Christmas Kickoff This Weekend

SnowmanMerry Christmas -- a 3 1/2 months early!  This Saturday we will kickoff our Christmas card making classes with two wonderful classes.  Each class uses a popular favorite embellishment -- glitter and flower soft -- to give the cards that special holiday look.  Please note that t

his project is inspired by one I saw on this blog: http://stamptalkwithtosh.blogspot.com.  Thanks Tosh!  We will make 6 cards using a new set of clear stamps from Inkadinkado (set name is Holiday Greetings).  A little coloring with Copic markers, a little glitter, ribbon and buttons and you've got a wonderful set of cards for friends and family.  Here's the link to my website http://stampactelpaso.com/SEPTEMBER2009.html where you can view all the cards -- just scroll down to September 18 at 10am.  Please call (915-833-9500) or email me (hellopolly@aol.com) to register for class.  we would love to have you!

Penguin-Card Saturday afternoon's class will be Hero-Pine-Boughequally fun with Flower Soft taking center stage!  In the card at left (designed by Barb Schram, Just Rite Design team), penguins play inthe snow while on the right, snow coats the pine bough (Hero Arts).  Below you will see flower soft snow dusting the branches of the Fantasy Tree (Penny Black).  Isn't this paper divine?  it's from S.E.I. and it's even prettier in person.  The final cards uses Flower Soft Vintage Christmas and one of their pre-printed toppers to make a quick and easy card.  Please join us at 2pm on Sat!

Belated-Birthday-Turtle This week I had to make a two birthday cards.Magenta-Ship  First I made Felicity a belated birthday card using a cute little Inakadinkado clear stamp turtle and colorful paper from Prima.  The frame is the very versatile Polka Dot frame from Spellbinders.  For a male friend I used a ship from Magenta Rubber Stamps and paper from K and Co.  This ship card was quite a challenge as I had to find inks and Copic marker colors that would coordinate with the paper.  I finally stamped the ship in Weather Wood Distress ink (Ranger); colored the sails with Copic BG000, the boat with W1 and the flag with R81.  The background is distressed with Ranger distress inks Frayed Burlap, Weathered Wood and Black Soot. The sentiment stamp is very old from PSX and it too is stamped in Weathered Wood.  I think it makes a very nice card for a guy!

Go Aggies

Go-Aggies Aggie-MomSince my niece Emilee is going to Texas A & M   I had to copy a couple of the cards that Mark at Deadbeat Designs designed.  One for Emilee (left) and one for my sister Ann.  She actually goes to an Aggie Mom's group so this card is very appropriate!  I know they will be surprised and pleased with these.
