Christmas Card Club Challenge #14- White on White/smidge of colour

Well, I'm sorry to be running so late, but my craft room is unbearably hot😱 It gets full sun from about 11.00am onwards, and it's like a greenhouse in there. And we all know fans and papercrafts do not play nicely together! I've taken the liberty of combining Christines challenge this fortnight, with another I missed due to holidays- Carols' Sentiment as the Focus' theme.
 I've used a lot of my Christmas embossing folders again- and made 19 cards!

 For my 'smidge of colour', I used gold, silver, red & green embossing powder, and matted that onto matching foil card.
This sentiment is from  a Hobby Art set called Winter Wishes. The red embossing powder is by WOW, called Primary Burgundy Red.
 The green is an old one, called Moonglow two-toned Embossing Powder, and this green is called Fiddlehead Fern & Green Blue.
The die used for the shapes is the same in both these cards, just a different orientation. Its from Spellbinders, and is called Labels 4, in two sizes, large & small.
 The two separate sets combined give you a smaller border than just using one of them.

This sentiment stamp is by Circa Design,XM-VS-62.
The embossing powders are the same in all the cards. The gold & silver detail powders are both by Stampendous.

Another sentiment from Circa Design, XM-VS-13.
 Matted this time onto card die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die set I bought from The Works.

Yet another Circa Design stamp,XM-VS-10. Some were die cut with the Spellbinders Large Labels, some with the Stitched Rectangles. All the matt pieces were cut with the Stitched Rectangles, as the largest Labels die was used to cut out the sentiment.

And the final group, this stamp is from the Hobby Art set, and the die is Spellbinders Lacy Squares. I've had this for ages, but it's the first time I've gotten round to using it.

What a wonderful stash of WoW cards, and I loved your idea of combining the challenges, as your cards fit each challenge perfectly. Combining the colored foil with the white was so pretty (and was the smidge of color too!) and I love all these pretty embossing folders you've used. I understand about the heat in the room. We used to have the same problem with the room that has the computers - which generate heat too. In the afternoon the western sun would heat the windows so much that even with the a/c running, ceiling fans, I'd still have to cut off the computers. We had film put on the windows which helped a bit. When we replaced those windows with some more energy efficient ones, that helped a good bit as well. Good luck, and stay cool. TFS

Shaz I love how with just a few materials and tools, you created all of these cards. With the black hole of art supply plethora we have today, isn't it just almost magical how one tool or a few can produce so much variety? I am not even going to think of how much money and space I could be saving, no no no hahaha! Well done! xoxo
