Christmas Cards & More

I finally got a chance to do my Christmas twinchie for INKURABLE STAMPERS this morning ( had to wait for a cool day to bring out the heat gun LOL)
Firstly, I stamped the DRD stamp (from THIS set) for my b`ground onto kraft card using red StaZon ink, & stuck it onto a 2"x2" piece of chipboard, trimming & sanding the edges.
I then stamped an AL flourish stamp onto a red BB cs piece with Brilliance ink (Cosmic copper) & clear EP & "coloured in" the flourish with a copper-coloured metallic gel pen.
I then over-stamped my twinchie with the same flourish using Versafine (vintage sepia) ink, & clear EP, again colouring in with gel pen, sticking it carefully in place with some ds tape. The edges of the red cs were inked with Brilliance ink & covered with clear EP. I used a Collections chipboard tag, inking the edges with the copper ink, & added the word Joy (from the same set of DRD stamps). I attached some ribbon, & added some glass beads in red, green & blue, & some metallic embroidery thread, & layered the card front to some copper DCWV cs, sanding the edges to show the white core.
& This next card is for SANDIE`S 12 Weeks of Christmas Competition...I`m pretty sure you can still join in, so check out THIS POST in her blog for the details.
I again used the small b`ground stamp from THIS DRD stamp set (it has quickly become my new best friend, even though I got it last year LOL)
I then added some silver foil, & layered the beautiful angel image (from PAPERFORESTDESIGNS onto some silver coloured DCWV cs, adding the sentiment (also from PAPERFORESTDESIGNS ) a little ribbon, & some tiny rhinestones.
& lastly, a quick Thank You card (I`ve a few of those to do ATM)
using some BG pp, a tree stamp from Hero Arts, & the Thank You is from THIS DRD set
The brand new DARKROOM DOOR DT was announced on the weekend, & if you check out the BLOG, you may be lucky enough to score yourself some new stamps...
Now go & create something :)

Hi Vicky
I love your card. I like the way you embossed the scroll. I'll certainly take that idea down.

Wow you've gone to a lot of effort on the twinchie card Vicky. I just love it. It's so stylish.

Great job of the other cards too - I shall add them to the mix on my blog for the "12 Weeks of Christmas Challenge".

Thanks for joining in Vicky. Everyone is most welcome to join in.
