Catch Up

Today I started to build an upcoming workshop for our Papers N Pixels club, but before I did, I put together cards that were started, and never completed.  Here are a few of them, to remind me how I worked certain dies and colors.

The left card  is the Emma Ornament by Memory Box (#98411) and SU Christmas Seasonal Sayings (128009) on Night of Navy. (SU) The top of the ornament is holographic and glitter paper punches of Martha Stewart fir branches tied with holographic ribbon.  Pearls and an EF Sizzix # 658252 Dot #5 touched with Jelly Roll pen finish that one.  The card on the right is  Tattered Poinsettia a Bigz tie by Tim Holtz Sizzix #658251 cut on plain red cardstock and mounted on DP and gray paper.  The center  of the poinsettia is gold micro beads, and the card is tied with green organza ribbon. 

 The card on the left is Merry Christmas stamped in Real Red on Ecru cardstock a Tim Holtz stamp from Christmas Time CMS 141 stampset.  The Ornament is stamped on ecru and uses a Just Rite Deck the Halls Stamp (02150) that coordinates with Spellbinders S4-334 2011 Heirloom ornaments.  The card on the right is a Trina Clark Walker Graphic on shimmer-spritzed paper with stickle accents. I have made several of those--just love her work.
 The left card here is made for someone whose Christmas might not be so very happy this year.  It's a sweet dove of peace, colored pencils and gamsol and a red banner with EF from Tim Holtz Christmas Backgrounds and Borders #657480 The artpiece is cut from the old standby Labels 20 Spellbinders S5-026, finished with a Thinking of you sticker.  The one on the Right is a Holiday Sweet Magnolia stamp. and that is double die cut using Labels 17 Spellbinders (S5-025)   The EF on the cardstock is from the other EF Sizzix # 658252  Christmas Words,a nd the stamped sentiment is from Just Rite's Deck the Halls Set.
The card on the left is a shape card (that's the envelope behind it,) cut from Spellbinders S4-334 2011 Heirloom ornaments. The paper is sponged with Delicata Gold Ink (gorgeous stuff!) and topped with a stamped on ecru coordinating wood block stamp by Memory Box, and cut from the coordinating die    The card on the right is the same Little Miss by  Sweet Magnolia and is edged in doily cuts by Martha Stewart (tags) and the previously mentioned dies and EF.  This is also colored in pencils and Gamsol..
