I was going through my camera roll and realized that I never posted my cards for November card classes! So, today I will just be posting once to get them shared in case you need some inspiration for some last minute card ideas. This first one is using the Snowy Friends stamp set and inks and card stock in Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macron and Basic Black.
This one is using Marina Mist, Whisper White and Sarhara Sand card stock. I ran the Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Holly Berries embossing Folder. I added a strip of Gold Glimmer paper across the front. I stamped out two of the Bells from the Seasonal Bells bundle in Marina Mist onto Marina Mist and punched them out using the coordinating punch. I stamped the sentiment in Early Expresso onto Crumb Cake and used the Bunch of Banners Framelits. I tied a piece of Linen Thread into a bow and adhered it onto the bells. I finished it off with Basic Pearls.
This one uses the longest running stamp set and most sold stamp set from Stampin'UP! Lovely As a Tree! I ran a piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder and then stamped the tree in Versa Mark onto Bermuda Bay card stock and then sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it. I wrapped a piece of Candy Cane Baker's Twine around it. I stamped the sentiment from Oh What Fun stamp set in Basic Black onto Real Red and punched out with the Large Oval Punch.
Here's that Cookie Cutter Bundle again! I just adore the little reindeer in this set. I made a girl one and a boy one. This was a simple card to say the least. I stamped the "splotch" with Tempting Turquoise ink from the stamp set You've Got This and then my FAVORITE stamp set in the book Wonderful Year in Basic Black over the top. I stamped both of the reindeer in Early Expresso ink onto Tip Top Taupe card stock and punched them out. I punched out a Real Red bow with the same punch and added a Basic Rhinestone.
This one made me order another pack of Warmth and Comfort DSP stack(which is 50% off WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or until December 31st!- $5.00!!!!) I cut out the trees using the Perfect Pines Framelits in three of the patterns from the paper stack. I added them a piece of Soft Sky that was put through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing folder. I stamped out the sentiment from Presents and Pinecones. I wrapped a piece of Thick Bakers Twine (Black) around it.
Today, I finished up baking, still need to frost cookies and continuing with wrapping gifts, cleaning and laundry. It's icy and the wind chills are supposed to dip to -40 overnight so it's a good weekend to stay in and get caught up! But first, a nap. Have a good weekend!
Hello Monday! Wow, we are now less than two weeks away from Christmas!!! What in the world? I had a workshop recently and starting in October, all of my workshops focus on Christmas packaging because I feel that if you truly love making things for Christmas, it's IMPORTANT to start EARLY! And here I sit, thinking of all the things that I have left to do, craftiness that is. I did, however, get my Christmas cards done and ready to send out for the first time in 3 years..:(
These cute little boxes are all made from the Gift Box Punch Board. They are 2 1/2x2 1/2x 21/2 size. VERY quick and easy!
The Reindeer one tidbits, I used Soft Suede for the box, Real Red card stock and 1" Circle Punch for the nose, and Whisper White and Basic Black and 1" and 3/4" Circle punches for the eyes and for the antlers- the Leaf Framelits in Chocolate Chip.
Snowman- Whisper White for the box, 1" Circle Punch, Basic Black card stock and Real Red Satin Ribbon.
Santa- Real Red card stock for the box, White and Basic Black for the front of his "coat", Silver Glimmer Paper for the belt buckle.
I sold plenty of box makers that weekend! Glad to know that I did my job!! :)
Well, I have a ton of things to get done today, so I better move away from the internet and use my time wisely!
Have a super Monday!
