New Christmas Stamps!

Hello, my friends! I know I said yesterday I would be here today with our next featured artist, but unfortunately I have been fighting a migraine for the last couple of days and it just won't go away.  Never fear, though, because I just so happened to have some cards already made that I can share this week!  These cards were created for the new Penny Black Christmas catalog using some of my newest and  FAVORITE stamps.  (You can see the entire catalog HERE.) Today's card features this new background stamp, Poinsettia Script:
And I love how it works perfectly with this brushstroke stamp, Winter Glow:
Both of these stamps are available for preorder from Mementos HERE and HERE.  Or both of these are part of the Mementos Bundle of Savings deal HERE.  
And now here's the card:
And if you're starting to get in the mood for Christmas, make sure you check out THIS info about my Holly Jolly Stampin' Party DVD. I'll be using the stamps from the Christmas bundle (HERE) in creating the cards for the DVD and on the Mementos blog, making it easy for you to play along from home. :)

Oh, and we have a new video up on the Memento's blog- lots of new techniques. Check it out HERE.

Thanks so much for popping by! See you tomorrow with another Christmas creation!

Oh, Jill, so sorry to hear about your migraine....I woke up this morning with a whopper of a headache, but thank goodness coffee usually does the trick for me and it's lessening already.

I know how migraines can get in the way of life! have you talked to your doctor about Imitrex? it took me years before I finally broke down and asked doctor about this medication and i'm glad i did. i have gone from a migraine lasting up to three days to lasting half to one day. stamping sue

I sure hope your migraine goes away soon, Jill! Love this gorgeous Christmas card!

Jill said...

I'll be back tomorrow with another Christmas card! :) Thanks for visiting.

Wonderful card, Jill. I have both migraines and cluster headaches (the next step up. You might ask about both topomax and imitrix. My heart goes out to you. There is also a type of migraine that causes fuzzy thinking and no pain. We get that and don't even know that's what it is. We just think it's us. Know you know it might not be you, losing it ;- ) Glad I learned that, ha ha. Hope you have relief soon.

I am so sorry to hear about your migraine - hope it goes away and stays away quickly! The beautiful card on the PB & J tutorial yesterday and the card you posted today on your blog are just stunning! I am totally in love and never thought I'd be begging to do Christmas cards in August of all things. I can't tell you what an amazing artist you are.

This is stunning. Love how the background is stamped with the same flower. Really like the design and deep red/black tips to the flower and the pierced holes really give this a distress feel. Such amazing work.
