Nerang High School Craft Market

I shall be having a stall at the Nerang High School Art & Craft Market
next Saturday 30th November.  This is the school that my daughter attends so hope to
see quite a few familiar faces on the day out doing some Christmas shopping.

Looks like there are going to be lots of goodies to choose from.

November Christmas Card Class

These are the three cards we created in this month's Christmas card class.

I have seen so many beautiful cards created with this lovely Christmas stamp set.

I particularly wanted to try and create a card stamping the poinsettia on vellum and giving it some dimension.

I also embossed the background card stock to give it a bit more interest as well as lightly inking the edges.

Because it is necessary to stamp the poinsettia twice and cut the middle image out to pop up I also adhered the leftover pieces from cutting out underneath the flower to make it appear fuller.

I am so pleased with the results.  I think one of my favourite cards for this year.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Vellum, Inkpads - Crumb Cake (also used to ink around the edges), White Craft Ink with White Embossing Powder, Stamp Set - Joyful Christmas, Ribbon - Baked Brown Sugar In Colour, Embossing Folder - Northern Flurry

I must admit I really love the colours of Crisp White, Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green together.  They just say it is all about Christmas.  On this card I used the Hearts A Flutter stamp set to create the banner across the card.  First time I have used this set which I bought when it was 25% off.  Just love how versatile it is going to be.  I haven't bought the matching framelits as yet, but it was very easy to cut them out by hand.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Stamp Sets - Hearts a Flutter, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Festive Flurry, Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots, Punches - Word Window, Modern Label, Framelits - Festive Flurry, Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine (now retired) and gemstone

Another card in my favourite colours of Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green.  A very simple card using only the Wishing You stamp set.  I actually created this card for our team get together as it was necessary for everyone to provide a very simple make n take.  May be simple and use minimum supplies, but looks a million dollars.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Whisper White, Stamp Sets - Wishing You, Inkpads - Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Gemstone

Christmas Bon Bons using the Envelope Punch Board

We got to test out the new Envelope Punch Board (EPB) at our recent team get together.  Now of course it is great for making envelopes, but as usual, all the clever crafters out there have come up with so many different ways of using this nifty little tool.

Like, this cute little Christmas Bon Bon which we made on the night.   Now I had been umming and ahhing about whether I really needed one of these tools and I had almost convinced myself that I  could do without one.   Well after using it, and seeing some of the fabulous other ideas around, you can all guess what will be going on my next order. 

I have made a few of this little bon bons in previous years but used a template which needed a lot of cutting.  Oh my goodness, how much easier it is using the new EPB tool.  The sweet little flower on the front was created using the leftover punched out pieces from the main project.

November Stamp Club Projects

 Our two projects for this month's Stamp Club Workshop were based around using the gorgeous papers from the Season of Style Paper Stack Pack to create some little gift bags
which are always very handy at Christmas time.

Our first project we created this little gift pouch/bag using just one sheet of DSP from the Paper Stack.  We also decorated a small peg with some Washi Tape and a stamped image and added a magnet to the back  so that it can be re-used as a fridge magnet.

Our second project also used just one sheet of DSP from the Paper Stack.   I love decorating up these plain old brown carry bags.   They simply look stunning once you have added a bit of decoration to them.  I am also just loving these colours together.
