Here are the cards that we made:

Card #1 - Celebrate

November Kit Class Cards

Last week, we got together for our monthly Kit Class. The theme for November was winter cards that can double as a Christmas or All Occasion card.  Here is what we made:

Card #1 - Merry Patterns Birthday
This is a great masculine birthday card, the Woodland DSP and the deer in a sweater says it all!

Stamp Sets:  Merry Patterns, Special Celebrations
Ink: Early Espresso
Paper:  Sahara Sand Base, Early Espresso Layer, Woodland Designer Series Paper (DSP), Very Vanilla

Card #2 - Winter Wishes Thank You
I realize that the Winter Wishes stamp set is retired but I was looking for a sled for this card, and I love how it turned out.

Stamp Sets:  Winter Wishes (retired), All Things Thanks
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Paper:  Crumb Cake Base, Cherry Cobbler Layer, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Silver Glitter Trim

Card #3 - Birthday Celebration
Stamp Set:  Celebration Time
Ink:  Black, Rich Razzelberry
Paper:  Berry Burst Base, Sweet Sugarplum Layer, Foil Frenzy DSP 1 x 5 1/4 (2)
Accessories:  Celebration Thinlits, Dimensions

The secret to this great card is to adhere a 1 x 5 1/4 Foil Frenzy strip to the top and the bottom of the Sweet Sugarplum Layer, then using Dimensions adhere the Rich Razzelberry 2 1/4 x 5 1/4 strip right in the middle. This creates the look of using a full sheet of DSP rather than just two strips.

Card #3 - Snowflake Thanks
 Isn't this card great?!  I can see it doubling as a Christmas card, which it did when I made up a few for sending.

Stamp Sets:  Thankful Thoughts, Colorful Seasons (Inside)
Ink:  Black, Soft Sky
Paper: Soft Sky Base, Whisper White Layer, Whisper White Stitched Circle & Snowflake, Champagne Foil Snowflake & Stitched Circle
Accessories  Winter Wonder Embossing Folder, Colorful Seasons Die, Stitched Circle Die, Dimensions, Foil Snowflakes

Card #5 - So Very Sorry

Another great card that can easily double as a Christmas, but the Lovely as a Tree stamp set is a no fail every time!  This stamp set is a classic and is one of the first stamp sets created by Stampin' Up! co-founder Shelli Gardner and her sister. I am told that it will never retire and why should it, it is just as popular as ever.

Stamp Set: Lovely as a Tree, Sorry for Everything
Ink:  Black, Flirty Flamingo
Paper:  Smokey Slate Base, Grey Layer, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Wink of Stella, Silver Sequins

I hope that you enjoyed our November Kit Class cards, if you would ever like to join us, please get in touch with me.  The cards are available by attending class in Neillsville, or can be made into a kit. You have your choice of 5, 10 or 15 cards, you always end up with a great assortment.

Thanks for stopping in, as always Happy Stamping!!
Cindy

November Technique Class - Eclipse Technique

Hello everyone, I have a great technique to share with you today, it is called the Eclipse Technique and it was a hit this last week with the stamping ladies!!  Such an easy technique, you can for sure give it a try at home!

The Eclipse Technique is very popular right now. It is a great way to create a 3D effect that is so easy! After stamping your design, any die cut will do for this technique but the Large Letters Framelits is perfect and that is what we used.  They are located on page 215 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  Now don't let the price scare you, if you wait until Sale a Bration, you can get a couple of free stamp sets!!

To pop up the letters we used the Stampin' Up! Foam Adhesive strips (page 203 Annual Catalog).  A good tip is to layer the letters on top of dark cardstock in order to get the shadow effect. With these letters any four letter work is going to work.  So we started thinking of words; Hugs, Deck, Boy, Girl, Love, Fall, Hope, Dad, Mom, Grad, Faith and Baby.  Wow!  I will be able to come with cards using this technique all year!

Ready to see the cards?  Here they are!!

Card #1 - Night in Bethlehem
Stamp Set:  Night in Bethlehem
Ink:  Smokey Slate, Memento Black, Crushed Curry, Night of Navy
Paper:  Night of Navy Base, Whisper White Layer
Accessories:  Large Letters Framelits, Year of Cheer Washi Tape

Card #2 -Joy
Stamp Set:  Christmas Happiness
Ink:  Real Red, Black, Old Olive
Paper:  Real Red Base, Old Olive Layer, Whisper White, Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper
Accessories:  Real Red Think Ribbon, Glue Dots, Foam Adhesive Strips, Large Letters Framelits

Card #3 - Fancy Fold - Double Front Fold
This is the front.
This is the inside once.

This is the inside twice.

Stamp Set:  Painted Harvest
Ink:  Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Cajun Craze Base, Very Vanilla Inside Card, Painted Autumn DSP
Accessories:  Black Twine, Black Rhinestone Jewels

There you have it!  Let me know what you think of the cards, I always like to hear from you!  Remember that these cards are also available as a Kit, just pop me a message and I will email you the details.  Thanks for dropping in and....

Happy Stamping!
Cindy
