Another Christmas Share

Here is a card I did that was prompted by a tutorial on Dawn's Blog I am determined to make cards from generic sets. Of course when the new catty comes out, I am sure there will be new Christmas sets that I will just HAVE to have.
Thanx for looking and have a wonderful evening.

Christmas Brocade Basic

Here is a card I did yesterday. A challenge to me is trying to make a card like this Christmas from a set that is generic, sometimes it is mind boggling for me, but I sure like this one. I took the brads and heated them, then dipped them into iridescent ice embossing powder to give them the sugar coated look and a bit of sparkle.

WallHanging Calendar

This is my hanging calendar made completely with Stmapin Up Products. I had alot of fun creating this one. If you are interested in the files for this, watch my blog as I am creating a tutorial and files which you will be able to purchase for 9.95.

This page goes on the back of the pocket pages and it says Birthdays Anniversaries and Reminders which is great for keeping track of alot of different events

This shows the calendar opened up in hanging position. the gridded calendar has a pocket at the bottom to hold those bills as they come in so they don't get lost in the shuffle of everyday life. This calendar was made from the 6x6 tablets that Stampin up has had out both last season to be purchased for 9.99 or as a hostess gift. But you can also have a class with these getting 4 calendars from one Pkg of DSP paper, so watch for my posting of the files being ready. It will take paypal to purchase these.

Happy Holiday Quickie

Here is one using Lovely as a Tree that is another quick card and elegant looking. One thing I do is when making cards, I use sizes that will fit into stampin up's envelopes so I have a source that I can get as many as I can whenever I want. This cardstock is 6-1/2 x 6-1/2, scored and folded at 6 3/8, then I took a piece of wild wassabi 6-1/2 x 3 1/4 and put it on the inside making the green go down the outside of the card. Using the Lovely as a tree stamp, stamped the tree in the center more towards the top, using glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter, highlighting the branches. Then with Many Merry Messages, stamped Happy Holidays under the tree and with Wild Wassabi striped ribbon on the side, Just love this. I know wild Wassabi will be retiring in August, so guess I need to stock up on it so I can make more of these for my cards.

Fresh Cut Christmas

Here a class I did on July 4th. They used their own stamps and notes then I charged 10.00 for the class and provided everything else. We started with the bag so as they were made they had a place to put them.

Some of these were cased from various blogs, great cards.

Just love the way this one came out, will make great Christmas cards and less than 5 minutes
