Would you like to make your own Christmas cards for the special people in your life this year. The following 2 cards are the what you can make at my StampinUp Christmas card class on 22nd October 2017, 1-3.30 at the community room at Asda Mount Pleasant, Holderness Road Hull.
Oh WOW the beautiful Coffee Break Suite from StampinUP
Personally I don’t drink coffee, so when the Coffee Break Suite came out in the StampinUp Annual catalogue, I skipped past it. However I have seen loads of great projects, cards and 3d gifts being made that I could resit no longer.
To make this little gift box I Cased from The Craft Spa I have used
SO THE AUTUMN WINTER STAMPINUP CATALOGUE WAS LAUNCHED ON THE FIRST OF SEPTEMBER
THERE IS LOTS OF CHRISTMASY STAMPS AND ACCESSORIES IN THERE AS WELL AS SPOOKY BITS FOR HALLOWEEN, SUCH AS A CAT PUNCH. I HAVE SEEN SO MANY PEOPLE USING THIS PUNCH FOR A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF CARD.
HOWEVER, I LOVE CHRISTMAS AND EXCITED TO HAVE MADE A START ON MY CHRISTMAS CARDS, MY FAVOURITE OF ALL THE NEW BITS IS THE CHRISTMAS QUILTING BUNDLE
I AM NOT A QUILTER, BUT JUST LOVE THE PATTERN AND THAT I CAN USE IT FOR CHRISTMAS CARDS IN TRADITIONAL COLOURS OR MIX IT UP FOR EVERYDAY CARDS. THE PAPER STACK AVAILABLE MATCHES PERFECTLY TOO MATCHING PAPER STACK
StampinUp is all about sharing ideas. Heidi from flutterbyheidi is certainly one of the people I watch often on YouTube and practice her techniques. This week I came across an old video she had done as part of her ferrero Friday videos. I didn’t have flamelits set that she used in her demo, so I changed it up a little and used swirly scribbles instead.
Score the wild wasabi card at 1 and 2 cms on all four sides,
Cut off 3 little squares as shown on photo below
Glue and fold in the flaps to make a little tray.
Add the swirls to each side then attach the ribbon around the edge.
Add chocolate and it’s done!
My inspiration for todays peekaboo card comes from Dawns stamping thoughts, she is on youtube and her videos are really clear and straight forward for what looks like quite a complicated card. Here is a link to the video.
Hi, today a Peekaboo Slider Card, with inspiration from Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on YouTube I made this card. Originally I made the birthday one, one of the ladies in my class put flowers on the front of hers, and I thought I like that.
A friend of mine was asked to make a card for a 3 year old who loves Thomas the Tank Engine, who doesn’t! As I have said before I am not the most creative of people so I popped on to pintrest and youtube to seek inspiration. Patsy Waggoner had a great video and blog with just want I was looking for click here for her video. I play with Punch Art from time to time and pleased that I had the punches I needed.
Ok, so today I was watching my upline on live chat talking about crafting, she set a challenge to pick 2 random colours from my inks (without looking) and make a card using them. Here is what I created.
Finally the booked room was available for andicrafts to start the crafting class. The room is quite spacious as it turns out and is more than useable.
Just hope now that Andrea enjoys the time while crafting with people.
If Andrea enjoys the session and people turn up I am sure if you send her a message she will oblige and do another class for people to visit.
