Christmas cards without Christmas stamps - Cartes de Noël non traditionnelles

I have really gone into Christmas mode in my card making and I cannot wait to start decorating the house for one of my favorite times of the year!

While I wait I'll share a couple of cards that I made last weekend, the colors are very traditional but the images I used are not, still works for this time of year, don't you think?

These cards were all made with stamps and inks from Altenew and I am happy to enter them into the November Inspiration Challenge on their blog, here


Since the inspiration came from a beautiful forest photograph taken by Aga, I immediately knew I wanted to use feathers and a rock n roll technique to stamp them.


I am also a big fan of berry images for Christmas so I made a pattern on the second card.


And this mid century inspired one finishes it all up.


Supplies used:
Stamp sets:
Faithful Feather, Halftone Happy, Bride-To-Be, Simple Flowers and a greeting from the Hero Arts October 2018 card kit.
Inks:
Olive, Moss and Hunter Green
Heart Beat, Vineyard Berry and Velvet
Espresso
Jet Black


Which one is your favorite?
