Elegant Christmas dove


A masked oval coloured with Pan Pastels, the dove from the Snowflake Christmas stamp sheet and sentiment from the Holly Christmas set

Morning to you all, just popping in with a little heads up that there is another Stamp Addicts Christmas show on C&C tomorrow at 4pm, so thought I would share a few more of the samples I made for the programme.

Dove from the Snowflake Christmas set embossed in gold and sentiment from Holly Christmas set

You will find all the stamps that will feature on the show under the what's new section here.

Reindeer from the Snowflake Christmas stamp set embossed in silver 
onto Spellbinders Elegant Labels 4

Hope you all have a good Wednesday and if you are in the UK enjoying this glorious weather.

Gorgeous samples Brenda. Thanks for the heads up. Will set the recorder.
Having to stay indoors now - too hot for me to be outside. Ho hum - means I'll have to stay in the craft room as it's the coolest place.

All beautiful Christmas cards Brenda, some great ideas there thank you! We have had a whole week of sunshine and it's getting hotter every day. 27 degrees in Northern Ireland, woohoo! Even got a paddle with my walking stick in one hand and hubby on the other lol! Must have been a funny sight but I loved it :-) maddy x

Deborah said...

rachel said...

these are all fabulous Brenda - love the dove image especially - beautiful cards one and all! Good luck to your family doing the running - I'm guessing its the three peaks but I'm probably wrong - hope it cools down a bit - my five miler yesterday was a torment rather than a pleasure! Hugs x

Cathy said...

3 gorgeous Christmas cards Brenda, I love the sponging in the first one, those colours are beautiful. The embellishments on the other 2 are perfect, and now I've added more spellbinders dies to my wish list! :) Cathy x

Michelle J M said...

Three fabulous cards Brenda. I love the simplicity of the first one, I use that word very loosely as it is so clean looking! Love the others too, the easel one is super, love those large circle dies and I think the snowflakes on the deer is lovely and the bells are such a lovely finishing touch. Michelle x

Jackie said...

What a stunning selection this morning Brenda :o)

Paula (PEP) said...

Your rainbow oval in the first really allows the dove to take centre stage & I love the way you've balanced his wing with the sentiment. The second one is just such a joy with the little bells & shimmery ribbon & your final one classy with the way his antlers echo the 'ionic' shapes in the die-cut panels.
Paula (PEP)
Perhaps it's only my brain that connects elk/reindeer with ionic rams horns!

Tanya said...

Beautiful cards Brenda, I love the simplicity of the first one, it's gorgeous :) And all the layers on the second are great, I love monochrome :)

I made it home at last haha, seven hours for a 2hr15 minute journey...aaarrrggghhh. Haha!

Lovely elegant cards Brenda. I'm off to set that programme to record in case I forget!!

We've had some lovely weather here. Except today, but then it brightened up about 4 or 5pm. I'm told it's to be nice tomorrow so that would be good for my day off.

Take care,

A fabulous set of cards, great images and colours, the gold one is outstanding and I love the large sentiment.
