Christmas Tree Punch

Finally got to use my Christmas tree punch. Made a card for a very good friend and exchanged gifts. A little bit of SU and a bit of Lawn Fawn

Used a bunch of scraps to make the trees. Smudged the sentiment a bit though.

It's a Bo Bunny Christmas

Came across some fab paper by Bo Bunny and did a stamp a stack. We actually didn't do any stamping except on the inside of the cards but sharing the finished cards.

The pictures don't do them any justice but they are fab in person. Fun too!

Santa's Coming!

A couple weeks have passed since my last post. I am nursing a cold I caught which started on Friday and knocked me down over the weekend. I saw daylight for about 3 hrs on Sunday! 
A while ago at Scrapfest, I made a Santa tag and then we did it again in class but I wanted to put it on the front of a card but then I thought, what a waste! So I designed one with a small envelope so it could sit in on the front of the card. It doesn't open. The tag can be 're-used'. Saturday at our bazaar I sold quite a few and one customer was going to use the tags as bookmarks. At least that's what she was going to tell the kids she was giving them to. I thought that was a fab idea and if I make more, I will make them longer just for that reason.

Even left a space to sign the tag or could leave it blank.
The back of the card can be signed.

Thanks for looking!

Our latest creations the ladies made in class Monday morning. Inspiration from Kim Costello's sorry card, I changed it up to become a Christmas card and added glitter. Everything is better with glitter. Can't get enough on Christmas cards...well, less is more!

We also made some reindeer from card stock taken from a pattern I had made years ago when I was working with wood. Made from really heavy card stock.

Love em!

Blogging with the IPad!

Oh my gosh. I just posted the last two entries using my IPad. I can't believe I did it.
I don't think I'm a complete boob when it comes to some computer stuff but this is great knowing how to do this. When I take a picture I don't have to go to my computer now and transfer my pics and etc. oh, this is too good. Hopefully I can keep everyone up to date finally through the blog and keep up to date myself!

Happy Birthday Mikey!

Made a Bday card for my nephews son turned 18 yrs. Very 1950's looking to me.
One of our class techniques in the spring - ombré effect.

Put a Mask on it!

Went back to some basics with masking as well as using masking tape to create a great background for single layer cards. However, I goofed on one of the cards and ended up trimming it and mounting it on a base card. These were the cards I demoed in last weeks class.

Love the simplicity of these cards

Thanks for looking
Til next time, Happy Stampin'

Starburst and Sunshine

Hello all,
Happy New Year! A new start, fresh...boy has it been fresh and COLD.BRRRRR!
We've started classes again and now are running each Tuesday evening starting at 7pm. Want to share some starburst or sunburst cards that we started off with this year.  Very easy to make once you know how to do the technique.  Slightly more difficult for a beginner knowing zip.
Enjoy and stop by again.

This last card was made for my neice who purchased her own home about four months ago and finally had an open house on the weekend.  Inside it says "There's no place like GNOME"
I just thought it was so stinkin' cute and I thought of it all by my lonesome.  She is a single mom with two girls.  The youngest one loves blue, hence the blue outfit.
