Two More Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone,

recently I got some great new stamps form Germany - they are from the Renke Manufaktur. For a long time I had my eyes on them and finally I got my hands on them, doing a little internet exchange with my friend Elisabeth..... I used one of the stamps, which I had bought in two sizes - its called Bluetendolde. I love it, because you can use it for so many things, like what I did here, made it into a Christmas bauble. I heat embossed it in silver and gold (WOW embossing powder). The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.




I added a little strip of gold glitter paper on the side. And "hung" the baubles on silver and gold strings. 
Did you notice my new splashy watermark - Kylie made that for me and if you want one too, you can contact her - I made a link on the sidebar of my blog.


Stempelkueche - stretch your stamps
The Paper Players - black tie
WOW embossing powders - Memories (Christmas always brings sweet memories for me)

        Click here to enter our challenge and win some Wow! Embossing Powders!!

And then I made a second card, using only the larger Bluetendolde stamp. I die cut the circles (Lifestyle Crafts) and then stamped the stamp on the inside of the card. Added a die cut silver strip on the side and sponged the other side. The sentiment is by inkystamp - love that font and it says Merry Christmas in German


Since I thought it needs something else I drew two straight lines with Copics on the silver strip and also added one line to the inside (to cover up a smudge....)



The challenges I'll play in with this card:
Stempelkueche  - stretch your stamps
Simon Says - Bling it on
Jingle Belles - anything Christmas
