Christmas Cards From My Crafty Friends: Part 2!

So following on from my last post i have more Christmas cards that some of my lovely crafty friends have handcrafted for me. So here you go:

Card from Jade:

Jade is another fellow Stampin' Up! demo and over the last couple of months has become a really good friend of mine! She always has fantastic ideas and this card really demonstrates that! She started off with a 'Whisper White' base and layered a piece of 'Elegant Eggplant' card on it, with the beautiful family image (from the 'Welcome Christmas' stampset) 'Clear Embossed' on the corner. Next she ripped a piece of 'Marina Mist' card (which she has embossed using the 'Big Shot' and a non-Stampin' Up! embossing folder'. She wrapped some 'Pear Pizzazz' 'Seaming Ribbon' around it and glued it down. The 'Merry Christmas' sentiment was stamped in 'Elegant Eggplant' ink onto 'Whisper White' card, she punched it out using the '1-3/8" Circle Punch' and then layered onto a 'Pear Pizzazz' 'Scallop Circle'.

I just love this card and the colour combo that Jade has used!! Jade is in Sri Lanka this Christmas. I'm following her travels on her travel blog! She has a fab crafty blog too and she has scheduled posts whilst she was away - so why not check it out: http://www.jadedcrafter.blogspot.com/ I'm wishing Jade a very safe trip and can't wait until she gets back and we can have some crafty sessions in 2012!!

Next up i have a couple of other cards made by friends of mine (non - Stampin' Up! Shock horror!!!) So here you go...

Card from Zoe:

Zoe is a fellow member of the Crafty Boots Challenge DT! and it was lovely of her to post be this beautiful card. Now, i'm afraid i don't know what  products and techniques she has used but i'm sure you'll agree a fab make!! Definately cheered me up recieving this beautiful card in the post! Zoe has a fab blog so why not check it out: http://craftygasheadzo.blogspot.com/

Finally i have a card made by a wonderfully craft work colleague of mine, Helen:

I'm in complete awe of Helens talent! She is always talking about new crafty techniques she has tried and tested and apparently she has the most amazing craft stash. We still haven't managed to catch up and craft and we definately have to fix a date in the calender for early 2012!! I have so much to learn! Again, i think you'll agree this is such a beautiful card - i just love the big red lush ribbon bow!!!

I feel so lucky to have such crafty and talented friends!!! I just love recieving handcrafted cards!! Thankyou lovely ladies!!!
