For today’s blog hop I’ve created three cards to share with you. For my first card, I used a beautiful floral set called Winter Rose along with new Framed Die Set.


I used two shades of green to stamp leaves in the centre of my card and added my frame die cut popped with 3d foam tape. I also used the remaining centre of the die cut and stamped my sentiment on it.


To create my second card I used Majestic Mistletoe Stamp Set. I chose to use here the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sea Glass, Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves along with Puffy Heart and Buttercream for the berries.

I started by stamping the sentiment in black, and then I created my background. To finish my card I used black marker to add little dots on the berries.

My last card is very quick and simple. I used here stamps from Winter Rose set to create a very CAS Christmas card.

I inked leaves with Forest Glades and Evergreen and used Crimson and Ruby Red for the flower and stamped a floral arrangement. The sentiment comes from Peace on Earth Stamp Set and was stamped with Ruby Red ink.
