Daring Cardmakers, Stamp Something challenges and more

I decided it was time to really concentrate on getting quite a lot of Christmas cards made and to forget challenges for a couple of days. Day 1 - four cards made - one relegated to the bin (how pathetic is that). Day 2 was slightly more successful and imagine my joy when I realized two of these cards fit challenges.



This first card is for Daring Cardmakers whose brief this week is white with a hint of pink (I wondered why I's bought these pink poinsettas). I decided to do some round cards with tags at the top so they could be hung up if desired, although they do stand on their own. The white cs is embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakenfolder and I used my Leone Em punch on heat embossed silver paper to accent the flower and a rub-on greeting.




This second card is for The Stamp Something challenge - to use something black.

I stamped the PSX snowflake with Versamark ink and used Stampendous Disco black powder to heat emboss it. The white circle is embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder, the bc is from my 'use-it-up' box and the greeting is a rub-on.







These a few more of what I managed to accomplish, I dread to think how many more times I have to do this. None of these cards have photographed well due to my use of mirri card, Christmas being about the only time I use it.
