All set up for Christmas

These are two card I've made using Little Claire Designs September Stamp Club set.

For the first card I used the penguin, snowflake and greeting stamps from the set.

I began by stamping the penguin using a Memento ink pad and coloured him in with ProMarkers. I cut the penguin out leaving a small white boarder. I covered a square card blank with dark blue paper. For the snow I used a strip of Whitewash Core’dinations pale blue card. Onto this I stamped the greeting and then attached the penguin.

The snowflake design was stamped onto a panel of acetate using VersaMark white ink pad. I attached this to the card using doubled sided tape. I drilled two holes through the card and tied ribbon through the holes which then covered up the double sided tape.

My second card uses the poinsettia and greeting stamps from the set.

Again I started by stamping the main image, this time the poinsettia. It was coloured in with ProMarkers and I added gold highlights with a Sakura pen. I cut this out leaving a small white boarder. I stamped the greeting and mounted it on gold card.

I cut a square of gold and green card for the background. On the green card I stamped the poinsettia using a clear VersaMark ink pad.

I attached all the layers onto a square card blank. I added the poinsettia with foam pads.
