Now on to the goodies!


My 1st card features the Festive Frames, Elegant Christmas Sentiments stamp sets and the new White Seam Binding Ribbon.

I first stamped my frame and sentiment and then cut it out using a Spellbinder Oval Die and paired it up with a Lacey Oval Die too. For some extra glam, I used White Glitter around the border of my oval.

Fancy Tags and Elegant Christmas Sentiments was used for my tag. My bow is from the New White Seam Binding Ribbon and a NEW Red Poinsettia.

My second card is our introduction to the new Vintage Postcard Add On I stamp set that coordinates with the Vintage Postcards set!

I first cut out my Label Die and then stamped on it using the Vintage Postcard set. I then added new White Seam Binding Ribbon and New Poinsettias for some glam.

I created the postage Christmas stamps on the corner of my card from this new set!

My second card features the Vintage Postcards and Vintage Postcard Add On I also!

I made a postcard from White Card stock using various images from both sets. I then added some green rhinestones and a Red Poinsettia for some glam.

On the bottom of my easel card, I stamped a sentiment from the New Holiday Expressions stamp set.

My 3rd card features a gate fold card using the Winter Wonderland, Holiday Ornaments and Holiday Expressions stamp sets.

I randomly stamped snowflakes all over the front of my card using pink, blue and green ink. The new Sage Seam Binding  was tied in a bow and added to the corner with an Off White Flower.

Inspired by Stamping Holiday Ornaments 2

I stamped the rope with brown ink and then fussy cut each ornament out and adhered it with a foam adhesive. I then added a sentiment under the stockings from the Holiday Expressions set.

Holiday Ornaments, Christmas Cheer, Fancy Tags and Elegant Christmas Sentiments using the Window technique helped create this Christmas card.

Although its hard to tell, the background was embossed with stars. I also bought some gorgeous light colored blue thread that looks so beautiful with the New Christmas colors.

As the card above, I lifted each stocking and ornament using some foam dimensions. I also added a Christmas tree and a Christmas wreath for some added Christmas charm.

For the tag, I lightly stamped snowflakes for the background on my tag. I then stamped Warm Wishes from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments stamp set.

For my last project, I made some Christmas tags for Christmas presents this year using lots of new stamp sets. I had so much fun! Smile

The first tag features Vintage Postcard Add On I with the Festive Frames sentiment. I then added some glam with a red bow, vintage brad and white poinsettia.

Vintage Postcard Add On I was used throughout this tag. I also stitched around the edges and then added some NEW Red Poinsettias.

Holiday Ornaments and Festive Frames was used for this tag featuring tan, blues and red. I love this Christmas color combination together!

My last tag features Festive Frames again with two New White Poinsettias.

    Joanna, you got me with the first tag! The holly encircling the sentiment – so endearing. The postcard stamped card next is beautiful with those poinsettias and little tags coming out. And the vignette you made with the window and 3-d effect is brilliant. I’m going to have to look up that ‘window technique’ you refer to.
    Anni, Impressed
