Christmas cards with Joanne Wardle

This week, Joanne has been making some stunning clean and simple cards with Paperartsy stamps. I don't have the same ones Joanne used but quite by chance the Jo Firth-Young mini JM03 arrived on my door mat yesterday...

Here are my versions based on Joanne's bauble cards

Loved the white shading on the Kraft cardstock...



 or should stars be yellow?! (sorry it's a bit blurry!)
 and the bauble version of Joanne's

and I also did this one, left it mostly white apart from some edging with Evergreen Bough distress ink (had forgotten how much I love this colour!)

I painted the bauble with a couple of layers of Fresco Gloss Glaze, (that also happened to arrive yesterday...) though it doesn't show up in the photo...

Thanks Joanne for some great ideas and another 4 cards ready for me, yay!!  Check out the other fab entries to the Paperartsy Challenge here

Really lovely and isn't that Evergreen Bough Distress gorgeous? I wanted to have a play with white pencils and so on over the weekend, but I don't know how I'm going to fit it in. It's been lovely looking at everyone else's, though - they're really effective! Julie Ann xx

They are gorgeous. I love the yellow star & the little touch of Evergreen Bough on the white is fab.

They're fab, Helen - and I completely agree about the white on kraft, they're my favourites... especially the highlighting on the bauble - so effective. Love the frosty turquoise version too - can imagine the gloss on the bauble looks great.

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
