Christmas Stamp-a-stack

I held a Christmas Stamp-a-stack a couple of weeks ago so I guess it is about time I put the cards we made up on here. We made 2 of each of these cards and also made mayching envelopes.
This first one uses Markers and a blender pen to colour the presents from the Crazy about Christmas stamp set. I have layered it on some real red CS and then on some summer picnic DSP (soon to be retired from the Spring mini Catalogue). I have used my real red marker to omit the Merry from the Merry Christmas stamp. Don't forget that you can order single real red and old olive markers till the 30th of November.This second one uses the So Swirly Jumbo wheel in Old Olive. The pine tree from the Lovely as a Tree set is then inked up in Old Olive then I took my chocolate chip marker and coloured the tree trunk directly on the rubber before I stamped it.
It doesn't show up very well but I used my two way glue pen to draw on some tinsel and then poured some dazzling diamonds glitter for some sparkle. The sentiment is from the Seasonal Wishes stamp set and has been embossed with Gold EP.

The last one uses the Solemn Stillness two step stamp set. I have used Always Artichoke for the tree and then the decorations have been embossed using Gold EP. The Sentiment is from the Many Merry Messages stamp set and it has also been embossed straight onto the Holiday Harmony DSP (soon to be retired from the Spring Mini Catalogue). The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The card base on the last two cards is Confetti White CS which I found makes a great strong card base for my christmas cards. On the inside of the cards I used the different christmas messages from Many Merry Messages.

If you have a group of about 5 people, live in Dubbo or the surrounding area and want to have a stamp-a-stack please send me an email at digitalfox1975@hotmail.com. The cost is approx $20 per head and you will get to make 6-10 cards depending on the type of card you want to do.

Thanks Debbie and Aunty Rob, We did have a great time. It was lovely having such a small group too. It was so rewarding seeing the smiles on their faces when they completed their cards. I hope I get to hold more stamp-a-stacks!
