Christmas Extravaganza Pines and Poinsettias Card 1

Good morning, more show and tell from the Christmas Extravaganza day. If you attend one of our days we always make sure that you end up with lots of goodies and this time everyone had the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set. Now I have to be honest with you, when it was agreed that I would be making the class with this set I was less than thrilled......this set isn't really "my thing" and I didn't have a clue where to start. However, once I started playing I fell in love with it and was really pleased with how the cards came out. This is the first one:
The colour combo for this set is Chocolate Chip, Crumb cake, Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wisabi. I have coloured the pine cones in with my SU markers which allows you to have more than one colour on an image.
The papers are "Holly Berry Bouquet" and are really nice, there are larger prints on one side and smaller prints on the other side. There really is something for everyone.
I'll pop back tomorrow with the second card. x

Christmas Extravaganza Polar Party Tag

You will be pleased to know that the trip to the hairdresser went well and I am looking a little less yeti this morning! LOL
This is the final piece of the Polar Party class, a matching tag for the card and box.
I have used a Sizzix die for the tag and have used the same colour combo as the other two projects.
I will pop back soon with my other class, a set of cards using the Pines and Poinsettias stamp set.
See you soon xxx

Christmas Extravaganza Polar Party Card

Good morning, I hope that you have all recovered from the Halloween festivities....... I still have green face paint under my nails!!!! ARGHHHHH
It is time for a bit of crafty show and tell, I made two classes for our Christmas day, this is the card from the Polar Party class.
I have used the new In Colors from Stampin' Up! Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party, I love how they have gone together and love the alternative Christmas colours! The stamp set is so cute and I love how crisply they stamp!
I have coloured it in with SU ink pads and have added some glitter elements. The ribbon is the new ruffled ribbon which I have fallen in love with! I will be getting some more of these!
I will pop back tomorrow and show you the matching gift box......till then xxx
