Cards from Christmas past

I have been doing this for a couple of years now and like I said in my past posts I just love this craft.  So I am posting cards I have done in previous years.  I hope you enjoy them..

P.S.- I will make sure to link to any techniques or stamp sets I have picked up. Enjoy and see you soon..


Ornament card
Stamped this image twice, colored, then added sentiment from Stampin' Up! (since retired). I used scrap paper from other project to create this scalloped border.
Three Kings
Hero Arts stamp stamped wise men twice. Cut one out then sponged the sky scene. Card face was on glossy stock and sponged going one direction which created a shadow effect. 

Simple blues
When I saw this Inkadinkado Mindscape Star stamp I had to have it. Simple gray pearlescent paper. Sentiment is called four the holidays which has since been retired. Blue and white is such a wonderful color combination

Tagging it
Layers of greens and reds with a distressed tag.

Art Deco Noel
This card took a bit of research on the colors used during the Deco period.  Brown cardstock dry embossed with VersaMark ink then heat set with bronze powder. 

Holly Card
Patterned harlequin with hollys. Then I stamped another holly cut the patterned paper to match the holly colored and added a bow.. 

Snowy Glittery Poinsettia
Stamped poinsettia on red paper embossed black. Used stamping glue on the tops of the leaves then added glitter. Dry embossed holly on crisp white card stock. Used striped background paper to add some color.

Elegant Christmas Card:
Offset silk knot and patterned paper give this card some elegance.

Bleached Poinsettia
Stamped and heat embossed poinsettia and sentiment. then used household bleached to 'color' the leaves.  It is always such a surprise to see the color you will get when doing this technique.  The antique lace is a perfect addition to this card. 

In this card I was trying something new. I used leaves from my front yard to to stamp. Well the effect wasn't really what I wanted so I made it into a Christmas card and now I just love the Hello, Doily Stamp by Stampin Up! (It has since retired but I linked to the digital download), embossed background with green pearlescent embossing powder. Then put the 'Dec 25' sticker on a scalloped cardstock and added it to the card. 
  
Jeweled Card
When I finished this card it wasn't my favorite but it grew on me and now I just love it.. Patterned paper, scalloped border with all the bling on the tree puts this card together beautifully.

Well I think that is enough reminising.. Now to look forward to new projects and crafts!! See you then..
