Hi everyone! I have to get some posts in while it’s snowing here on the blog! lol Sharing the two cards I had the gals make at our stamp club Christmas party a couple weeks ago.
I stamped the silhouette image and sentiment from Hero Arts in black multiple times with the MISTI and Versafine Onyx Black ink, then using clear embossing powder I embossed it on a periwinkle color card-stock. The stamp set is, Greatest Gift CL559 if you want to google it.
Then I inked it with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and an ink blending tool.
The pretty Avery Elle pierced postal frame die cut and mounted with strips of craft foam. I covered both sides of a piece of craft foam with Scor-tape and cut it into strips. Thank you Cindy for that technique! It’s awesome!
Here I used a snowflake background and word from Taylored Expressions and Crafter’s Companion watercolor paper. It’s really white. The holly and berries from Reverse Confetti.
Very easy A2 size and flat for mailing cards! I hope you’re enjoying this creative and busy season! It is going by way too fast for me! The tree is up and decorated and some of the other decorative things are out. yay!
oh presents…well…we’re working on it! lol
Take care! Thanks for stopping by today!
P.S. I have one TE Christmas Card class kit left if anyone is interested! I’d love to sell it! Photo and price on the ‘For Sale’ page, a tab under my blog title.

I adore your Noel card Pam — sorry I have not been around – November was really quite hectic.
Thinking of you!!!
I’m glad we got to make those cards!
Both of these cards are wonderful and would be easy to duplicate.
Sorry I missed the party !!!!
Love both of the cards – trying to do more CAS – and I don’t think I could pick a favorite of the two.
So beautful Pam!
We loved making both of them. The cardstock for snowflake die really made the die special.
So absolutely gorgeous, Pam … LOve the snow!!! and that fabulous cover plate!
Those are lucky ladies in your Christmas stamp club!!! And I’m loving that AE postal die cut!! Sleeting here at the moment. Thank you Pam – YOU inspire me!!!!
Oooooh these are both so fabulous! That first one is so simple but oh so beautiful! The snowflake background on the second one is just gorgeous! Beautiful work!!
Love both of these!!!
They are so pretty, I love the dark black of the image, great shading and wonderful sentiment on the first. You can’t go wrong with snowflakes and holly together , so sweet!
Beautiful CAS cards Pam! Love the distressing on the first and I’m still amazed how you cut n paste those intricate dies. Happy Holidays!
It’s amazing to see how you can make relatively simple cards look so splendiferous! I’m intrigued by the stamping and sponging on the amethyst card stock. What a great idea that is for a nighttime scene. The extra white watercolor paper sure looks white! Pretty script on the Noel. Two awesome cards!
Love both of these! The second is my favorite! LOVE that bright white with the touches of color! Brilliant cards!
Oh what great cards Pam! I’m trying to catch up on some of my emails….and then back to card making for the holidays….and shopping….and wrapping….and decorating….and baking….and oh, yeah, work! LOL! 🙂
I didn’t see a link to the nativity card stamps. Can you let me know what it’s called and where you found it? Thanks! Heading home from the Bahamas to cold Iowa today. I’m in for a weather shock! LOL! Have to get the cards finished up this next week then off to FL for Christmas with the grands. The thought of not getting my cards done and buying them is making me crazy! ;0) Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas Pam, and thank you for all your inspiration!
So pretty! Especially love the silhouette card! Thanks for sharing…hope you are well!
Both gorgeous, the first for it’s bold statement, inking and the second for it’s delicate, beautiful nature!
Two totally different but equally beautiful cards, Pam. The inking and red heart are just perfect on the first card… and the colours on the second are so clean and fresh. Love them both. X
