Joanna Sheen's Christmas Flower stamp Sample Cards

Hi Bloggers, It's been a while. I've been super busy with making sample cards and my own Christmas cards. I've also not been able to get onto the computer as much as I would like for other personal reasons.
Anyway, I realised that I didn't show the card samples for the Christmas flower stamps that were shown on TV over a month ago,well it's not Christmas yet so .. here are my 2 from each option:
The Candle option of these stamps has some lovely designs. I used the musical sentiments as tinsel on the tree and for the background - I embossed with white powder and inked with Tim Holtz aged mahogony pad for the background paper. The angel stamped and embossed with white powder looks good on the top of the tree. I used the sentiment from the Music option with a few punched birds (MS punch) each side and on the tree. Talking of the tree, I stamped the Angel over and over in green onto a piece of paper and punched out lots of snowflakes and arranged them into a tree shape. 8" x 8 " card.

Here's the second card using the Candle option:
I have used the main design stamped with versamark and embossed with white powder. I used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour the image using one of my acrylic blocks to mix the colours with water. The fancy top is part of a spellbinders die - Lables 20 to give a nice edge. 6" x 6" card.

The Music option has a beautiful design plus a lovely Poinsettia and sentiment.
Here are my cards.
I stamped the main image twice with versamark and embossed both with white powder, the one for the back I cut to size and inked using Tim Holtz Barn door ink pad. (very messy! he he) then I used the other stamped image to cut out the poinsettia flowers to lay on the top. The backing paper is the single Poinsettia flower stamped over and over using a mask so that they can be overlapped neatly... again I used the Barn door colour inkpad - I think this makes a stunning background paper. I stamped a few extra for the embellishments and added some punched out Poinsettias aswell.
Here's the second card for the Music option..
A pretty Tent fold card with the image again white embossed and coloured using the distress inks. I layered the image onto a vintage doily to add texture and stuck gems along the MS punched bottom edge. The holly paper is from Papermania.

The Star option has the most lovely wooden star with Merry Christmas on it, plus a lovely arrangment in a box and some Christmas bells. Here are my two cards.
First of all I decided where I wanted the line for the bottom of the door and stairs and lightly inked over a straight edge with Antique linen, then I stamped the star and then drew the lines of the door around it. To create the look of the stair banisters I used a deep edge Martha stewart punch and red card but inking the area first before I stuck it on. I used a mixture of H2O's and distress inks to colour the flowers this time. 6" x 6" card.
Here's my second card.
A mixture of embossing folders to create the fireplace on this tent card. Paper from Papermania and holly punched and coloured.

The Wreath option has a lovely Wreath, bauble and sentiment.
Here's my first card. 8" x 8" card
A mixture of large MS border punches to create the gate and the brick embossing folder from Creative Expressions for the little bits of wall on each side. I used torn white card for the snow effect. The wreath is coloured with promarkers. I love the cat from the Ivory Cats CD, cheeky little thing..!
and finally, the second card for this option and last out of the samples...

I've had the white card with flecks in for absolutely ages.. I love how it looks like a frosty window here. I stuck 4 identical cut out squares onto a larger blue square to create the window.
I also stamped onto the blue paper and embossed with white... then added my own foiled sentiment. 6" x 6" card.

Thank you so much for visiting my page today. I will have many more samples to add here as each new set of stamps are launched on Create and Craft TV.

Hugs xx
