Vintage Christmas - Whimsy Stamps Last Release of 2021


Hey Everyone! Can you believe it? It's December 1st and Whimsy's last release of the year! Wow! Where has the time gone!? 



I am sharing two vintage style Christmas cards today using kraft paper and a CAS layout. The stamp set I used is also called Vintage Christmas and is a clear set by DoveArt. 
I kept the design really simple and on the left card I only used white heat embossing and stamped the sentiment in black. A classic red ribbon and some sequins to decorate the card. 
On the right card I stamped the tree with dark green ink and heat embossed the snowman in white. The sentiment is stamped in black. This time I used a dark green ribbon to match the tree color and as well some sequins.

Ho, Ho, Ho, - Black and White Christmas



Ho, Ho, Ho, - come and celebrate another awesome Whimsy Christmas release with us! There are awesome stamps like the cutest reindeer and penguins as are there some amazing slimline products. One of them, the Slimline Diagonal Dots, I am using on my black & white Christmas card.


I decided to keep my card just black and white. One half of the BG being a pattern paper from the Christmas Eve 6x6 papers  released earlier this month and the other half was embossed using the NEW Slimline Diagonal Dots embossing folder. I love this pattern, soooo versatile and perfect for any occasion. Then I cut out the words Merry and Christmas each from black and white cardstock. I wanted them to be half black and white as well. I kept the design very simple with just a few sequins for decoration.

Oh Holy Night!

Hello Everyone! Here comes yet another awesome mini release from Whimsy Stamps! The card I created using the newly released 'Oh Holy Night' die set and 'Stained Glass Window' die set is below. 



I created a tea light card. It is a tri-fold card and I used vellum behind the windows. You can put a (or several) electric tea lights behind the card and the glow shows through the vellum windows. It serves two purposes.....a greeting card and a Christmas decoration. Makes a nice gift for family and friends. 


For the side windows I used the star dies from the 'Primitive Shaker Shapes' set. The 'Oh Holy Night' sentiment which is included with the 'Oh Holy Night' set was cut out several times from black cardstock and once from white cardstock. I then layered and glued them together for a raised effect. 

 
Here is a close-up of the main window. I kept the colors to black, silver, gold (shine and shimmer) and glittter white. I wanted it to have a more elegant look.



Here is the main window with the tea light on.
