Christmas cards from Card Class/Card Kit

In our card class this past Friday we started making our Christmas cards.  We made 5 cards all using different stamps, but keeping with the same color scheme.  Our colors were Twilight, Crystal Blue, White Daisy, Slate & Whisper. On 3 of the cards I used the Wonderland which is now retired, but fit my colors perfectly.  Also, we used the Cuttlebug to emboss some White Daisy Cardstock.

This first card has a Crystal Blue base, then an embossed snowflake layer that we sponged with Crystal Blue Ink.  Then we added a layer of Wonderland pattern layered with Crystal Blue.  The Snowman is stamped in Twilight on Twilight Cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped on Crystal Blue,using the same color ink.  The strip of Whisper Cardstock is stamped in Slate Ink.  All Stamps used are from the Winter Joy Stamp Set(retired).

With this lovely Peace card, we started with a Crystal Blue base, and layered the Wonderland pattern ontop.  Using the Whisper Cardstock layered with the Crystal Blue Cardstock we then stamped our Dove image and sentiment using the White Daisy Pigment Ink.(Please note when stamping with pigment inks, they take longer to dry)  The stamp set used here is the Blessings of Peace Stamp Set.

This super cute snowman card uses the Flakey Friends Stamp Set.  Here we choose 2 of the 3 snowmen from the set, and lined them up on the stamp so the bases were touching.  We then colored in the scarfs and hats using our new alcohol markers(Sweet Leaf and Sorbet).  To get the nose to look more orange, (as I didn't have an orange marker) I layered the darker of the 2 Sorbet markers to get the orange color.  The first layer is the Crystal Blue, then using the White Daisy embossed in snowflakes, we cut 3 strips to make panels.  Then layered the snowmen and sentiment on top of Whisper Cardstock.

 I think is card is my favorite, it is just so simple, but so polished.  The base is the Crystal Blue Cardstock, and then using my new snowflake swirl folder we embossed the image on White Daisy Cardstock, then using a sponge dauber highlighted the embossed image with Crystal Blue Ink.  Using the Snowflakes Stamp Set stamped the sentiment in Twilight Ink.  Cutting 2 snowflakes from the Art Philosophy Cartridge stamping the bottom image in Slate, and the top in Twilight.  To make the snowflake pop off the card, we adhered 3D foam tape between the card and each snowflake.

This last card started with a slate base, then layered with Wonderland.  The stamps used here are from the I Believe Stamp Set.  The santa and the snowflakes are stamped in Crystal Blue ink on White Daisy Cardstock and layered on Crystal Blue.  The sentiment is stamped in Twilight ink and layered on Twilight Cardstock.  Then it is popped off the card with some 3D foam tape.  I also added some bling to the card with some sparkles.
