Online Classes - Holiday Workshop - Day Five

For the his and her assignment, I knew exactly what I could do with the dies I have on hand.  Those circle dies were the best thing I ever bought.  These were fun to do making one just a little fussier than the other.  Enjoyed today's class, masculine cards are a challenge for us all.

Thank you for looking.

Online Classes - Holiday Workshop - Day Four Again!

After reading Day Four's assignment, I completely missed the boat with my other submission.  Stretch your stamps was the cry, use regular stamps for Christmas or use Christmas stamps for other cards.  Looking through the gallery, I was not the only one.  This is made with an OWH stamp set for the world.  I am having fun with the A2 curved edge die.  It can change the look of any card very quickly.

Thanks for looking.

Online Classes - Holiday Workshop - Day Four

My first thought was to combine several of the techniques today into one card.  I could not come up with several words to run down on this card, but thought the "cheer" message was so clever since Santa was holding a glass of wine.  I did try stamping a pattern through the gold embossed message, but it just did not work.  I added a stamped dash line around the edge.

The hardest part of this card, was taking the picture.  Much taller than I am used to.

Thanks for looking.

Online Classes - Holiday Workshop - Day Three

They said these were easy cards and today, I have to agree with them.  This was the fastest new technique I have ever tried.  I used thin foam on the big star and the little one for added dimension.  Fun technique, I have to remember this one . . .

Thank you for looking.

Online Classes - Holiday Workshop - Day Two

Great examples today from Jennifer McGuire and Debby Hughes.  I have a very small assortment of holiday dies and stamps.  But this die cut is all one level.  The wreath is a movers and shapers die so it was difficult to line them up for cutting, but I got it done!  However, since the center of the wreath punched as a shape, I am missing the window bars across the center. But in my eyes, it is perfect!

Thank you for looking.

Online Class - Holiday Workshop - Day One

So much fun to be back to the Online Classes.  To tie the inside with the outside, I took the letters from "holidays" and put them in the jar.  Vellum is a challenge, but when I cut it out, I left tabs to wrap around the lower card stock.  

Why did I use the word "holidays'?  There are no repeating letters!

Thank you for taking a peek!
