Holiday Blessings

Hello sweet friends.  Today is Day 3 of our September previews for The Greeting Farm.  Today I'm showing two cards using the new clear set . . .

Holiday Blessings



My first card has the sentiment cut out and matted with nestabilities.  The papers are by Melissa Frances and I've used an eyelet border punch.  The snowflakes are popped up on foam dots.  I added some Glamour Dust and a pearl to the snowflakes, and a few little heart buttons under the sweet sentiment.



My second card features the same fabulous clear set and I've colored the string of lights with copics and colored pencils.  I used Glamour Dust on the lights to give them some sparkle.  I added some ribbon, a bow, and a button to finish my card.

The Holiday Blessings clear set includes lots of fabulous sentiments for your Christmas cards.  I know I'll be reaching for this set a lot for my holiday cards.  I'm really impressed with the quality of The Greeting Farm's clear stamps too.  They stamp perfectly every time!

Would you like a chance to win the Holiday Blessings clear set?  Then stop by the The Greeting Farm Blog to find out all the details.  While you're there be sure to check out the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT.  We're going to be previewing the September release all this week so be sure to check out their blog each day.

Anita - I like how diverse your cards are, the first one being more 'traditional' Christmas colors, while the other feels more contemporary (and just as cute!) I'm envious of the people you send cards to. :)

I love how you made the light bulbs sparkle AND glow at the same time! And I really hope the inside of the first card says 'and a Happy New Year!" :)

Hi Anita, I just have to tell you that I love your cards that you have made. The first one reminds me of when I was little and looks like vintage (grab you Coca) and enjoy Christmas with your family type of card. Very very pretty. Your second cards is just as beautiful but in fun much more modern way. You seem to have a talent for you doing both styles and that is just awesome. I am so enjoying seeing these stamps in such inspiring ways. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Lisa G
