Stampin' Up! ~ My Holiday Card Class

Hello Friends,

This past Monday was "Card Class" at my house. This was the first of two holiday card making classes I am offering this holiday season. 

As you can see everyone was having such fun, especially my mom since her precious cat decided she wanted to stamp too!

At my home classes we usually create 3 projects in about 2 hours. It is a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere except when the ladies begin laughing because Melanie forgets numerous items needed in class and it is an on going joke as to "How many times will Melanie have to run to and from her craft room?" Luckily my craft room is right off the kitchen so I don't have to go far.

Here are the cards we made in class. We will be having 1 more holiday card making class on Dec. 12th, 2016 if you are local and would like to attend. 



We have used numerous Stampin' Up! Products here. I will post a supply list below for a reference.



Isn't Rudolph Adorable? You cannot see it in the photo but the reindeer's antlers have "Wink of Stella" to give them a "Sparkle" so I chose the sentiment with that in mind. 


The class favorite was, to my surprise, the green card above. It was the simplest card to make but my ladies loved it.  


One last look....This is my amazing mother. She looks forward to card class because she loves when "The Ladies" visit. Mom keeps up as best she can and is known for completely changing the card design but like I always say"Art is in the eye of the beholder, there is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to create.

If you do not currently have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I would be honored to have you as a customer. Contact me with any questions and thank you so much for stopping by today!

Quick Creation's Sunflower by Doveart Studios

Welcome back friends,

I am here with you today to share with you a beautiful stamp by Dove Art Studio. This stamp simply named "Sunflower" was such a fun stamp to color. Of course I have used my copic markers with lots of fall colors to create this beauty. 


Other items I have used to create this card are papers by Wild Rose Studio named "Harvest Meadow" as well as a few little dew drops created using Nuvo Crystal Drops in English Mustard

Make sure to check out all the current items in the Quick Creations Online Store.

LDRS Creative CandiBean Handpicked for Hedgy

Happy Monday everyone. 

I just recently purchased two real Hedge Hogs so I just had to have my very first design team blog post for LDRS Creative to be using one of CandiBean's adorable hedge hog stamps. Here are my two REAL heggies. 




Now for my project inspired by my babies. This little fellow (Stamp) below is named "Handpicked for Hedgy" and has been colored with Copic Markers.



I have used numerous LDRS dies with this project including the brand new Peaceful Dove Edge die along with our Creative Basic Fancy Rectangles and Layers set. With the Peaceful Dove Edge Die I simply cut it numerous times with 3 different fall colored card stocks. Then fussy cut to create multi colored leaves. To finish out the card I used the "Wishing You" sentiment stamp set. 

Be sure to check out all the amazing stamps, dies, and embossing folders in the LDRS Store!! Have a Happy Week Everyone!
