Thank you to the ladies who attended my first Saturday class this morning - you all made two really stunning cards to be proud of!
We used two of Stampin' Up!'s new Christmas stamp sets - Delightful Decorations and Contempo Christmas - along with the matching Ornament punch and Serene Snowflakes stamps.
Here's the first card:
It's based on a similar card I spotted on Splitcoast Stampers here - this is a fabulous site for finding inspiration with Stampin' Up! stamp sets - definitely worth a look!
The colour scheme used is Baja Breeze (the base card), Silver (non-SU!), Soft Suede and Pretty in Pink. The flat-backed pearls and beads are from the sadly-retired Pretties Kit and the snowflakes background was stamped using Platinum Shimmer Paint.
Here's the second card we made:
Same colour scheme but a more retro style. The ornaments were stamped first in ink, then over-stamped with Champagne Shimmer Paint using the Stamp-a-Ma-Jig for accurate positioning. This gives the ornaments a subtle shimmer.
My next class is Scrapbooking Club - next Saturday from 10am til 12.30pm, where we'll be making a journal to review our year (so far!).
Next card-making class is on Friday 12th November - the format is 'Five for a Fiver' using the Tree Trimmings stamp set. If you'd like to book a place, don't hesitate to get in touch.
