More Christmas cards inspired by the Workshop

The Holiday Workshop has now finished, but I have still a few cards to share and I haven't even started on the Wrap Up day.  So today I have some cards to share. 

First up a card from Day 3

HCW Day 3

Day three was all about CAS.  This one uses a Hero Arts tree stamped in a variety of Hero Arts Inks. -note the final colour - I didn't clean the stamp properly after the Punch ink and then inked up the Soft Pool... made a bit of a purple colour!  I used some of the ink to colour the stars and baubles and added some Glossy accents.  The PP is from American Crafts and the sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set, stamped and embossed.  

I used the same tree stamp to make a card inspired by Shari from Day 5

HCW Day 4 ~ trees

I loved Shari's soft blues and greens so used those.  The trees were stamped and coloured with Distress Inks.  I coloured the baubles with a Sukura Glitter Pen.  I made the little blue stared piece of card by stamping and white embossing a Simon Says Stamp border and did a resist technique using some Broken China distress stain.  The  green is a scrap of PP.  Finished with some blue, green and white bakers twine and some green and blue sequins   

and finally another card inspired by Shari's on Day 4

HCW Day 4 -

I CASE'd the card from Shari using stamps I had on hand... the lights are from Inkadinkado and the sentiment from Hero Arts  as is the little bird.  I stamped it with HA ink - Punch and then coloured with a Copic.  The edges were cut with a Spellbinders die.

Thanks for bearing with me while I've shown off the cards I've made.  This class is probably one of the best I've done... so much inspiration!  

Summer is here now in NZ...  we've just had an amazing weekend weather-wise. So warm and sunny both days.  Just loving it.

I love the cards you've made from the class, Dawn! The colors are so soft and pretty. It is very cold here this morning; I'm not a cold weather person!!

OH, my - but you are seriously going to town, big-time! These are remarkable. I am so partial to the last one - love those soft curved cuts and that sweet birdie has my heart. Great job, Dawn.
