This is one of the Christmas card designs I've made this year. The robin stamp is from Visible Image and he fits perfectly inside the circular scalloped Nestability with a red layer behind the image. The background paper has metallic red holly berries which don't show up on the scan but look much better 'in the real'.

These are four ATCs that I've made recently for Christmas swaps. I think the poinsettia was a cover mounted stamp from Craft Stamper last year. The stamp of the three birds on a branch is from another free set of stamps from this Christmas and the last one is a Smirk stamp

These are two ATCs made for a Christmas Tree swap - they had to include peel off stickers. I used the positive peel off on one and the bits left over on the other. The top and bottom borders were done with a Fiskars Border Punch and finished with gold dot peel offs.

This is a swap card made for one of the Yahoo groups I belong to - each month a member chooses a theme or technique and this month it was my turn. My choice was winter.
The stamp is from Whiff of Joy, coloured with Promarkers and then with some Stickles added. I've backed the image with pale blue card and the paper is from an old DCWV pad. Finally I added a white peel off on the blue punched circle.

I love these Oriental characters and thought this backing card went well with the images and also the words. The characters are from Woodware and the words from a plate from Katy's Corner. The card is from a pack of Kanban seconds I bought at the last G Mex craft fair.
