Christmas Card Class Session 1

I almost forgot to post these!!  I held my first Christmas Card class on September 3rd and we had a blast.  Here are the two cards that we made.  My next class is Friday October 1st from 6-8, you will make 10 Christmas Cards for $22.  Let me know if you would like to join us!!  Can't make it, order your supplies in MY STORE


This first card uses Serene Snowflakes in Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and Frost White Shimmer Paint.  The greeting is from Season of Joy.  We added Silver Glass Glitter to the middle of each snowflake.  Notice the Decorative Label punch from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  We layered extra punchouts under the greeting and wrapped the card with Marina Mist Grosgrain and added some Silver Tinsel Trim in the knot.


This card uses the Tags Til Christmas and Delightful Decorations stamp sets and the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Bigz XL Die 114506 and the Ornament Punch.  The Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die from the Holiday Mini Catalog gives us the cute Scallop border on the left edge.  We finished it off with a Clear Rhinestone Brad in the center of one of the ornaments.

Let me know if you want to come to the next class, it is next Friday, October 1st.  Get those Christmas Cards done early so you don't have to worry. :-)

My 12 Weeks of Christmas Ideas starts next week, be sure you are ON THE LIST to receive them.

My controlfreaks swap from the Holiday Mini Catalog

It's that time again, time to show you my swap for the Controlfreaks from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  These gals are the best and I get so many wonderful swap cards from them!!

My card uses a set from the Holiday Mini Catalog called French Foliage with More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler.


I started by randomly stamping the leaves on a full sheet of Very Vanilla in the colors I had chosen and then cut it up, think One Sheet Wonder here.  I spritzed the pieces with water to make them more pliable and crumpled them up.  I inked the stamp from the Distressing Essentials Kit in Tea Stain and rubbed it over the whole stamped image.  The leaf is from the Leaves #2 Bigz Die and after I cut it out with my Big Shot, I ran it through again with the wood grain plate in the Texture Plates Kit #4.  The leaf and stamped piece were then spritzed with Gold Glory Smooch Spritz and I added some of the yummy NEW Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding to finish it off.

I cannot wait to see what the other gals have come up with!!

2010holidayminisampler Round 1 & 2 of my Seasonal Sweets Holiday Mini Shares is going out today.  Round 3 is full and I would love to fill Round 4 by the end of the week as it only needs a couple more participants.  This is a GREAT way to get a sampling of some of the NEW products in the Holiday Mini Catalog without breaking the bank.
