5 christmas trees easy card to make

Another super quick and easy card to make. 
I borrowed this idea from card making magazine I cant remember it at the moment but its a recent one with a free Penny Black wonder collection stamp.

I used stampin up whisper white & wisteria wonder cardstock. Wisteria wonder & smokey slate stamp pads. The free Penny Back stamp set christmas tree & joy, peace, love sentiment.

I stamped 3 trees equally spaced in smokey slate & two trees on the top & in between + the sentiment using wisteria wonder.

I added glitter blobs to the grey trees using dazzling details silver sparkle & dazzling details on the wisteria coloured trees- both from stampin up. You cant really see these details in the picture but it makes it really sparkly.

This is a great idea if you need to make a lot of cards in a short time frame.

Santa and sleigh in the night sky

This was another easy card to make. 
The cardstock used is stampin ups cherry cobber, whisper white and unknown brand of black.

I die cut the houses using stampin up homemade holidays framelits dies, cut them down to size as they were too high.

I cut out a 1 3/4 " circle using a punch & daubed it with stampin up summer starfruit for the moon. 

I stuck the houses & moon in place on the cherry cobbler cardstock using both sided adhesive tape.

I die cut the diamond background (from poppystamps) in gold cardstock. 
Stamped santa & reindeer using close to my heart santa claus holiday stamp then lightly glued & stuck down the diamond background. I added gold glitz dazzling details to the diamond background then stuck it to the card with 3d tape.

Christmas tree card

This was a very simple card to make but I think looks really effective.

I used stampin up cherry cobbler & whisper white cardstock, cherry cobbler stamp pad & dazzling details silver sparkle for the "bling".

The stamps used are from wild rose studios- CL 201- Christmas tree. The Merry Christmas stamp is from the same stamp set.

I stamped the christmas tree & the sentiment, added the silver sparkle on the larger stars/icicles, used 3d foam & stuck the card together. 
Thats it. 

Perfect for a quick & easy card. 

Christmas cards- Christmas winter scenes with 3D snow

I started these cards by stamping the winter scenes using heartfelt creation cozy winter days rubber stamps on white cardstock.

For the background I punched a 1 3/4" circle & used both the pieces for templates.

For the moon- I used a dauber & stampin up summer starfruit, using the cardboard with circle cut out template, lightly daubing & making it darker in places.

The night-time background- I used stampin up midnight muse and a large soft makeup brush. Brushed the stamp pad & lightly brushed it against the card stock, darker in places to make a textured background.

Both scenes were coloured using copics.
