Are you sitting down for this?

I was soo excited when I saw these new Juniper & Jupiter stamps by Starvingartistamps. I had ideas for all of them before I even ordered the stamps.  When the call came down that we needed some cards ASAP, these just flew out of my inky hands!

And maybe, these were so quick b/c I used some awesome Paper Temptress papers for all of them! I just love the shimmer at Christmastime!

And yes, Mom, I DO need to make myself extra copies of these winter cards for myself!  The upclose shot is a detail of the papers. I love stamping my images on Paper Temptress' watercolor paper when I know that I am going to cut them out. I love watercoloring. And this stiff paper really holds up. 

Getting started for next fall...b/c you can never be too early for celebrations. This Paper Temptress paper is two sided...black and white. It's great for card making when you want a black base but a white inside for your message.  I sponged all the edges to soften the designer paper.

I'm fairly certain these elves are my favorite.  Not just b/c it's nearly Christmas. But we just love blaiming something on a fairy or elf around here. haha. And, we do have a Christmas elf that stays with us from
Dec. 1-Dec.24th.  What better perch than a gingerbread house!

Order these new StarvingArtistamps today and you'll have your Christmas/Winter cards done in no time!
