Xmas ideas just to get you started.

Here are some more great ideas for your Christmas cards.

Woodmount Stamp

Here is another stamp (Deck the Halls)  that you may have at home already. It is one of those simple designs that you can do a lot with.  Toni has double stamped the image. The first layer was stamped on white and adhered to the card. The second layer is stamped on white and the leaves and berries were coloured in with Alcohol based markers. You could also use Distress Markers or Liquid Pearls. The leaves and berries are then cut out and adhered over the first layer of leaves and berries. The coloured in berries and the berries on the printed paper have Glossy Accents on them to make them stand out.

We can not get any more of the paper used above but you could use the ones below in its place.

Here is another sample of the Singing Angel stamp that we used yesterday. On today's sample she has been stamped and embossed in gold and coloured in. You can use Alcohol based markers, Distress Markers and Liquid Pearls to colour her in. Using the Spellbinder dies (Circle and Lacey Circle) gives you a different shaped card base.

Below is a new paper pad in stock by Hot Off The Press. It is a 6" pad and it is called Red Velvet. It comes with 24 double sided pages. Toni made the card below using the papers from the pad. We have lots of card to match the paper pad in store now.
