Delightful Decorations class

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.

Are you mostly blogging over here now Sarah? I'll be back to see what you've been stamping then!

These are just beautiful Sarah :-) I love the colours and the dotty white cardstock.

Very elegant cards, I love the colour combo you've used for these two.
