Not Even a Mouse

For this month's Christmas stamp-a-stack we're making two very different cards but I love them both. The first incorporates some sponging and you know how much I love to get inky! This was inspired by two cards, one by Kay Kalthoff and the other by Connie Babbert.

Materials used:
  • stamps - Ornamental Pine, Gorgeous Grunge
  • card - thick white, island indigo, whisper white, soft suede
  • inks - Bermuda bay, island indigo, garden green, early espresso, whisper white
  • other - sponges, white gel pen, Dimensionals

Our second project is a CAS - Clean and Simple - card that utilises white space to give additional impact to the image and sentiment. This is a little stamp I picked up somewhere a few years back and never got around to using until now and I must say I find it every bit as adorable as when I bought it. 

Materials used:
  • stamps - 
  • card - thick white, real red, whisper white
  • other - markers, Dimensionals

Now we're halfway through our Christmas cards already, which quite frankly is a bit of a worry! Christmas comes around faster every year. 

Thanks for dropping by.
