Is it Christmas yet?...... (by Sandra)

Hello everyone, I'm sharing some of the cards I have made with the new Christmas stamps.

The first one is from The Christmas Garden stamp set. What a gorgeous stamp this is, you can use all of it or just parts.
For this card I stamped in Archival ink and coloured with pencils.

My next card I stamped and embossed in gold and filled in selected areas with red glitter glue.

The next card is using the small Mistletoe sprig and sentiment from the the same set. I used a stamping platform and two shades of Distress Inks, Forest Moss and Bundled Sage, to make a pretty frame for the sentiment. Finished with some 3D liquid pearls.

My next pieces are from the fabulous A Tomte Christmas set. Who could resist these quirky gnomes?

This one is on a piece of grey board.  I made a background with gesso and dark blue acrylic paint. I added branches from Howling Moon stamps and embossed in white. Using Kraft card, I stamped and cut out the large gnome, coloured him with water colour pens and added the sentiment.
My next cards are little 4x4 cards.  These are so cute! I stamped with Archival and coloured with water colour pens and used the Shaded Baubles stamp to frame them.

This is the last card I am sharing with you today.  I cut 3 different sized circle apertures into a piece of card and popped the Tomte gnomes behind. These were coloured with alcohol markers.

Thank you so much for looking at my first DT cards and I'll be back soon with some more,
