Hehe oops

I uploaded these cards and never finished my post. oops. Thankfully it was still in the drafts.
Here are a variety of cards with the same basic ingredients.
I used my petals a plenty embossing folder but only embossed the on the outside of the oval. How did I do that you wonder? Find out at my big shot class this Saturday, December 4th at 1pm. Cost is $5. Email me if you are interested.
Okay this first card is made using the Wish for Peace set, Early Espresso ink, ribbon and cs. Quick, easy and looks very nice IRL.
This card uses To You and Yours stamp set, Early Espresso ink, ribbon and cs, and dazzling diamonds.
Again, quick, easy and very nice.
For this card I used To You and Yours stamp set again (wish it wasn't retired, I can't part with it), Rich Razzleberry ink and cs, grey ribbon.
I took a closer pic so you could kinda see the glitter. Love these colors together.
Not totally happy with this last card. It was fine until I colored the berries. Now I need to decide if I should color the rest, ah, we'll see. Soft Suede cs, ink and ribbon and Christmas Cardinal stamp set.

I almost forgot to mention, I used the smooch peralized top coat on the embossed petals. Very shimmery touch to the cards, just can't really see it in the photos.

Thanks for stopping by!

okay okay

I'll share the cards we made at my Christmas card class. I've recieved a few emails regarding my lack of motivation for updating this old blog. Sorry. I have more Christmas cards I've made in the last few days that I'll share later. (don't wanna overdo my posting ;) )
This first card you'll have to tilt your computer, or your head. I tried everything to get it to stay upright but it refuses.
Ingredients: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Soft Suede cs, Early Espresso ink, Vicotria crochet trim, lattice embossing folder, dazzling diamonds and A Wish for Peace stamp set.
The first class I did, we used the smooch top coat on the tree/church snow tops, for the 2nd class we did dazzling diamonds. Two different but kinda the same looks.
This card is 5.25 x 5.25. A fun size.
Ingredients: Candy Cane pp, Real Red, Whisper White, Baja Breeze cs, Baja Breeze ink, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, texture plate, silver shimmer brad (I think this picture is the one I used a rhinestone instead).
This one was super easy. And I think my favorite.
Ingredients: Cherry Cobbler cs, ink and seam binding, Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Flurry EF, rhinestones and All Holidays stamp set.
This was another favorite with the girls.
Ingredients: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake cs, Early Espresso ink, Deck the Halls pp, Victoria crochet trim, vintage brad, dazzling diamonds and To You and Yours stamp set.
This next card was very hard for me. I'm not into the cutesy thing or bright colors. I don't think it turned out too bad.
Ingredients: Garden Green, Real Read, Whisper White cs, Candy Cane pp, Gold (some had silver) shimmer brad and I'm not sure where the "Happy Holidays" is from.
This card is also one of my favorites but was labour intensive. (sorry girls lol)
Ingredients: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla cs, Deck the Halls pp, Cherry Cobbler seam binding (that stuff was just too cool), Eyelet border punch, ticket corner punch, Deck the Halls button, linen thread, glass glitter (this glitter tarnishes with age so it'll give it a real vintage effect, sooo cool), Early Espresso ink and A Wish for Peace stamp set. Hope I remembered it all.
* I do want to add some of the stamps I used were from retired sets. I don't usually do that for a class, however I knew all the girls that were coming so I wasn't worried about this being an issue. You know, "having to have the stamp set we used but can't get it because it's retired" problem.
Hope you enjoyed my post, if you did, leave me some love. It'll help motivate me to keep updating. hehehe Yep, that's my petty plee to have you leave a comment.
