December Fun!!!

Quick post to show some of the treat TAGS I've been making for class and also for some small exchange gift of a few Christmas Dinner Get-to-Gethers that are coming up.
The first is from PTI dies and stamp set... Santa and Snowman treat holders. These also work great on jar of Pepper Jelly, etc. or a small 2" diameter candle.

Here is the snowman holding some Trail Mix.

I also made 8 holding little treat bags I made with DSP and another tags. These will be for class on Wednesday and if you want to peek... I posted them on Pinterest.

Here are some other tags I made for my Torch Lake Girls group dinner treat.
Here is close up of a couple.
Now lastly... a few cards the girls will make in class.
I made several versions of this one. Some may not want to use for Christmas. I also have a few January birthdays coming up.

Guess who this is going to???
I'm waiting for our first real SNOW! ....Nancy!

Sorry just one more... An Oldie but a Goodie and easy to make.
Here is the inside.

Well thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas!

November Class Cards

A quick post to show 3 of the 4 cards the girls will be making tonight. The 4th card they choose from left over kits of previous classes. I have so many kits I'm getting buried in them, so I decided to use them as the 4th card until I thin out the piles.

This first card of the gift stack is variation of a card the girls made in a previous month using the same stamp set. I really like this set because it can be Christmas, Birthday, Graduation, Shower or whatever other occasion you give a gift! The colors help to determine the "mood" of the card too.  

This next one is just a warm and cozy feeling.... especially here in Michigan at this time year.
 It too can be used for many occasions and made in many different colors.
The 3rd card is a way for me use up some old DSP as background paper. I really love the double stacked ornament die. Again there are so many variations you can do with color,  DSP and Cardstock.
All you need is imagination!

I hope they like these 3... and as I said, they can pick their 4th.
So who ever gets done first will have first pick!

I am having so much fun making FALL FAVORS for my card class girls and the people at work that I've literally spent DAYS in my basement die cutting and gluing favors for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!  They turned out so cute, but I don't want to post too early and spoil them seeing the treats.

So instead.......  I will post a random card I made using some scraps of DSP.  Here is my card.

This is a new JAR die I purchased... I have about 5 now between SU and other companies. They are all different, but I really have a lot of ideas waiting to evolve! So look forward to that!

I also used a touch of the two scrap DSPs inside. Can you see the tiny strip of black I trimmed from the top piece?  It almost seems like one paper.. However, I didn't use an inside sentiment yet, but I like the mix of papers - I think it gives interest. ....  Right?

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Happy FALL

October Class Fun

Next month I decided to have a different plan for my class. I have several left over kits as well as some new ones. So decided to leave them on the side table and let the girls pick which 4 cards they want to make.  As you know there are some from my previous posts and I will share just a few of the new ones I have prepared.
In the end I think they'll have about 10 kits to choose from!
The first card is a little bit of Thanksgiving Gratefulness in Soft Suade and Creamy Caramel.

Moving right into Christmas... I just have to get started on my cards or I won't get the 90 I need finished until the week of Christmas!
The DSP on this card is retired but I just loved it so I am happy I stocked up on it a few years ago.
This could be for just about anything FALL.
Another version using complimentary stamp set to the one above.
Another Christmas card, but again the gifts can be used as a whole, or cut apart to be used for Birthday or Showers. They look fabulous in any colors of the rainbow.
Thanks for stopping by, and won't you please leave a comment and let me know what you think?

Fall Fun For Friends

Here are few more cards I made for the Fall.
The first is for a friend recovering from surgery. It was a rough road, but hopefully he is on the mend.
The second reminds me of Fall... ever though it is year round tree for a porch, etc.
The third is much like the second.... a porch greenery shrub/bush/tree.... ???
I really like this set of stamps and dies... if you look close you can see how it cuts the small pine blades on the zoomed photo.
Very simple but I like both!
If you look close you can see the paper piercing around the tree. I off centered the tree to the piercing and added some enamel dots for interest and balance. I also chose to stamp the sentiment at an angle.
One or two of these may make my next class! Which one do like best?
Thanks so much for stopping by... please leave a comment and tell me what you think.
