All 12 Snowhaven Christmas Cards

I thought I would share photos of all 12 Snowhaven Christmas Cards we made at my workshop yesterday.

I am just waiting to hear back from one person about my last pre-stamped kit, but as far as I know, these are all sold out.

But I am still offering my Workshop instructions/cutting guides to fellow CTMH Consultants for just $2 CAN.

I will also be sharing with you tomorrow how I used the same cutting guides from this workshop but I used a different paper pack and stamp set to create a set of cards with a birthday theme!

Totally versatile.

Happy creating!  :)

This Year's Bulk Christmas Card

I have a lot of Christmas cards built up in my stash so far for this year, but I always like to make a bulk set of at least one card.  

This one is it.  ;)

So far I've only made 4 of these cards, but I can easily whip up more if I don't have enough Christmas cards to mail out by the end of November.

I used a PTI tree die shape and cut it out of Kraft Paper, then simply backed it with a piece of the Kraft/Black houndstooth paper from the Basics Paper Fundamentals pack.

The "Merry" is a SU thinlets die.

Really a pretty easy card to create, and I like the layers and country feel of it by using the houndstooth with Cranberry, Kraft, Black and Colonial White color combination.  It just works.  :)

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Basics Paper Fundamentals; Kraft, Black, Colonial White, Cranberry CS
Stamp:  Merriest Christmas
Ink:  Black
Embellishments:  Clear Sparkles, Red Shimmer Trim, Black Star
Other:  Expressions Thinlits Die (SU), In the Meadow Silhouettes Dies (PTI), Micro-tip Scissors

Season's Greetings

Okay, so there is a card on page 96 of the current CTMH Annual Inspirations catalog
that caught my eye.  I love the layout design of it.

So I used the same design but switched out the papers and stamp to create this Christmas card.

I used a snowflake punch with our silver glitter paper,
and I colored some clear sparkles with a Cranberry marker.  

Everything else is pretty straight forward.  ;)

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Snowhaven; White Diasy CS; Silver Glitter Paper
Stamp:  Merriest Christmas
Ink:  Black
Marker:  Cranberry - retired
Embellishments:  Clear Sparkles

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

I really like this one.  :)

I first stamped the sentiment in Outdoor Denim ink.

Then stamped the angel image in Versamark ink and used clear embossing powder and heat set it.

After that I used a sponge and rubbed Glacier ink over top of the image, keeping the ink darker nearer the angel and gradually lightening it towards the outer edges of the cardstock.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH):
Paper:  Snowhaven; White Daisy, Topiary CS
Stamp:  Sing Glory
Inks:  Outdoor Denim, Glacier, Topiary, Versamark
Embellishment:  Outdoor Denim Twill ribbon - retired
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, 3D foam tape, Sponge, Cranberry marker - retired

Merry Little Christmas

I pulled out the Be Jolly hostess stamp set to create this simple card.

I paired it with one of the papers from Snowhaven.

I used a circle punch on the patterned paper, adhered it to the card base, and then stamped the sentiment with Black ink.

I colored the branch by using Glacier ink and a blending pen.  And I used an old Cranberry marker to color in the berries and "Merry".

Added a couple of adhesive stars and that was it.  So easy.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  Snowhaven; White Daisy CS
Stamp:  Be Jolly - hostess set
Inks:  Black, Glacier, and a Cranberry marker - retired

Tis the Season and Let It Snow (Be Jolly)

I created these two holiday cards using the Be Jolly hostess set.

Be Jolly costs only $6 (available only with Hostess rewards) and has four terrific images, and you can see all of them on page 7 of the current catalog. 

I used Versamark and Black ink to stamp the images, then sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over top and heat set.

Then I took my Blender pen and used Glacier ink to color the leaves and branches, and I used an old Cranberry marker to color in the hearts, berries and the word Jolly.

I ran strips of 3D foam tape just along the edges of the "cut-outs" to make it pop, but secured the further edges with regular adhesive.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH):
Paper:  Snowhaven; White Daisy CS
Stamp:  Be Jolly - hostess
Inks:  Glacier, Black, Versamark, Cranberry marker - retired
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Blender Pen, Micro-tip Scissors, 3D Foam Tape
