Twas The night Before Christmas: Quick Cards

I had a set of Christmas cards to make for some friends and wanted them in the same style but each one individual.  The colour of the mat makes a big difference too.  I used the Night Before Christmas stamps from Claritystamp, currently available in the Christmas sale.  

There are 15 stamps in the Night Before Christmas set by Claritystamp, available individually in the sale.  I stamped seven of them on separate pieces of card (7cm x 7cm) in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white EP.  I then brushed two different colours across each topper using Artistry inks (and one Distress Ink) and Clarity stencil brushes.
Lavender Dash (Artistry) / Tumbled Glass (Distress)

Fall Fiesta / Fancy Fuchsia (Artistry)

Lime Kiss / Green Garland (Artistry)

Black Shadow / Blaze (Artistry)

Moon Crater /Ocean Reef (Artistry)

Orange Popsicle / Rich Mocha (Artistry)

Cotton Candy / Morning Dew (Artistry)

I then matted each topper onto a piece of card, darker than one of the colours of ink and added each one to a 3" x 3" pre made card blank.

Bright Green

Dark Fuchsia Pink

Dark Brown

Dark Pink/Purple

Navy Blue


One of these days,  I will turn the stamps into a story book and then I will put them in the correct order (unlike here lol).  In the mean time, they are brilliant for last minute, quick Christmas cards.
