Holly, Berries and Pinecones

Hi everyone, I have a couple of cards inspired by Jo Rice today. If you've never been to Jo's blog I highly recommend it. Jo is an amazing artis and has some great videos for you to follow on her YouTube channel.

Both cards are made with Lavinia stamps except for the sentiments which are Tim Holtz.
My favourite is the hexagon, I just love how this one turned out and the cards were pretty quick to make.
The berries and pinecones were stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturn and coloured in red and brown. The holly was stamped in Hero Arts Multi green ink pad and the red berries added later. The image was die cut using a smaller Hexagon and popped up on three additional layers of card stock.



I'm entering this for the following challenges.
Peace on Earth - Anything goes
Merry Little Christmas - Anything goes

WOW! Gorgeous cards Christine. Especially love the hexagon with the popped-up middle panel. The greenery and berries are so gorgeous ... beautifully coloured! And I love the little bunnies on your first card and the gorgeous, magestic deer on your second. Great work, my friend. Off to check out Jo's blog and videos ... thanks for the links. xx

These are both beautiful Christine! I've seen Jo on FB posts and often print out her cards to try and recreate later! Love the hexagon shape on the first and the lovely branches of mixed greenery berries and cones on both! xx

Ohhhh, gorgeous! I've been pinning her videos and they inspired me to buy my first Lavinia stamps. I hope it won't be too much longer before I use them. You've made some beautiful cards here. Wow!

That's a lovely stamp, and you've shown it off beautifully here. The vibrant colours are fabulous, especially against the subtle icy blue of the backgrounds. Thanks so much for your visit and lovely comment over at mine.
