Ornamental Christmas

I've had quite a bit of stampy time lately, so I have a couple more cards to share! I broke into my Verve stamps again *no surprise there;)*

My first card is for this week's ColorQ Challenge! This site always has the most AMAZING color combinations and this week's was SO fun!


Here's my card using Ornamental Christmas, by Verve!
I wanted to keep the layout really simple because I wanted these amazing ornaments to stand out! I stamped one in Bermuda Bay, one in Kiwi Kiss, and one in Rhubarb Stalk (Memento). The phrases on the ornaments are from Holiday Phrases. 
I also tied a little twine bow on the top of each ornament and then, using a ruler, I drew a line for the hangars.

For my next card, I wanted to create a card for MFT's Wednesday Stamp Challenge. The challenge this week was to create a Christmas card using Pure Innocence stamps. That was fun for me because I've had this cute one for awhile and was happy to ink it up...
This little sweetie is from "Sending you a little Christmas". I paper-pieced her coat with the Echo Park paper (that I can't seem to stop using!) and colored the rest with copics. It's kind of hard to tell, but I cut some snowflakes out with the MFT Snowflake dies and then glued them down on the white cardstock. I like how they very subtly stand out. Super fun challenge!

Well that's it for me today:) I've been reading most of the day and I'm TOTALLY loving this new series I'm reading. It's a series called "The Black-dagger Brotherhood" by J.R. Ward. and it's REaLLLY good! Love my vampire books, lol! Have a great Sunday!

Those ornament stamps are just plain wonderful!!! LOVE the designs on them and how simple they are. Gotta so love that cutie on the other card and her cute coat and the white snowflakes on the white background, great look.

Two fabulous cards, Amber! I love how you let those beautiful ornaments stand alone, and the baker's twine is the perfect embellishment. Gorgeous coloring and piecing on the second card, too. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ!
