Getting ready for Christmas!!!

Here are photos from the Christmas card class in October!

We created cards in a variety of styles & colors. I don't know about you, but I like to send a variety of cards. Here are details on each...
This card was a favorite! We used the "Dasher" stamp from page 208, the $10 & under page. The sentiment is from All Holidays. The color combo is: Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, & Whisper White (using 2 of the new In Colors). Designer paper is from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Christmas Cocoa Specialty (pg. 21). Punches: Snowflake & Wide Oval Punch. Ink is Soft Suede. Ribbon: Soft Suede Polka-dot Grosgrain. We added a little glitter with 2 way glue pen & Dazzling Diamonds.

This is one of the cards we made at Convention, & I just love the simplicity of it. The card uses Tree Trimmings & Sweet Season (pages 28 & 29). Cardstock: Kraft & Whisper White. Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, & Glorious Green. Ribbon: Wide Real Red Grosgrain. Additonal supplies used: Stamp-a-ma-jig.

As soon as I saw the Wandering Words stamp set (pg. 16 of the Holiday Mini catalog) I knew I had to have it! You brings back great childhood memories for me. My mother had a ceremic santa sled, with individual reindeers. It was one of my favorite Christmas decorations in our house. And, we had a LOT of them. My mother had Christmas decorations on every flat surface of our house! Christmas was always so special!
Anyway... we stamped the sleigh with Chocolate Chip ink, then made a mask by punching out a 1" circle. We used the mask with Crushed Curry ink to make the moon! Inked up edges of the tag with Chocolate Chip & sponge dauber. Used the tag corner punch & 3/4" circle punch. Also used the Crop-a-dile to punch & set the Jumbo Eyelet (pg. 19). the background is stamped with the Level 2 Hostess set, Christmas Punch, and is stamped with Shimmer paint from the Holiday Mini pg. 27! This stuff is AWSOME!!! Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip, & Whisper White.

This card was inspired by a swap card I received at Convention from Cindy Goehring. We used the AWSOME Movers & Shapers Sizzix Big Shot die cut. The windows are inter-changable with different shapes that coordinate with exclusive Stampin' Up! punches. We used the Curvy Label die cut & punch on this one! Stamp is from Christmas Punch (Lev. 2 Hostess) inked with Old Olive & Real Red markers. background is stamped with the snowflake from Snow Swirled, stamped in VersaMark. Cardstock: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, & Merry Moments Designer paper.

So simple! Snow Swirled stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with Whisper White. Cardstock is Basic Black & Certainly Celery. Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon!
