Christmas Card Workshop

Hi there readers. A couple of weeks ago, I had done a workshop for a lady I met from a previous workshop. She wanted a Christmas card theme, so I went with our Ski slope DSP and Snow Swirled stamp set and it really has been the most used stamp set to date.
We made 4 cards in total and this is the first one.

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled and Warm Words
Ink: Old Olive
Paper: Real Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Ski Slope
Other:Dazzling Diamonds,Baja Breeze Ribbon, Scalloped Edge Punch,1/2"Circle Punch, Oval punch and Scalloped Oval Punch.
Used dauber with Old Olive ink around tree and Be Merry.

Then for our second card I wanted to try to use a stamp set that wasn't for Christmas and could be disguised for that theme.The stamp set we used is called Pocket Silhouette and we placed glitter over the leaves to make it that bit special.

Stamp Set:Pocket Silhouette and Snow Swirled
Ink: Real Red,Choc Chip and Baja Breeze
Paper:Ski Slope DSP, Real Red,Baja Breeze & Whisper White
Other:Choc Chip Taffata Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Scalloped Circle Punch.
I had place Whisper White cardstock and stamped the same stamp image inside
but this time in Baja Breeze.

Now for the third card.
This time I went for Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip which is a personal favorite of mine for this Christmas.

You'll notice that there is a running pattern with all these cards and that is I managed to put ribbon on every single one. Just a fluke, wasn't pre-thought.
Stamp Sets:Snow Swirled & Short & Sweet
Ink:Choc Chip an Versa Mark using the snow flake stamp.
Paper:Baja Breeze,Choc Chip, Whisper White and Ski Slope DSP
Other: Striped Grosgrain Ribbon

And for the last card I went for mainly the blue and used the co odinating DSP which look
like Winter to me.

Stamp Sets: Snow Swirled & Short & Sweet
Ink: Choc Chip and Baja Breeze
Paper: Baja Breeze,Choc Chip,Whisper White cardstock and Ski Slope DSP.
Other:Choc Chip Taffata Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds and Circle Punches (not SU).
I told you I like this colour combination.
I hope you enjoyed looking through what we made and a big thank you to Kate for hosting the workshop all the way out in Glenmore Park and hope to see you next year.
