December Technique Class

December Technique Class Wednesday, December 1 at 10:00 a.m. or Thursday, December 2 at 6:30 p.m.

We'll make these four cards...

This adorable Santa was CASE'd from my friend Mary Rindal, and the original idea came from Heather Hampton Freeman.

By request of our December Stamp Club hostess, we will line and decorate the inside of this card as well. I'll discuss a few easy ways to dress-up the inside of your cards as well.

We're using the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper and the Good Cheer Stamp Set....We'll using the Poppin' Pastels Technique and the lovely Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, finishing with one of Stampin' Up!'s great new glitter brads. You may choose to distress and roll the edges of your image or leave it as is.

This is a fun variation on Emboss Resist that was presented by Shannon West at the Fort Worth Stampin' Up! Regionals. I even used the same stamp set she did but used MOJO Monday Sketch 160 (MOJO160) for the layout.

This card is a CASE of my friend Janine Tinklenberg's awesome Reverse Masking Come to Bethlehem card.  I changed the colors (because we've already used Concord Crush with this set) and layout (just a bit), but the coolness is all JanTInk!
