Children From A Yesteryear Christmas (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Sharing cards that appear in this issue of The Stampers’ Sampler
The cards are small in size, approx 3″x4.5″, the size dictated by the wee kraft envelopes.
Some links to the fabulous products I used on the cards:-
Redlead Paperworks stamps – Christmas stamps (She Loves Snowflakes and Winter Wishes stamps were available at the time of drafting this post and the sentiments labels are also available)
Oxford Impressions stamps Season of Giving stamp set (the boy and the two children)is available in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.
That’s Crafty Dinky Snowflake background stencil and Greyboard Snowflakes

The co-ordinating envelope is peeking at the background.onelynnesamplerIt is only the past couple of years that I have felt comfortable in using red for festive creations.  With the stamps I selected (above and below are Redlead), it brings a touch of nostalgia.

The snowflake Dinky Stencil is much loved by me, you just need to take one look at the stencil I own and it is evident how much I love it, it isn’t exactly box fresh! The greyboard snowflake is another favourite.  I used them so often on festive/winter creations last year.twolynnemEach card does have a pocket/envelope even though they do not appear in all the photos. They can be seen in The Stampers’ Sampler as they took the trouble to print them all.fourlynnemThank you so much for your visit to this post, my first for this brand new week.
If you are preparing for the festivities, I hope your plans are going according to plan and it isn’t too stressful a time.

    Lynne, this is such a darling collection of Christmas cards. The stamped images are so nostalgic of long ago Christmases that hold such charm for us. Your touches of red fabrics, ribbons and trims create a festive air. Your little envelopes with scalloped closures are so sweet and make these beautiful cards even more special. A lovely work indeed! And, they deserve to be seen by all. Thank you for sharing with us. Inkybru xxx:

    Lovely cards Lynne, with a very vintage feel. I like the pop of red but agree it can be a little overpowering.

    My dear Lynne, yes, I love them ,too- as everyone else here. You have catched the real feeling of old days Christmas. The beautiful stamps,- and the red accents, in different tones, together with the gorgeous stamped snowflakes and the wooden ones, too- gives me such a cozy and happy feeling, going back to childhood, and the joy from back then.
    Thank you , xxx

    These are such beautiful, earthy, and delightful cards. You’ve truly captured many emotions in your choice of texture and colors. I have always loved the pompom girl stamp from Red Lead. I think I will be purchasing her! Great Work!
