Holiday Spirit is in the Air!

It's getting to be that time of year again. We all start thinking of the Holidays and wonder just WHAT do we plan first! Right? So much happens so quickly.... No sooner do the little Gobblins leave your porch; that the Thanksgiving guests come filing through the front door.  If that's not enough to get your stress going.... and while the turkey is cooking, you start wondering how will I get my Christmas cards in the mail on time.


Well at least that's my mind set....
So with that in mind... here are few of the cards I am planning for the November Card class.


I plan to use the one card below (white with 3 die cut trees) again this month.  It was huge hit with the girls and it looks fabulous in many different DSP colors. Use your imagination and picture it in Cherry Cobbler, or Soft Pinks, or the many shades of Greens... or how about Black and White?




The next card is just a fun Winter Theme.... The air is crisp and you can feel winter right around the corner. This card's focal point - bird on a mailbox -  is highlighted by the many winter words of the back ground stamps. Does it make you want to cozy up with a cup of Hot Cocoa?


I changed up the color scheme in each card, but the overall design is still the same.
Which do you prefer?

Okay....I'll fess up. That really isn't a mailbox; it's a "for sale" sign. However, I snipped the hanging portion off because it was too distracting in black.  If you tilt your head and use your imagination you WILL see a mailbox. Right?

There will two more cards for class, but as of this posting I'm not committed to anything particular yet. However, I will share a card I made to send my grandkids Halloween $$$ Treat to them. It has long since been mailed but I still wanted to share. I did CASE this card from another blog, but can't remember which one ... sorry.

I really do like how it turned out.

November class? .... Oh no can't wait!

I was going to save these two for my November class but decided... OH NO! Can't wait .. it will be too late if someone wants to use for a Christmas card. If they are anything like me... I should be starting my Christmas cards NOW!
Both of these are easy and can be use for either a winter birthday or Christmas Here are the two cards.

.... Since I have several birthdays in December and January... I love the Winter Wishes card and will be using for them for birthdays for sure!
 

Not sure why these are showing so 'dull'... perhaps because I forwarded from my phone text ????
In person they are beautiful. One uses Old Olive the other has Baja Breeze as the accent color.
 If you zoom it may show better.
Oh well .... hope the girls in the October class like them as much as me.

OCTOBER CLASS

Wow... I just can't believe it's October Class "prep" time already. I am going to share two of the kits I have ready for the October class.

The first is Super Simple! Begin by adding some fun party DSP to the top half of the card. Round the corner for interest. Die cut the Large EVER..... and choose your occasion... such as Best Friend Ever! Or Best Day Ever!.... Here I chose a birthday theme.
Best Birthday Ever!

 
I die cut the Cake and use sponges or daubers to blend the inks from light to darker. Then stamp a sentiment to match the occasion. Use a dimensional to POP the cake up! 
Done!

The second card is easy but takes a little time.
First use the Swirls cover plate die with one cutting plate and embossing hard rubber plate to cut
in to the card front but not through. IF you zoom in you can see the fun swirl design.

Then die cut the dinosaurs and stamp in the colors of your choice...Arrange your creatures however you like.  I added a balloon to the T-Rex and this helps to carry the "RAAAA" themed circle.
Pretty cute ... right?
Thanks for Stopping!

Just in Thyme

Here is a quick post using a new die and stamp set of herbs.
The first herb is Mint
Here is peek at the inside.
I will have to play around with the words and see what I can come up for any other cards.

The second card is Thyme.

Now I'll have to work with parsley.

June Class Choices

A quick post to show you a few of the choices the girls will have to pick from for the June Card Class. I can hardly believe it's JUNE already!
The first card is a fun shoe print which can be masculine or feminine and would be great for any runners that you know. Since June is also Father's Day  and I especially like this stamp set, I think this card would work perfectly. Not only can it be a "Father's Day" card, it would work great for a Masculine Birthday too. 
This set also contains many cute sentiments for the insoles. If you zoom in you can read these two.
 Below is a peek at the inside of the card on the left that I'm using for friend going through chemo.
Below is another all occasion card layout where you can make your own background patterns. This looks so different depending on the colors used. I also made several using greens and yellows.
The next is another easy peasy card to create when you need a card in a pinch. I have made several and left the inside blank. I will stamp the sentiment I need depending on the occasion.
This card uses the skate and swirl star die cut as well as a swish cover plate die.
The girls do 4 cards at class, and I usually give out 3 and let them pick the 4th one.
I hope they like these 3 of the 6 card kits I have prepared.

Hugs
Diane
