I forgot to post something on Sunday – ran out of time – if you are looking for Bingo the next piece is at the bottom of this post.
Last month I had a Holiday Stamp-a-Stack class. I had four cards that were fairly quick and easy to replicate and everyone that came to the class made four of each card plus coordinating envelopes. They left with a nice little stack of Christmas cards ready to send out to those that they love. I wanted to share those with you and here is the first one. We also made this at my card club meeting this past week and I demoed it at a workshop I had this weekend.
This card idea was one that I found last year from Cindy B. – I started keeping a file on my computer with ideas that I like and I have a folder by stamp set – so this was in my Dasher folder – to help me remember where I found the idea I try to put the name of the person or blog in my file name. So I don’t have a full last name for this one – it just said designed by Cindy B. on the watermark of the picture. I made a few changes from the original but the idea of the card is the same.
This is also a great idea for using up scraps of your designer series paper. For my card I used the Deck the Halls Designer Series paper – I had scraps left from other projects. I used a variety of circle punches to get all the circles from the scraps – the 2-1/2″ circle, 1-3/4″ circle, 1-3/8″ circle, 3/4″ circle and 1/2″ circle. The different circles are just layered on the edge of a piece of Very Vanilla card stock – and then trimmed what hangs over the edge.
Next to the circle I stamped Dasher in Soft Suede ink and underneath I stamped Merry Christmas – which is from the Christmas Greetings stamp set. Then I attached the Very Vanilla to a Soft Suede card base. The matching envelope has Dasher on it too.
If you want to add a bit of bling – use a 2-way glue pen on the antlers and where the snowflakes are mixed in then sprinkle with the Glass Glitter from the Holiday Mini catalog – shake off the excess. If you want something less chunky use the Dazzling Diamonds.
Let’s continue with Bingo….
Here we go with Monika’s Blog Bingo. This is Round 7! The group is full and all the cards were emailed out Monday 11/29. See this POST for more details on how to play and the previous winners and the players for this round.
I guess it is time for me to make my signature more wintery – I’ll have to work on that this week.
