Addicted to Stamps and More: Christmas

It's time for a new Addicted to Stamps and More challenge, and this one is all about helping to build up a stash of Christmas cards! I suppose I could call this post "one stencil, two ways": 

This is a new-to-me stencil from my friend Julie, and I thought it would look good in red on white. After I had done that, I thought it might be even more fun with some texture, so used it again with glitter gel on some navy cardstock! (I'll be trying it in white on red, too.) I decided to use one horizontally, the other vertically. These sentiment strips fit nicely in the most open area of the stencil. A closer look at each:  

With the stencil so prominent, I'm adding these to the April stencil challenge at STAMPlorations
Lots of festive variety to inspire you on the ATSM blog - hope you'll join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white, Recollections red & Fabriano textured blue cardstock, Taylored Expressions Simple Strips - Christmas stamp, Versamark & festive berries distress ink, Wow white embossing powder, Simon Says Stamp holiday sweater stencil, Gina K. Designs/Thermoweb white glitter gel, Spellbinders mini Christmas sentiment strip foiling die, GoPress blue foil 

Pin It Now!

Both cards are lovely, the stenciling looks like embroidery. I like both cards but the navy/white with texture is my fav. all they need is a simple one liner sentiment.

Love them both! My goal of getting 10 Christmas cards done each month has been going well, but I need to make a push for April. I love these cards, and they may be my inspiration!

These are beautiful. I especially love the blue one. Maybe I'll actually pull out my set. Ha!

Love the Nordic look on that gorgeous stencil, Linsey and the two cards look so different in the colourways and orientation! Such a versatile pattern too and could be used for many occasions.
Hope you are well,
