The card team is super excited to share with you the projects that we have been creating with this months release!  I have two cards to share with you!!

My first card features the NEW Christmas Text Background stamp. This is only a 3.75 x 3.75 stamp and I wanted to create a full card panel so to make it easy I stamped it twice and I cut them down to the size I needed and pieced them to a piece of gold paper I created by embossing the edges with the same gold embossing powder I used for the background stamp. To hide the seam I added a  strip of card stock to hide it. Before I attached the two background panels I did a little ink blending with red & brown ink to add a little texture to the embossed text.

The poinsettia image is from the Christmas Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped and embossed it with the same gold embossing powder to a piece of metallic gold card stock. I then fussy cut it out and popped it up with foam squares. As a final touch I added an embossed sentiment from the Christmas Wordfetti stamp set.

My second card features the NEW Holiday Greetings stamp set. This is the September Stamp of the Month and is FREE with any $75 order. Plus if you are in the US you will also qualify for FREE Shipping!

My card was super easy to create as the only stamping was the Season's Greetings sentiment from the set. I used a mix of papers from the Here Comes Santa Claus paper pad along with one of it's tags that I used to stamp the greeting on.

  12. Sheri, your first card is gorgeous & elegant. What a smart idea to stamp the background twice, then hide the seam. One would never know if you didn't say. I love this card. Your second card uses traditional Christmas colours & has lots to look at. Thanks.
