Nativity, Angel and Sparkly Trees...STAMPlorations Christmas Redux

Hello,

NEWSFLASH: Christmas Eve is three months away! Three! Oh my stars!

If you're like me - a 'nearly last minute' Christmas card-maker - then the STAMPlorations team and I have 'precisely' what you - and I - need!

Welcome to the STAMPlorations Christmas CUTplorations Redux Blog Hop


This hop serves to offer you:
  • incentive to start on your Christmas/Holiday cards AND 
  • the opportunity to leave comments for a chance to win one of two prizes: choice of two (2) Christmas word/phrase dies or a $15 GC to the store.

Commenting closes October 5. 
Winner to be announced on October 10 in the September Winners post.

My cards were pure delight to create. The first two feature the lovely Christmas Icons - Christmas Angel and Christmas Icons - Nativity dies, paired with sentiments from one of my absolute favourite sets, Warm Hands, Warm Hearts.




My third card (shhh...don't tell Shery I made a third one) showcases Christmas Icons - Christmas Tree #2 die, backed with glitter paper, and set atop the Christmas Tree 1 ARTplorations stencil, by Sanna Lippert), using Nuvo Glitter Glimmer Paste in Moonstone.  The sparkle, in real life, is soooo pretty!


Additional products: Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies
Distress Inks

Simple designs, easily reproduced (and wildly cheering three cards completed *grin*).  I'm planning to make several of these to mail; a few colour changes will keep me 'entertained'.

Time to send you off to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations; dazzle and 'festive merriment' guaranteed!

****Extra info:

From September 24 to October 8 (2 weeks) dies in the Christmas Dies section are 10% off - no coupon needed. The discount is automatically applied in the shopping cart. Use my code - STAMPGIRLCAROLM - for an extra 20% OFF

Your first two cards are stunning with the lovely background and the sentiment. It so embodies what Christmas really is. I do love the tree, too. The simplicity of the white and the embossing and some glimmer. [Bunny]
