*Christmas Cards 2015 #33*

And unless I have some spare time, this is my last Christmas card for 2015....  I just love love love stamping for Christmas!

I really like how this card turned out....  a Cuttlebug embossing folder, a scrap of patterned paper, Labels 8 by Spellbinders, some glitter paper and two Impression Obsession snowflakes.  I love the look of the two corners rounded.

Thanks to everyone who shares on their blogs and to those who then share those cards on Pinterest.  I'm not sure where I would have been this year when trying to make my cards!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

*Christmas Cards 2015 #32*

So, I was writing up my Christmas cards... and it turns out I was two short!  So I have two more cards to share with you, both inspired by cards I saw on Pinterest.

I'm sorry but the photo doesn't look so great....
An Impression Obsession snowflake with some red glitter paper and white cardstock.  I added some bling bling to the snowflake and the card.

*Christmas Cards 2015 #31*

I think this will be the end of my Christmas cards for 2015....  I ended up deciding to do a handful of a few of my favourites from this year to finish off the cards I needed.  I was afraid I'd run out of time if I kept trying to come up with new ideas.

Christmas is most definitely my favourite reason to stamp....  but I'm going to try to create more in 2016.  Fingers crossed I can do it!

This is another card using that Stampin' Up Festival of Trees stamp set and the tree punch... and again with that great patterned paper and the even more wonderful silver glitter paper.  I am ddid my best to use up some scraps instead of throwing them out... I love both of these papers so much!

*Christmas Cards 2015 #30*

Another Impression Obsession die that I've had for a while... and never used.  I cut the ornament out of the front panel and attached it to the red shimmer cardstock.  I put the swirls back and adhered that to the shimmer cardstock, then cut out the ornament hanger out of red shimmer.  I stamped the sentiment in red ink and embossed it with some red glittered embossing powder I found in my drawer that I forgot I had!
