{Card Set Inspiration - Day 3}....and a Christmas Card


Before I get to my card set for today, I have another Christmas card to share with you.  When I saw this week's CASE this Sketch, I immediate thought of snowflakes falling instead of paint splatters. So off I went with my favorite Verve snowflakes.  I made two sets of these for the craft fair.  Super easy to mass produce which I of course love. I'm also entering this in the Festive Friday challenge whose current theme is snow. 

I also have a fall themed card set to share with you.   I love this technique that Jennifer McGuire demonstrated here where you stamp on top of white ink.  I've never tried this before but I love the end result.  I'll have to do this more often!

Loving the bright coloured snowflakes and that fun sentiment! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!
The leaves stamped over the white ink are gorgeous! Such a cool technique!
Your Craft Fair table is going to collapse from all of your creations! LOL!

I love your bright snowflakes on your first card and your leaves stamped on the kraft are lovely. I love the technique you used.

I just love brights on a Christmas card. There's just something fun about that color combo. I have totally got to try this ghosting technique. I adore how it looks and I love those leaves. You amaze me as always, Lynn!

Your card set is gorgeous! Perfect stamping! I love that technique too -

You all rockin out the cards this week Lynn! Love your card set. Are those Lil' Inkers Stitched Mats not totally addictive?

Maureen said...

You've been doing some wonderful Christmas cards. Gee you'll be all ready for Christmas before December ever arrives. Me I like the mad dash to create cards and get them out on time.

Great colours on your snowflakes - I love that they're 'open' - it keeps the design very clean! Thanks for playing along with Festive Friday!

Karen B. said...

Two amazing card sets Lynn!

Sara Mac said...

Lynn, I really LOVE both cards. The colors on the Christmas card look so cool. Love the striped paper too. And the Fall card ... gorgeous and simple. I love stamping on white ink -- especially on Kraft. It always looks stunning.

Michelle said...

You are on fire lately, Lynn! So many beautiful cards! These are no exception. Wow!

Jenny said...

I couldn't see past the splatters but yep... the snowflakes work well and love the striped border too :0)
I tried the shadow stamping but didn't quite work out so need to re-visit that one.... your autumn leaves look amazing though :0)

Geri said...

I saw that technique and thought it had a great look, too...haven't tried it, but yours turned out so nice! Thanks for joining us again!!!
