A Very Merry Christmas by Emily Loggans



My first card was created using the hand-lettered holiday set called A Very Merry Christmas by Emily Loggans.  This set is perfect for your holiday cards.  I did some watercoloring for the background, stamped the image with versamark and heat embossed it with Gina K. silver embossing powder.






Snowbirds by Alicia Krupskaya



My second card is made from the Snowbirds stamp set by Alicia Krupskaya.  These birds are so gorgeous and perfect for coloring.  I stamped mine and colored it with copics.  I created a distress background and used the background stamp by Gina K. called Elegant Script.  I created a panel with the Gina K. single and double stitched frames, added the sentiment and adhered the bird to it.
