LOC Christmas Joy

How many sleeps is it until Christmas - it is getting less by the day! LOL!  I am loving creating Christmas Cards with the newest release Layers of Color art stamps

The Christmas Blessings art stamp set is one that is very popular - but no surprises there with gorgeous images like this one

It co-ordinates with Spellbinders Labels 18, which makes it so much easier to create a lovely card very quickly.  Naturally it was but out using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur - my cutting tool of preference!!

Some Christmas Sparkle has been added to the dove with 3D Kindy Glitz - and some light shading on the script to add a more vintage feel

A Martha Stewart Snowflake, sparkle and bling - just says Christmas, although here in Australia it is far from snowing - Christmas is HOT HOT HOT!!

Lace, Liquid Pearls and dimension and it is complete!!
