The Second Day of Christmas...

This has to be the most versatile Christmas set ever. It's called 'Crazy for Christmas' and has rows of little Christmas trees (shown here), presents, ornaments and a cute little message. The presents are great because you can use them all year, and if you turn the ornament stamp upside down, you have a row of balloons! Also, you can ink these trees using your markers, and leave off the tree trunks and you have a row of party hats! How clever is that? I just love a Christmas set that doesn't have to be sitting in a drawer for the rest of the year.
This is another simple card that I made 200 of for the Haemophilia Foundation. Colours are Not Quite Navy, Garden Green and Kraft. I've stamped in black Stazon on the Kraft piece, and watercoloured using Blender Pens and Inkpad lids. Then I highlighted areas using my White Gel Pen. I love the effect of watercolouring on Kraft cardstock. I encourage you to try it if you've never done it before! The little sentiment stamped down the bottom, and a piece of Silver Organdy ribbon tied in a knot finishes it off.


  1. Love the colours & the effect of the trees coloured on the kraft card. Great job Marelle.

  2. just a turtle dove kind of treat!!!!!

  3. This is wonderful!! I wish we had that set! Beautiful job, Marelle!
