NOVEMBER EASY AS PIE STAMPING FRIENDS CLASS
 

Fall is in the air, finally!!
I live in North Texas and we finally have some fall weather (Oct. 21 85º/55º, Oct. 28 60º/34º). We really don't have seasons it's more of a hot or cold kind of thing. When we get tired of the heat, usually around July, we wish for the cold and when we get tired of the cold, we wish for the heat to return. I created these projects at my annual crafting retreat that I attend every year in Lucas Texas. I get 3 days of uninterruped crafting time. I feel so creative, inspired and recharged with this fabulous group of 18 ladies. I'm so excited to present these great projects for my November class. I have a Thanksgiving inspired treat bag, a sweet card with a hidden gift and a pop-up card inspired by Santa's Sleigh stamp set.

Merry Patterns Fun!

EASY AS PIE STAMPING
My mission is to teach you that anyone can create beautiful, creative and professional cards to give to family and friends. I have a simple “recipe” that will make creating cards Easy As PIE.
This is all you need to do:

Merry Patterns Photopolymer Stamp Set

I just love it when I can sit down and play with a new stamp set. The Merry Patterns stamp set is so much fun with the deer dressed in a winter sweater and the beautiful patterns on the candles and the large words that can be the focal point of a card. I love the versatility of these images. You can create traditional, whimsical or modern style cards.

It's Sweater Weather
 

The first card I created was inspired by a technique I found on Pinterest by Debbie Henderson (click here to watch her video). I thought it was a very clever idea to cut slits on either side of one of the trees and slip the deer behind the tree. Cherry Cobbler is my favorite red in the Stampin' Up! palette. It is a nice color for a winter sweater and the 1/4" double stitched ribbon in Cherry Cobbler reminds me of a scarf. The added detail of the black lines to the birch trees with the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and the shading with the Smoky Slate ink applied with a Sponge Dauber gives the trees a more realistic look. I like to have matching envelopes and the tiny repeating deer in the Be Merry DSP coordinates perfectly with this card.

Candles that Sparkle and Shine
   
                                                                                                                        Wink of Stella used on flames

For the next card I made, I used the candle images. This card was all about using non-traditional Christmas colors and lots of sparkle. I chose Pink Pirouette (for my red) and Lemon Lime Twist (for my green) for the candles and Wild Wasabi for the pine branches. I used black, silver and iridescent sequins, silver embossing powder, silver 1/8" ribbon and Wink of Stella applied to the candle flames to give the card that special Christmas twinkle. This card could easily become a birthday card by changing the color scheme and the greeting. To create a matching envelope I used the large greeting and stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist ink.


'tis the Season

With card number three, I was going for a more rustic, folk art feel. I accomplished this by using one of the wood grain DSP sheets, wood accent pieces and the matte vanilla side of the Foil Snowflake, which imitates the whitewashed Wood Textures DSP pattern I chose. My choice of green for this card was Tranquil Tide. To created a matching envelope I used the Tranquil Tide pattern from the Eastern Palace DSP.
