Two cards, four snowmen


I had my best day's sales this year yesterday. Looking forward to getting the Christmas decs up today and writing the Christmas cards. Might get the pressies wrapped this weekend too. Just have to go and collect a parcel and do some food shopping today and I am sure a coffee shop will figure in that trip too. These new Card-io stamps certainly helped me complete my Christmas cards this year. I could go on and on using them and will be making several of these to sell next year. I love experimenting with the different combinations. For this one I tried a blue/purple sky but I do prefer the sunset colours. I love the way repeat stamping gives a feeling of depth to the forest.

I would like to enter this into the anything goes challenge at Simon Says.


I stamped the foliage in greens and brown for this one and used green for the trees too. I like it but I prefer the black and white, what do you think?

Both versions are beautiful the black stamping is wintry whilst the coloured stamping gives an autumnal feel

I totally love these two cards Marianne, I love Card-io stamps and your designs are fabulous, great scenes. I love them both equally.
I bought new stamps this year, still not used and in fact I've not made any Card-io cards at all..... too much stuff!!, Kate x
