Gingersnap holiday happenings: Lights





I love these theme at Gingersnap where we have to make christmas cards to a theme. the current theme is holiday lights. I just got this stamp(snow girl 6701-P) from The Frantic Stamper's own range and thought it would be just perfect.
I made two cards, I actually much prefer the simpler card. I just used ranger puff embossing powder and a frantic stamper holly stamp(6711-H) on the base card, and then simply 3D mounted the stamped image which has been coloured with yellow pencil to emphasise the light.

The second card has had the image coloured in exactly the same way, but I have mounted it onto gold paper and black webbing ribbon (from the frantic stamper) as well as the holly stamp and french text(1002-M ) on the corner.

  1. Joanne both are great cards. I can't decide which I like better, it is such a great stamp.

  2. Oh Joanne, I really like both of these, that stamp of the young girl is a winner, the holly stamp gives a good border on the first. The webbing is very textural and adds a lot to the second card, love 'em:D xx

  4. Thanks for your opinion on the stamps. I agree there's always a few that aren't too good and yep this one's better than 1009, at least the quote is good although I'm not too sure about the reality check, :O Could be construed as bit rude eh? Just call me old fashioned:D xx

  7. Both are beautiful but I prefer the second card, probably because I like lots of detail on cards. Hope to see you making more Christmas cards soon. Lynne M (BTW thank you so much on commenting on my Button Up card with the mannequin :)
