Samples from a workshop

I thought I would share a couple of cards which were made during workshops in October. The hostesses were hoping to get a head start on Christmas cards and with my faithful Season of Joy stamp set I was ready to help out!

As I've said before, this is a really useful set to have if you are making your own cards, because there are enough stamps in there to get quite a few completely different looks without using the same images over and over again.

Firstly is this little card ... I wanted to use colours which were a little left of centre from the traditional red and green, and thought that pink and olive (with vanilla) fit the bill nicely.

I teamed Season of Joy with the So Swirly wheel because they work together so well.

Supplies used:

Stamp sets: Season of Joy
Ink: Old Olive

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate, Very Vanilla

1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, So Swirly Stampin' Around Jumbo Wheel, Jumbo Stampin ' Around Handle, Pretty in Pink 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

The other card we made is the basis for those 80 cards I have to make for work (which apparently are increasing to 100 ... *sigh* ...). Of course, the mass-produced one is a bit less fiddly in terms of cutting out, but still effective - trust me. You'll see what I mean when I finish them.

Here the flower (I guess it's supposed to be a poinsettia?) has been trimmed and layered onto the green circle then the red scallop. It's a little time consuming but worth the effort when you see the finished card.

I used Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi here as the traditional Christmas red and green with a twist - they look gorgeous together.
