Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 28

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all getting close with your preparations for Christmas and not making last minute cards as I am :D but if you are we have a nice challenge on DU2DS from today which is ‘last minute Christmas cards’. There’s great inspiration from my DT friends and a prize of some images so I hope you can join us.

I’ve used the ‘Christmas wreath’ digi, coloured with markers and glittered with stickles and teamed up the images for my three cards with some ‘My Mind’s Eye’ paper. I used the reverse side of the paper to do a punched border and I’ve done some edge distressing and doodling too. Quite plain designs but I was able to make them quickly.

As I’ve been writing this post we’ve had several inches of snow which is very unusual, I think I’ll be staying put tomorrow! TFL.

Wow, Chris, this wreath is just the perfect wreath stamp! I love how you used pink on the bows and decorations, and how you have pink in the dp to tie all in. These may be simple in design, but they are stunners just the same! I do love the shadowy background you draw around them too. That's your special touch that makes your images really stand out. Not to mention your top of the line coloring, shading and highlighting. Just perfect, as always!
And, what's more, I went to your digi store and my eyes bugged out again! Your Christmas angel is so beautiful, I and your puppy dog images are so cute! Way to go!

do you print it with regular printer ink? I'm a little afraid to buy digi stamps,afraid that the lines will disapear when I start coloring with my promarkers but your digi stamp looks perfect!!

Hi Chris, thanks for your kind comments left on my blog! Oh I do like these cards, I was thinking the style was a little different for you though just as gorgeous as all your other cards. How interesting that you think these are 'quite plain designs' and I was thinking I wish I could do something as complicated and gorgeous as that!
You keep leading the way Chris and I'll keep following while picking up little tips & gems from you. Thanks for all your inspirational cards and stamps this year.
Merry Christmas
