Stamped Christmas Cards (1)

Christmas card making is something I always look forward to and I always can't wait to dig out my festive craft toys so I like to start early :)) I've recently had a stamping session using one of the fabulous festive stamps from Noolibird - Christmas Garland. One stamp but many variations of colours and backgrounds. I tried different inks and different shades of red but found out that not all of them worked well enough for me. I'm still looking for a perfect ink with such a shade of red that would look good on Nordic-style cards and would produce a crisp image. Some new ink pads to arrive from ebay soon!

Here is my 1st batch of cards. I obviously started with the red-white cards and used some brown craft paper as backing (I love using it!). Eco-style combined with a Nordic theme :))





Then I created a couple in blue...



and in green:

More stamped cards to follow soon.
Time to join the Hand-made Monday. Get clicking guys and head over to the Handmade Harbour to have a look at some crafty stuff.

  1. Love the third one from the top... the circular cut-out one. The faded color creates an antique kind of effect. And the embellishments have been used very artistically.

  5. I adore the turquoise. Christmassy but not too themed. A lady I know only displays silver and white christmas cards in her living room, so as not to spoil the colour scheme. Other colours of cards are restricted to other less formal rooms in the house... x

  7. Isn't it fascinating how altering the colours can give a completely different look!

  8. I really like these as they are so different from the normal cards you find. I really like the blue although whether I will feel the same come Christmas I am not sure!
