Our Christmas Card Swap

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Well it is time for another Swap from our Krafty Kard club.  We met at Erin's house and she did not let us down.  Everything was decorated and ready for the Holiday's.
Along with our card swap we were supposed to bring a stamp set that we hadn't used much if at all.  We passed around a bag with all the stamps sets in it and you had to grab one out without looking at them.  I got a country one with 3 farm animals on it.  I can't wait to make my cards with it.  Then we had a Secret Santa gift exchange.  What a great time we had.

Here they all are.  They make cute decorations on my hutch.

Laurie made this beautiful card she used gold mirror paper and white paper.  The dies she used were from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Heartfelt Creations, and Memory Box.  Some of these are now discontinued.

Donna used a stamp set from Stampin up.  This is so simple and so cute.  I love it.  She just colored the snowman in and there you have it.

Jeannine made these cute little treat boxes from the Artiste page 50.   The mustache, is from Art Philosophy.  The Holly leaves and pom pom are from Artiste. The eyes are brads.

This is the Tag that Jeannine made and she cut it out with the Z1790 Artiste cartridge.  It also uses the Z1686 Art Philosophy and an older stamp set from CTMH.  The Seam binding she got on Amazon and she got a great deal.  You just ink it with a color you want then crunch it up, let it dry.  

Our newest member is Cathy and this was her first time with all of us.  She hand cut everything WOW!  Then she hand painted the face and that was a lot of work I am sure.  The cup holds a packet of hot chocolate.  The cup is embossed with snowflakes,  she added some bling and a silver snowflake.  She is going to fit right into the group.

Lani made a snowman tag.  The Holly, Snowflakes is from Impression Obsession they are disc, The Snowman is from Tim Holtz,  The saying is an older Stampin Up stamp so is the ticket.  The Ribbon is seam binding that you just ink and crunch up and let it dry.

This is Kathy's card and she used the Close To My Heart Polar Bear Holiday It is stamped and then colored in. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  The Snow flakes are embossed in white  and Prizma Glitter.  Such a cute card.

Erin used a vintage photo that she bought on Etsy. She attached it on glitter paper that was cut in a stamp shape.  She attached ribbon on the top. On the bottom she attached a bell to the bow.  I love how it turned out.

Elizabeth Crafts die and Spellbinders poinsettia die that Laurie used to make this cute tag.  The pearls in the center of the poinsettia really bring the flower to life.

Tamara used the window from Tim Holtz and a Tim Holtz Brick pattern embossing folder.  What a great card this is for the holidays.  The poinsettia is a 3-D sticker.

This is Debb's card and she used a piece of fabric that she liked and then scanned onto photo paper.
 She embossed the blue cardstock after cutting a circle in the center.  The photo does not do this one any justice at all.

Tamara is our Artiste she does beautiful paintings.  She made us all an ornament, mine is the tree

Our desert was awesome.  Erin made a Chocolate Caramel Cake, boy was that good!

What a great bunch of ladies.  We always have a great time.  Everyone is so talented in their own way.  I can't wait until our next meeting in February
