September 2/5/15 cards

You saw a sneak peek of these cards a couple of weeks ago. Now let's take a closer look at each....

Our first Christmas card of the season! (Next month's class will be all Christmas cards!)

Stamps: Festival of Trees BUNDLE (includes stamps and matching punch) 
Found in Holiday catalog

Ink: Garden Green, Early Espresso, Real Red
Other: Gold Shimmer card stock, star from Itty Bitty Accents punch pack, Filigree Frame embossing folder.
( emboss folder in Holiday catalog)

Note: We inked up the whole tree in the Garden Green. Then, we removed the green ink from the tree trunk with a blender pen! Finally, we added a brown tree trunk with the Early Espresso marker.

This is sold as a clear photopolymer set. It will make lining up other set element,s like tree garland, really simple!

I can't believe that I've had this set sitting on my stamp room desk for over a month, and this is the first time I got to use it! 

I love it! (And, so did everyone else!)

It was made with the Flower Patch set and matching framelit

We only used one framelit for this card but there is actually a whole set that matches the stamps:
These two are available to purchase as a bundle so you don't have to buy one or the other. You won't want to do that, believe me!

Inks: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Wild Wasabi.

Note: This is sold only as a photopolymer set, making placement super easy with the totally clear stamps! Lining up the green stem for a second stamp, in order to make the flower stem longer, was so easy!

Although you can't see it in this picture, the rhinestone was colored with a Calypso Coral Blendabilities alcohol marker before adding it to the center of the flower - perfect color coordination!

Sold as a single wood stamp, Halloween Street, is a great purchase!

Card stock: Pacific Point, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango

Ink: Basic Black (dots were created with a number two pencil eraser!)

Other: Tangerine Tango two-tone trim, and Frosted Sequins (both in Holiday catalog)

This card is super fast and easy! I used a birthday greeting, but any can be used. Same goes for matching card stock and t"ink! (I used the retired color More Mustard)

Stamp set: Dotty Angles


Stamps: Seasonally Scattered (Holiday catalog)
Ink: Cajun Craze

Other: Needlepoint emboss folder (from Clearance Rack), Lost Lagoon satin stitched ribbon, flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack,  pearls

(emboss folder still available on clearance rack)

This was a great mixture of cards. Keep watching this blog, your email, Pinterest and Facebook for the announcement of the October 2/5/15 Christmas card class and "cards to go"!

If you bought the "cards to go" for this class, they are already in the mail and you should have them by the end of this week!
