Little Santas.

While I have been a little quiet lately it is not from lack of creating.
No, it is more that I have been creating Christmas cards and gifts that I can't share yet. (don't want to spoil the surprise).

Next Saturday is the first of my last two classes for the year and we are in Christmas Mode! Preferred dress for the occasion is Christmassy with all the trimmings.
I like to give out a little gift to the best dressed and also one for the person who "forgot". hehe.
This is my little Santa Gift this year. Aren't they cute?
I have used
1 3/8 circle punch for the head.
2 3/8 scallop circle punch for the beard (doubled over so you can write inside it if you want).
bird punch wings for the moustache
eyes and nose are from the owl punch
Modern label punch for the hat trim
triangle hat from the petite pennants builder punch
pom pom on hat is from the itty bitty shapes punch pack.
To go with my Santa tag, I made a little Santa Suit out of the gift holder which is just a piec…

Festive Flurry Fun

I really have been enjoying the Festive Flurries bundle. The snowflake stamp set and framelits are just so easy to create with.
Come and see the class cards we did last week with this nifty set and the matching Winter Frost Specialty designer paper.
This card has a detachable snowflake ornament.
The ornament layers are:
1 silver embossed large snowflake
1 soft sky medium snowflake
1 silver glimmer card small snowflake
1 pool party embossed small snowflake.
Topped up with a frosted finish embellishment.
It is just held on with a dimensional over the top of another snowflake that remains on the card.

The other card was made using inspiration from Bronwyn Eastley who I saw make a card like this using the Butterfly Bigz Die.
The snowflake on the top of this single layer card is an easel card.
Here is a close up of the snowflake.
Snowflake recipe:
Bermuda Bay 1 large snowflake
Silver glimmer card 1 large snowflake
Silver embossed medium snowflake
Pool party embossed small snowflake

Flowershop birthday and a walk.

Last Tuesday I had to make a special birthday card for my son's lovely girlfriend.
It is a lot of pressure to make a young, trendy, hip card let me tell you but I think I managed.
Cardstock: Crumbcake, Soft Sky, Whisper White, Brown Sugar.
Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink, Crumbcake, Brown Sugar.
Flowershop Stamp set and pansy punch.
I embossed the Brown Sugar and Soft Sky flowers with white embossing powder as well as the grid stamp from Summer Silhouettes that I stamped across the Soft Sky piece of cardstock.
I used the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder on the right hand side of the card.

I also used some burlap ribbon that I frayed at the bottom and the smallest Delicate Doilies Sizzlit in crumbcake.

And seeing as the card was a 14cx 14cm card I needed a matching envelope. So I whipped out my brand new Envelope Maker and had one made in minutes!! Love it!!
A piece of designer paper from Epic Day This and That and it was a perfect match for my card.
The best bit...I didn't even like t…
