Christmas Cards II - Look No Ink!!

Hello There Friends

Can you believe it is December on Sunday?  No, me neither!  I get to start my Christmas Album - yeay!  I am looking forward to filling it in.  If you haven't seen it and would like to, take a peek HERE.

I am going to share with you some.....wait for it......Christmas cards with NO INK used on them!  Brave or what?!  I was trying to create my first WOW but my Secret Critic told me that as I had used silver then it didn't count as a WOW card!  

I have used my TH embossing folders, TH doiley die and of course my MB dies.  All the card used is from my White Snippets box and the silver likewise.

I do love the way the sun catches the MB candle die.  I have also rubbed some Schtickles over the embossing, but with the current lack of daylight except in the middle of the day I cannot quite capture the sparkle.
I do love this tartan embossing folder.  I carefully punched an embossed snowflake using my MS die and a snippet of embossed card.  My other favourite MB die in use again.  The ribbon was bought in Prague.  So pretty.
I am taking this over to the Snippets Playground.  Hopefully Miss is well on her way to 100 entries in the 100th week of Miss having the keys. 

See ya later and thanks for calling by.

These are wonderful! They are so serene and elegant looking.
Love that one where you rubbed the bit of stickles on the leaves!

What? NO INK? I too love white on white and did one the other day for a store sample. Though I do itch to put ink somewhere...

Ahem . . . still two BRRRRRRR-illiant winter cards here Sam.

Hope you're having fun in Bath with Fergus.

Two fabulous cards Sam! I often think a touch of silver just makes a WOW card pop anyhow! And of course the candle and the tree dies are in my top 10 here too! Lovely, AND ribbon - sheesh :)

Hope you haven't wrecked Bath today - been watching the news as last I heard you were off with Fergus and his water wings to the baths themselves!!

Hugs, Di xx

Really love these with all that amazing texture in the backgrounds. The doily works beautifully and I love the MB dies - especially that tree - fabulous, and clean fingers too!

You rocked this challenge, girl. I love your textured background and the silver die cuts. A lovely contrast. I don't think i could ever not use ink. Seems like a difficult challenge. Great job, Sam.

Two beautiful cards. I think silver should count as white! Think the candle die is so pretty too.

Bonnie said...

These are both so elegant with the silver against the white embossing!

Well, it may not be a W-O-W card, but it is certainly a WOW card, Sam!! Brilliant!! Hugs, Darnell

I can't believe I missed these! LOVE THEM!! And I have those dies, and embossing folder....hmmmmmm. LOL! (umm...what does WOW stand for, besides World of Warcraft...?) Who made the Tartan folder?
