A weekend of stamping...

This weekend I've had a great crafty time.  I got to spend time with my friends for the first time is a while.  We meet at Helen's place and had an awesome day.

 

I had a very productive day... I made matching cards in a box for my twin great nephews who turn 8 later in the month.   I'll share them once the boys get cards.  And I made a good start on some Christmas cards.

Merry Be Your Christmas

I have decided to try and use up some of my VAST number of Christmas PP pads.  I also used a new Nellie Snellen die I got from the Great NZ Craft Fair I went to on Friday. (As well as some new Embossing folders, a new stamp, a Wink of Stella pen and some stickers) I really like this die as the inner oval is part of the set of dies.  So you know the inner will fit.  The sentiment on this is a Kaisercraft one. 

Poinsettia Christmas

Next up is another PP and a Poinsettia stamp (the one I got on Friday) by Kiwi Stamping - a NZ company)  I stamped and embossed it three times, twice on red and once on green and fussy cut.  The sentiment is embossed twice on the red card.  It is a Kaisercraft sentiment.  

Seasons Greetings

More use of PP and my new die set.  Very CAS.  The sentiment from Winnie & Walter and has been embossed.  

And finally an embossed card.

Embossed Holly

I added some Wink of Stella to the raised areas and some red watercolouring for the berries.  '

Thank you for taking the time to get this far.  I really appreciate it.

I also had a chance to make some more cards today.  I got another 5 cards done... all in my usual CAS style.  The mojo is simply flowing at the moment. 

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

What beautiful creations, Dawn! I love your new die and that gorgeous embossing folder. The patterned paper is also very nice. Good that you were able to get together with your group of friends, too.

You've certainly been busy! I'm so glad you were able to spend some time with family.
I think my favorite card is the poinsettia. It must have taken some time to fussy cut all that. But it's beautiful.
