Hi happy bloggers, well its that time of the year AGAIN and l cant believe that christmas is now just under 4 weeks away, l held my last card class for the year on friday , my class girls are so much fun, we always have a great day, l wanted to give them something , just to say thanks for the the support they have given me on my Stamp'in up venture and coming to my classes and also a little merry christmas thanks, most years now l make a gift of shortbread for close friends so l thought l'd give them a parcel of shortbread to, it looked a bit plain and boring when l put it into the clear bags, so l jazzed it up with a candy cane and ribbon and tag, sorry about all the calories girls, you can work it off after the silly season, so if any of my class girls are reading this, just another big THANKYOU to you all, lm blessed to have you all in my life and grateful for your friendship and the laughs we share around the table .Here is a pic of their gift.
Next l want to show you some of the cards we have made in class and also some workshop cards,
This card was made using the doiley set as ornaments which l embossed in white and just added a bit of bling in the centre.
This one l've used old and new stamps , a cute raindeer in the middle of the new embossed frame and paper from the letters to santa dsp and the post card stamp from winter post stamp set, the words are a bit hard to see ,so heres a bit more of a close up.
oopps, l dont think that pic is much better.
My camera work really is'nt that good this morning, sorry, this is another doiley ornament, with the white embossing, this tme l have used one of the new in colour cardstock called pool party, lm a bit over all the red and green for chrissy, and inked island indigo around the edge and if you look closer you can see l spritzed the background in island indigo as well.
Here l've used the top note die and ran it through the new stripes embossing folder and brushed on a bit of gold ink.
And the last 2 cards lve gone back to the pastels co;ours again and stamped and coloured with the markers, the second one lve used silver embossing powder to jazz it up a bit, well thats all from me today, lm hoping to get back and do a few more scrap pages before chrissy ,and then l have to start preparing for the family feast that is at my place this year,........yay....... no travelling............kate
