Cute Boots

Another easy-to-make Christmas card, featuring a die cut stocking and matching embossing folder. I did a little sanding magic on the stockings to bring out their charm. The sentiment is Stampin' Up!'s Contempo Christmas, and it is stamped onto a die cut label adorned with eyelets.

Forever Evergreen

These cards were destined for a card tutorial that never materialized! Oh well! Got to roll with the punches at this time of year when folks are busy or catch the flu. (Feel better soon, my dear Angie!) These cards are simple in design and feature Stampin' Up!'s Evergreen set.

Watercolor Winter Festive Cards

These festive Christmas Cards feature Stampin' Up's Watercolor Winter and the More Merry Messages stamp sets.
Ink pads used include the new InColor Gumball Green (perfect for Christmas stamping!) and Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede. 
 Card stock is Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler, along with some SU coordinating designer papers. You might notice that I used a blade to cut out part of the pine cones so that I could lay them on top of the sentiment layer. Various bows finish off the look.
 Thank you to Sue Dyas for the inspiration for these cards (http://stampinwithsuzieq.blogspot.co.uk).
