Christmas Card Stamp Class…

A Blessed Christmas To You Season's Greetings

On Thursday night I was part of a ladies night out “private function” (11 ladies) at Michaels with Christina.

They created 12 Christmas cards, 3 each of 4 designs. These were the 2 that I created.

It was definitely a learning curve!

BTW 12 cards in LESS than 2 hours was a little ambitious!

Inspiration was found on Pinterest.

Thinking of you…

Thinking of You card

Sadly, I had to make a Thinking of You card for a wonderful co-worker friend of mine that lost a loved one this week.

It’s hard to see on the card but, I also stamped rather peacock feathers than embossed them with white embossing powder and than sponged a bit of neon yellow ink over the feathers so it would resist the ink.

The card is actually much prettier in person. 6×6 card and I made an overside envelope also.

Snow Bears card

In September I went to a Christmas stamped card class at Michaels instructed by Christina.

It was a basic stamping card class because Christina wasn’t sure how much stamping the other’s had done before.

Although Christina was NOT overally impressed with her cards and she had limited resources because everything used has to be from Michaels…I thought they were cute! AND I have 4 more Christmas cards added to my collection for mailing this year.

In August I went to Jen Reynard’s house to participate in her Close To My Heart workshop.

We made 3 gorgeous cards and a 12×12 layout.

I love Jen’s work. She hosts regular workshops. If you ever want to join us let me know!!!

I made these cute, quilted tea bag holders for my Steeped Tea party yesterday as a Thank You for coming to my tea party!

I poured enough Steeped Tea into a bag to make one cup of tea and try the Irish Breakfast Black Tea.
