I think I have enough Christmas cards made by now! Current count is 51! Here are some great ideas for doing a quick card after being inspired by Jennifer McGuire. I made some last week and did some more with the same design but using brighter colours this time. The small stamps are from Hero Arts, sentiments from Hero Arts and Winnie and Walter and the glitter tape from American Crafts. I love the glitter tape and have been using them for a lot of my Christmas cards this year!! I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.
Here is my last minute entry for this month's PTI Blog Hop. I was almost not going to submit as I do not have a lot of PTI Christmas stamps. I then decided to just make tags instead using various distress inks for the background (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Iced Spruce and Broken China). Thanks for dropping by!

Having a little play with layered stamping on Kraft using white the the background colour. The inks I have used are Ranger Dye Inks with Hero Arts Unicorn white and Mid-tone inks. The stamp sets are from PTI. I loved how they turned out! Here is the link to how it is done! Thanks for dropping by!

This is another set of cards I made for Christmas using distress inks and perfect pearls mist to create the sky background. I lost my texture paste and would have loved to put some white stars on the card, but never mind, I was happy with the result! I'm adding this card to Merry Monday#181- Blue and White with texture. Thanks for dropping by!

When I saw the current Runway Inspired Challenge photos, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! This card took a little while to do as I did it over two stages. I used the Altenew Painted Flowers (just perfect) and stamped the outline image on watercolour paper. The images were coloured with Distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserve and Mermaid Lagoon (I really needed Wilted Willow). I purposely left some areas uncoloured so that it is the same as the photo. When dried, I fussy cut the images and didn't get around to assembling them until the next day. The sentiment and die is from Mama Elephant. BTW I visited the Banana Republic store in Champs Elysee when I was in Paris last month. While I had everything out and spare flowers, I ended up making 3 cards!

I'm still churning out Christmas cards. I've done just over 30 cards, another 20 to go! I've been inspired by this week's CAS(E) This Sketch for this series of cards I made. To keep myself sane (I don't like to do too many multiples of the same design), I'm making batches of 6 cards at a time. Here is the one I made with the sketch and while I have the MISTI ready, I've made variations of the the same card below. Back to the Craft Room....

Hi all, I'm just taking a little break from making Christmas card! This card is based on the sketch and colours of the current Fusion card challenge photo. I pulled out the pretty Altenew Peony set (first time I have inked them since getting them months ago!) I used the Hero Arts mid-tone inks with highlighting using Copics and a white gel pen. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Now, back to more Chirstmas cards!
