More Christmas cards.........

I went in to Spotlight the other week and they had a set of Kaisercraft Twig & Berry postmarks stamps going out for $2. Being one for a bargain that I would actually use, I bought them and came home to have a play.
One of the ladies at a crop night I attended recently was making her Chrissy cards and she had pre-stamped a series of postcards using her friend's range of stamps. This inspired me to try something similar with the ones I had bought. I mixed in a couple of old stamps from a cheap set I bought at the $2 shop one time and also a recent greeting from the Stamps of Life set - Lights for Christmas. Used some really old paper that I have had and didn't like so found that by using the distress ink on it, it was enough to tone it down and I felt comfortable using for the background. 

These cards were based around the ornament die-cut that I bought almost 2 years ago at a local card shop. Finally put them to use with some Technique Tuesday greetings and peel off.

Free stamp from a magazine teamed with a Stampin' Up single purchase stamp from this season and a Merry christmas stamp that I bought a couple of years ago at Riot Art and Craft. I coloured these with markers - Whispers brush markers and used Spellbinders Label 8 dies.

Last is with the freebie stamps from a magazine earlier in the year which I really like. I had this stamped and sitting around for a while waiting to be put together.

Just a little variety for you  to look at.

Thanks for droppin' by.................
