Drunken Stampers Christmas card swap, part 1

Good Morning to you all! Well, I thought it was long past due to share the cards I made for my teammies for our first Drunken Stampers card swap! I'll be posting a few per post here and there. Here is the first batch:

Here's the inside:

Yep. I made a card with Rudolph farting. LOL! I know, I'm not right in the head! My little scene was based on the inside sentiment. (Bet you won't think about that Christmas carol the same way again! HA!) This is the card I made for my evil doublemint twin, Jessi. I think I scored major points from her boys for this card! ☺ I stamped and colored the deer with SN markers. I also stamped the legs of the deer on some scrap paper, fussy cut out, and used as a mask so that I could stamp the shadow. I used the explosion stamp from the Great Chemistry set for the, ahem, gas. (Explosion indeed!) Added the alpha stickers to finish the front. The inside sentiment was printed off my computer then I stamped Merry Christmas under it. This was such a perfect card for my family, that I made two of them, and sent the other one to my brother Jim!

I'm going to enter this card for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Anything Goes.

Ok, so on to my next card. This one I made for Donna. She collects all things skulls, so of course I made a Santa skull card!

the inside of the card:

I heat embossed the skull on a white panel, framed it with some red DP, and doodled around the edges before adhering it to the card base. I've had these Santa hat stickers in my stash for at least a couple years, and this one fit the  skull perfectly! I stamped the inside and was done!

This last card I sent to Lynne. She excels at all thing crafty!

Here is the inside:

When I made this card, it was based on a sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch. I love that cute little snowman! He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers, then I added Stickles to him and his shadow for a bit of sparkle. The strip of red card stock was dry embossed before being adhered. That snowflake is a sticker that I found in my stash. Score!

Simon Says Stamp has an embossing challenge going on at their Wednesday challenge blog, so I'm entering these two cards over there.

Well, that's it for now. I'll post more cards soon. Now it's off to take my fur baby, Colby, for a walk. Thanks for sticking it out until the end! LOL! Enjoy your day!

    THANKS for all of your love and support on my blog-- you are sooooooo sweet <3 You make me feel extra special <3 HUGS!

  7. Hey wait a minute, I'm getting the impression that people think I like farts, reading the comments here. (OK, you got me. lol)
    You absolutely knocked my socks off - and the boys? They really truly did think it was the best Christmas card they'd ever seen. Next year you'll need to figure out a variation of 'pull my finger' with Santa :)

    1. LMAO! That 'pull my finger' with Santa idea is hysterical! I'm so glad that you and the boys enjoyed the card!

  8. I love your sense of humor! Now I NEED a fart stamp. Must check my chemistry stamp sets.

  9. All fabulous cards, Chris! I especially like the skull Santa even though I wouldn't want to receive it. LOL Thanks so much for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Emboss It!
