Christmas Card Spree....

I am back!! And today my post is long as I went on a Christmas card spree :D I ended up making four cards. Why so many... well for one I have to send out the cards in family and two I bought some new stamps :) All my cards have snowfall as their theme. So here I go...
My first card is also a reminder for Mixed Media Card Challenge #6 - Home. Don't forget to play along. Here is a close up into my card....

To make this card, I inked the panel on one side to create the landscape and the sky using Distress inks. Then I stenciled the snow with stencil n embossing paste. I die cut the trees n stems, inked them. Took a cork house and adhered it all on the panel. I also added some embossing paste on trees n house to create the effect of snow. Next I added a strip patterned paper and kraft next to the panel to finish the card. I am sharing this at Virginia's View #10 - All things Distressed, Just us Girls Challenge #271 - Mixed media, Retrosketches #145 and Color Q #272
 
 

My next two cards use my new stamps. I have been stalking the Purple Onion Designs cuties for a while now and finally I bought a few of their adorable stamps. Here are my cards...
To make this one, I cut the panel at angles, did some masking n inking to create the snow hills, added embossing paste for snow. Stamped, colored and fuzzy cut the penguin and adhered the panel on card base with a red patterned paper below it. added the penguin with some foam dots. I am sharing this with CAS(E) this Sketch #103, Shopping Our Stash #181 - Red Alert, CASology Week #126 - Snow and Merry Monday #139 - Winter wonderland
 

My next card was a quick one and has the adorable fox from Purple onion designs :)
I inked the card base in blue, added embossing paste for snow. Die cut the grass with some patterned paper. Stamped colored and fuzzy cut the fox and adhered it all on the card base. I am sharing this with Muse #98 - Marion Vagg, Christmas Card Challenge #2- CAS, 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Pick a previous challenge (I picked March theme - Christmas Animals) 
    

And now my last card...
Here, I cut out two panels smaller in size from the card base. On the bigger panel, I stamped the plaid pattern, on the smaller panel, I die cut the cloud, stamped some snowflakes and sentiment. Adhered all the pieces on the card base. I am sharing this at Time Out Challenge # - Amy Wanford, AAA Card Challenge #30 - Plaid and City Crafter Challenge Blog #242 - Christmas Colors
