I haven't used this stamp before, so I guess it counts as new - despite the 2009 date on it! I've used it for a number of challenges this week, all of which I love!

Firstly there is the Winter Wonderland challenge - one I was going to miss this time as I'm all but thru making Christmas cards this year, but then I read the theme - NATIVITY - kinda what it's all about, so I thought I'd do it!

Then there was the lovely sketch at Sketch n Stash - how could I not do that, so with my new/old stamp I set to work!

Finally, ABC Christmas is X for Xerox - ie copy an old challenge - so I went with e for embossing from the beginning of the year. (3 different folders used!) I took my inspiration from Jayne's card in that challange, her card was predominately white too with the main image sitting over an embossed panel, use of ribbon & corner detail. I have included a picture of Jaynes lovely card below,

& Papertake - Christmas cracker
Party Time Tuesday - Snow
Ribbon Girl - Christmas
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Anything Christmas + pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Show some stars - on the image & embossed corner
PBSC - Christmas + Red + Embossing - ok so there's a lot more embossing than red, but they are both there! Jx

White on white is always so breathtaking and you have done a marvelous job with these. Gorgeous textures - I especially like the "stars" one with the stitching. Awesome job! So happy you have you joining in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
