My cards were inspired by this week's Less is More challenge which is simply to use silver http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/week-88-colour.html
I got some AMAZING new stamps today from Stephanie who all you CAS fans will probably know from her blog Stamping and Sharing but yesterday she released her own range of stamps called Clearly Besotted - I ordered them yesterday lunchtime and they were on my doormat first thing this morning and they are FABULOUS! If you don't believe me, take a look at the set of Christmas cards I made with one of the sets...
I simply stamped and embossed the stripey tree from the Signature Christmas set directly onto a small square card, stamped the spotted tree onto white card and cut it out so I could pop it up on foam in the foreground. Finished with an embossed sentiment from the same set and a tiny pale blue star shaped gem.
Next I used the stripey wreath again embossed in silver, popped up on foam tape with a few green gem highlights and a matching green bow. Another great sentiment from the same set.
Finally I used the bauble - this one has 3 different patterns to choose to fill in the middle - I went with spots and added some red metallic tape. Simple but effective - I'll be making these into sets for Christmas.
Blog CandyAs it's World Card Making Day - I thought I'd give away a little candy to spread the joy - so if you're still with me and would like to add this lovely Fleur de lis Die from Die Versions to your stash, just leave a comment by midnight on Friday and I'll draw a random winner for it next Saturday.
Thanks for visiting - have a good day :-D
