Christmas Stamper Stack.

Unfortunately I seem to leave my Christmas creative moments until just before Christmas, so a group of friends decided to come over and attend a stamper stack class so that we could all get a start on our cards for Christmas.


Below are the two cards I created for the class with the new Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive as the main colours.

The first card uses the very versatile set Seasons of Joy ( Page 20 in the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue).  I have also added ‘bling’ on the star.

The second card uses the lovely Contempo Christmas set (page 23 in the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue).


I have stamped the tree in Old Olive and then coloured in the main part of the tree with the Cherry Cobbler marker – remember when you use this little trick do not forget to ‘huff’ before you stamp!


I did not think I would use the  new 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Striped Grosgrain Ribbons but they  just adds a little more to the card.
