At Craftersanonymous Monday night we did a circular callendar. I decorated the front with the SU stamp set Always Elegant and Rich Razzelberry. The numbers come from the medium sizzlets set for the big shot, which has numbers and both upper and lower case alphabets.

The card I made with the Stocking Tag punch which was available to people who had a $500 workshop last month along with the stamp set Stitched stockings. The stockings are stamped and punched out and hung over the mantle which is made to go above the fire. The hearth is made from the jewelry tag punch and the flames from Blossom petal Builder punch. The bricks are 1/4 inch and hand placed to resemble an old fire place.
Rachel had an awesome workshop where the ladies made the christmas cracker and the star. The christmas cracker is made from whisper white cardstock, the embossed it with the bigshot and an embossing folder and then we sponged it with shimmer paint Frost white(116854). Can you see the shimmer on the petals of the flower? It does look so pretty. We added a flower from the 5-petal flower punch (119880)and the boho blossoms punch (119858)and added the sentiment Merry Christmas from the contempo Christmas (121498) as it fit so well in the Decorative label punch (120907).
The star is made of DSP and cut so you can curl each of the layers to the opposite side. It is very pretty hanging but my photos are of it on the worktop. The DSP being double sided gives an amazing look to this star.

Punch art done with StampinUp punches. I got hooked on punch art when I saw it done by Anne Brignal on Crafters Anonymous some time ago and then when I spent some time with Julia and her family last week she had done these characters from Sesame Street so I had to copy them. Santa is similar to my punchart Santa I have done before and Mrs Claus is from a punch art I saw that was a lady and I just gave her white hair and red clothes.
