Now, for the Release!
First up…Christmas Morn

  • Stamp set includes 7 images and 9 Sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The Christmas tree image measures approximately 3 1/4" x 2 1/4" 
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set price is $15
Whether your style is Clean and Simple, Vintage, elegant or cutesy, you'll love mixing and matching the images and sentiments in this stamp set to create perfect Christmas cards for your family and friends!

This card was super easy to make, I stamped the images on a piece of white cardstock, then I fussy cut all of them. I added some fine black lines to the presents, few stitches here and there and the card was done ;) 


Next is Jesus is Born

  • Stamp set includes 15 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 4"
  • The "Joy to the World" sentiment measures approximately 1 1/4" x 1 3/8" 
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Stamp set price is $15
These 15 sentiments are perfect for proclaiming Jesus, the real reason for the season!

And Finally
Christmas Innies

  • Stamp set includes 6 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 4"
  • The longest sentiment measures approximately 3 1/4" x 1 1/4" 
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland

Do you have trouble finding just the right message for the inside of your cards?  This stamp set, like our other Innies stamp sets, will help you with the perfect sentiment for the inside of your Christmas cards this year!   AND, they are wonderful for the outside as well!

I used the sentiment for the outside of my card. I stamped it on Vellum cardstock, then die-cut the piece using a snowflake die. Then, I added it to a big snowflake piece.
