Christmas Tree

What a wet couple of days!   A perfect day today for staying in and crafting.  As it will be Christmas Day in three months time, (where have the last nine months gone!?), I decided to batch make a few more Christmas cards and made 10 of this CAS design. 

The image and sentiment were from a pre-loved set of Stampin' Up stamps, 'Snow is Glistening', which I bought recently.  They were stamped using a Stampin' Up 'Night of Navy' ink pad on a cream rectangle, layered on a navy blue mat and attached to a cream 6" x 4" card blank.

 I am joining in the following challenges:

Last Sunday I went to a Stampin' Up Crafternoon and I made these four cards and four tags.
We all came away with the Stampin' Up '#Elfie' set of stamps, so I'll be making a few more Elf Christmas cards and tags over the next few weeks. 


  1. Brilliant colour on the stamp and sentiment Liz a great card

  2. That's a cute little elf stamp and love your cards and tags you made with it. The Christmas tree card is gorgeous! Love that navy color too.

  3. A beautiful CAS card Liz, love the stamps and the navy/cream combo- so elegant!
    Your Elf cards and tags look fabulous, what a productive evening!

  4. This is a very pretty stylised flowery tree and a great sentiment too Liz, and a fantastic set elf cards and tags too. I look forward to seeing what else you make with these cute stamps. x

  5. Great CAS card, Liz. And lovely cards and tags from the stamping crafternoon. I wish we had card-making seminars in Greece! Hugs, my friend.

  6. Hi Liz,
