- Use the sponge daubers to soften the edge. I particularly like the Whisper White sponged onto the Chocolate Chip cardstock to add that 'snowy' feel.
- Stamp more than 1 Santa image and use dimensionals between layers to add a bit of pizzazz. I have added crystal effects to the buttons on Santa's shirt.

Over the next few days I will show you the projects I designed for them to make and I have to say that I think they all did a wonderful job replicating these, in some cases even putting their own twist on the original design.
I did make one crucial mistake though by using stamp sets that had been retired ... silly me. Thankfully there are always more new and fun stamps being introduced so they are bound to find something else they like.
This first one is a very basic design and one I copied (partly) from the card on the cover of the current Idea Book and Catalogue. I love the crispness of this card and it was a quick and easy design to complete.
Cardstock: Whisper White; Chocolate Chip; Certainly Celery
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Ribbon: Certainly Celery
Stamps: Office Accountrements
Other: Mat Pack

Cardstock: Real Red; Glorious Green; Whisper White
Ink: Real Red; Glorious Green; Basic Black; Whisper White; Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Loads of Love; Time for a Tree
Don't try this at home ... a paintbrush through the wheel really didn't work so well, so make sure you remember to order a handle for your wheels!!
Cardstock: Certainly Celery; So Safron; Whisper White
Inks: Chocolate Chip; Buckaroo Blue; Regal Rose; Versamark
Stamps: Scribble This; Punches Three (hostess reward)
Ribbon: Certainly Celery; Chocolate Chip
Punches: Scalloped Edge
I have stamped 3 images and used dimensionals to give height to each layer. Again I have used Crystal Effects to gloss up the pram.
Cardstock: Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: A Holly, Jolly Christmas
Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip; Versamark
Ribbon: Real Red
I have adhered Santa with some dimensionals to give him some 'pop'; I have stamped the stars top and bottom with Versamark to give it a more subtle touch.
On that note the following are some projects I have been doing. Hope you like ...
