Here are a couple of cards I made using an emboss and stamp technique where only the embossed areas receive any ink.  In both instances the cardstock was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Then the embossed or raised areas were stamped.  (Read more about it here.)

On this first card, as in the past, I used the mirror image stamp to apply the ink by running it over and across the embossed areas.

On this second card, however, I used a Paisley Backgrounder stamp.  I first stamped the background image and then applied the remaining ink the same as with the mirror image stamp by running it over the embossed areas.  I just love this effect!

We had a wonderful Christmas at our home.  A last minute decision to have my son, Gary and his family, fly in for a week meant that Santa would be paying a visit again this year.  It was so fun.

We made a gingerbread house and baked cookies.
