October Create A Card Classes

This week I made the difficult decision to discontinue in-person card classes. Many factors were part of this decision, and high on that list are my health issues. I'm grateful to the wonderful ladies to hung in with me after Covid. I appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you! I will continue to be a demonstrator and am considering, at some point doing online classes. I'd love to hear if this is something that you would like to do. I would be via Zoom so I could see everyone's smiling faces.

So, since it was my last class we did a bonus card this month, so four cards instead of three. Two of the cards were from coordinating stamp sets, "Sweets & Treats" and "Classic Cloche". The "Sweets & Treats" card was simply stamping, coloring with Stampin' Blends and a little fussy cutting.

This is such a fun stamp set, not only for Christmas but also birthday or other celebrations. I love the plum cake with the little pieces of fruit peaking out. I also used the Holly Punch to accent the card and the little In Color Jewels as the berries for the holly. The little shaker shapes were also used as embellishments. The background layer is DSP from the Whimsy and Wonder Suite. Polished Pink is one of my favorite colors. Thank you to Marga Bultena for inspiring this idea.

This second coordinating card is the "Classic Cloche" stamp set and the coordinating Cloche dies. I also used the cloche shaker domes. I love this little peaceful church scene. I tried a few different colors and the stamp that fills in the trees also colors the steeple and the snow trim on the houses, so I went with Gray Granite. The little snowflake embellishments are retired. The background DSP is "Tidings of Christmas" from the Annual Catalog. This card was inspired by Melissa Faust.

The third card is made with the fun "Whimsy & Wonder" suite of products. I love this set! I actually had to use scraps from my DSP, because I've used so much of it and my order of it was backordered and arrived the afternoon of class. But who can tell it's using scraps.

I love the foiling on this DSP!!! The tree is die cut from the DSP with the coordinating "Christmas Tree" dies. It has a wonderful assortment of Christmas trees. I usually prefer the traditional colors of red and green for Christmas but this DSP has certainly converted me. The presents are fussy cut from the DSP.

I also used a retired embossing folder "Scripty" since I have yet gotten the Evergreen Forest embossing folder in the Annual Catalog. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the little stars that are a die included in this set. They are die cut from some silver foil paper. I'm going to die cut a bunch more and put them in a little condiment cup to have them handy for future use. This card was inspired by Rae Jean Communal.

This last card uses the "Peaceful Cabin" stamp set and coordinating "Cabin dies". I debated a long time about buying this. I loved it but had bought so many stamp sets and debated a long time. Until I got the October Paper Pumpkin kit, that coordinates with this stamp set. I love the 3D effect from die cutting the cabin and the trees separately and layering them. I CASE'd this card from Lee Ann Greff.

The little fox in this set is also die cut and is so darn cute. The DSP behind the cabin and trees is also from the Whimsy & Wonder suite. I added a couple of adhesive backed snowflakes. The stars from the Whimsy & Wonder suite would also be great here. The card base is Misty Moonlight. The cabin and trees are stamped with Smokey Slate. The die cut trees are Smokey Slate, Night of Navy and Basic White.

I hope you enjoyed these cards. I sure had fun making them.

Make sure to subscribe so you catch my future posts. I'll still be making cards, just not for classes at the moment.

Thank you for stopping in!
