CARD CLASSES - December 17, 2015

The week of December 13th, we had a wonderful, beautiful snow which caused me to cancel the two card classes which were to be held on Dec. 15, 2015.  The gals were awesome and all were able to reschedule to Thursday, Dec. 17 with the exception of one.  So, I had six students for the AM Class and 5 for the PM Class.  

The card in the lower left (Birthday Fishes) is a sneak peak of a new release by Two Paper Divas.  What is hidden behind the tied off doors is so cute.  Stay tuned to my BLOG for the reveal in early January, 2016.  

MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL of my Card Making Friends.  May your Holidays be just the best!!!

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - A String of Valentines!

I could not resist doing another card with one of the December release TWO PAPER DIVAS's stamp sets.  Love this one Melissa and Gayla.  Soooooo sweet!!!

I backed the "happy" die (from W Plus 9) with the Red Foil paper from Stampin'Up.  Then using the piece from the die cut, I offset it on the card.

STAMPS:   Two Paper Divas - "String of Hearts" & "Simple Phrases"

CARDSTOCK & PAPER:  Bazzill - Marshmallow &  "Love Letters" from Gina K. Designs

Enjoy your Holidays!!!

TWO PAPER DIVAS Design Team Card - Bubble Gum Day!!

Love, Love, Love the "New" Two Paper Divas December stamp release which just came out on Saturday (5th).  I have used two sets of this release on this card.  You can see below which sets. Although I do not chew gum anymore (???), do you not remember as a child how fun these machines were!!!!  Saved those pennies or was it a nickel??

STAMPS:  Two Paper Divas -  "I Chews You" set and the single word on the layered
paper from the set "Large Conversation Heart".                  

PAPER:  Bazzill - Easter Green;  Essentials by Ellen - Woodgrain Embossed White Cardstock; 110   lb. wt. Neenah Solar White for the top layer.

RIBBON:  Hug Snug White Seam Binding.

Wink of Stella - Clear

INK:   Memento:  Grape Jelly, Bahama Blue, Lilac Posies and Bamboo Leaves.

For the ribbon, I used 4 different clean pencil erasers and stamped them into the 4 inks and then stamped it on the seam binding.  Just like in all design, repeating the ink color on the ribbon, gum balls and the word "Sweet" on the background, it will give the continuity needed on the card.

Happy Stamping!!!
