.  This is all layered up and mounted at a jaunty angle onto another punched circle of Island Indigo cardstock.

This was all mounted up on some My Minds Eye Christmas papers layered onto, yes you guessed it, Island Indigo.

The corner embellishments are from Memory Box and are the snowflake corners.

This was such a simple card to do, particularly with all the punches being used.

LOTV Christmas Cards

 Almost there now with the Christmas cards I made last year, that seems strange, saying last year!

These two are both using LOTV stamps and very old My Minds Eye papers.  Really simple cards, which I think is what we all need when doing our Christmas cards.  They both have Island Indigo cardstock from Stampin Up as embellishments to the cards, which I think makes them pop a bit more.

Molly Bloom Christmas Fairy

 Here are some cards I made using an old Molly Bloom Christmas Fairy stamp.  I loved this stamp but have used it for a lot of cards over the last couple of years so have now sold it on, to make way for future stamps.  I tend to only use a Christmas stamp for two years and then resell to make way for new stamps.
The papers in the background are from My Minds Eye and the circular words are from LOTV.

Traditional Embossed Christmas Tree Cards

 Here are a selection of silver embossed cards I made using the same beautiful Christmas Tree stamp which I have had since I first started crafting.

All the cards have been embossed and then layered up onto silver and coloured card with co-ordinating gems added onto them and a splash of coloured ribbon.
They were really simple to make and the ones above are even A5 in size so made some special family cards with quite minimal effort.

Only a few more Christmas cards to show on here and will then catch up with my other cards made for the new year.

Papermania Christmas Card Selection

 Here are a selection of cards I made from a lovely Christmas set I got from Docrafts/Papermania.  I took the kit on holiday before Christmas and sat and made quite a few cards from it.

These are not my normal thing, but was very nice to sit and make on hols.
