All-Occasion Card Class/Club - Wednesday, November 14

Here are the cards we made last week at the All-Occasion Card Class on Wednesday, November 14 at 7pm!!  I had so much fun with these cards!!  I think all the gals that came to class and club did, too!!

This first card features the Ornament Keepsakes Bundle (stamp set and framelits) from the Holiday Catalog.  I love how the smaller ornaments fit perfectly over and coordinate so well with the larger ornaments!  We used the color combination of Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green for this card and added some Rhinestones to make the card sparkle.  We stamped "Merry" from the Snowflake Soiree stamp set - the perfect touch!  Thank you to Melissa Stout for this beautiful card idea on Stampin' Connection!

I knew I'd have to do this fun card featuring the Friendship Preserves Bundle when I saw it in the Holiday Catalog!!  We start with an Island Indigo card base (this will always be one of my favorite colors!) and added a layer of the Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock (sanded with the new Stampin' Sanding Block) behind the Orchard Harvest DSP (both trimmed into a "flag").  We stamped "Thanks" using the Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo markers and paper-pierced the larger Lucky Limeade layer with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack.

This is how Stampin' Up describes this card stock in the catalog:  Use 80 lb. sandable card stock to create an antiqued, distressed, color-popping look. Outside layers are exclusive Stampin' Up! colors--one side textured, one side smooth. Inside layer is a monochromatic color. Reveal inside layer by sanding, tearing, or distressing. 12 sheets; 12" x 12"; acid- and lignin-free. Use with Stampin' Sanding System and Core'dinations Dust Buddy.  I couldn't have said it better myself!

This next card is just gorgeous!!  Thank you to Mary Fish for this elegant card idea!!  We start with a crisp Whisper White card base and add a layer of Brushed Gold paper.  The snowflakes (from the Snowflake Soiree stamp set) are embossed using the Versamark ink pad and gold embossing powder.  The finishing touches are the Vintage Faceted button (on the big snowflake) and the Very Vanilla Seam-Binding bow!

Guess what!!!  I actually designed this card all on my own!!  Of course, I took some inspiration from other cards on Stampin Connection, but I think I can call this my own!!  I love this Open Sleigh Stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  The sentiment that we stamped on the inside of the cards reads: "It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."  Isn't that the perfect sentiment?? 
For this card, we start with an Early Espresso card base and add a layer of the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper, then we added two layers (cut with the Labels Collection Framelits) in Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock (embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impression Embossing Folder) and Very Vanilla.  That beautiful sleigh is also part of the Open Sleigh stamp set.  The finishing touch here is the 5/8" Victoria Crochet Trim tied beautifully around the card!
