Merry Christmas Card | Noelle Mouse Stamp Set


The first card I'm sharing with you today features the adorable new Noelle Mouse Stamp Set by Beth Silaika. I began by stamping and then coloring the adorable mice and some of the other stamps from the set with my Chameleon Pens. Next, I fussy cut all the images and added them to the mice to dress them up for the holidays.

To create the background, I placed the Rounded Swirl stencil on top of a piece of Blue Denim cardstock. I then inked over it using Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans. I love how it makes the design pop despite the monochromatic colors that were used.

Peace On Earth Card | Purrfect Christmas Stamp Set


This next card uses the new stamp set by Chris Dayton called Purrfect Christmas. This set is so purrfect for all the cat lover's out there, but for this card, I wanted to show how you can use this set for more than cat lover Christmas cards. I began by stamping the Music Background Stamp with Kraft Ink. I then stamped the tree image from the Purrfect Christmas set using Christmas Pine ink.

I added Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to distress the edges of the main card panel. For the final touch, I stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and added a couple of jewels for a touch of bling.

Season's Greetings Card | Scripty Holiday Incentive Stamp Set

The final card I'm sharing today features the new Incentive stamp set called Scripty Holiday. This fabulous set of holiday sentiments ships free with any $75 purchase.

To create this card, I used the new Gina K Designs Foil Mates Backgrounds Blizzard and foiled it with the new Fancy Foils in Sparkling Silver. These new foils are glitter without the mess and I absolutely love the shimmer and shine they add to a card.

I then finished off the card with the Season's Greetings sentiment from the stamp set. Another quick and easy card that would perfect for mass producing as one of your Christmas cards.
