Clarity birdhouse stamps

My entry to the 'build a scene' challenge on the Clarity stamp blog.  The bird house stamps where a present from Santa, and this was my very first play!  I can see that I will be having great fun with these stamps.
The background was created with sponging across the edge of torn paper, then the silhouette birdhouse stamps stamped on the background card.  The coloured foreground was then created on translucent paper with alcohol inks.

Christmas cards 2013

The following are my batch Christmas cards for 2013.  I bought some wrapping paper which was double sided, with gingham one side and red/white Christmas trees on the other.  Having decided it was too nice for wrapping presents, I found the origami tree design in the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, and was inspired!  The following are a selection of the 15 cards I made, each one slightly different!
