Christmas Cards Galore! ICS Blog Hop

It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for the ICS Blog Hop.

Today we're sharing Christmas Cards. And I am going to share a bunch! Last weekend I had a class at The Frederick Inn Bed and Breakfast. It's a lovely location, and it was all decorated for Christmas. I designed (with help from the catalog, our Demo group, and a sketch challenge) 5 cards that show off a range of styles and used a variety of sets. Let's have a look at the Inn and my cards.

Isn't the Inn lovely? 
Let's take a look at the cards now:

So Santa stamp set with Tropical Escape DSP. Stamped in Momento Ink and colored with our Stampin' Blends.

Alpine Sports Thinlits and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
Tip: Use our adhesive sheets to make your sled a sticker! Add the adhesive paper to the card stock, then die cut.

 Merry Christmas to All bundle and the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder. Plus the super awesome Sprig Punch. I used the Adhesive Sheets for the die cut words too.

The Warm Hearted stamp set (host stamp set) and the Festive Farmhouse DSP. This is one of my favorite card designs, such a quick and fun way to make any kind of card.

The Making Christmas Bright bundle and Santa's Workshop DSP. Plus Chalk Marker and Wink of Stella on the light bulbs.

I had a really great time sharing card making with new crafters and old friends. You should definitely plan a craft day with friends.

There were cookies, of course.

I love how all of the wonderful products from Stampin' Up can help us make lovely projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a great time going through the entire hop. I know that you will be inspired to make some of your own Christmas cards.
