My first Christmas Cards..... Tim Holtz Blueprint Stamps and Stencils


These are the first Christmas Cards I have completed so far this year..... I have made a few toppers but not finished them yet as every time I sit down to create some more something happens so I never get to complete them..... I am sure may of you will know the same scenario, lol ..... It's never a dull moment here that's for sure.....

Yesterday I had a day away at Eileen's Workshop and what a smashing day we all had..... Below are what I have finished completely and these "Inky" ones are my favourites. The others we were supposed to make were Stamp and stick gems and sparkly accents onto the stamped image ..... well I stamped the images and go so engrossed in my "Inky" Cards I never got around to completing the other ones..... I must also be honest the weather was that bad and I had a long way to drive that I left early to get home in the light and boy what a journey it was..... I promise to complete them when I get a spare moment and show you the results.....

Anyway enough of the waffling as I am sure that you would prefer to see what have made .....

Here are my cards and I am really pleased with how they turned out..... Hope you like them too and you can grab some inspiration to get going on making your Cards..... after all we only have a 30 days till we need to get them in the post ..... whoops I must start mine again soon..... haha ha !!!


I'm off now to feed the Dogs and Cats and then to finish off another large canvas I'm working on before I set to do my Christmas Cards..... There sure is no peace for the wicked..... Lol !!!
Take care and will be back soon
Lots of Love
