A little Christmas Cheer

I’m sitting here still wondering how we are already in December! 

Yesterday I started my 12 days of Christmas emails – it’s simply a short and sweet email offering a different gift idea each day for 12 days.  I thought it might help some who are crafty and dont know what they want for Christmas or those who have crafty friends and dont know what to buy them.  If you arent on my mailing list maybe now is the time to join – simply pop your email address in the box in the sidebar.  I offer all sorts of specials to my subscribers and sent out my monthly class schedule as well. 

Recently I had the Christmas Mega Stack where the ladies made 20 cards in 3 hours and we sure had a lot of fun.

I love this card! It’s so easy and the ladies loved this card.  It uses Cheerful Christmas Stamp Set and all I’ve done is simply coloured the stamp with my Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped it onto the card, add some pearls and a ribbon and done!  The markers I used were Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry.

This is another super quick and super easy card. Each year I tend to do a ‘moon silhouette’ card as everyone loves the masking effect and it teaches them a new technique. You simply punch out a circle from a post-it note and sponge over the top. Once the circle is removed you have instant sky and moon!  Then you simply ink up the sleigh stamp in Lost Lagoon and stamp it partially over the moon.

I also named this my ‘ET Christmas Card‘!  

The sentiment is from Good Greetings which was a special Hostess offer in October.  To give Rudolph his red nose I simply coloured one of our small pearls with a light Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities marker, let it dry (which only takes seconds) and then placed that on the card.  I also stamped the sleigh on the envelope cos we cant send out naked envelopes now can we?  Besides it will brighten up the posties day 😉 

Thanks for stopping by and if you’d like to do the Christmas Mega Stack I’m running it again on 14th December – 20 cards (notecard size) for $25!  You can also do this class for free with a minimum order so be sure to ask how! 

Now seeing it’s December and it’s the month of ‘giving’ I’m giving everyone free shipping on orders of $75 or more … so work on that list, check it twice and make sure there is something really nice under that tree for you!  

Thanks for stopping by ….
