Let's Celebrate Christmas!! Stamping to Share Demo Swaps Part Two!


This is part two of our November Stamping to Share Christmas Card Swap. If you would like to see Part One, just click on Christmas Card Swap Part One. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!



Shelly Lommel's card is a dreamy swirl of soft color that was rather difficult to capture with my camera. It's one that makes you take a full breath when you see it in person!! She used the Peaceful Pines stamp set that coordinates with the Perfect Pines Framelits.  The background is sponged onto a piece of Very Vanilla. The "sprinkles" are from a Gold Wink of Stella Pen. Gold Glimmer Paper plays a starring role on this card and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits provide the sparkling snowbanks. 


Cute as cute can be! Pam Salinas created this adorable card with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle. She paired up the moose with a "wreath" created with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits . . . such a great idea! The tiny little red balls on the wreath are small circles punched out from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. The "snowy" background paper uses this same paper pack. 


Wow! This card from Cindy LeMire makes you scratch your head as in HOW did she do that? It's called the Joseph's Coat Technique. First you stamp or sponge your paper with a collage of color. Then you stamp your background image (Cindy used the Merry Medley) with VersaMark ink and clear emboss it. Then brayer or sponge a darker die ink color over everything. (Cindy used Early Espresso.) Use a kleenex or paper towel to rub the darker ink color off the embossed image and all the colors will pop through!! It makes a stunning background for the ornament that Cindy created with the Merry Tags Framelits


 Elegant is the word for the card created by Irene Boesen! This card is perfect for sending out en masse! It used just one color of paper and one color of ink. It's lightweight so there will be room for a family photo and a letter, too. The front panel of the card is embossed with Softly Falling, which is a perfect backdrop for the Peaceful Pines which are cut using the Perfect Pines Framelits. There are many sentiments out there that would work on this card, but if your curious where this one is from, check out Santa's Sleigh in the Holiday 2016 Catalog.


Dawn Michels created this pretty Father Christmas card where the lower half opens outward . . . kind of like a Dutch Style Barn Door! This image is perfect with the This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper that Dawn chose for this card. The sentiment is from the Host Set in our Annual Catalog called Time of Year and cut out with the Bunch of Banners Framelit Dies. She also accented this card with the bows from the Holly Berry Happiness Bundle


And finally, here is the card that I swapped for our Christmas Card Swap. I used the stamp set called Merry Mice. I have a detailed blog post on this very card with links to all of the products I used as well as a How To Video which you can see by clicking on Stamping to Share Merry Mice.

Beautiful cards! Any chance you could do a video of how to make the fold Dawn M. used for the Father Christmas card? I don't care what set you use; it's the fold/cutting directions/dimensions I'm trying to ascertain.

I've looked for Dawn Michels and I can't find her. I would love to find directions on her Father Christmas card. I googled Dutch Style Barn door card and didn't find any results.
