A little Christmas in June.....

I spent today with one of my very best girlfriends.....and even with 7 children between us, we managed to get some stamping done!!!  We decided to get a head start on our Christmas cards for this year, and we chose from the stash some (retired :-( ) Christmas product from past years.  Thought you might like to have a quick look at what we made.....
Card 1 - Rudolph
Very simple but loving the red nose......use the smallest pearl from the Basic Pearl pack and colour it with a red Sharpie permanent marker.

Card 2.....Penguin.
Stamp twice, once in Basic Black, once in Real Red.  Fussy cut the beanie and scarf and pop up with little pieces of dimensionals.

Card 3 - Snowman scene
Stamp the tree 3 times, making sure that the middle tree is slightly higher.  Fussy cut and pop with dimensionals your snowman.  Punch border is just 2 large ovals punch and attached to the back of the sentiment.
Card 4 - Christmas Cheer.
Celebrating the DSP pattern.....a very simple (if large) sentiment panel with a sideways bow.  I still love the wide grosgrain ribbon - long since retired, but a favourite none the less....thank goodness my girlfriend has quite a supply!!!  Ties the most gorgeous bows.

Colours: Whisper White, Real Red, Baked Brown Sugar, Garden Green, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Stamps: Cheerful Christmas, No Peeking (both retired), Wondrous Wreath
Other: Nordic Noel DSP, Basic Pearls, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon
Happy Stamping.....Manda
