Minimal Stamping....if any

In spite of the hundreds of stamps that I own, I love making a card that gets away from stamps and ink.   After discovering Jill Foster's "Inspired By" blog in July, I followed her tutorial for making a set of cards out of Penny Black stickers. -- HERE    This month, Jill played with the PB Stickeroos again for "Christmas at Dusk" cards.  Non-traditional colors but traditional images, and I love them!    (I used one stamp: "Peace")

Here are my versions of 5 of the cards; I added some gold cord, gold Stickles, and pearls to "bling" the cards up a little.   I intend to make a set of 10-12 to use this year.

Hello Evelyn
I also follow this Blog, and I was impressed with these cards too.
You have made a gorgeous collection that anyone would love to receive as a gift. I look at therm and think "which is my favourite?"but I cannot pick just one as I like all 5!
Hope you are improving.
Smiles:)

These are awesome. I love Jill's blog too. I've got a set of Penny Black Christmas stickers (Different from these) so maybe I should dig them out and work on some cards with them.
