November Sketch class

 Today I'm sharing one of the cards from this months Sketch class.  It features the winter frost DSP and the silver foil paper from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday occasions mini.  It was fun doing the Rosettes on the score tool.  I scored the whole sheet of 12 x 12 at 1/4 inch intervals then cut the paper into strips an inch wide.  The foil sheet on the small panel is embossed with the delicate Designs Embossing folder that resembles snow flakes

Gently Falling Stamp SetGently Falling

Gently Falling
   We used this Two Step stamp set for this quick and easy card-we spiced it up by doing the thumping technique.  The solid images were inked in Crushed Curry then thumped with Cajan Craze the final step was to over stamp with Early Espresso.  We then sponged using the sponge to add dimension using all three colors,  add some ribbon and a sentiment Ta Da!

Autumn Accents Bigz Die
Autumn Accents Bigz Die 127812
Price: $21.95
Versatile fall leaves. Endless project ideas. Coordinates with the Wonderfall Stamp Set. Largest leaf: 3" x 3". Use with Big Shot machine and Standard Cutting Pads. (This item is a favorite from the 2012 holiday catalog.)

This is a note card size card to go with our Crumb Cake Note Card Size Envelopes.  The Base is Crumb Cake.  The Glitter Paper had an Adhesive sheet attached to them then I cut 1/4 inch strips that is what is attached to either side of the Tangerine Tango Card stock which was embossed with the oval shape from the Designer Frames (123130 ) Embossing Folders.  The sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set (130631).  The large leaf is on a dimentsional-there is not a adhesive sheet on that piece of Glitter Paper.  The small leaf was crumpled up and then sponged over the wrinkles-I think it was the favorite of the day for that class-what do you think!  Leave me a comment.

Festive Flurry Wreath Kit

   This is what I did with my Festive Flurry Kit-it comes with 10 Snowflakes- I used 9 of them to make this wreath.  I had a bunch of frames left over from last year's clothes pin project and I spray painted it with white matte.  I folded and glued all my snowflakes-I did mine the opposite fold from the video by Stampin' Up! and found it a little easier.  I also found using the lower setting on my glue gun to be faster the Silicone Craft mat 

we sell was a life saver made this go so quickly.  I laid the peices out and then glued them on one at a time to the edge of the frame then when they were all on I flipped it over and added a little more glue from the back.  If you would like to order the complete kit to make this wreath the cost is $25 includes shipping USA only,  frame painted for you, additional Ribbon and the Festive Flurry Kit -e-mail me at maw2map@me.com and I will send you a pay pal link if I still have kits available.
