I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend.
Today I would like to share a couple of Christmas cards I made using two of the new Chocolate Baroque Christmas Stamp Sets. One of the things that I do enjoy about CB stamps is that they can be mixed and matched with other stamps in their range.
I have always loved traditional folk art and as soon as I saw the little Sleigh, that is where I wanted to go with this.
Please click on the photos to enlarge.
This card is really straight forward. I just stamped the Carousel Horse and the Sleigh onto coated card stock using Black Archival Ink and colored the images in with felt pens.
I then edged the stamped piece of card with Distress Inks using a sponge and stamped, again using Distress Inks the little Snowflakes.
I made the card up as seen, just adding a strip of bling to tie the two images together.
Inspiration for the colors on these cards came from this little fellow here
For my second card, I used the Snowy Penguins Set.
The Penguins are so adorable and not necessarily just for Christmas.
I made this card in exactly the same way as the first card. I stamped the penguins multiple times with the aid of masking tissue. I then just added a bit of yellow to their bodies. I also added a few little felt pen dots between the snowflakes to lift them a little. I made the card up as seen and added a little ribbon.

I hope you like my little offering today.

Take Care and Happy Stamping
