Christmas Card Class #3

Another card from my Christmas Card classes, using the Peaceful Pines bundle.

Peaceful Pines

Here’s the fixin’s!

The card base is Garden Green.  The panel is Whisper White.  First, we stamped the tree on the white panel in Garden Green and added the string of lights in Real Red, ON THE LEFT SIDE, and cut it out with the matching framelit.  We then embossed the white panel with the Softly Falling TIEF.  We adhered the tree we stamped and cut out next to the “hole” from the cut out tree.  We wrapped real red satin ribbon (from the Clearance Rack) around the white panel and tied a piece of gold cord around it.  The panel is adhered to the card base with dimensionals, adding a couple next to the tree cutout to give it extra dimension.

I used the mini star punch and gold glimmer paper for the stars, which are adhered with dimensionals.  Lastly, Merry Christmas, from Teeny Tiny Wishes is stamped in Garden Green on a Whisper White scrap and punched with the Washi Label punch and adhered to the bottom with dimensionals.  I then took the 2-way glue pen and dotted a little glue randomly over the card, sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and shook off the excess.

All of the supplies for this card may be purchased by clicking on the shopping basket.  And, if you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator, I’d love to have you on my team!

Until next time………stay inky, my friend!

Christmas Card Class #2

In an earlier post, I showed you one of our cards from the Christmas Card classes, using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.  Today, I have another one using the Lots of Joy stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  I originally made this card at a Stamp Across America class at the Stampin’ Up! Convention last summer.

Lots of Joy

Here’s the fixin’s!

This card is made with the new Whisper White Thick CS as the base.  The thick CS is much sturdier than the original Whisper White CS, and is perfect for card bases.  There is a layer of Crumb Cake CS, then a layer of Old Olive CS, which has been embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF.

I’m frugal when it comes to saving card stock, so the Crumb Cake tree on the front is actually punched from the bottom Crumb Cake layer.  I do this so much in classes, that my stampers have come to expect it.  Before they put their cards together, they now ask “do we need to punch anything from this layer?”  LOL  You only see an 1/8′ of this layer, so why not use the center that is covered by the next layer?!

Next, a strip of DSP from the Merry Moments pack is adhered across the front about an inch from the bottom of the card.

The plaid tree and greeting from the Lots of Joy set are stamped in Crumb Cake on a scrap of white and punched using the Tree punch and the Label Bracket punch.  The tree is layered with the Crumb Cake punched tree, linen thread is adhered to the back, and they are adhered with dimensionals.  I added a few gold sequins to give it a little sparkle.

All of the supplies for this project can be purchased by clicking the shopping basket.  I’d also love to be your demonstrator, if you don’t have one.  And, if you think you’d like to become a demonstrator, I can help with that, too!

Until next time………stay inky, my friends!

Too Cute Turkey

I know Thanksgiving is past, but my friend, Janet Demonbreun gave me this cute little turkey and I had to share!

Janet made these for her mother’s 95th Birthday Party.  She made 16 of these……that’s a lot of feathers!

I don’t have the fixin’s for you this time, but it’s made with the Curvy Keepsake Box die.  If you haven’t seen it, there are SO many adorable ideas using this box.  Just search for Curvy Keepsake Box on Pinterest, and you’ll find a ton of ideas.

Until next time………stay inky, my friends!
