Christmas Card Swap & Holiday Extravaganza!

A little over a week ago, we had another downline meeting where those who attended got to swap cards. The meetings usually consist of 6-8 of us who come to learn more about Stampin' Up! techniques and products. This month's swap theme was Christmas, so anyone who wanted to participate brought a Christmas related card using a stamp set from the current catalog or Holiday Mini Catalog.

Here is the one I brought using the Tree Trimmings set.

This one was made by my upline, Andrea using the Sweet Centers set (from the mini catalog) with red hots in the middle.
This one was made using Delightful Decorations, another set from the holiday mini catalog. I just love the un-traditional Christmas colors! And this set is great because we have an Ornament Punch that makes those ornaments quick and easy to punch out!
This card was created using the Hostess Level 1 set from the mini holiday catalog, called Patterned Pines. I've used this set before for a card I created for a workshop last month.
Patterned Pines again. I love the brown tones!

This card was made using the ornament hook from the Sweet Centers set and she embossed it in silver. She then textured the Crushed Curry cardstock before punching a circle out to make the look of an ornament. The background is also textured and it is bordered using the cut out of the Top Note die from our Big Shot.

Those are great cards. I love the edge punch (I can't remember the name of it). It is one that is on my wish list.
