... and that's a wrap

The Christmas cards are done for this year. Well, maybe. I bought a new stamp on the weekend, and it may have to be used. I also got a new House Mouse stamp. Colouring fun in my future, I think. 

Here's the last (I think) of the Christmas cards. 

 I bought this paper in the States- Love it- it's gold lettering on a kraft background. I stamped Dasher (Stampin Up) on kraft paper in brown. The sentiment is also Stampin Up.
 This paper was also a US purchase. There were 12 different old fashioned Santas on the page. I cut each one out, added a frame of either green or red paper and put on an antiqued paper. The brown around the edges is a Ranger distress ink (can't remember the shade)

 One of the few non-Christmas cards I've done in a bit. I had the flowers left after another project, and coloured them with light purple ink. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.
 I LOVE this stamp... it's probably my favourite one. It's from Stampin' Up. The actual stamp is quite a bit bigger, but I can pull different elements to create several possibilities. This one was coloured with Copics, and then rubbed over with tea stain distress ink.

 There's a bit of a theme with these cards- this one is also Stampin' Up. Lovely as a Tree has many possibilities. This one was stamped in rust ink and I used rust coloured card stock to frame it. The image is stamped on a light beige card.

This tree is really pretty- I punched the holes where there's a star on each branch, which allowed the shiny red background show through. The snowflakes were stamped on the background in a light grey.

I've been working on a photo album. I'll post pics of them soon...
