Christmas card Class

It's that time of year again !  Christmas is coming fast and furious.
Had a class this past sunday - some of the gyrls have done a fair amount of stamping before...
some not at all - But....
It was a fun time had by all....so much concentration.

We did four cards.....so over the next week or so will present the cards we did....

Here is a few pictures from the class and one of the cards we made.

Check out the concentration these ladies are exhibiting LOL

This card was done with a technique called reverse masking.

The Santa stamp used is from Sassy Silhouettes.... the saying from Impression Obsession.

Also used Distress inks - Fired Brick and Festive Berries - and of course my fav...Staz on Black.

If you have peeked in here you saw the one a couple of weeks ago that I made for my other half.
Well of course there is another half to that couple.....so have used it for a birthday card for one of the girls I work with.

Same style of card - gatefold.

Halloween card

Don't make Halloween cards much any more - the kids are all growed up.....

This I made for the second half of October for the KCUK challange which, of course , has the halloween theme. LOL

Also this is going into the challenge for Fashionable Stamping - which has an 'anything goes' theme this month.  Check it out - you may win some rubber !!!


Now thinking - this card will head south to an Old friend I have not seen for years - but we exchange letters.  She can't make cards much anymore,, but really likes to get them !!!

Christmas Card Published

Yippee skippee.....Just got my Stampers Sampler for Oct/Nov/Dec 2014 and on page 60
I had one of my cards published.

I used, my favourite company, Stampsmith photo stamp.   Using lots of lace and ribbon to embellish the card.  The verse I cut out and covered with clear embossing powder.

The first part of October for our KCUK group is a fantasy challenge.  Well you know I can't put on here what my real fantasy is hahahahahahaaa....

So I have chosen fairies....here are the two I made .

This first one I used the cut out I got from my good friend Dot.  Placed the white image onto shiney paper.  The saying in the middle is from Artful Stamper. A bit of bling in the middle too...not sure if you can see that.   Used my punch to decorate the bottom - and then all mounted onto white card stock....and a wide ribbon to finish it off.

The dandelion stamp is from Stamp It / fairy from Sheena and the saying from Invoke.
Using my distress inks for this...Plus I spritzed the dandelion with water to restamp.

Again - luvin my butterfly punch !!!

September Challenge

The challenge with my Eclectic paper artist group was to make something with the bird stickers.  I have chosen to make tags.

The tag is covered with Washi adhesive sheet....and the saying is from a set I have from Stampattack.
