Christmas Card Class and Stamp Sale

So earlier this week I previewed a card that will be in my Christmas card class. Let me explain the details of the class. It is a "stamp and stack," which is just like it sounds. We will make 20 cards. 4 different designs and 5 of each design. The cost is $25, or $20 if you make a catalog order that day. You will also need to have your own adhesive (preferably the snail). So here are two more of the cards we will be making at the class. 

And just in case you missed it last time here is the other card I previewed.

The next card should be ready some time next week and will feature a stamp with the 3 wise men and a Bethlehem scene. If you are interested in attending please RSVP through my demonstrator website by November 1st. I hope you can attend and make some homemade cards for your family and friends. 

On another note, Monday Stampin Up! in having an amazing event!

A random assortment...

So I have a few things I wanted to share and they are all pretty random so here goes! The first is some cute little Halloween bags I made that I will be giving out to co-workers and the like this year. I made them using a bundle from the Holiday catalog. Those bundles are pretty great! I hope they have them in the next mini catalog! They don't have candy in them yet but they will. The best part is they have googly eyes. :)

The next item is not something I made but something I purchased from Stampin Up!. They finally have the Stampin Trimmer ready!!! It is only available to demonstrators now but you should be able to order it next month. It is awesome! You are able to cut and score with it! I cut out a standard size card and then scored a fold line with the same tool. Holy moly people! It is quite a deal and I highly recommend it.

Finally I have my first card ready for my Christmas card class! I'm pretty excited how it turned out. Because of how many we will be making it needed to be simple yet fabulous. The sparkles do just that. I also love the chevron pattern. It adds a lot to the card and is one of my favorite trends going around. You have until November 1st to sign up for the class. Look on my website to get details and RSVP.

Ladybug Ink October Blog Hop!

If you are starting the hop here hello to my dedicated readers. Otherwise you just came from Camelita's blog and welcome! 

This month our theme is... Halloween of course! I am super excited about my project. I wanted something fun that could use some of the cute stamps from the holiday catalog, and googly eyes of course! So I decided I wanted to make a haunted house card. It has many layers and parts so here's a step by step look at it. 

The first is the outside of the card. Is has the roof of the house folded over and tied down so you can still put it in an envelope. 

 The next view of it is with the thread off and the roof up. I used the new embossing folder on the brown card stock to make it look more like a wood house. I just free handed the window using yellow paper and a stampin write marker.

 The next view is with the door open and a little witch waiting to say Boo! 

The next view is from the side so you can see all the layers and that it is actually a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 size card. 

The last view is of the inside of the card. I'm pretty excited how it turned out! It's a really fun, interactive card and I can't wait to give it to someone!

This last picture is just for fun and because I'm really excited about it. It's not a Stampin Up! Project, but I was really getting festive with this card and decided to make a Halloween wreath. I love the bold colors and my little bird friends that are hiding in it. :)

I hope you enjoyed stopping by and happy hopping!

Fall Fun

So it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Albuquerque. I noticed that the leaves are ever so slightly starting to change. Even though today was pretty warm again, the weekend was kinda cold so I felt inspired tonight to make something fallish.

The first project here is a thank you card. I have seen these pumpkins made from punches through various blogs and stamping sites. So I wanted to give it a try. The first time I saw it was from this blog, and my card is a rendition from it, so I want to give her credit. I liked the idea of giving the card a pumpkin patch feel. So I thought it needed a crow. :) I used the Everything Elenor Stamp Set for the vines and it comes with a cute little bird. So I thought use black ink and there's a crow for you.

The next project is a little goodie bag I made using the Perfectly Preserved Buldle. I really like making goodie bags. I put cookies in this one. It's a fun way to give someone baked goods and dress them up a bit.
I hope you enjoyed some fun fall projects. Be sure to check back on Friday as I will be participating in the monthly Ladybug Ink blog hop.
