More Christmas Card Parties :)

These were the Make & Takes I chose to make for my last party. The skaters was from the last Stampin' Success Magazine & I knew I wanted to make it as soon as I saw it. I'm so totally in love with the Winter Post set. Can't wait to use the "Post Card" stamp on a scrapbook page too!!!
Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White - paper; Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, VersaMark - ink; Winter Post, Occasions Collection (hostess)- stamp sets; Alpine Ribbon Originals, Mini Library clips - accessories;

I saw a card using Lovely As a Tree and chalking the green to make it look like it was glowing but the paper & layout was different. When I first got the Holiday Treasures DSP I didn't think I'd ever use this crazy pointsetta paper but as soon as I looked at the sample I mentioned above, I knew this would be perfect!

Old Olive, Ruby Red, Confetti Cream, Holiday Treasure DSP - paper; Old Olive, Chocolate Chip - ink; Lovely as a Tree - stamp set; Ticket corner punch, 5-petal flower punch, Felt Fusion Too, green rhinestone brad, sponge dauber, Stampin' Pastels, Chocolate Chip marker, Ruby Red marker, pop-up glue dots - accessories;

Lately I've fallen in love with the confetti cream paper. I'm totally into vintage stuff and anything made with confetti cream & chalked, automatically looks vintage! This last card feels kinda quilt-ish to me :) Love the gingham paper too :) The tree was inked mostly in Old Olive but I used the Chocolate Chip marker to color the trunk and after I'd stamped it, I used the fine tip of the marker to add a little more brown to the trunk & branches. I also added random dots to the tree with the Ruby Red marker after all the chalking was done.

These were the projects from one of my last parties. For some reason I was on a reindeer theme. Something about Rudolph's nose I think...
