christmas card club - stars

Hello all! Well a fortnight has already passed since out last christmas card club so today I am back with the second post of the year .... our theme this time is 'stars'....I love this theme and chose it myself for CVC in November - but I still had plenty of dies and stamps I could use - so I made 4 cards this time....


This one is distress inks and lavinia stamps - I love hares and enjoyed receiving a few hare christmas cards last year so I think hares may feature quite a lot this time around! This star die is from TH.


This one involves a clarity stamp and stencil and I coloured it using distress inks. The backing layer is from the clarity stencil packaging.


The stamp here is from indigoblu and I stamped it in lilac archival ink. The die is from Crafters companion. I like this a lot and hope to use it again soon.


This final one uses some old papers from LOTV and another die from crafters companion.

I really enjoyed this one - the four cards only took about 90 minutes in total too! 

Big hugs!

  12. Wow! What a beautiful assortment you have for us today.
    I am enjoying all the different looks. The first card looks great. I really like that TH die and the hares are really pretty.

    The second card looks wonderful with the matching stars as the "frame around the santa image.

    Third is I think my fave. I amloving this beautiful star die!

    The forth is of course lovely!

  13. Wow! It's amazing that you've shared 4 cards, and each one such a unique design. Loved the non-traditional design of #1 with the cute rabbits, which I would never think to use on a Christmas card. They look delightful against the fab background with the scribbly stars. Each was so festive and colorful, with loads of the theme stars. Especially liked #4, with the intricate cut-out design and the tan & blue color scheme. So unexpected and so pretty & classy. TFS & Hugs

  14. My cards didn't take that long to make either. It was the faffing around trying to get a decent shot of them that took all day!! So frustrating too. These are all fab cards depicting the North Star. All so different. Love them. Hugs to you and the girls. Mrs A.

  17. A super quartet of cards Rachel, especially like the dies you've used. Funny how sometimes you can be so productive and other times you can spend several hours and achieve nothing! Carol x
