Here is one card I can share, Elzybell.
For this version I used the Holiday Harmony designer series paper (retired) from the past holiday mini. I used always artichoke, river rock, purely pomegranate and whisper white card stock. The Noel was colored with an artichoke marker and to get the pomegranate color to match I used a blender pen and some ink from the lid of the ink pad. The ribbon is the purley pomegranate satin ribbon. The satin ribbon is on sale, Buy one get 1 free until 12/15. It also comes in chocolate! and I also punched the corners with the ticket corner punch.
For this one, I used the Wintergreen designer series paper. This paper is soon to be retired, if you need some, please Email me before the end of the month. Card stock is sage shadow, always artichoke, certainly celery and whisper white. I used non- Stampin' Up! ribbon in my stash that matched the artichoke perfectly. Again, I had dazzling diamonds glitter all over the ornament and I colored with the matching markers and used the ticket corner punch on the corners.
I have been busy, busy busy! I am wrapping up my merry and bright class, decorating the house, shopping for the kids and family, and all the other holiday stuff that happens this time of year! Ho Ho Ho!
These tent topper style cards are very addicting! this one is made with last year's retired holiday mini set, Jolly Holiday. Card stock is bashful blue, wild wasabi, whisper white and watercolor paper. Santa is stamped in black stazon and colored with the water brush and watercolor crayons to match. The designer paper is from the Winter Bright simply scrappin' kit.
I created the scallop border with the corner rounder and I used the Marvy Mega and Giga circle scallop punches for Santa. Doodles are done with the white gel pen. The Merry Christmas label is punched from the designer label punch and the stamp is from the level 1 hostess set. I added a circle behind it with some piercing. This is a very easy layout to work with.

This is the 2nd card I used for inspiration for my customers that purchased the Wishing You Cheer set when it was on sale a few weeks ago. The card is 6x3 in size. The base is soft sky and its layered with blue bayou and the designer paper included in the Merry and Bright simply scrappin' kit. I created the window with the 1 3/8 inch square punch. It lined up perfectly and was easily centered on this strip of paper. I added per piercing to the layers for a little added detail. The snowman is colored with markers and blender pens to match and highlighted with dazzling diamonds glitter for the snow. The 2 pieces of matching stitched ribbon (wasabi and soft sky) are tied in a punch out from the slot punch.

I was inspired to make this card after seeing this one by Cindy Haffner. I cased it (copied and selectively edited) to make it my own. My card is made on brocade blue which was an exact match to the DCWV winter stack from a few years ago. The Marvy oval scallop punches were uses on the snowman. He has Dazzling Diamonds on his sides and just a little on his face. I layered with some whisper white cardstock and I used markers to color the snowman. The white gel pen made the doodles on the scallops and the ticket corner punch makes the notched edges. The sliver trimmed blue and white ribbon is from Michael's. I bought it last year on clearance for $1.00. The sentiment from this set is stamped on the inside in white craft ink.
Mellow Moss is the card base stamped with the sanded background stamp in black. Spiral punch and 1 3/8 inch square punch make the filmstrip. Bashful blue layers. Markers are used for the coloring and all holidays for the Hugs and kisses sentiment. and a scrap of taffeta ribbon to match.

I love this card! Inspiration (and some "case"ing) for this card came from Beate's Sparkly Tree's card here. She is a queen of cards I love all of her designs.
For this I used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set in my 1st Tent topper card. I used the wintergreen designer paper from Stampin' Up (which is on promotion in November, email me for the details) plus always artichoke and shimmery white card stock. There is a major sparkle effect since I added more glitter to the snow. I also used Taffeta ribbon, some brads, corner rounder and the sentiment is from short and sweet. almost forgot the white gel pen!
I used close to cocoa as the card base and layered it with CTMH garden green (an exact match) and the designer paper is Basic Grey infuse. Stamps are Fancy flexible phrases (retired) and the Oh So l=Lovely hostess set. I added some old wide brown organdy ribbon from my stash, some matching markers to give the flowers some color and pewter brads for some hardware. Yikes- 8 brads on one card was really hard for me!
So now she, and all my other co-workers have been waiting for the popcorn, and waiting. The pack ordered well over $13K of popcorn and they still ran out. Some will be available tonight but the rest will come as late as November 10th. Anywho, She will get this non-scout popcorn to hold her over. This was also a technique challenge on Splitcoast this week. to view it click HERE
So I have been trying to improve my photography skills, and I do believe I am challenged. I followed the advice of some other bloggers and added the white background and used natural light, etc and these pictures (yesterday's and today's) look very dark- even though the room I am is is bright and cheery. Onward- I'll keep working on it.
I will have Samples of all 16 cards at the class and pictures for those that can not attend. These cards were designed by the talented staff at Stampin’ Up! and a fellow demonstrator. The card size is 6” x 3”. They are so bright and colorful, these pictures do not do them any justice.
Price: $25.00 (includes envelopes)
DATE: Friday November 16, (8-11pm)
