Be of Good Cheer Christmas....

This is another quick and simple yet effective Christmas Card, that's easy to mass produce, which at this time of the year, when I haven't yet sent any cards, as I am still to make them,  is a good thing.
This time I've used Be of Good Cheer DSP from the IBC and the Christmas sentiment from a hostess set.
Stamps:  Wacky Wishes
Ink: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla
Card stock: Gumball Green
Other: Be of Good Cheer DSP, Gumball Green Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler button and Bakers Twine, Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Windo Frames Collection Framelits.
Happy Stamping....Manda

Stamp-A-Stack 3

This is the last card that we made, and again I've used the Festival of Prints DSP Stack.....I love this for quick and simple Christmas Cards. 
I've stamped the 2 longer baubles straight onto the base card and then stamped the smaller bauble onto some scrap and used the Holiday Ornaments Framelits to cut it out and pop it up.  I've hand drawn the strings holding up the baubles....the straight line is in Raspberry Ripple (and I've used a ruler), the freehand curvy line ins in Lucky Limeade.
Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Petite Pairs
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Raspberry Ripple
Card stock: Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple
Other: Festival of Prints DSP Stack, Raspberry Ripple Ribbon, Basic Pearls (I've also used Dazzling Diamonds and it looks great too), large oval punch and Lots of Tags Sizzlits.

Stamp-A-Stack 2

This is the second card we made at the Christmas Stamp-a-Stack.
This one is so simple and elegant, and a fantastic one to mass produce.  And it's easily adapted to the DSP from the Stack in the Mini......just change the colour of your ornament, matting and ribbon.

Stamps : Ornament Keepsakes
Ink: Gumball Green
Card stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green
Other: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Extra Large Pearls, Festival of Prints DSP Stack

It's beginning to look a lot like......


And now that I'm on holidays, I'm slowing getting my creative mojo back....Yay!!
 So the first thing I thought I'd share with you are some gifts that I made this year.
I made a set of these magnets for each of the staff members who I work with at school, and they were also the gift that I gave to the ladies who attended my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.
They are based on an idea shared by my stamping sister Bec at a team meeting earlier this year.  The base of the magnet is a beer bottle top from the home brew section of the supermarket.  Run it through the Big Shot and it makes a cool embellishment with a bit of DSP and some Crystal Effects.  I've also used Crystal Effects to glue a magnet to the back of the bottle top and then packaged them up.
Happy Stamping.....Manda xx
