Christmas Samples As Promised

Well, here they are. The sample cards for my Christmas workshop. I am just showing them small so you can get an idea. This workshop I am doing as a fundraiser for our school's PTO and also for our church youth group the following day. It will be a pre-order/pre-pay set up where the participants choose one design and then come make 20 (or more) cards.
Gold Dove Kit
This one uses the SU set To You and Yours. I used riding hood red, night of navy, very vanilla and old olive. The dove is embossed in gold.
These cards (shown on a navy background) use the SU set Snow Burst in shades of purple or shades of blue. The greeting is from To You and Yours. And the large snowflake on the right is done with heat and stick powder to hold on the gorgeous cosmo glitter from SU.
Whimsical Tree
The tree is done with the faux metal technique (see SU website) and uses the tree from Season of Joy. The swirl is from the same set and stamped in silver on both the garden green and the night of navy. The greeting from the hostess set Punches Three is stamped in silver on real red and night of navy and cut out with the scallop square punch.
Our House
This card has a Sanded background stamped in versa-mark on craft. Old olive DSP from SU makes up the ribbon. The medallion will actually be a scalloped red riding hood oval but I haven't had time to rip it off and make the scalloped one now that my punch came! Also, there will be dazzling diamonds on the roof to make it sparkle.
So that's what I've been working on. Maybe in all this craziness I will actually get MY Christmas cards done before Dec. 24! Oh, I almost forgot. I am going to the Stampin' Up regional this Friday (as in day after tomorrow) in Kansas City. I am really excited. So keep your fingers crossed that I make it there. It is about a 3.5 hour drive so I have to leave at 5am!! That is not a time that usually appears on my clocks and I just pray that they fixed my van properly yesterday so I don't end up stuck somewhere missing the sure-to-be fabulous event.
Thanks for stopping in! Till next time, Tasha

They look nice on the web site! Can not wait to see the everyday ones and the snow on the house roof.

Just think this time tomorrow night you will be 4 1/2 hours from leaving for regionals. I so wish we were going together instead of different days!
