Here is the first card from my new class. These cards will be good for Valentine's Day, anniversary or just because you love someone. There will be four cards in this class. The stamps for this card are from Crafty Secrets and Basic Grey. I used fired brick distress ink and red magic versa magic ink. I coloured the rhinestones with R89. I also used the Venus embossing folder from craft concepts for the red card stock and the patterned paper is best creations Sweet Love. It is from a few years ago.

The paper is from the Bo Bunny "Midnight Frost" line. I edged the dark blue papers with brilliance starlite silver ink and for the light blue papers I used versa magic night sky ink. I stamped the snowflakes on the middle piece with broken china and chipped sapphire distress ink. I cut the shapes out with spellbinders petite scalloped circles and labels one. I also highlighted some of the snowflakes with a sakura clear stardust pen.

For the this one I used Spellbinders Labels Two to cut out the shapes. The paper is from the Bo Bunny "Midnight Frost" line. I edged the dark blue papers with brilliance starlite silver ink and for the light blue papers I used versa magic night sky ink. I created the snowflake border on the middle piece using distress ink tumbled glass and broken china and 2 different stamps. I cut out the stars on the cricut using George cartridge and popped 1 up with 3d dots. I also used a sakura clear stardust pen to highlight the snowflakes I stamped.

For this card I used more paper from the Fancy Pants "Saint Nick" line. The poinsettia stamp is from Stampin' Up set Bells & Boughs and the Merry Christmas stamp is from the set I bought at Michael's (I lost the package and don't know the name of the set, sorry!). I cut the tag shape out on the cricut and stamped the greeting with aged mahogany distress ink. I stamped the poinsettia with black memento ink and then used an aqua brush and distress inks (aged mahogany, shabby shutters & peeled paint) to paint the image. I coloured the pearls with copic marker R89. I edged the patterned paper and greeting with versa magic red brick ink.

The paper is from the Fancy Pants "Saint Nick" line. The snowman was cut out using the cricut doodlecharms cartridge and covered with white fun flock. I used micro beads for his buttons. The greeting stamp is from Bombshell and stamped with vintage mahogany. I popped the snowman up with 3d foam dots and added some rhinestones by kaiser crafts.
Have a great weekend everyone.

I really wanted to try another card with some different colours for Christmas. I love the Colourful Christmas line from My Mind's Eye. I'm not sure what year this is from but it's a couple of years old I think. The image stamp is a wood mounted stamp by inkadinkado and the greeting stamp is from Stampin' Up. I stamped the image and cut it out with spellbinders small labels and the mat for it using large labels. I coloured the image with copic markers (YG25, YR07, E25, BG10 & N1). I used tangelo Memento ink for the greeting and I edged the image and greeting with versa magic tea leaves. I coloured the rhinestones with YG25 & YR07.

I stamped the image on a cosmo cricket patterned paper from a couple of years ago. I wanted to add a little bit of colour so I used copic markers R20 & YG93 on the poinsettias and used a glaze pen on the berries. I used another poinsettia stamp and some pumice stone distress ink to add a little detail to the edges. I used another piece of cosmo cricket paper for the background and edged both pieces with vintage photo distress ink. The rhinestones are from kaiser craft.

While I had this stamp and die set out last week I cut out a bunch of reindeer and trees. I used up scraps of Kaiser, Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket papers for the tree's and reindeer sweaters. I couldn't resist making another one of these snow scene cards. I coloured the reindeer in with copic E25 and paper pieced the sweater. I stamped the greeting with Tim Holtz distress ink broken china. The background paper is from Basic Grey. I popped the reindeer up with 3d dots and edged the trees with cloud white versa magic ink.

I distressed the edges of the image and used versa magic night sky on the edges and I used brilliance galaxy gold ink on the edges of the bo bunny paper. I coloured the rhinestones with copic marker B97.

I used Webster's Pages "waiting for Santa" line for this card. I cut the flowers from one side of a patterned paper. I then covered the image with versa mark and then clear detail embossing powder and heat set it and attached with 3d dots. The greeting stamp is from Stampin' Up and I stamped it with aged mahogany distress ink. Other inks used are antique linen distress ink, sage & red brick versa magic ink.

Anyway on to my challenge from the last post. I need to post a completed project that uses some patterned paper twice a week. I took a look at all the Christmas paper I have and realized I really need to use some of it up. It was impossible to take a picture to show just how much I have but I tried.

Well that's it for tonight, I'm going to go watch the series premier of "Once Upon A Time" on line. I can't believe I missed it last week. That's how busy I've been! I did manage to remember to watch "Grimm" tonight. I've been waiting months to see these shows. Well I'll be back in a few days with a new project and post. Thanks for visiting my blog and until next time, happy crafting everyone!

One other thing my wonderful hubby got me is another marker rack for my desk, so I could organize things a bit better. I love the new set up and everything is much easier to find now.

I finally finished the samples for my Christmas card class. I must say it is really hard to design Christmas cards when it is 90 degrees in my studio and I'd rather be at the beach LOL. The first card I made determined the name for this class. I have made this design before and people loved it, so I decided to use this as a class card. It is very simple yet elegant. I used gold embossing powder on gold metallic paper. Also a very quick and easy card.
