Christmas Ornament Class

I finally have some projects that I've made to show you!  I made these ornaments for my Christmas Ornaments Class this Friday.  To find out more about this class, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.
 
The stamped ornament is the one featured on the Holiday Catalog cover, and the two ornaments made with DSP use a quicker and easier method of making these ornaments.  I'm definitely going to make more of the quicker ornaments for our Christmas tree this year!
 


 These are the ornaments that will be made at the class.
 

 
This ornament is the one featured on the cover of the Holiday Catalog.
 

 
This ornament was made with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP.  It's very hard to see in the picture, but the snowflakes are sparkly and shimmery...so pretty in person!



This ornament is made with the Snow Festival DSP.  The snowflakes on this ornaments are shimmery as well...so wintry-looking!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  I hope you're all enjoying the day with family and friends!  I'm so thankful to God for everything He has blessed me with...my husband, our kids, our home, and SO much more.
 
I wanted to share a card that would make a good Thanksgiving card.  I used this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #17 to make this card.  I'm still so in love with this stamp set (Perfectly Preserved, p. 29 in the Holiday Catalog).  This is the first time I've used the corn cob stamp, and I really like it.  I inked the stamp up with Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, and Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Markers, and stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock.  After doing this three times, I die-cut each of them with the Cannery Set Framelits dies (p. 29 - Holiday Catalog).
 
I ran the More Mustard layer through the Big Shot (p. 186) with the Fancy Fan Impressions folder (p. 189).  I attached it to the Early Espresso card base.  I die-cut one of the long edges of a Early Espresso strip with one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits dies (p. 190), and then attached a smaller strip of Orchard Harvest DSP (p. 28 Holiday Catalog) onto it.  I then attached the three corn cobs.
 
I stamped the "just for you" banner from the same stamp set onto some Lucky Limeade card stock in Early Espresso ink.  I then die-cut it with the Bitty Banners Framelits dies (p. 191).  I put a Stampin' Dimensional onto the back, center of it, and put Snail Adhesive on each end, and attached it to the card.  I made sure that I pressed down on the ends so they are attached to the card.  I did it this way to make it look like it's flying in the breeze!
 

Stamps:  Perfectly Preserved

Ink:  Early Espresso Classic Pad; Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, & Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Markers

Paper:  Early Espresso, More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, & Very Vanilla card stock; Orchard Harvest DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Cannery Set Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Finishing Touches Edgelits, Fancy Fan Impressions Folder, & Stampin' Dimensionals
