How About Some Christmas Cards?

 Supplies: Stamps: Whipper Snapper  Paper: crumb cake, Papercut whip cream, Basic Grey patterned paper  Ink: Memento tuxedo black, crumb cake for distressing  Accessories: Offray red ribbon, SU snowflake long sizzlit die, circle nestabilities, gems, foam distress tool
I'm having too much fun with this bird stamp, he is just too cute. 
 Supplies: Stamps: Bells and Boughs  Paper: crumb cake Ink: Memento rich cocoa  Accessories: copic markers, Stickles, corner rounder, cherry cobbler ribbon
I have always liked the look of images colored with copics on kraft paper.  I had to try it. 
 Supplies: Stamps: Christmas Punch Paper: crumb cake, riding hood red  Ink: Versamark, cherry cobbler, early espresso  Accessories: riding hood red striped ribbon, brown embossing powder by Zing, extra wide oval punch, starburst embossing folder, Sizzix reindeer embossing folder, deckle edge rectangle nestabilities, dimensionals, red nail head

The fun part of challenges for me is it gets me to step out of my comfort zone.  I had seen this tutorial on Splitcoast: Double embossed enamel and always wanted to try it.  It worked out great for this challenge.
Supplies: Stamps: Winter Post Paper: Papercut sno cone and whip cream, SU early espresso, cherry cobbler Ink: crumb cake, early espresso  Accessories: northern flurry embossing folder, sponge for distressing, extra wide oval punch, designer frame embossing folder, classic oval nestabilities, twill ribbon, dimensionals
I saw this color combo in someone's gallery and loved it!  I had to try it out!
Supplies: Stamps: Gina K Blessed is the Season Paper: kraft, early espresso, Paper cut whip cream  Ink: Memento rich cocoa, Memento Markers  Accessories: brown twine
I made a card using this technique last year, and thought it was so fun I'd try it again. 

Supplies: Stamps: Technique Tuesday Paper: GKD white Ink: Versamark Accessories: Sizzix embossing folder, gem, silver embossing powder
This card was really hard to capture in a picture.  As much as I enjoy making white on white cards, I will have to practice.  I guess I should try putting a darker piece of paper behind it.  I'll try that next time.  Otherwise, this was a super quick CAS card.
I hope you have enjoyed some early Christmas Cheer.  I think I will have to choose one I can mass produce.
Thanks for stopping by!
