Christmas Cards Workshop for October

I can't believe that it is October already.  That means that it is time for my Christmas Card workshop.  This month for my workshops and stamp clubs we will be making 4 Christmas Cards.  Here they are:

I used the Pear and Partridge Paper pack from the Autumn/Winter catalog.  Here is a closer look at each card:
Card #1 I used the S1210 October Stamp of the Month set for the ornament and the sentiment.  I used the Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut out the ornament shape before stamping.  I also used the Artiste Cartridge to cut out the paper bow on top of the ornament.  I added red sparkles to the front of the ornament.
Card #2 I used stamp sets D1527 Perfect Fit - Frames for the stripe piece and B1412 Perfect Fit - Holidays for the sentiment.  The birds are from C1510 Merry and Bright stamp set.  I also want to thank www.cricutwithheart.blogspot.com for the card idea.  I used her design and then added the bird to my card.
Card #3 I used C1510 Merry and Bright stamp set for the wreath and the bird.  I want to thank Kandi Gallegos-Garcia for the wreath part of this card design.  Here is a link to her blog so you can check out her card - www.teojax.blogspot.com  The bird is raised up with 3-D foam tape and the eye has a black mini-sparkle.  I colored the flowers in using the new Cranberry alcohol markers Z2419 - you get 2 complimentary colors in the set.

Card #4 I used S1210 October Stamp of the month for the Mittens and the snowflake shape and B1412 Perfect fit - Holiday stamp set for the circle and the sentiment.  I also used the Cricut Artist to cut out the mittens and the snowflake shape.  What a huge time saver.

Over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog they are looking for Christmas Ideas this week.  So if you are getting ready to make your Christmas cards go ahead and see what everyone is creating there. 
Have a great month!
