Christmas Batch

I've now finished the bulk of my Christmas cards - 70 in this batch. Most are in the mail. Just as well as I must be close to missing the last posting date!
....and a close up -

Made with the Festival of Trees stamp set from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and the luscious Lost Lagoon cardstock, ribbon and ink - don't you just love the way that Stampin' Up products co-ordinate so perfectly!
The 'snow' is a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge and background is finished with the stars embossing folder. A touch of bling on the centre tree which is silver glimmer card.
The most tedious job was writing and addressing them all!
Like the card? Here are the products below - all available from my online store. Use the right/left arrows under the picture to navigate.

Winter Stamp Camp 2014

                               Pretty busy week and weekend!
Saturday was Winter Stamp Camp. We usually make 15 different cards but, on this occasion, we made 3 each of 5 designs. I planned it this way so that the pressure 
was off a little. However, the ladies had their heads down for most of the day but they got them all stamped out. All stamp sets are from the seasonal Autumn/Winter catalogue, we also used some of this years In Colours.

The first card uses the Festival of trees stamp set. Pool party base card and tag.

Quite modern and contemporary in style. I CASED this from Lesley Gillett -

This next card is made with the Holiday Home stamp set and Homemade Holiday framelits. The matching set comprises both stamps and framelit dies.

You can't see the house stamps on here as I just wanted the silhouettes of the houses. The cute Father Christmas and reindeer are from the same set.

This next card I love simply because is in the Lost Lagoon colour! 

It's not so clear from the photo but the vellum panel is edged with dazzling diamonds and has a soft sparkle. I do love this stamp set too - Ornamental Pine. The snow effect is a stamp from Gorgeous grunge which has been embossed in white.

These last two cards use the Bright and Beautiful stamp set, a set of co-ordinating stars which fit our star framelits pefectly!
Both cards are in Blackberry Bliss, another popular colour this year. Good old SU - always on trend! The blackberry is teamed with gold. These cards are CASED from Cary Buckham - 

I do hope you've enjoyed visiting with me today. Stop by again soon, I have more to share with you!
