Crafting with Judy

Yesterday afternoon Judy and I had a pretty busy time crafting.  We made 2 cards each of three different designs.

The first one is a CASE from the current Stampin' Up! Hoiday Mini Catalogue - page 15.  Although we both have Tags til Christmas we used Delightful Decorations for the focal image and used a greeting from the Level 2 Hostess Set Peaceful Season (page 5 of the mini).


Stamps - Delightful Decorations, Peaceful Season
Card Stock - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Other - Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Squares Duo die for the Big Shot, Ornament Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Polka Dots Embossing Folder

The next card was inspired by Heather Summers' post HERE.   I do like Heather's sample, but I decided to simplify the ribbon treatment a little bit and I am very pleased with the result.  Instead of using the Very Vintage wheel to create the backgroud we used the snowflake stamp from Winter Post. 


Stamps - Winter Post, Christmas Greetings
Card Stock - Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Other - Linen Thread, Chocolate Chip Wide Striped Ribbonn (retired), Chocolate Chip button (retired), Scallops Squares Duo die for the Big Shot, Stampin' Dimensionals

For the last card I was inspired by a card posted by Sandi McDonald on Stampin' Connection.  Unfortunately there was no website listed so I cannot direct you to the original.  Our version is pretty close although we did use a different selection of DSP from the Deck the Halls package and changed the stamps used for the ornament and the sentiment. 


Stamp Set - Delightful Decorations, Contempo Christmas, Lovely as a Tree
Card Stock - Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Ink - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler
Other - Ornament Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Pearls
