We made two (all Stampin' Up!) projects this time. The first one was a simple Christmas card with cute little houses and imaginative backgrounds. Thanks to Gina K for the embossing sketch idea:
Cardstock: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe
Embossing folder: Decorative Dots
Stamps and framelits: Holiday Homes
Markers & inks: Coastal Cabana, Going Gray, White Stampin' Chalk marker, Gold Stampin' Dazzle marker, Garden Green marker
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details
Next we played with the Curvy Keepsake Box die and various stamps to make some cute treat boxes. I have so many more things to try with this sweet little box shape!
NOTE: If you are going to emboss vellum cardstock, you might need to use another layer of vellum (a vellum shim) inside your embossing folder to avoid having split vellum. If you get a small split, you can 'repair' it with a little doubles sided adhesive. On the inside, use a piece to repair the split, peel off the backing and remove the stickiness by puffing it up with the Embossing Buddy. It practically disappears! Thanks, Embossing Buddy! :)
Whew! That was enough fum for one morning! lol! Not really. I went on to add a few more touches to the plans fro our Tuesday class, where more Christmas projects and a mini album will be created.
