A Little Christmas

Sunday I had a group of 10 ladies over for my annual Holiday SAS. It is always nice to get together with fellow stampers. I created 3 card designs and they made 4 of each of the designs. They were so pleased to walk out with 12 completed Christmas cards. I was a bit nervous how the whole afternoon was going to go, since it was the first class I've held since dropping my demo ship. They didn't even notice and I think they actually were a bit relieved to not feel the pressure to place an order. I did keep the cards all SU since that is what they are used to. Here's what we did. This one focused on the rich Christmas Cocoa specialty dsp. My sample here shows the snowflakes with a bit of shimmer (thanks to the Shimmer Paints) but the girls just stamped those with versamark. We played with the Shimmer Paints on this next card. This was about as difficult as I got this year, sponging on the white shimmer paint. I really tried hard to keep it simple, I think I did a good job-clean lines, stamping and punching, and a few little ribbon knots or tabs. This one is a close version to a card we did at Cinci Regionals. I added the Petals a Plenty embossing folder on the celery strip and they LOVED this detail. I think those embossing folders, regardless of the brand are one of the greatest paper crafting accessories invented!!! I'm outta here. My house is in shambles, I'm not feeling well, but my new carpeting should be finished up today. I'm scheduling this post, and I hoping to be back up and running later tonight. See you tomorrow! phew!!!!Hugs, Lisa
