It's been a very busy week for me in my studio.  Lots of stamping and paper cutting getting ready for my classes this month.  It has been fun, but today I had to return to reality and clean my house.  Actually that was fun -- but only because it had been a week since I had done any wify duties. 

Today I'm posting the cards we will be doing tomorrow at my regular monthly class.  Out of all the cards I do, I have to say that my very favorite are Christmas cards.  Every year I say I'm not going to buy any new Christmas stamps -- but that never happens because Stampin' Up keeps making such awesome new stamps every year.  So this is what my ladies will be doing tomorrow:

This is my favorite card!!  I saw this somewhere (sorry I don't have a name  Update:  Design by Marie MEYER), and loved how the Tulle was added with the Word Window Punch.  I did change quite a few things, but ended up using this product:  Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set; Champagne Glimmer Paper; Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso Card Stock; Holiday Ornaments Framelits; Snow Flurry Bigz Die; Cherry Cobbler Tulle, Sanding Block, Dimensionals, and Word Punch.

This beautiful card is a CASE of a card Ronda Wade demonstrated at our last RubberQueen meeting.  I did change just a couple of things but stayed with her colors and layout.  Supplies used:  Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set; Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, and Whisper White Card Stock; Silver Glimmer Paper; Illuminate Pigment Ink; Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon (retired), and Basic Jewels Rhinestones.

This is a card I CASEd from Annette Sollner.  Supplies used:  Jolly Bingo Bits and Teeny Tiny Stamp Sets; Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper; Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, and Lucky Limeade Card Stock; Silver Glimmer Paper;  Snow Burst and Polka Dots Embossing Folders; Word Window, Modern Label, 1 3/8" Circle, and 1 1/4" & 1 3/4" Scallop Circles Punches; and Basic Jewels Rhinestones.

Another beautiful card in my favorite colors, using Stampin' Up product:  Greetings of the Season, Winter Memories, and Heart of Christmas Stamp Sets; Staz On Black, Island Indigo,and Baja Breeze Ink; Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla Card Stock; Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper; Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Gumball Green, Baja Breeze, and Basic Gray Markers; Apothecary Accents Framelits; Ovals #2 Bigz Die; Cherry Cobbler Ribbon; Brights Glimmer Brads; and Sponge.
Hope you like these as much as I do!!

Until next time,

  5. Hello !
    Je suis tombée sur votre blog par hasard et j'ai le plaisir de vous annoncer que la première carte est de moi. Je l'avais faite pour la Convention annuelle de Mayence en Allemagne et je suis très flatée qu'elle vous plaise. Cordialement
