Stamped Christmas Cards (2)

Hi all. My stamping craze continues. I've been having fun with some of my new stamps. This time it's a fab folky stocking stamp from Noolibird. Another batch of stamped cards arose over the last week and weekend. 13 new, Nordic themed cards. Naturally, the reds and white / ecru dominate. I used Vivi Gade papers - series: Copenhagen.

A large card with 4 hanging stockings - a great display idea and a cardlift of one of Noolibird's cards. originally the stockings were stitched to the card but I used a baker's twine as a string and brown craft paper as backing . Stamped words - The Waltzing Mouse stamps.

Same idea but a different arrangement :)

Red, white and green? Why not!

A card with a piece of  acetate stamped and edged with patterned scissors. Looks good in sunlight and with the sparkly snowflakes.

Blue, white and gold... I liked this combination. Should try more cards in this fashion.

Couldn't resist making a couple of green cards too.

Quite pleased with this set of cards. Surely I won't run out of them, will I? Now moving on to stamping reindeer designs :)

Time for Hand-made Monday at Handmade Harbour. Very curious what other crafters have been up to recently. Do join in! 


  1. I love your cards with the different textures. I also like the slightly unusual colours - it makes such a change from the usual.

  2. Just gorgeous - I love that Scandinavian style and the cards with the bakers twine are just divine. The green ones are lovely too, and make a lovely change from the red (although I love those as well!!)!

  3. These are fabulous.I love the stamps and the Nordic feel.

  4. I love these - the stocking stamp is such a lovely design. I love your blue and white ones in particular. They're all lovely though. Also - yes, it's this month's Craftseller (in the shops tomorrow) that has the Scandi papers - you'll love them!!

  5. You are so talented! I especially love the red ones - they look quite Scandinavian! :)

  6. I love the Nordic theme and lets face it with lapland round the corner they do it so well. The red and white is stunning

  7. The Nordic theme works so wel for your Christmas cards" love them.

  8. wow! a fabulous selection here! my absolute favourite is the red and white stockings on brown paper but all are gorgeous :) x
