Snowman Cards Class

This snowman couple is from Stampavie and although it is not a new one, it is still adorable.
I wanted to show how to use it in several different ways, using same stamped image. The first card is made with Frozen Tozen paper, from TaDa. The second one in plaid is from Pink Paislee, called Snowday. (It does have snowmen on the other side). The third card, in shades of blue, is a stamped & embossed card front, using Hero Arts background stamp, Dot Flower. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Stain Dabbers and Shimmer Spritz to make the colors of blue. (It was a technique I learned at CHA). The 4th card in pink was done with the Tim Holtz Distress Coredinations card stock and embossed with a folder, then sanded. Of course I used a variety of Spellbinders on each card, some Stampin' Up! and Mark's Finest Papers card stock. All of the images were colored with COPICs.
This 4 card class is on Saturday, Dec. 10th. at 10am . Cost is $17.00

Tags from one sheet

I have been making some tags (which could be added to cards or page), from a 12x12 paper called "Cards", by Paper Company. I took this photo with the paper in background. So far I have made 13 tags and there are many more pieces left to do. It did take about an hour to hand cut the sheet apart, since it was not in even strips to cut. They look vintage and are very traditional designs. The 12x12 sheet of paper is only .69 cents. You can't go wrong with that one.
Using different Spellbinders, I cut lots of the same general sizes of backgrounds. Then I added some gold leafing pen, chalk ink, stamped images or pearls and they each looked very different.
I hope Beverly Simmons and her extended family enjoy the "kits" I made, for them to be creative this Thanksgiving. What a nice family make something.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, and remember to
Make Time To Create!
