Happy Saturday - well what is left of it.. Hope you all managed to get up to something nice as it has certainly been a fabulous day weather wise - definitely non-seasonal temperatures for us here, for Halloween..
and Me? Have spent a fabulous day crafting with another local demonstrator - we were with a lovely group of ladies all making Christmas cards of various designs - but concentrating on the, in my opinion must have 'Home for Christmas' series with its beautiful vintage inspired Designer series paper, toning card stock and related stamp sets, with a few accent pieces from a few others of the holiday season sets...
I had made quite a few samples for the class and ended up with a couple of particular favourites and cannot say enough about Stampin' Up!'s Glimmer paper - it is just the best -
but trying to photograph it to its best advantage is proving a challenge - so have passed that over to himself - so am hoping I will have something I can show you tomorrow!
In the meantime my post today is a mono-chrome card we made as an exercise in stamping and how to use the Stamp-a-majig for perfect positioning - works like magic, if its something you have never seen before, which was the case with my stampin' buddy today.
I ended up with a single layer card - well apart from the accent bow! so thought I would enter it in the current ''Wild card choice" challenge JUGS #317 over at 'Just us Girls'! where they want to see just that.. single layer designs.
I was very pleased with how it turned out, as was she.
We used Santa and his sleigh from 'Cozy Christmas', the bow, was die-cut from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits set , the holly border came from the Embellished ornaments set and the sentiment from Sassy Salutations.. all placed exactly were we wanted with the help of the Stamp-a-majig - a brilliant accessory in my book!
Must admit - it did look as if we needed something to finish it all off so decided on just adding a border line and the 3 rhinestones to set it all off.
and inside - 2 more repeats of the holly border again placed with the help of the stamp-a-majig..
what do you all think?
Stampin' Up! Supplies Used
Well will hopefully be back sometime soon with a few of the samples for today's class if himself has managed to come up with some reasonable photos.
Until next time and happy crafting.
