Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2014

My lovely bloggy buddy Debby is encouraging us to share our favourite five Christmas cards of the year again. I love doing this...there's wonderful inspiration to be had from browsing everyone's favourite creations! I went back through all of this year's cards...and here's my selection (click any of the photos to go to the original post for full details of products/techniques):

I'm calling this one 'Watery Snowflake Swirl'...I experimented with stamping with water on a very inky background...and love the effect it created:

My second card was also a bit of an experiment...and was probably the quickest card I made all year! Simply a thumbprint with a little doodling to make this reindeer:

The next one is a bit more 'me' with a cute Penny Black image, pretty papers, some distressing and stitching:

And another Penny Black card...this time in a more CAS style...just love the colours on this one...and of course the cute little snowman:

My final card is a really recent one...and again is not my typical style...for a start the only stamped element is the sentiment! I've been slowly accumulating a collection of dies and used lots of them to create this scene:

If you want to join Debby and share your favourite Christmas cards from the year, you can find her post here.

Before I go, I'd just like to wish all of my lovely blog visitors a very Merry Christmas!
