My IO stamps have ARRIVED!!!

So, I've completely fallen in love with Impression Obsession and their Cover-A-Card stamps.  After winning a $25 GC for a blog hop challenge I now am the proud owner of 12 of them.  But I never really ventured into their stamps because I'm a clear stamp girl and don't have room for the wooden blocks.  

With their last release and all of the hype over their Christmas line, I fell in love with 2 stamps.........a snowman and a little tree.  I decided to order those, as well.  When I went to order I got the choice to order them unmounted which really made me happy!!!  I don't have to store them somewhere different and they were cheaper that way!!!

So, I immediately broke out my new Starry Tree stamp and set to getting more Christmas cards done.  When I saw the preview of this one........I instantly thought GINGHAM!!!  I wanted a country Christmas card and I think it turned out adorable.

Please click to enlarge this so you can see the glittery snow and the glittery stars.  They are just what I wanted!  I do wish I could add a button on the ribbon, but these are going to be mailed out and I need them flat.
I'm so happy with the way they turned out that I may make another set of four.

Newest count = 91!!!

I love these cards, that gingham is so nice for a Country Christmas. I love the cute little tree and you did a great job cutting it out. I had to zoom in really close to see if it was a diecut or not. Another great couple of cards done, I bet you are getting close to your goal!

These are really great, Stephanie. I don't think you need to worry about adding buttons etc. The glitter and details on the tree give just enough bling!! I haven't made any cards yet, but I do have a few from last year that I didn't send out. Does that count?!!
