One Stamp for Three Lovely Nieces


Every holiday I send out cards to my many nieces and nephews. Sometimes the cards have money in them and sometimes only stickers. But the kids enjoy getting them either way. And I enjoy making them too.

Sometimes each card is very different from the one that a sibling or cousin might receive. And sometimes I just make them different enough so that there won’t be any arguments over who’s card it may be.

That was the case this year for 3 of my nieces.

Christmas Stage by Penny BlackThis card features a glitter mixture of red and green. It wasn’t hard to mix the colors because, they had been premixed by a curious niece who got into my craft stash a few years ago. (Ah the temptation of all things sparkly).

In order to make the glitter line look so crisp I used double stick tape and simply poured the glitter over the card and poured the excess back into the jar.

Penny Black Christmas StageI used double stick tape for this card too. However, I changed the look of the card by stamping various Christmas sentiments in Versamark embossing ink for a background.

Penny Black GlobeThis card features  a graphic background created with embossing ink and different Christmas sentiments too. I decided to change the orientation of the card and to use chunky glitter to make this one a bit different from the first two. I love the way the glitter looks like fur on her jacket and hat.

I will be sharing one of these cards over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stamp It Out 2013. You can play along too. All you have to do is create a project with a stamp. And you could win a $50 gift card to SSS!

I will also be playing along at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Bling It On. You have 13 days left to create a card featuring something sparkly to try to win a SSS gift card.

Happy Stamping,

Mo
