Christmas Emporium - Hampton Art/Graphic45 Stamps

Ok, last Hampton Art/Graphic45 stamp reveal! It's no secret how much I love vintage Christmas! These stamps are amazing! The new Graphic45 Christmas Emporium papers were not available yet, so I used papers from the Christmas Past, which was released last year. But, once you see the new line, you will see how they coordinate!

I colored the images with Copics, then sponged some ink for a background. Then I cut a snowflake (Spellbinders die template, see supply list below) and stamped the sentiment into the center. I also sponged some ink onto the snowflake and added some pearl bling.

No vintage card is complete without pins and flowers, right?!

Another thing I love about Graphic45 paper, is that there is usually a black/cream combo in each collection! I love working with just those colors.

Adding kraft to black and cream gives i such a natural feel. I loved this image just stamped in black, without color! And is that sentiment not BEAUTIFUL?!!

I hope you enjoyed this peek! I'll have a peek with the NEW Christmas Emporium papers on Monday! Stay tuned!
