A short vacation from the internet but not from card making!

It is time to start our Christmas Cards!  A group of us will gather at the end of August and September to share card making ideas and techniques.  Here are a few designs.

 The card stock is Shimmery White #101910, the ink is Cherry Cobbler#126966.  I used the Betsy's Blossom stamp set #126006.  And even though it is not a Christmas stamp it works very well.

I did use clear and white embossing powder.

Don't forget the inside of the card, the next most important part...

This next card is from the same template but using Brushed Gold cardstock #102935 and Island Indigo #122923.  The Stamp set is Festive Flurry #131781 and the wonderful new dies to cut them out#132193 (I love dies...).   I also used white embossing powder and my trusty Versa Mark pen to make the lines that I embossed.

And before I forget... the new candy dots from stampinup! in all the ink colors, yeah!  #130931,130934,130933,130932.  I used the scallop oval punch #119856 and the modern label punch #119849 

The final sample for today is another snowflake from the Festive Flurry which is probably my favorite for the moment :)

The cardstock is Shimmery White #101910 and Whisper White #100730.  The ink is Pink Pirouette #126956 and Blushing Bride #131172.  I used the heat and stick powder #100625 and stampin glitter #102023 to give the snowflake a glittery affect. Topped it with a pearl and those handy candy dots.  Turned out beautiful.

Enjoy and I will be back again with more samples for your class in August and September.

Happy Crafting!  Leslie
