Christmas in August Class

Here's a snap shot of the cards we made on Sunday August 26th at my Christmas in August Card Class.

We had a lovely 4 hours of creative fun trying new techniques (Herringbone) and playing with the new Ornament Keepsake stamp set and framelit die bundle.  Oh and did I say there was lots of laughing!

I'll be repeating this class in September so if you're interested in participating let me know.  Cost is $20.00 however fee is waived when a minimum order of $25.00 is placed at the class.

I also have Holiday Catalogues on hand so if you are looking for new ideas, would like to host a party or workshop or just simply want to have a catalogue contact me for more information.

Love these Button Buddy Snowmen and the Mixed Medley Hostess Set.  Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green card stock were used along with Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper.  A little touch of Silver Glimmer paper adds some sparkle to this card. 
Here's a closeup of the little Medallion made with the Mixed Medley Hostess Set.  Basic Rhinestones gives it a bit of bling and the Gumball Green 3/8" Stritched Satin Ribbon adds to the fun.  The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

This wonderful crazy quilt pattern called the "Herringbone Design", really livens up this Christmas card.  It was fun to make and everyone was dying to try it again with different DSP.  This one is made with the 4 different patterns from the Be of Good Cheer Designer Paper Series.  An ornament from the Ornament Keepsakes Bundle was used for the centre focal point in this card and some of the red glimmer cardstock adds some pizzazz.   

This card is a remake of the one I did for the Vernon Girls Night Out party a few weeks ago.  The only differences are that the small sheet of Glossy White cardstock has been embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder and a larger ribbon was used for the ornament. 
Our Ornament Keepsake card was a lot of fun to make. The card base is Pacific Point and a layer of Tempting Turquoise followed by a Whisper White layer that's been embossed using the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder.  It's so beautiful and this picture just doesn't capture the depth of the embossing.  The ornament was coloured with markers.  I used Basic Gray for the ornament cap, Tempting Turquoise for the base colour and Pacific Point was rolled around the ornament edges.   Basic Rhinestones were added at the base on each of the sides of the ornament and at the top of the cap.    

I discovered later in the day that I had a big finger print on the lens of my camera........duh, no wonder everything kept blurring.  So, apologies for this little blurred out shot of Ethel DeTemple and Sheri Lee with their versions of the Snowman cards.   What a fun time we had!

Remember I will be holding this class again in September so please check out my Event Calendar and register to attend.  It's a great way to start getting ready for the card season ahead! 

Happy Stamping!
