Christmas SOL

Again there was an online sketch at one of my Yahoogroups.
Really loved the sketch and I wanted to use it for this stamp, so this is not a large card, only 4,25"x4,25".

Have been making cards this weekend for all kind of Christmascardswaps I'm in. Really love the idea of sending cards to people and receiving handmade cards back.

Anyways... here's the card I made for the online sketch:

Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper & Stamp: Imaginisce; Ribbon: Stampin'Up; Punch: Fiskars; Baubles: StampingBella; Ink: Memento & Colorbox; Copics

SU Christmas Cards

Quite happy with this card (sorry for the bad photoquality...)
Found a card similar to this on the internet last week (please let me know if it was at your blog, so I can tell overhere :)).
Love the simplicity of it and just needed to be scraplifted ;)

In2Stamps Christmas Card

Hi there!

Here's the first DT-card I made for In2Stamps.
When I first got the stamps I hardly couldn't believe I was going to work with them!
I mean, really great quality of rubber, deeply etched print, great inked image and some awesome details!

Really loved working with this stamp. It gives me the Christmasfeeling of a child. Seeing all those toys (that you, obviously, want) and it also gives me the Charles Dickens' feeling.
Just love this stamp a lot!

Stamps: In2Stamps (image) & Stampin'Up (Sentiment); Cardstock, Patterned paper, Ribbon and red ink: Stampin'Up; Baubles: StampingBella; Copics; Snow: Aleene's; Ink: Memento

See you later!

Will be sharing a photo of it in the weekend of 14th November, as I will get some presents at the KreaDoe, a huge craft fair overhere, for some lovely items.

Can you handle it...

Here's a Christmascard I made today for an online sketch.
Loved the sketch and immediately knew what I wanted to make.
So here it is....

All materials: Stampin'Up; Baubles: StampingBella


Recently bought these Elzybells-stamps and I just think they rock!
Great images and sentiments for any stamper/scrapbooker :)

Wanted to make a card with the stamps, but then I realized the sentiment could perfectly be used for a doorhanger, so I made that one.

Here it is:

Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft) and Stampin'Up (red); Stamps: Elzybells; Ribbon: Stampin'Up; Ink: Memento and Versamark; Copic markers; Nestabilities; Pen: ZIG

Thanks for coming!
