LOTV Christmas Cards

I do love my LOTV Christmas stamps and the only problem I have with them is that I can't get them all inked up each year and made into cards!  But here are some I've been playing with and managed to create with for those last minute makes .. .. ..

Here's the first card with Christmas Carol stamp coloured with my Copic pens then a white pearl pen for the snow.  The papers are scraps of Nitwits and the die cuts are from Marianne Design with the stars cut from the MD sparkly snow paper that's actually a thick card!

And here's the second card with Gifts on the Tree, one of my new snowmen stamps so the first time inked then coloured with Copic pens.  I've added clear glaze to snowman's coal buttons and the baubles. Another scrap of paper but not 100% sure it's all Nitwits. Die cuts are again by Marianne Design with pearl pen added for the berries and centres of the flowers.

And here's the third card with My Snowman Friend, he's a new stamp for me this year but I've used it once before and think he will be a favourite as he's not too big so perfect for my smaller charity cards.  He's coloured with my Copic pens then more of the white pearl pen for snow and a scrap of Nitwits paper along with old brown card stock from my stash. The snowflake is from a Joy border die that I always have trouble cutting out, but it is a nice design and I managed to rescue this part and tuck it in.  The faux embossed stitches on all my cards are created with an old Marianne Design border die that lives permanently on my desk, then just highlighted with my favourite chalk inks.

I hope you like my easy LOTV makes, I do enjoy the colouring most of all!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a

Festive Yule!
and a
Merry Christmas!
