12 Cards of Christmas - Card 11

This is a long one...I have 5 cards to show you today, all using the same stamp set "Christmas Classics". I wasn't all that sold on this set when I saw it in the catalogue, but once I used it, it became an immediate favourite. The images stamp up so crisply and best of all, they work so well with lots of the punches.
There's lots more Ski Slope papers on these cards (I told you I have gone through tons of it!)

On this card, I stamped the bauble in Chocolate Chip ink, and then stamped another one in Real Red and punched it out with the 1" Circle punch. I used the "All scallops" stamp set for the Scallop trim.

Here I stamped some stars in Baja Breeze and then punched out a red one with the star punch and popped it on top. The sentiment is from the "Punches Three" Hostess set. I punched it out with the Scallop Square and trimmed off the top and bottom, and layered it on a Designer Label punched piece.

There's no punch for the Christmas tree, so I coloured it with markers and stamped it. It's difficult to tell in the pic but I stamped it again on some scrap and cut out the bottom 2 layers. For each layer, I attached the top part with snail, and just raised the bottom edge with dimensionals, to give a 3D effect.

This is a nice easy one. A bit of a different layout for me. I don't often centre everything on a card, but this one just felt right like that!

I think this one was my favourite of the bunch - Baja Breeze, Real Red and Chocolate Chip is a great Christmas combo, I think! I inked the whole stamp in Baja Breeze and then coloured parts of it in with Chocolate Chip and Real Red markers. I stamped the bell again and punched it out with the 1/2" Circle Punch and raised it up on Dimensionals. The "All Scallops " set adds a decorative trim to the bottom.

Here's the whole set all together:
