Today I'm sharing a quick and simple Christmas card using a lovely Winter Cottage stamp from Altenew. I inked my image with two tones of blue (Dusk and Starlight inks) to create a simple background. Then I aded little stars from Happy Holidays Stamp Set.

To finish my card I used Inline Alpha Die Set to create the NOEL sentiment. I die cut the letters out of gold glitter cardstock and popped up them with foam tape for some dimension.

First I stamped my sentiment and a floral design using two different shades of blue: Dusk and Desert Night. Then I added little elements from the Happy Holidays stamp set.

To create my second card I used a great stamp set to commemorate the year 2018, it would make the perfect addition for any scrapbook layouts, journals and New Year's cards!

2018

I started by stamping it in the centre of my card, and then I created my background using a floral image from the Charmed Stamp Set. To finish my card I used markers to colour in the numbers and added some black ink splatters.

That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Virginia Lu and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!
