NY Christmas


Last Christmas I received Papertrey Ink's City Scene stamps and dies as a gift, and I've made several cards with it, but I just got the chance to use it to make Christmas cards this year.  It has the cutest stamps and dies to create a NY city taxi cab with a Christmas tree on top, so it was perfect for a card for a coworker who is a New Yorker!

For my sentiment, I used one from PTI's Holiday Lights stamp set, stamping it onto a die cut made with a die from My Creative Time's Just Simply Live.


I used two of the oval dies from MCT's Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to make a little window and then created my scene using lots of Hero Arts inks.  The whole scene was created with stamps and dies from City Scene, except for the snow bank, which I made with MCT's Fun Stitched Edges Dies.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas!

What a fabulous scene. Love all the color. How did you color the buildings without it all blending? I really want to learn some new techniques, but need to be guided in the right direction!

Hi Katie - I love your City Scene cards. How do you keep the buildings so straight and keep them spaced so evenly? Do you use Stamp-a-ma-jig to line them up?
