Christmas Inspiration Roundup

Hey there, creative stampers! Christmas is only 3 days away, but if you're still trying to get a few more Christmas cards done, we've got inspiration projects for you from the STAMPlorations girls!


Nonni has a knack for combining patterned paper, doily, twine, and embellishments. Her card below is simply pretty!

Deepti went on a card-making spree one day last week. Check out the 5 (five!) gorgeous cards she whipped up!



Shirley created this elegant and dramatic holiday card featuring her deliciously doodled rosebuds...

...and then she made this ultra-chic card where CityGirl goes hunting for a Christmas tree!

Shery (me) had a little fun with a brushstroke stamp and created this funky card...

...and was still in the mood for spattering when she made this simple one layer card.

Inspired? Have cards (holiday-themed or not) to share? Why not link them up in our challenges? We've got prizes up for grabs!
