Three from one stamp set

As you have probably realised I am a sucker for HobbyArt stamps and when I saw this Winter stamp set I know it would be a hit. All three images are so gorgeous and very clean and crisp so the colouring in is very easy.

Card One - Christmas Wishes Deer
Although you can't really see it I have used White Liquid Pearls on the tree and covered it in glitter to make it stand out a bit more.

Card Two Seasons Greeting Grouse 
So nice to see a grouse with the beautiful hints of colour on its feathers. Definately a favourite this year.

Card Three Winter Wishes Robin
The wording around the edges are also part of this wonderful stamp set. I did use these stamps many times over to make this years Christmas cards however I did change the way I stamped around the edges and only used one greeting on each edge. Saved time and looked just as good.

Don't forget my card classes are held at Rainham Social Club, Station Road, Rainham, Kent. At each class we make three cards using all different methods, stamps, dies, etc and if you would like to have a go you can now book by clicking on the relevant pay button down the right hand side of this page.

More cards tomorrow. xx

Merry Christmas Poinsettia Card

Loving the Sizzix Bigz Poinsettia Die. Nice easy card just layering the die cuts and glittering the edges of the petals with Glamour Dust.
The stamp is an old one but love the snowflakes in the letters "Merry". This would look lovely in blues as well. xx

Merry Christmas Bauble

I love this Woodware Christmas bauble. You can just stamp it and colour in or, as I did on this card, cut out parts of the bauble making it look more delicate.
So easy to make and they can look so different with a blue or darker green background. I love easy cards xx

Christmas Robin Card

This little robin Sizzix die is brilliant. Not only can you make quick and easy cards with it, you can also adapt the robin to use on cards throughout the year.
A little bit of glitter, a nice greeting stamp and in minutes you have some lovely cards. Made for card class a few weeks ago I think this one is a favourite this year.xx

December Birthday

or of course it could be a Christmas card if you wish.
Stamps are from the Creative Stamping Magazine and the papers are from a paper pad I found in Poundland. Who said you can't make Christmas cards on a budget.xx
