I love Card-io stamps

I'm sure I've mentioned before that Card-io Majestix were the first stamps I came across online although they were not the first ones I bought. (Inkylicious- still love them too). They are so small and mix and match so well, it's hard to go wrong with them. I have a few sets now but always want more.
I made this card very quickly. It takes me back to the reason I started stamping which was all about foliage, flowers and inking. I sometimes get carried  away with challenges and make thing which are not really me. On the other hand it is good to try out ideas and challenge yourself to try new ideas.
I'm pleased with this one. I added black stickles in the centres of the flowers.
I'm enjoying making Christmas cards without any of the pressure of Christmas going on in the background. I am completely detached from the drama and stress and just enjoying the creative process. So even though I started late, compared to many of you, I have a good stash already and we are just into October. 
I made this for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown October sketch.

What I still haven't learnt - patience. Add Your Stickles Last and Walk Away Until Dry - Properly Dry!
Stamps : Card-io Majestix and one leaf from Kanban.

  2. Wow, Alison, you've stamped those wreaths wonderfully, what a beautiful card! Personally, I can't get on with those type of stamps but I always love seeing creations made by stampers who have mastered them! I'm a recent Inkylicious stamp user - love them and they are less fiddly to stamp LOL!
