Vintage Snowflakes

I love the look of this card and so did ost of the girls at clas the other night.
The base of the card is Natural Ivery with a layer of Cherry Cobber, Early Espresso and the top layer is again Natural Ivory. I stamped the Christmas Wishes from the Ornamental Pines stamp set with Early Espresso ink. Then I cut out the snowflake using a thinlit from the Snowflake Card Thinlit Dies. I put a layer of Cherry Cobbler behind the snowflake opening. Last I added a strip of Under the Tree designer paper to a strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhered to the front of the card.

Etch-a-Sketch White Christmas

My sister,Tina, did an Etch-a-Sketch card a couple months ago and I loved it.  I saw this version of it on Pinterest and decided it was finally time to do one in class.

White Christmas Etch-a-SketchThe card base is Real Red.  I cut the square out using the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits — it gives nice rounded corners for our Etch-a-Sketch.  I used Smoky Slate for the inside and stamped it with the White Christmas stamp set.  I know a real etch-a-sketch doesn't have colors but I just had to add the little Merry Christmas banner in Real Red ink.  It just made it pop a bit.  Last I added the drawing knobs — 1" circles of Whisper White cardstock raised up with a dimensional.

Give this card a try — it is lots of fun and brings back lots of childhood memories.

Snowman’s Warmest Wishes

Mr. Snowman is wishing you the Warmest Wishes!!!

Snowman Warmest WishesThis was one of the cards we made at last night's Fast & Fabulous Class. 
The cardbase is Cherry Cobbler.  Then I added a layer of Island Indigo cardstock that was embossed using the Northern Flurry embossing folder.  I stamped the Warmest Wishes image from the Christmas Bliss stamp set.  The snowman head is cut from Whisper White cardstock using the Circle Collections Thinlit.  I added eyes and a nose.  Last, but not least I added the scarf because no snowman can be without a scarf during these frigid days.

Last night's class reminded me of why I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator over 10 1/2 years ago.  I love holding stamp classes and watching everyone's excitement.

This class had two new ladies that have never stamped before.  It was a mother & daughter team.  Kathy, the mom, kept saying I'm not creative and can't do crafty things.  It was so fun to watch her excitement at each card table.  She squealed out loud many times during the evening — love it!!!

Check out the smiles on their faces while holding their favorite card of the night.  I just LOVE this!

So share your love of stamping with a friend that "can't be creative" and help me share the joy of stamping.

"BEE" CREATIVE!!!  That's my motto.
