No Christmas Stamps - Christmas Card

Hello all! I am sharing some cards today that have been in the works for months!  I picked up these cute little stocking embellishments at Michaels in the wintertime, and knew they would work with some non-Christmas critter stamps to transform them.  

I stamped out the images, probably in April, but didn’t get around to coloring, die cutting and arranging them all till this week.  

I just love how they turned out!  This style of illustration that Hero Arts does (I wish they would tell us who their illustrators are, but I guess that is a mystery), and then I added an OLD frame stamp and an even older sentiment.  Patterned paper for the wallpaper and floor, and voila!

Hero Arts Welcome Home stamps, Recollections Cameo Stamp set, unbranded sentiment.  Recollections Christmas plaid papers and other paper scraps.  Jolie’s Stocking stickers.

I would love to enter Rudolph Days for July and SimonSaysStamp’s Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.

I have actually made several more cards this week, so I will be back soon! Thank you for visiting!  I appreciate all your encouragement!

Christmas Card Goal to date: 35

Spotted your comment in my blog post Heidi about creating scenes for Christmas cards. These are fabulous - and having gone through similar I certainly feel your pain. Gorgeous results and so worthwhile though! You did a great job.

The stockings are just the right size too, that doesn't happen to often :) You did a great job with these!

These all came out so cute! So much work!! The stockings do really transform the images from "every day" to a "holiday" feel. Well done!!

You did a fabulous job on all these cute critter cards. The stocking really brought Christmas to the front and center theme!

I think I have some stockings just like that too!

Thanks for taking part in the July Rudolph Days Challenge.
