Stamp Off Personal Christmas Cards

I have got to say that Buffy and Susan have been
knocking it out of the park with challenge banners
and challenge cards.  I am so honored to be sharing with them.

 For our challenge today, we are presenting our own
Christmas card.  This is a hard one because I actually
made 3 different Christmas cards to send out (I get
bored producing a single version).

But I will have to stick with my favorite Holiday mini
bundle; Star of Light with the Starlight Thinlits Dies,
on page 9.  I love the elegance of this set,
with the ability to produce multiple layers of stamping
and 3-d goodness.  I used the retired In-Color Mossy Meadow
card stock with the delicious and current Sweet Sugarplum.
They are so pretty together!  Throw in some Silver
Glimmer paper and we are good to go!

Now that you have seen my Christmas card,
please hop on over to see the delights being
offered by my friends Susan and Buffy.

Christmas Pines Z-Fold

I had made this card for a Stamp Off challenge with
Buffy and Susan, but ended up making a different card.
I used one of my fav bundles; Christmas Pines and
Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies on page 19.

I layered this card with strips from the
Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack on p 13.
It really is Warm and Cheery!!

Joyful Nativity Christmas

The Joyful Nativity set, on page 35 of the regular catalog is lovely.  You stamp the word "Joy" and can then
add an image to the word.  It epitomizes the Christmas
sentiment in a single word, making this set work so well!

Star of Light with Festive Birthday DSP

This is a card that I made for a challenge and ended up
using another.  It features my favorite bundle, the 
Star of Light set with coordinating Starlight Thinlits Dies,
found on page 9 of the Holiday catalog.  The DSP comes
from the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper pack
on page 173.  I really enjoy this DSP pack because it
works for so many occasions, not just birthdays!

Christmas Pines Noel

From my perspective, the Christmas Pines set, with
coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlit Dies (p 19 of the Holiday
catalog) is a perfect Christmas set.  The images and
Thinlit Dies are reminiscent of my childhood in Wisconsin,
and the sentiments feature a pleasing font.  I really
enjoy this bundle because I can make a variety of cards,
with relative ease.  I hope that you enjoy this one!
