Christmas Cards....

I made some samples of Christmas cards for my spin instructor to choose from. I also made my Halloween cards, but I will share those in another post...I haven't taken pictures of them yet so I will probably do that tomorrow.I CASED this card layout from a lady that used to live on base. We had a swap and she used the Sketch It stamp set from last year's catalog. I had some extra Holiday Thyme DS paper from one of the mini catalogs from last year.I CASED this card from the 2006-2007 idea book and catalog. I liked the colors that it used and it was fairly simple. Mine, although doesn't look quite as good as the one in the catalog. But I think once I get the hang of tearing a rounded corner, it will look better. You can't really see it, but I used some glitter on the snowflakes to make them look a little more real.This one is my favorite! I just got this stamp set the other day in the mail. I love my Roses in Winter, but I figured I needed to get a current flower stamp set out of the new catalog so I can demo with it. I CASED the layout and colors from Jan at Stamps, Paper, Scissors. I love reading her blog and I loved the way she used this set and the color combo. I know it isn't very Christmas like, but I thought I would use a variety and give options.
I used the Like it a Latte stamp set for this card. When my puffy paint (liquid applique) comes in, I am going to add it to the whipped cream and make it pop up. The greeting says, "sending warm thoughts your way."
Finally, I made this using the new Wintergreen paper that I absolutely LOVE! This one I think is more traditional as far as Christmas is concerned (aside from not having any red). I hope my instructor likes what I made and I will let you all know what he chose. Hope you all have a great weekend and happy stamping!
