Snowman Season Gift Card Holder - December Stamps & Treats Class and Upcoming Schedule

Happy December everyone!  Here is an adorable gift card holder that we are making at my Stamps & Treats Class this month featuring the Let It Snow Suite products.  It's super cute and fun!

For the front of my card, I used the Frosted Frames Dies to diecut two frame designs.  It's quick and very pretty too!  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set.

Here is the inside of my card showing a pocket that you can insert a gift card nicely.  I trimmed off 3/4" off the end and then punched out with a 1-1/4" Circle Punch for easy access.

Christmas Shadow Box & Class Announcement

Hello everyone!  I'm excited to share my new class project - Christmas Shadow Box!  It's so pretty and fun to make too!  And trust me....it looks a lot better in person!

After I made one with a rustic gray frame, I wanted to see how it would look with a white frame so here it is.  I am not sure which one I like better.....

Can you believe it starts with a sheet of Pretty Peacock Cardstock to create a beautiful background to make this shadow box?

Here is how I made it:
Using the foam brayer I applied Night of Navy ink to the top of Pretty Peacock Cardstock.  

Next, I used a sponge to add White Craft ink to soften the surface lightly.

Last I splattered some of the Frost White Shimmer Paint using an Aqua Painter and a tiny drop of rubbing alcohol.

Gathered Leaves Happy Thanksgiving Card - October Stamps & Treats Class

Hello Stampers!  Here is a beautiful fall card we will be making at my Stamps & Treats Class this month.  I'm loving this color combination - Cajun Craze and Merry Merlot!  So pretty!!!

These leaves are cut out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  Did you know you can add subtle detail to your die cuts by spritzing your cardstock with water before cutting?  This results in a tone-on-tone color and creates a deeper imprint.  It's so cool!

How about this idea of die cutting your card front using the leaf dies and adhere a piece of designer series paper in the back so that you can see pretty patterned paper through the die cuts?  So clever!  And the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper used to make this card was a perfect choice for that!  This designer series paper is amazing!  It's packed with awesome patterns in beautiful colors.  It's so versatile and you can use it for any occasion.
