Stampendous Classic Christmas

It’s been wonderful to walk through our vintage images and share so many wonderful samples from our designers with you. These fantastic stamps are great for making a vintage looking project in no time and or be ready to mail out those classic style Christmas cards in a jiffy.

Now here’s a sweet little vintage style Owl Ornament tied to a pine bough. Jamie has colored this image so nicely that it steals the show on her card. She’s written up instructions and you can find it on our website under the Projects section. I remember one or two of these on the family tree when I was growing up, don’t you?

Vintage Yule in the Spotlight

The spotlight this week of our vintage Christmas images look fabulous on their own, but when our Essentials are added they have a magical factor.  If you want to see the magic up close on any of our Essentials, you can check them out on our website, or look at the January Catalog (pages 78-91) to zoom in on swatches of all our current product list.

Tobi Crawford added a halo of Spoonful of Snow around Ribbon Bird and it makes a shiny texture to the once smooth white cardstock. Love that look!

Sparkling and shimmery is newly fallen snow, so why not add some on your snowy card? Debi Hammons added Micro Glitter to the snow of her Christmas Cottage card and boy does it shimmer and sparkle. Trust us.

Janelle’s Train Postcard card is stately sparkled with Micro Glitter on a few elements across the horizon and the oval frame. It’s just enough bling to add some interest to this vintage collage.

This Ribbon Bird card by Pam Hornschu is gorgeous with lots of Frantage embossing on the bird and Ornate Border. The extra sparkle from the Halo Glitter across the base completes this card nicely.
