Christmas Cards #3

So I have a few more cards today and a craft for the kids school bazaar. But have to say that I am finding it hard to post these samples everyday so you will probably only see a post every second day with the Christmas Card workshop cards. I will try to write a quickie post to let you know what is going on and maybe include a craft project that I have done.
Alright so on to the projects for today. The first one is the Snowman Soup for the bazaar. What happens is the kids school collects gently used items and craft items to sell to raise money for the school. The cool part is that the kids get the chance to buy an item for their family on their own.  I know last year Rosie was only in grade 2 and she was so proud and excited that she had picked out a gift for me on her own and kept it a secret from me till Christmas morning. Oh of course I should tell you it was a ceramic vase. It now sits on top my china cabinet with some artificial flowers in it. Sorry got side tracked!

The Snowman soup is basically a hot chocolate package with a candy cane, marshmellows and a small chocolate bar. Very easy to make, just takes a legal size envelope, a crimper and some stamps. This is one of the items I know sells very well at the sale so have made 36 for this year. The stamp set is Stampendous and the snow flakes are all Stampin Up. I coloured it with both tombow and bic markers. Snowflakes were stamped with Stampin Up ink.

 This Santa card uses Recollections papers and K&Company patterned paper. The stamp is a Penny Black slapstick stamp. He was coloured with bic markers then highlighted with some copics and stickles. The ribbon is Stampin Up and the Merry Christmas stamp was a dollar bin buy at Michaels. You can't tell in the picture but Santa is pop dotted up with dollar store pop dots.

Well this post is getting a little longer than I had planned so I think I will save the other card I had to show till tomorrow. I hope everyone has had a good start to the week and I appreciate you stopping by to check in on me. Hope to see you back here tomorrow.

  1. I love that Santa card, I like colouring and that image has a lot going on. I can imagine that I would do a multi-coloured one and maybe even a theme coloured one, only in one colour like, blues or greens.
    You are really good to put that much effort in helping the school with the craft sale, I am sure they will sell out really quick.
    Looking forward to seeing the other cards.
