Christmas 2015 - CCC15 Jan & Mar

I have been making Christmas cards again today for the CCC15 challenge for January and March.  Thought February was trees but the theme is snowmen so these are for March!!!

My January cards use the main Nativity image from HobbyArt Stamps and a sentiment and star from Wise Men by Marks Finest Papers. The first card was done on watercolour paper and I used Gelatos to add the colour apart from the star which was stamped in Adirondack ink.  The second card was done on a standard white cardstock and the colour added with Adirondack inks

 My two March cards use Robin's F4A255 challenge.  One uses bleach and the other salt although my salt wasn't in a good state (no dishwasher salt and lumpy sea salt).  I still liked both backgrounds so used them anyway.  The trees on the first card are a die from Taylored Expressions and the branch on the second card uses the Penny Black Nature Song die.  Spellbinders dies were also used.

  Thank you for taking the time to look.


  1. Beautiful cards Janine. Especially love the nativity cards. That image is so precious and I love the creamy colors. The tree branch with the red berries look awesome on the last one.

  2. OH wow! Your nativity cards are beautiful. That is a gorgeous image and I love the yellow glow. Your die cut cards are stunning! Love the berries and the coloring on the bird is amazing!


I love to hear your thoughts - please come back soon.
