Default Tempt Me With Your Christmas Stamps.

Ok, I desperately need some new Christmas stamps so I can start my Christmas card making. I know I'm late at starting...lol...
What stamps have you bought, loved and would recommend.
Pictures would also be great if you can.
Thanks so much!
Love Angie..xx..

I just bought the cheap $2 Imaginisce ones, as I can't be bothered paying a lot of money on stamps that I can only use once a year.

There are some great samples out there in the gallery where someone took a non-Christmas stamp and used it in a creative way! I've seen wreaths made with flowers, trees used with glitter and/or embossing...

Anything from Papertrey Ink - http://www.papertreyink.com/
Joan linked to some of the new holiday sets released this year, but make sure to check out last years also. Great thing about Papertrey Ink is they are so versatile. I love their stuff.

Thank you all so much for your replies.
There really is some beautiful stamps out there. I just love the Alpine Frost, Silent Night and Got Snow stamps.
You give me some great ideas to about using an ordinary flower or leave stamp and making a wreath (I thought this was a fantastic idea).
I do have some Imaginisce stamps so will look through them again and see what I can use.
Thanks so much for all your imput!
Love Angie..xx P. S. Loved reading through your blogs girlies.

I just recently purchased two of Martha's sets at M's...$6.40, I think with a coupon. I just "googled" for pictures of the ones I bought and this is what came up:

http://cgi.ebay.com/MARTHA-STEWART-C...QQcmdZViewItem

http://cgi.ebay.com/GINGERBREAD-Chri...QQcmdZViewItem

If you want to see a sample of the card made with the "tree" stamp check *here* - (scroll down a ways)...it is gorgeous!

Hi Angie,

I live in the U.K. as well. I have quite a few Christmas stamps and if it is any help, I could send you some stamped images to get you started?
Where do you live?

I love the Martha Stewart stamps... I wonder if we'll ever get them in the shops here in the UK?

I'm using SU's a Wish for Peace and Snow Swirled. I also used the sentiments from PTI's Silent Night.

Aww, that's very sweet of you! Just out of interest, how much are these sets? For example, the gingerbread man set - is there a better picture somewhere than the link to the ebay page? I tried looking on marthastewartcrafts.com but I can't seem to locate the clear stamp set.

Thanks,

I'm not sure what style of imagery you gravitate towards, but, if you like simple, whimsical and fun:

This one is one of my favorites, and I just made an easy, contemporary style card with it last night!

Holiday Tree Dash

Here's a "Christmas in the city" style:

Snow City

These are more vintagey in style:

Wishing you . . .
