More Christmassy Cards

Didn't think I'd be able to resisit for much longer! Finally went ahead and bought some more Elzybells as part of their celebrations. If you've been wanting to get your hands on some of the stamps then now's the time as there's 10% off all orders and special stamp bundles - I went for the angels one, over £23 worth of stamps for £10.80!!! How's that for a bargain? Head on over to the Online Elzybells shop now and take a look.
I've actually been using some of the Eskimo stamps from Elzybells today. I've adapted a quick card I made a while back on here and played with the image and colours. The main difference is the doodle border.

And here's a close up of the 2 new colours (Agean and Lime Promarkers)



And here's a card I made when I was playing with my new stash that I forgot to include in the update before. Here I was practicing colouring with the ink pad and a blender pen. I think it really adds to it and highlights the flower well.


And my final update for today, here are my ATCs for this months swap over on my ATC SWAPPERS blog. The theme this month is Call of the Wild. These weren't my original plans but I had to change it as my printer is out of action (and has been for 3 weeks now and I'm still trying to sort it out, was adding my new CISS and the printer hasn't worked since). Anyway, enough babbling, I ended up using some PP images I'd printed ages ago and some of my SU stash -Chocolate Chip and Old Olive papers and cardstock and my wheel with chocolate chip ink.

The Eskimo cards are great! I treated myself to some more Promarkers today, they are almost as addictive as Elzybells stamps! The ATCs are really cute too. You have been busy!

I love the colours of your christmas cards. How do you match the colour of the promarker to the card you use for matting so well?
