Contempo Christmas Cards

I recently participated in a Mystery Image Challenge Swap with an online stampers group to which I belong.  The hostess sent everyone a duplicate packet containing a bonanza of supplies including cardstocks, Designer Papers, trims cut with the Big Shot and the Tasteful Trims Die, die cut buttons, rhinestones, punched cardstock and embossed images which were made using the Contempo Christmas set (Idea Book & Catalog p. 45).  What a wonderful assortment to create with!

What a treat to just sit down and create with all the work done for me already!  lol! Here are two of the cards I created:

The only thing I added on this card that didn't come in the packet is the Victorian Lace Ribbon and a Square Rhinestone from the Square Ice collection.  I did emboss the red scallop square with the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder for texture and depth.  The pattern papers are from the Jolly Holly Designer Series Paper.

The second card features Old Olive diecut cardstock buttons of various shapes and sizes over the Cherry Cobbler Designer Paper.  Both the top and bottom trims are cut with the Tasteful Trim die, as was the large polka dot scallop in the first card.  The "Merry Christmas" greeting was heat embossed and then punched with the Large Oval punch; a small white button over a red circle with a knot of 1/8" taffeta ribbon enhances it.  A bow of 1/8" taffeta ribbon finishes the lower trim.

All of these great products can be purchased in my online Stampin' Up! store here.   Don't forget the fabulous product specials Stampin' Up! is currently offering also!  You can access the information on these by clicking on the Holiday Spectacular and the Holiday Bundle pictures in the upper right column of this blog.  What a great opportunity to save money while purchasing wonderful current supplies for your stamping and scrapbooking!

Thanks for visiting!  I'll have the other two cards posted tomorrow!
