Whimsy Stamps September Release Countdown Day 4

I'm back for day 4 of the September release countdown from Whimsy Stamps.
Today I'm showcasing 2 clear stamp sets and 1 matching die set, that are perfect for your Christmas cards.

The first set is Abstract Christmas which has this lovely abstract Christmas tree made from circles and lots of fab mix and match seasonal sentiments, you'll see that I've used these sentiments on some of my other Christmas cards.
I've made a few cards with this set as it's so versatile and just the thing for making batches of Christmas cards to send out, but you'll have to wait a couple of days to see the others.

For this one I stamped the Christmas tree in Versamark ink on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and embossed with detail white embossing powder.
Then I used my Zig Markers and a water brush to colour in the circles. I used a combination of Turquoise Green, Turquoise Blue, Purple and Pink.

I stamped my chosen words in VersafineOnyx Black ink under the tree and then cut out the whole thing with a stitched rectangle die and popped it up on some craft foam on some turquoise lustre cardstock mounted directly to my base card. I finished off with a few sequins in matching colours.

For my second card I used the Oh What Fun stamp set which is a lovely set with lots of small fun Christmas images. I stamped out Santa with his sleigh a few presents and a row of trees, coloured them with my Zig markers and cut them out with the matching dies. I also used one of the Stitched Border Trio dies to cut out a snow bank from smooth white cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the set onto it. I made a back ground panel, stencilling some clouds with Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire distress inks and then popped all my pieces on with varying thickness of foam tape, arranging the presents so that it looks like they are spilling out from the sleigh.
I mounted the whole thing onto a dark blue card base.
