Nativity and some other Christmas cards

Another few more to share using stamped images again..
The first is a nativity Stamp from Inkadinkadoo, details you can find here.
For this card I used Craft Creations papers - Christmas carols Cream SR184P -  and a sentiment stamped & embossed in gold and used the nestability dies to stencil using brushed corduroy distress ink; with gold coloured glue dots to finish.

 Have added a photos to show some detail in the papers, ribbon and inking / stencilling... and I never coloured the stamp because it looked understated and 'complete' when I just used memento rich cocoa on the image, so nothing more was added.

The next card didn't photograph so well as the colouring on the angel was very subtle using twinkling H2O's and a bit of glitter was added, but it does sparkle a little without the need to add stickles or any glitter glue. I loved these papers from Craft Cations too - also in 12 x 12 - use the link above and the code is SR104P Christmas Holly Cream

The last card to share in this post is a Flourishes Stamp set I bought last year and love using  and am sure will use again next year!!  The doves are beautiful and I used this detailed stamp to demo the soft colouring effect you can get with artist quality pencil crayons.. I didn't get around to using the sansodor and blending stumps as it was nice just using the pencils on their own.


The papers on the doves and holly card can be found on Bearly Mine designs and are freebies from last year.
