October Card Class

Yesterday we had card class and these are the cards and little gift item we created.  All of these projects are very easy (yes even the red christmas card) and look great for Christmas.  I  had just received my new Northern Flurry Embossing Folder in my Stamp Club order and went a little crazy using it for 3 of the projects.

Our first card we simply embossed the white cardstock with the embossing folder, added some pearls and a little Shimmer Paint to highlight the embossed image, stamped our Christmas Sentiment and pop dotted onto our base card of Midnight Muse.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Inkpad - Midnight Muse, Stamp Set - More Merry Messages, Embossing Folder - Northern Flurry, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Pearls

Next we created a Chocolate Gift Holder using the Labels Framelits and embossing.  This one was measured to fit a small Mars Bar.   Tag created by stamping a saying from the Tags til Christmas Stamp Set and just the words cut out and then mounted onto cardstock punched with the Postage Stamp punch.

Supplies used:  Cardstock. Inkpad, Embossing Folder all as above, Labels Framelits, Postage Stamp Punch, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon, White Twine, Stamp Set - Tags til Christmas, Small piece DSP and hole punches 

This card was created by rolling the background with the music wheel, stamping the tree and reindeer in versamark ink and embossing in gold.  We then tore the edge of our card stock and added the other images and finally inked the edges and then the entire card front with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Ink.  Our sentiment was then stamped and lace ribbon added before adding the prepared piece to the front of a base card which had again been embossed with the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder (on my sample I added shimmer paint but wasn't too keen on the effect so we didn't do this).

This card would look really lovely using the beautiful Christmas Tree in the Christmas Lodge stamp set, but as I don't have this set I used the Lovely as a Tree set instead.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Inkpads - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Versamark, Embossing Folder - Northern Flurry, Stamp Sets - various images from Lovely as a Tree, More Merry Messages, Elements of Style, Joyous Celebration, Music Notes Wheel, Victoria Crochet Trim

Our final project.  This one has been around for a very long time.  Thought I would re-create it with some of the new colours, stamp sets and punches etc.

It is a little bit tricky getting your squares adhered together in the right order but once that is worked out - very easy.  Would also make a great table decoration or some of the girls thought nice hanging decorations.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Snow Festival DSP, Inkpads - Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi, Punches - Extra Large Oval, Decorative Label
