Christmas Star Tag

Here is another way I have used the Christmas Star stamp.  This time as a thank you tag for my customers who made a purchase with me this month.

I stamped the star with Versamark and gold embossed it.  This time I cut it out and scored the inner lines.  I then folded it so that it had dimension to it.  I mounted it on top of a flat cut out star so I could right my thank you message on the back - which I wrote before I put them together.  I adhered them together with a few layers of Dimensionals in the middle and a drop of Tombow glue at the pointed edges.  

Here is a photo which shows the dimension the folds give to it. 

Thanks for dropping by.

Merry Little Christmas Card Class

I have a class coming up which uses the Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit. In this class you will create 8 cards. 

This is the "Merry Little Christmas" Kit:


The kit contains everything you need (except adhesive and stamps) to make unique Christmas cards. This includes; cardstock cards, envelopes, envelope liners, die-cut Designer Series Paper and cardstock accents, buttons, Baker’s Twine.

The finished card size is  4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

We will make eight cards similar to the samples shown.  We will make four cards using the “Merry Little Christmas” stamp set  and four cards using the “Wishing You” stamp set. 

Below is a card using the kit and the "Wishing You" stamp set.  

It was created by Paula Reid and an example of what else can be made with this set.

Cost: Class and Simply Created Card Kit which makes 8 cards: $24 ($3 per card) 

When: Thursday 21st November at 9:30am

RSVP: By 6pm Wednesday 13th  November as kits need to be pre-ordered
I still have a couple of spaces available, so please contact me today if you are interested.

If you wish to come to this class you will need to pre-book and pay so I can pre-order the kits.  I will provide the stamps, ink and adhesive to use in class.  You will also have the use of my punches and other craft products like the Big Shot so you can dress up the card a little more.  If you look at the middle card you will see it has a bit of textured added to the card front.  This is not part of the card kit, but this can be achieved with the use of the Big Shot and the dots embossing folder.  You will have the use of such craft tools at the class and I will be able to show you what to do.

During the class you will stamp the greetings and/or images for your eight cards, use punches, big shot etc.  You may not have time to put all eight cards together completely, but you will do have done all the stamping you need to do, so you can finish assembling them at home.

If you wish to purchase more than one card kit you may do so. Each additional kit is $21.
If you are interested in doing more stamping at home, but don’t know where to start, perhaps you may also like to buy yourself another card kit, stamp set and ink pad, or if you are not able to attend the class, you may like to purchase it and make it at home.  Please contact me for more details about the card kit and stamp sets is available.

Please contact me if you would like to attend this class or would like further information.

Have a great day.

Christmas Extravaganza - Festive Flurry Tag

Last weekend, I had the privilege of working with a wonderful group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators to put on the Christmas Extravaganza event in Auckland.  It was the first time I had taken part in such an event and it was a lot of fun. 

This is what Jacque Williams and I taught.  A lovely Christmas tag inspired by the tags on page 12 and 13 of the Holiday catalogue.

 Here is a close up of the tag.

This tags uses the wonderful Festive Flurry stamp set and dies.  The dies make it so easy to cut out these snowflakes.  The Frosted Finishes Embellishment really finishes it off.

Thanks for stopping by.
