Christmas stamping event

This is a happy whimsical card I made for my Christmas Stamping event that is today and tomorrow at The Cleveland Candle Company.  It uses the Hero Arts 'Stamp and Cut' penguin and a Memory Box word die in a My Favorite Things Designs circle window card.

Standing Christmas Tree Card

Love this new card fold I saw on Splitcoaststamper so I made it into one of the cards for my annual Christmas Stamping Event on Dec 4-5.  The background snowflake stamp and the layered tree stamp are both from Hero Arts and the Christmas die is from Simon Says Stamps.  I really love the way this card looks!

Love Christmas Card

I thought this card was appropricate for 'Black Friday'.  It is one of the more elegant cards we will be making at my annual Christmas Stamping Event on Dec 3-4 at 1:00.  I used layers and the negative of the dies to achieve this elegant look.  Background dotted stamp and word die is from My Favorite things, embossing folder is from Sizzix.

Polar Bear Christmas Card

 Here is another of the cards we will be making at my annual Christmas Stamping Event.  We will be making 8 cards for the holidays.  This one is using Sizzix side step die and My Favorite things stamp set.  It is so much cuter in real life.

Christmas Stamping Event

I will be holding my annual Christmas Stamping Event on Friday and Saturday December 3-4 at 1:00 each day at The Cleveland Candle Company in Mentor.  This is for experienced stampers only (not beginners) since we will be making 8 cards for $25.  This is one of the eight cards we will be making.  Registration is already over but I do have a few openings if you are still interested.  Please contact ME to attend ASAP since I would like to start cutting for this over the weekend.  After I start cutting it will be too late!!!

I am being Apple challenged right now with the transfer from iPhoto to Photo so it has been very time consuming for me to get photos on my computer.  Just letting you know since I am not sure if I can figure it out and get many more posts ready till I can get to an Apple store.

Candle, Paper, Scissors Class

I will be teaching a class at The Cleveland Candle Company on Dec 1, Tues at both one and seven.  You will make an 8 oz soy wax candle by selecting and mixing your own scents and then while they are setting up I will help you make a larger luminary for it to set in, a Santa suit pillow box for your gift card giving and a center step Christmas card.  You can call the store in Mentor to sign up.  Hope to see you there.  It is a great night out with a friend!

Penquin Pillow Box

Can you tell I used an owl's wings for this penguin pillow box?  I got creative with the design and added all the details to make the pillow box look like a penguin.  I included a note card  for you to add you message and a snack size Hershey's bar.  These are great for your gift cards, tips, checks, cash gifts and other small gifts.  And they can be re-purposed for next year too!!! The pillow box and wings (owl) are from Lawn Fawn.  My shows are over for the year but if you need anything before Christmas email me and I can see if I can help you out.
