Christmas Collage Cards

Hello everyone, hope you're all OK on a rather chilly Monday although at least it's not raining again.
I taught a card making class this morning with you've guessed I'm sure, a Christmas theme to some deceptively quick to make cards.
Here's one which fits this week's Sunday Stampers Challenge with a theme of Santa Claus is Coming to Town and I'm fairly sure Hels will be astounded how quickly this has appeared when I normally get it done right at the last minute.
A real mixture of stamps here. Santa is by Crafty Individuals CI-163, the text from the Papermania Classic Christmas set, the holly is by Art Impressions and the trees are Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.
The inks used are Adirondack Lettuce and Red Pepper. Distress Barn Door and VersaFine Smokey Gray. Some of the Santa panel was coloured with Promarkers to add detail after inking.

This next one fits several challenges:
Again a mixture of stamps. The deer are from the same Papermania set, the snowflakes from the Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight set and the jingle bells text is by Hero Arts.
Inks used are Adirondack Red Pepper, Denim, Lettuce and Aqua, Distress ink Barn Door, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky. I also used VersaFine Onyx Black.
Embossing powders Crystal Sparkle and White.
The lovely tree die is by Marianne Designs and was used on paper made the same way as for the bear card in my previous post.

Challenges for this one:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Snow/Snowflakes
ABC Christmas Challenge - Winter Wonderland
Craft Your Days Away - Christmas Trees
CRAFTS and Me Challenges - Glitter ( my panel with the deer is glittery)
