First Christmas Cards!

Good morning all!

Where's the nice weather we're supposed to be having this weekend? It's damp and miserable looking here in West Yorkshire this morning! I hope there's a bit more sunshine wherever you are?!

Today I have a few christmas cards to show you that I've recently made with my newest craft purchases, some Paula Pascual stamps. I saw these designs over on Sarita's blog and as soon as I saw them I just had to have them! These images are ideal for those quick multiple make christmas cards and perfect for me as I love the CAS look!

Apologies for the quality of the pictures, it's hard to get good shots with this miserable weather!

For these first few cards I decided to stick with traditional colours of green and red.








Materials


CS: SU Whisper White and Old Olive. Burgundy CS from my stash

Images: Paula Pascual Joyful Bubbles set

Sentiment: Paula Pascual Christmas Sentiments set

Tools: SU Polka Dot background stamp (retired), SU Stamp-a-ma-jig, SU Ink in Old Olive, Versafine ink in Crimson Red, 1" Circle Punch, Sponges for inking the
edges

Misc: Glamour dust for the baubles (altough I don't think it shows too well
on the pictures)


I made all of these cards in 10cm x 10cm size, cute little christmas cards perfect for my colleagues at work. I have made some more christmas cards using these stamps but using a blue color palette. I'll show you these later in the week!

Well I'm off to Julies SU Catalouge Launch this afternoon. Really looking forward to it as I'll get to spend a few hours catching up with my crafty friends and also get see my mum who I haven't seen for a few weeks!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
