Day 3 of showcasing our class Christmas Cards.

If you saw my post on Monday, I shared with you one of the cards we created in our Creative Cards Class showcasing the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  Grab it while you are able as it is one of the items retiring from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Once again, I’ve used the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set but heat embossed it with the Silver Emboss Powder.Year-of-Cheer-1---Inside

To compliment the lovely DSP & embossing,  we’ve used touches of Silver Foil both to the card front & to the inside of the card.

The snowflake on the front of the card is from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Die & has been die cut from Silver Foil.

To pick up the silver in the DSP, I’ve layered onto a piece of Smokey Slate CS & then to the Base Card – Thick Whisper White.

To finish off the card I scattered Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the embossed sentiment.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Year-of-Cheer---Close-Up

Good Morning Stampers,

Over the next 2 weeks I will be sharing with you the Christmas Cards we have been creating in our classes, all very different but all with a bit of a wow.  In fact, the ladies are loving them & keep coming back so that must be a good thing, right?

Today’s card is one I actually cased from Pinterest to get my creative juices flowing usingYear-of-Cheer---Inside the gorgeous Year of Cheer Speciality DSP..  Thank you to Connie for your inspiration.  Of course I’ve put my own spin on it.

The sentiment is from the Peace This Christmas Stamp Set.  One which I think has been a little overlooked this year.  It is so easy to do with all the new product to play with.

It has been stamped in VersaMark & then heat embossed using the Copper Emboss Powder.  I’ve randomly scattered a couple of the lovely White Perfect Accents to complete the card.

Don’t forget to use the new Host Code for November when shopping Online.  Don’t forget the End-End Sales Event which includes discounted items & retiring items from the current 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

Colourful-Seasons---Close-U

Today’s card is another we created in our Cards @ Toogoom class a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the 1st card here.  Both cards use the Emboss Resist Technique which you can find Technique Tutorials here.

For some reason I love Christmas baubles.  Don’t know why, but I especially love that they can come in all sizes & colours.  I don’t have a bauble set so I set about creating some of my own.

We used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set to create our card by randomly stamping the Colourful-Seasons---Insidesnowflake images onto a piece of Whisper White CS, using the Emboss Resist Technique & punching out 3 different size circles.

To hang the baubles we die cut a “branch” from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, & Silver Foil before being attaching Silver Metallic Thread.  The Whisper White background has been embossed using the Softly Falling EF & then layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim CS.

Technique Class Card #1

We started back with our first Technique Class for the year last Sunday week.  It was so 010wm-bloglovely to catch up with the ladies  & hear about what they had been up too since our last get together.

We started out with an easy one, Technique – Heat Embossing.  I never tire of this Technique.

We had a play with the “Have a Cuppa” Bundle from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue.

Along with the Technique we managed to create a card which opened a little different.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Gift Cards

G’day Stampers,

Today’s post is a very short one, but thought I would share with you these cute little 3 x 3 Gift Cards created using the beautiful Stamp Set – Ornamental Pines from the Holiday Catalogue.

These took me all of about 5 minutes to create, but is a great way to use up little bits of scraps that may be hanging around just waiting to be used.

In fact, I created them once I had finished cutting all my kits for this Technique Class which you can see Card # 1 Here & Card # 2 from Monday’s post.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Christmas Wishes

The Christmas products in this year’s Holiday Catalogue are gorgeous.  I love everything single Christmas Set & didn’t really know what to get my hands on first, so I did the sensible thing & planned classes around each of them.026blog

Today’s card is one of the ones we created early in September.  I know, slack on my behalf.

As soon as I saw this set & the samples in the catalogue I knew I wanted to plan a “Heat Embossing” Technique Class around them.  They were just beautiful.  Mind you, I did add a couple of “Vicky” touches to make them my own.

We didn’t really use a lot of product to create this gorgeous card, although I added Night of navy as the Base Card & Heat Embossed the 2 Cones using VersaMark & Soft Suede Ink, cut out & adhered to the top of the branch which has been Heat Embossed using VersaMark & White Embossing Powder.

Of course, we couldn’t complete the card without using the stunning new “All is Calm” Washi Tape

Measurements –

1 x Night of Navy Cardstock               11 ¾” x 4 1/8” or 29cm x 10.5cm

1 x Pool Party Cardstock                     5 5/8” x 4” or 14.5cm x 10cm

1 x Whisper White Cardstock           5/8” x 4” or 1.5cm x 10cm

Scrap Whisper White Cardstock      Enough for 2 x stamped pine cones

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Card # 2….

…  for our Technique Class a little while ago.
I love the final outcome of this card – simple little card, different fold, but with a bit of a WOW!  The class loved it!  Mind you, it is always a load off my mind when the ladies love the cards.  It is not my usual colours but that is the best part about classes – they get you out of your comfort zone!
As an added bonus, we created an envelope to fit our card using the “Envelope Punch Board“!
