More new supplies, this time it’s the lovely ladies at Jingle Belles who are asking to see what Santa brought.  I’m using another sentiment from my new Kaiserkraft Christmas Sentiments set along with two foliage stamps from an Impression Obsession clear set by Sarah Phelps.  I have a confession to make though, those IO stamps weren’t a Christmas gift this past Christmas but the year before that!  This is however, their first outing!

My first card uses the holly stamp from the set and two colours of Versamagic Ink, Cottage Ivy and Tea Leaves.

The sentiment was stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk on a scrap of kraft card and cut out with a Spellbinders Grommet Tags die which was threaded through with red ribbon and secured on the back of the white panel.

Apart from the ribbon the only other embellishment is the red Stickles on the berries.

The second card has the same LO, but I used a white card blank instead of the kraft, I also went with more modern colour scheme of greens and pink.

The inks for the pine branch are Versamagic Hint of Pesto, Aloe Vera and Tea Leaves and the sentiment is in Memento Rose Bud, the little berries are also Rose Bud Ink.  I used my cropodile to cut a mini “berry” dot from cling mount foam.

I added some Crystal Stickles randomly to the pine branches.
