This Sunday, I had the pleasure of joining a lovely group of ladies for some stamping fun. They call themselves Stamp or Dye. They get together once a month, and I join them as often as I can. This month I provided the projects: wreath cards stamped using the Stamparatus. 

Here’s what they made:

Here’s Emily with her holiday card in Garden Green and Real Red. Instead of stamping each image 8 times, she stamped each one 4 times to create a clean and simple design. She used the Mistletoe Season stamp set.

Linda’s is Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay. Mary Beth’s is Melon Mambo and Old Olive (she said Old Olive is her favorite color.) Linda and Mary Beth used different stamps from the A Big Thank You stamp set.
