It's time to get started with Christmas cards - before I run out of time and I have to buy some! I have so many Christmas papers and stamps and images its difficult to know where to start, but I reckon this one is a good one for batch making!
I've used the Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps "Beautiful Baubles" stamp set for the baubles and the "O Holy Night" mask to create the peace sentiment - The word was stencilled in sweet poppy stencil dimensions paste and I covered it in glitter while it dried, then removed the excess. I have also used my cosmic shimmer chalk cloud (which I love) to misty the edges of the blue card.
Happy Christmas

I love Heartfelt Creations dies. This was made using the stamp and die froggy frame set.
I stamped and diecut the image and coloured it using my watercolour pens. Then cut the watercolour card to fit my base card, edged it with a bit of pink ink and mounted it onto the card using foam pads. I then carefully stuck my coloured image into the frame.

I love the "Aloha!" stamp set from Hunkydory For The Love of Stamps, it was just what I had been waiting for to turn this little cross-stitch pattern into a special card. I just stamped it onto
tropical coloured card, coloured the centres and shaped the flowers before I decorated the card with them.

  This is my favourite Christmas DT card made with Hunkydory For the Love of Stamps "Beautiful Baubles" "Warming Words" and "Cosy Christmas" stamp sets, and its a 7" x 7" card so its really going to stand out on the mantelpiece.
There's a layer of 6x6 silver mirri card then I used inks and water on a craft mat to make a cosy coloured background and added a few stamped snowflakes. Warming Words sentiment was stamped onto white card and layered on mirri before positioning on the card.
I used Perfectly Natural paper to stamp and emboss the fireplace a couple of times then I cut it out and decoupaged it - the candles, clock and fireplace swag are also decoupaged. A bit of colour was added using my copic pens.
I stamped the baubles in green and clear embossed these before colouring them and adding diamond stickles to give them a bit of twinkle - they were all added to the card using silicone glue and a white gel pen was used to mark out the strings they are hanging from.
