The Magic of Christmas

Cheery Lynn Designs has come together this week with Hampton Art for a joint venture of projects. For inspiration, visit the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog, the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog and the Hampton Art Blog.  For a chance to win some wonderful prizes, visit the blogs each day, and leave a comment.  Prizes consist of a $25 voucher from Cheery Lynn Designs, and the gorgeous selection of goodies below from Hampton Art.

Hampton Art makes the most amazing quality stamps and the details in them are quite amazing.  As most know, I am not a stamper, so this was rather a different venture for me.  The stamp set I used is called the Nutcracker Sweet, and can be found in this 'Catalogue'.  The images on the cover were stamped using Color Box 'Black', and the edges in 'Brown'.  For the snowflakes on the inside of the card, I used the brown Color Box stamp pad - seemed to look nicer with the cream and red.

I added a pot and trunk to the Elegant Evergreen Christmas Tree, and used the Nautical Wheeler Doily as a base for a lovely lace appearance. Lace Corner Deco C, and Holly Leaves fill corners to decorate the front, and the inside hosts the French Flair Doily Stacker, along with the Holly Lace Flourish.
Also, there is a new challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog - come join the fun of the challenge for a chance to win a $20 voucher. 
Till next week
