October Christmas Card Class

Today I am sharing the 3 Christmas cards we created in yesterday's Christmas Card Class.

Our first card was very simple using one of the new stamp sets available in the Holiday Catalogue,  Wishing You stamp set and, of course, Mosaic Madness. Just added in a little background stamping with Gorgeous Grunge and some Season of Style Washi Tape.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Ink Pads - Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Pistachio Pudding (for background stamping), Stamp Sets - Wishing You, Mosaic Madness, Gorgeous Grunge, Punch - Mosaic, Season of Style Washi Tape, Gemstones

Our second card used the large tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  The tree was stamped in versa mark ink and embossed with Pewter Embossing powder.  The colours of Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate together look stunning (unfortunately my photo doesn't do it justice).  Again used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create an interesting background.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Ink Pads - Versamark, Pool Party, Stamp Sets - Lovely as a Tree, Gorgeous Grunge, More Merry Messages, Embossing Powder - Pewter

Our third card for the day also used the embossing technique but this time after we had stamped the image on to a piece of white card stock we covered the whole of the cardstock with versa mark and used the Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give the whole piece a lovely glittery shiny look.  To create the bauble in the multi colours of red and green we used markers to individually colour each section before stamping.  Another simple design card with the sparkles making it out of the ordinary.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Whisper White, Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Stamp Pads - Cherry Cobblers (just for sentiment), Versamark, Markers - Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Stamp Sets - Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Ornament Keepsakes, Embossing Folder (retired folder from SU), Embossing Powder - Iridescent Ice
