Holiday card making in full swing

Here are a few of the holiday cards that I've made lately.



I absolutely love the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper. I've been trying to use bits of it here and there. This card layout was cased from a card that we made at Sharon and Milette's North Texas Shoebox Swap in October. I changed the colors and papers, but kept the cool fold.

Details:
Cardstock - White, Stampin' Up! Soft Sky, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Ink - Stampin' Up! Ruby Red
Stamps - Season of Joy
(Stampin' Up!)


Another one using Figgy Pudding. This card is way outside my normal color range, but I love the way it turned out.

Details:
Cardstock - White, Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip and Ruby Red, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Ink - Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Versamark, Stampin' Up! markers - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Ruby Red
Stamps - Believe

Accessories - Detail Gold Embossing Powder (SU!), sponge, Stickles, dimensionals
Here's a new stamp set that I couldn't wait to try out. I love this big swirl! This is a set from Gel-a-tins called Spiral Symphony. The card is very simple, but I love the way it turned out.

Details:
Cardstock - Stampin' Up! Shimmery White
Ink - Stampin' Up! Blue Bayou and Purely Pomegranate
Stamps - Spiral Symphony (Gel-a-tins), Playful Christmas (Kitchen Sink Stamps)
