Oh ~ where to start? You can now order from the Holiday Mini Catalog. There are so many fun new products in this mini, it's a good thing we have until January 3, 2010 to get them all! If you haven't seen it, click on the picture and take a look. There's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and even Valentine's Day. You can get all your cardmaking & scrapbook projects prepared and ready to go for the next several months. Or, I bet you have crafty friends that would love to receive some new Stampin' Up! products in their Christmas stockings.
I promised I would share the cards from my last class, so here's the first one. I got a card similar to this in a swap & revamped it a bit for class. I try to use different color combinations, and one tool that is extremely helpful is my Color Coach. It is a swatch of each color of cardstock and has a guide on the back with the coordinating colors. If you find putting colors together a challenge, this tool is a must. You can check it out in the catalog. Sometimes I still do my own thing, just using it as a guide.
I've used Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla. The Marina Mist is embossed using the Big Shot and the Finial Press Embossing Folder. I love these folders, they make your embossing very crisp & clean. The little tabs are the Small Oval Punch, just folded over and attached with a Crumb Cake Brad from the Neutrals Collection. The friends stamp is from Vintage Vogue, and the sentiment is from the Grateful Greetings stamp set. The ribbon is Marina Mist Taffeta.
We have a fabulous incentive this month if you're thinking about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!
