Christmas Card class

Here are a few more photos of the projects that we made at our Christmas in July class last night.

For this first card we used a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! called To You & Yours. It was sold last year during the holidays. We used the Poppin' Pastels Technique for the pretty blue dove. If you have never done that before, you just stamp your image in
Versamark ink, and then using a sponge dauber, cover it with the chalk color of your choice. It is a great way to use your Stampin' Up! Pastels!

We also used the eyelete border punch along the one side of our cardstock before adding the ribbon for another pretty little touch.

Our next card was a simple no layer card. It only uses one 1/2 sheet of Whisper White cardstock! I love these simple cards!
We stamped the image from the stamp set called Home for Christmas which is available in the new Stampin' Up! catalog! It was stamped with Brown Stazon ink, and then colored in in a few places with Stampin' Up! markers. Each girl colored theirs a little differently, so they all came out different! I love that! We used some new In-Color Ribbon - Soft Suede - I really like the polka dots on it~
Each girl that came last night also got their very own copy of the new Idea Book & Catalog included in their class fees! It is just full of terrific cards, scrapbook pages, and project ideas!! If you would like your own copy, just let me know, and I'll get one to you!
