Our Challenge in my stamp group this month was to use something that begins with the letter P and I had already done my poinsettia stamp, so I went with Peace in my sentiments.

These are from some new stamps I picked up on HSN craft day awhile back, they are from Diamond press and they stamp very well.  I tried making an oval wreath with all the stamps , they had 3 different sizes of pinecones and the pine looking stamp, plus this great sentiment.  I just added some holly and stickles to the stamping and I was done.

Diamond Press - Christmas stamps
EK Success - Vellum holly sticker
Stickles - xmas red

On this card I used one of their wreath stamps and added one of their many sentiments you can add to the inside. Cut it out with my die and added a bow.

Spellbinders - Big Scalloped circles die
EK Success - Fibers

The last two were done with a big Peace stamp given to me by a friend, I added some snowflake stamps from the stamp set above for the corners, one embossed in white and the other in silver.

So happy that I actually got 4 cards made this month, since I didn't manage it last month.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by again today!

Gosh, I've never even heard of Diamond Press stamps, but they sure look great on your cards! The first card looks almost like a stencil. Very pretty cards! Also love that magnificent flourished Peace. Good job getting 4 more cards done for Christmas!
