Since we missed out in November, we're bringing you a double dose of Encore Week this month, with two sets of old favourites to show. Today we have a fabulous creation from Karin using the Sweet Christmas set of digital stamps. She's included a fun colouring panel in the centre of her card, with a matching image decorating the outside frame.

Take a look at these two fun Christmas cards that Jackie put together with one of our old favourite digital stamp sets. Don't you just love the festive backgrounds?! She's layered all the different elements onto double mats to frame the beautiful papers and hand-coloured images, and then finished each card with simple dot embellishments.

Anesha has created a fabulous batch of snowman cards, boxes and bags that are sure to delight all the special people in her life. She has used different characters and sentiments from the set and teamed them with gorgeous snowflake die cuts, patterned papers and punched shapes. What an awesome gift set this would make!

Carla has used the Snowman set to create a wonderful collection of holiday cards filled with Christmas cheer, frosty evenings and cute snow people. She coloured the images on her first card with pencils and added a gorgeous night sky with Distress Inks and a stencil. Check out how beautiful and bright that moon looks!
This cute card was created by printing the little snowman on blue card stock and then adding some white gel pen highlights. Carla completed the look with a little touch of red.
The last two cards in the collection have both been coloured with Distress inks through stencils. Don't you just love the beautiful smooth colour blends?

Sometimes I like to change things up a little, just to see what will happen. Instead of leaving a white border around my coloured image, I opted to add black marker instead. The result is an image that pops right off the white card blank!

Judy has created two fabulous, festive cards just in time for Christmas gift giving. The first features a gorgeous holly background that has been embossed and lightly sanded to help reveal the beautiful pattern. She added a stocking full of happy gingerbread men to sweeten the deal!
Judy's second creation is a gorgeous card in the shape of a bauble, complete with hanger and satin ribbon. She has decorated her project with gold card and a hand-coloured image from the Home for the Holidays set of digital stamps.
