Work shop christmas cards

These are what I've made at Craft Inspirations workshops, with Shirley as ever showing us all what to do.

Image is from Stampendous 'Holy Night' and was heat embossed with clear embossing powder after being stamped with Adirondak 'Pitch Black' ink. Unfortunately I don't know what paper was used.  Circles cut with nesties, while the green card was edged with EK Success 'Scalloped Scallop' border punch.

This is ideal for kids to send to their friends.  Images are from Pink Gem Designs, and sold individually, 'Nativity Donkey' 'Nativity Milly' and 'Nativity Max'.  They were painted with Cosmic Shimmers, except for Max's robe, which had been paper pieced. Again I don't know what paper had been used. Star and circles were cut with nesties, sentiment is a holograpic peel off.

I enjoyed making this one, a good old traditional card.  The flowers are Christmas Roses, and even though we coloured them in the wrong colour, they still look good! They're from the U-Mount unmounted stamp range and contains 7 stamps. Coloured with distress inks.

For the first time since I've been going to the workshops, I used decoupage.  The image is by Flowersoft 'Festive Teddies'.  Polar White flowersoft was used as snow while 'Ice Crystals' cuttlebug embossing folder was used for the left hand side panel.  Sentiment from craftwork cards.

'Winter Mimi' from Pink Gem Designs. Paper from Cosmo Cricket 'Silly Chilly' Mimi painted in Cosmic Shimmers, but dress was paper pieced.  Polar white flowersoft used on ear muffs, dress and pom poms. Nesties used for circles, EK Success 'Alpine' border punch used on the pink & red card.  Nesties die for the snowflakes.  Sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Images from Penny Black T for Transparent '....In A Pear Tree' stamped with Adirondak 'Pitch Black' ink, then embossed with clear powder.  Circles cut with nesties.  Again I don't know what paper was used.  Memo to self: ask what paper is being used at workshops. Tear drop shaped peel offs were stuck on the tree as pears and on the tails of the partridges.

Partridges same as above, painted with Cosmic Shimmers.  Lettering done on cricut using Base Camp 2.5 inches on shadow. Branches were made with a Pine branch punch, may have been a McGill punch.
