Some Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone, having been the lucky winner of the Parade of Stamps contest at H&M Stamps, I having been receiving LOTS of new stamps. I LOVE getting packages! So here’s some of the things I’ve made recently.

The first is made from a stamp from H&M Stamps called Percy Builds Frosty, he is even more adorable when you actually have him in your hand!!! I paper pieced his mitts, hat & scarf. I also couldn’t believe it when I realized I had paper I bought last year with almost the exact same design as the new EF called snow dots, so I had to use them together. And of course the dazzling diamonds for snow always looks so nice & sparkly!

The second card is also made with a stamp from H&M Stamps, it’s from the set ‘Christmas is a time for Cookies’. I’m really happy with the way this turned out, and it reminded me of the plate of cookies that is of course important to leave for Santa. That’s what led me to create the ‘Hi Santa’ sentiment with the Justrite roman font. I also love the way the punched edge reminds me of a lacey tablecloth.

The third card is made with the new Flourishes set called ‘Sleighride’ This deer is very similar to the deer in the “Flourishes Christmas’ set, except he’s smaller & facing the opposite way. Isn’t he elegant!

I made this for Faith’s (Markies’ Mom) Tuesday Chat challenge. Every Tuesday Faith posts a challenge on the Flourishes forum at SCS. There’s also a chat at 7pm every Tuesday, you should check it out!

I have admirerd Faith since I first found SCS. She has influenced many of my stamp purchases, and now Paper! I just love the Basic Grey figgy pudding paper. I first noticed it last year on Faith’s creations, and I finally have a pkg of my own, it arrived last week! I’m so proud of myself for actually using it, I’m terrible for saving the stuff I love best, it’s habit I’m trying to break!

I hope you all have a great day,
Don’t forget to vote!
