Christmas class cards

I spent a lovely evening with my ladies on friday making Christmas cards.

These cards were made using the Stampin' Up! 'Contempo Christmas' stamp set. A lovely set containing two images and two sentiments and great value at only £12.95 clear and £15.95 woodmount.

The first card was so simple to make. Basic stamping and matting and layering with Old Olive and Rose Red card and inks and a strip of designer series paper in rose red.

The next card was also very simple and i CASE'd the idea from a card designed by my lovely upline Val. I just changed the colours used.
We used the Stampin' Around jumbo wheel 'Sparkling' with crumb cake ink for the background on Whisper white card. Real Red ink was used for the stamping and we used the ornament punch to make light work of cutting out the ornaments on these cards.
A piece of Real Red grosgrain ribbon completed the card.

My next card was slightly more complex as we had a go at heat embossing!

We used Very Vanilla card and the Stampin' Around jumbo 'So Swirly' wheel to create the background. We inked up the wheel using  a Versamark watermark pad and heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder.
The ornament and sentiment are stamped using Real Red ink. The backgound card is also Real red.
Finally, we added Real Red satin ribbon.

For the last card we used an Old Olive background card. A piece of Cherry Cobler cardstock comes next with a strip of Very Vanilla, rounded with the corner rounder punch.

Next a piece of stripy 'Jolly Holiday' designer paper was punched using the Scallop Trim border punch.

The ornaments stamped with Cherry Cobbler and Real Red ink were applied using dimensionals.

Finally some gold thread and gold glitter add a bit of Christmas sparkle.

We will be meeting again for some more Christmas crafting and friendly chatter again soon.

Thankyou for visiting.
