Christmas Cards - With thanks to JOFY!

At the end of November, I went on a brilliant Jo Firth Young weekend, over at my favourite place, The Stamp Attic.  We made a whole bunch of Christmas cards on the Saturday, and a Christmas piccie on the Sunday.

Jo showed us a few different ways to use her stamps (which are GORGEOUS, and really easy to use), and I focussed in on a couple of her samples to make my Christmas cards. 

Never been a one for fussy cutting.  Tho to be fair, now that I have invested in a pair of Lord Timmy's lovely scissors, maybe I'll learn to love it.  Or at least, detest it less.  But, whatever, Jo's Christmas trees are easy to cut out, even for me.  So I made a bunch of my cards in Jo's style, using different papers, and possibly, just a little more stickles!!

I also love Jo's Snowmen, both full and half size!!  Lovely to stamp, and colour in, using (mostly) Distress Inks, with just a little extra doodling.

My other style of card I picked up from the NEC.  The lovely lady from Card-io was making a similar card, and I had forgotten how much I love montage stamping!  So I did a few cards in this style, having bought a couple of the Majestix stamp sets.  And added some stickles...

Hope you like!
