NOW... Mintay has 2 Christmas lines with extremely close colour palettes. White Christmas and A Very Merry Christmas. Both would worked beautifully.

Vintage Santa An oldie but goodie!

This stamp belongs to Tim Holtz set number 053, Letters to Santa. Very detailed so stamping requires some practice. As well it's important to use the right substrate or paper.

In these cards I used 3 different papers.
- Speciality Stamping Paper for the Santa image 
- Tim Holtz Woodgrain paper for the boarder
- cardstock for the embossing and card base.

Other products:
- walnut Stain Oxide ink
- Walnut Stain distress
- Black Soot Distress
- Versafine Morning Mist
- My Favorite Things Christmas Background
-  Honeybee Christmas Blessings
- Sizzix Bigz Die Poinsettia 
- Tim Holtz Die Holiday Greens
- Tim Holtz Snowflake Embossing folder
- Tim Holtz mica Stain Phanton mist & Decayed
- photo corners

Loved dipping in my older stash! 

Enjoy and create something pretty today ♡♡

Vintage styled Christmas Cards

Who here knows I am a Tim Holtz fan?!?!? Don't have to travel far down the blog posts to realize that.

Vintage is my love as there's so many hidden stories and history in things of age. 

Even though the prints used creating these cards are not vintage they are indeed prints taken from things that are, therefore visually the mind is open to "imagine" days gone by.

Enjoy and create something today!

Tags Galore!

This season has been occupied with all the bits and pieces from Tim Holtz Christmas 2023 collections. No stamping required in building these delightful clusters for large gift tags. The beauty is these tags are sturdy enough to be kept as hanging ornaments for years to come. 

As always, my desire is to stir the unlimited possiblities for creative release!
