Stories of stamps, paper and... ★★Christmas is Coming★★



post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for the new Curtain Call Challenge!
















We have a new challenge over at

(Stories of stamps, paper and...)

★★Christmas is Coming★★












For this challenge we will have Valentina's Creations as our sponsor!!!  The prize is a digital kit that the winner will choose in her shop!!!

I did some quick stamping/embossing for a clean and crisp set of Christmas Cards.

paper:  sei chalet  stamps:  impress/snowfall border, neat & tangled/simple christmas & winter wishes  ink:  zing white  other:  divine twine/red solid, coral solid, deep pink, green solid & solid teal

I picked up the Snow Fall Border stamp at Impress last year.  Love the fine detail that good old fashion red rubber stamps give you:


The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled's Simple Christmas:


I like how the different colored Divine Twine gives each card a different look:


The remainder of the cards use the new Neat & Tangled Winter Wishes for the sentiment:


The SEI paper looks like woodgrain paper, don't you think?


I think the Solid Teal is my favorite, how about yours?


Coral Solid is another one of my favorites:

The Design Team has more inspiration for you!

My card set was very much inspired by the current challenge over at Muse!

Muse

The very sweet & funny Michele Ferguson is the Guest and she's challenging us to use a sheet of paper and make 3 cards:





















I used her same concept but cranked out 5 cards...call me an over-achiever, but really if I don't design the cards with the extra 2 panels now, they will get lost in the shuffle.

I love the uniformity of the design but with a smidge of differences.  Thanks Michele for that challenge, I can now add 5 cards to my holiday card stash!
