Christmas Wishes

This weekend is my first Christmas card class of the season.  I’m starting with a class featuring the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit from the Holiday Catalog.  The kit makes some really beautiful cards and I added stamping on my envelopes too.

Everyone coming to the class will get a start on their cards for the season – we will finish 20 cards in this class.

But today I wanted to show you how fun the coordinating stamp set is.  This is a card I made with the stamp set.

Christmas-Wishes

I used the Watercolor Christmas stamp set along with Tranquil Tide card stock and ink.  I added a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Paper Stack (It’s part of the paper sale going on this month).  The large circle is cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.

The Corrugated Elements embellishment and the little stamped hand cut tree are stapled on.  Yes I still use my retired Stampin’ Up! stapler.  But any stapler will do – this one just uses smaller staples than those normal office sized ones.

It’s a quick and easy card.  With just a few supplies you could make a stack of these and add them to the stack from the project kit and be ready for your holiday card sending in no time.

Thanks for visiting.

Every month I have a Card Maker’s Class at my stamping studio.  It’s the perfect class for every level of stamper.  You get to make the cards that you need and work at your own pace.  Card choices vary each month.  I’m there to help you with anything you need.  Upcoming dates for this class are:

  • Friday, October 27 – 10 am and 7 pm
  • Friday, November 17 – 10 am and 7 pm
  • Friday, December 15 – 10 am and 7 pm

Here is a look at the card choices from the September class last week.

Every card is in a shoe box with all the supplies inside.  You select a box take it back to your seat, make one or  more cards and then clean everything and return the supplies to the box and the box to the table.

My Paper Pumpkin subscribers get to make a bonus card – it’s an alternate idea using the stamps from the monthly kit.  This month my class was held before my kit arrived (actually my kit arrived the day of class) so I had a second idea for the August kit.

If you live local I hope you can join me!

Birthday Stamp a Stack

Last weekend I held a Birthday Stamp a Stack class it was lots of fun and everyone left with a stack of birthday cards ready to mail out.

There were three card designs using the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  Everyone made 4 of each of the cards.  We embellished the cards with Bakers Twine, Linen Thread and Gold Glimmer paper.

I also showed everyone an idea for decorating the Gold Card Tin that you can get free during Sale-A-Bration.  I included the die cuts and paper for them to use on their own tins.

 

Here is a suggested list of items you could order to complete this project and get the Tin for free.

  • Balloon Adventures stamp set #142823 $26  (or get the bundle with the dies which is $53)
  • Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack #142744 $10
  • Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609 $18
  • Card Tine #143833 FREE

Everyone at the class also received a little treat from me.  Here is the whole ensemble showing just one of each card.
