Christmas in the Making 

Another Christmas in the Making card. The main colours are Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Whisper White. I used the Everyday Label Punch to cut out the sentiment, the DSP is Merry Little Christmas and its embellished with black rhinestones.


Tags Tags and more Tags 

Worked on some tags! Seriously these would make a fun class!!! What do you think? The wine bottle tag uses the Merry Patterns stamp set and the colours are Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red. The gift tags use the Sugarplum Dreams stamp set and two done in a more feminine look and three can be Masculine/neutral looking all are stamped using Basic Black archival ink on Whisper White with Stampin Write markers for colour. The third set of tags consists of a wine bottle tag with three gift tags featuring Merry Music Specialty DSP. They use a variety of stamps and dies but really with music there is so much to choose from. I think I might put some of these with some more ideas and create an October event.

Fairy Celebration an Eclectic card 

This is not new in the catalog this year but it’s new to me. I have wanted Fairy Celebration for quite some time. Just to coordinate it with the 2017-2018 catalog I used Naturally Eclectic DSP and my colour scheme loosely matches the colours in that particular DSP. You cannot know how excited I was to finally stamp and colour one of these fairies!!!!

Brightly Lit Christmas card

I’m just loving all the nostalgia in this particular holiday catalogue! I love this old fashioned lamppost!!! This is the Brightly Lit Christmas bundle and it is a part of the Christmas around the world suite. I only used the dies and stamps for my card along with the Merry Music Specialty DSP. I was trying to avoid the cliche of red and green for Christmas but it needed something extra so I added the wreath with red bow in. I guess a little green doesn’t harm anything!

Christmas in the Making card class card 4

And Finally card 4 of 4 for my Christmas in the making card class event. This one is made with the title set for this event. Christmas in the Making stamp set. The details of the event are on the event posts or you can message me for more information. The class is completely doable for a beginner and can still be fun for the more experienced stamper. This one reminds me of Christmas as a child. Even though we weren’t going anywhere we still dressed up for the occasion.

Night in Bethlehem with lots of purple card. 

This is a beautiful bundle Night in Bethlehem! I used 3 purple card stock colours Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant, as well as champaign foil. There is So Saffron Ink sponged lightly on the background and the Sentiment was stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink. I’m thinking of offering a more advanced class for people who are not beginners at stamping and would be interested. If you wish to attend an advanced techniques class please comment I can accommodate you. Thanks!
