Plan ahead seems to be the mantra for producing Christmas cards!
I'm in Bruges at the moment on a short break with my daughter so I have scheduled this post - so if all goes according to plan it should be mid morning on Friday!
If you follow my blog or the Craft Stamper Magazine Blog you may remember that I won the June Take It, Make It challenge, something I am very proud of as the card represented a departure from my usual style. As a winner I was invited to be on the Guest Designer Team for the August challenge. The challenge was launched at the start of the month and the idea is to create a card using any technique that has featured in the Craft Stamper magazine since the start of the year.
My first problem was which technique should I use! I have been toying with an idea for my Christmas cards and the more I thought about it the more I realised that the concept was ideal for this opportunity - so out came the stamps and the inks. I chose the Repeat Stamping Technique as showcased by Lydia Brooke Evans in the March Issue. As I will be making a number of these cards I have tried them out in different colours - you should be able to see a black and white version on the Craft Stamper Blog. These are the second and third versions:
Clearly Besotted Stamps
Simon Says Stamps
Stampin Up Inks
This is the card that I won the original challenge with:
