Today is my turn to host a new challenge at Allsorts, and I would like to see creations inspired by a Christmas carol or winter themed song. I decided to make two cards, because I wanted to use both of these stamps and I couldn't decide on just one Christmas Carol.
I love this stamp, it was one of the "had to have" ones from PSX that I discovered last year. I might have paid a little too much for it, but it was well worth it! As all other PSX stamps, they are only available on the secondary market now like ebay or etsy.
I heat embossed the image and used Zig clean color markers for coloring. Wink of stella was applied to the snow and I used a tiny Merry Christmas sentiment from the Penny Black set Holiday Snippets. Gold card stock was used for framing. I love this victorian scene!
My second card was inspired by "We Wish you a Merry Christmas". This stamp is also by PSX. There is just something about this old victorian style at Christmas time that I love!
Again, embossed on bristol vellum cardstock and colored with a mix of Zig Clean color and Distress markers. The sentiment is from an old set by Whimsy Stamps used along with a matching die.
This week we are sponsored by Tattered Lace and we have a wonderful set of dies to give away.
I hope you'll come join us for a chance to win. Details can be found here on the challenge blog.
I would also like to enter my cards to the current Rubber Retro challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes" but of course using older stamps. Although I've only owned these stamps for about a year, they are probably 15 - 20 years old.
Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
