12 Cards of Christmas - Card 7

Lots of people told me that this was their favourite Stamp-a-Stack card that we made. It surprised me, because I've never thought that I do "vintage" very well. I "borrowed" this colour combo from the US Holiday Mini. The Welcome Christmas Stamp set just cries out for vintage colours. Lots of sponging - I sponged every layer of cardstock in the same colour ink, and I sponged the Very Vanilla Top Notes in Crumb Cake ink. Crumb Cake is the best colour to sponge in if you want that 'aged' look. I also wheeled some backgrounds using the Music Notes wheel and the Very Vintage wheel. The final "vintage" touch was some stick-on pearls.


  1. Wow, I think you have done "vintage" very well. Love this colour combo and all of the cards are just gorgeous.

  2. I love all your creations Marelle, but something I especially admire is how you can create such different and interesting cards for your stamp-a-stacks using the same sized/coloured layers on each card! So clever. I am really enjoying your 12 Cards of Christmas!

  3. ohhhh - SOOO pretty Marelle! I love these too and they could easily become a favorite of mine too!!! Such an awesome use of that stamp set too - I'm so stumped as to how to use it well and here is an incredible set of cards to show me! Fantastic - love love love them! xxx
