Card Class - November 9, 2011

Here are the fabulous cards we made at class last night! 

I can't get enough of the beautiful Spice Cake Designer Series Paper in the Holiday Mini.  It's featured here on the leaves and in the Thank you/pumpkin card below.  We also used the new Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Hand-Penned Holidays Stamp set from the Holiday Mini.  What fun!

I saw this next card on the blog,, a few months ago and have been wanting to try it out. It is a bit labor-intensive (coloring the leaf stamp from the Warmest of Wishes Hostess Stamp from the Holiday Mini and cutting the Rectangle Designer Frames Embossing folder image), but I think it was worth it!  What do you think??   We also used the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing folder, a Rich Razzleberry Flower brad, and a bit of Pocketful of Posies DSP.  These bright, fun colors are awesome to work with (especially on the dreary winter days we've had here lately in Michigan!).

What a contrast....  This next card also uses the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing folder, but has a much more muted color pallete. I love it just as much though!!  I really enjoyed using the Victoria 5/8" Crochet trim on this card - I didn't think I needed this ribbon, but have really grown to like it!  The pumpkin is made with three large oval punches - I love getting more than one use out of my punch!

This last card is super simple.  In fact, I demonstrated it at a party I did about a month ago.  I bought this stamp set (Day of Gratitude) last year in the holiday mini and was thrilled to see it made it to this year's Idea Book and Catalog so that I could pull it back out again!  The card features some traditional fall colors - More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso, along with the 1/4" Early Espresso grograin ribbon.  The sentiment, "Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings", is perfect this time (or any time!) of year!

Card-making classes are always held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.  My next card-making class will be held on Wednesday, December 14 at 7pm in my new location downtown Alma, 127 E. Superior St.  Come join us for a fabulous night of card-making!  Just email me at if you'd like to join in the fun!
