LOC Tidings of Joy

The Christmas cards are being created quickly now - I have many to get made so they can arrive on time

Layers of Color  has taken the stress out of creating Christmas cards with this gorgeous Christmas Blessings clear art stamp set 

This is only one of the images - I have cut it with the Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, these coordinating stamps and Dies and great, don't you think!  I have used my favourite cutting tool - the Spellbinders Grand Calibur!

The Layered Poinsettia Die, designed for Spellbinders by Nina Brackett is gorgeous in any colour, I have sponged  this one for a vintage feel.  Some lace and  green half pearls are the finishing touches.
