Being that Christmas is only about a month away, in class this morning we all got to create a Santa Claus card using the SU Good Cheer stamp set. The image is colored in with several SU watercolor markers...the edges of the image were torn and brushed with SU bravo burgundy...mounted with dimensionals onto some SU soft suede cardstock and the card base is SU bravo burgundy, adorned with some SU Gold elastic cord which can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog...and little touches of glitter just add that extra zing to Santa...oh and Rudolph...isn't he the cutest reindeer with his bright red nose...all ready to pull Santa's sleigh throughout the night!
Til next time...Happy Stamping! Happy Thanksgiving!
This morning in class we all made a cute little Christmas ornament using the SU scallop punch. It was so much fun! There is a little bead on top and a bell at the bottom for decoration...these are so easy to make.
I think that I have used the SU scallop punch more than any other, either because it is one of favorite punches or it is simply very versatile.
This card was almost exclusively cased from a card that I received in a swap perhaps from my weSTAMP group, but there is no name on the back, so I apologize for not being able to give credit where it is due...so, if someone knows who this person is, please inform me so that I may acknowledge her lovely creation.
We had so much fun this morning in my class which I host in my home once a month. Our little turkey friend's feathers are made using the SU scallop punch.
The sentiment is from the SU Grateful Greetings set which appears in the SU Holiday Mini Catalog.
This card was created for a dear friend of mine whose birthday is this week. She loves to cook and therefore I used the SU Bon Appetit stamp set. She is also one of my dear husband Ken and myselves' wine buddies...so I topped the plate off with the wine and cheese stamp!
This morning I got pretty busy around here in my Craft Studio.
Yesterday, I went to JoAnn's and browsed the fabric section and found a few very pretty fabrics with which to create some pretty fabric flowers using Stampin' Up!'s flower dies. I rarely take out a needle and thread, but when it comes to making something pretty, especially in the form of a flower, well I suppose that I tend to make exceptions.
My dear stamping friend Barbara inspired me to make these as she gave me a very pretty fall fabric flower to wear this time of year...Thanks Barbara!
Hope that you like this as much as I did making it!
Thought that I would share with you today my swap that I made for last week's weSTAMP group meeting.
This is one of my favorite Christmas stamps sets from Stampin' UP! along with a couple of others. I decided to make this card using the Joy Fold technique. I enjoy making cards that are unique in the way that they open.
