Christmas Cardinals & a Halloween Freebie

I had so much fun playing with the Natures Christmas digistamp set From Lindsay’s stamp stuff last week that I decided to use it again this week and make cards with the cardinal stamps included in the kit:

I also used the holly corners from the kit to decorate the plain edges of my cream cardstock. I love this project because I got to use up some scraps, the pattern paper was leftover from last Thursdays card and the little metal word charms (Makingmenories) were left over from my 2004 Christmas cards (I’m telling you, I must have bought 100 of those charms on clearance at Joanns that year;) I love to use stuff up!

These cards qualify for the following challenges: 2 Sisters (animal fun), All Sorts & City Crafter (holiday),  Cowgirls Sunday Challenge & Polycraft & SSDD (anything goes), Anything Challenge (Christmas), Creative Card Crew (Flowers),  Digital Tuesday (Ribbons, buttons), Fab & Funky & Karbers Challenges(use a Digi), fuzzy Wuzzy (more than one image-the card with the holly corners), Gingersnap (Punches), Lothian Crafts, Sew MAny Challenges (Christmas), Marks Fines Paper & Sundays with Chrissy (buttons & bows), Stamp Insanity (Heavy Metal-Metal word charms and metal buttons on cards) and Christmas Blog Challenge (Christmas card for a guy).


The felt flowers were from a Martha Stewart craft kit.


Here is a peek at the Natures Christmas set, it is never to early to get started on Christmas projects!

Here are two new sets in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff Shop this week: Cupcake Carrier Template and Winterland clip art.
