 Here are some of the cards I received.

WHO'S GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS?

Stampin' Up! have had some amazing stamp sets over the years, one of my favourites is Night of Bethlehem, it's not current but I will keep using it.

Being a patchwork person as well as a paper crafter, I love samplers, so out came my Night of Bethlehem stamp set and this is what I came up with.






Sadly the lighting isn't too good with this photo but I am so pleased with the sampler and can't wait to hang it at Christmas.

I did have to use a couple of images from other sets, again retired, Wise Men from Afar and the Joy came from Cheers to the Year.

But with samplers, you can use whatever you like, crafting in any case is personal taste.

I kept this simple using only Black, White and Crumb Cake with the odd touch of Daffodil delight,though I did use Gold Foil to back the borders.

I have another one to show you soon, I would love to see your samplers.

The frame size is 12" x 12" if you would like cutting details please email me at sueallensimplycraft@bigpondcom.


If you would like a copy of new Holiday Catalogue, live in Australia and don't already have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I would be happy to send you one. Just email your details to sueallensimplycraft@bigpond.com.
