Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’ve been having a good week? I’m much better than I was last week and today I held my final Simply Stylish class of the year! This class is all about stamping and having fun, it’s not technical and it’s much more about everyone going home with a stock of cards they can use throughout the next month – so whilst there was Christmas, we also did other occasions that come in handy too. I’m going to share my class designs but make sure you scroll to the end for some news of an exciting Promotion starting Tuesday 25th November for 1 week only!
I have wanted to do a set of cards with the For the Birds stamps for a long time and they finally made an outing today. This is a great all occasions set as it covers birthdays, valentines / anniversary’s, missing you, thank you and Christmas. We didn’t use them all – so they will come out again at some point!
Here is I think my favourite card from the set – I love the Pumpkin Pie colours with Old Olive and using the Delicate Designs embossing folder to look like a lacy border.
This is the Christmas one, a penguin on skates, what’s not to love there? I think the Lucky Star embossing Folder and Star border punch really sets him off.
This was the final one of the For The Birds cards we did today – again this is for any occasion and we produced the different coloured image by using Write Markers directly on the stamp, but you could also use Momento and then colour in with Blendabilities, or Staz-on and colour in with Write Markers – so many options!
I was then going to stop with this card as my last card, which uses the Endless Wishes stampset and the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder – and the gorgeous stripped ribbon!
Such amazing colours for a really cool Christmas look.
But then I saw this amazing Snowman card & fell in love and knew my ladies would love him too – but I decided to change him up from the one I saw on Ronda Wade’s blog and use Blackberry Bliss and I think he pops! Such a clever idea to create his silhouette using punches – so he looks like he’s there, but really he’s not! So very snazzy and you have to love a Snowman! He doesn’t have to be just for Christmas, he could easily be for someone who has a December birthday – just don’t put any candles close by – he could melt!
