Celtic Christmas

OK in honour of the Irish and since I love celtic music what better way than to make a Christmas card with some old irish designs. It can be for a man as well. It has that style. I used a stencil and with the tools I made it a bit 3D and then painted the design (after trying chalk etc.. which didn't make it come out). I added oak leaves and holly for some flair and well a Christmas March card

Holly Chritsmas Closeup

OK This is a close up to see a bit of the shimmer from the paints. I am not the best with the camera so some glare is seen but it is the best I can do

Holly Christmas

This turned out to be one of my favourites. I cut out the holly stamp and it is raised up. I painted it with twinkling H20's (I love those paints) and the inside of the card states Merry Christmas. It was a bit of cutting but it is Michael's and my mom's favourite

Three Trees

This card is simple yet I find it a bit elegant...with, of course, sparkle:)

Glitter In Green

I can't help myself. I just love glitter. It is hard to tell but the card has quite a bit. I just love Stickles!


Well I was off to a late start but I got my five Christmas cards done. This is one of my favourite stamps. There is just so much one can do with this one.
