A Witch for My Stamp Ten Classes!

A few weeks ago I showed you a card made by my friend Maria, it was a witch similar to this one. Well everyone liked her so much we made one this month at the stamp ten classes in my studio. My version was a card and started with a top note card front. You can create a card by folding the card stock in half and placing folded edge slightly below the cutting edge of the die. Run it through the big shot and you you have a top note shaped card!


Paper- Whisper white, Basic black, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive

Easiest Christmas card Ever

Such an easy card with the bigshot and our new punch!

Stamp A stack Card

Another beauty from convention this card was designed by Elaine Carter.

A Christmas Card!

Another card from my stamp a stack!

I saw a similar card at convention and was mesmerized with the concept of creating a wreath from the pine bough of the autumn days stamp set! Because I never met the artist I set about figuring out how to making it . It really was not that hard I started with stamping the sentiment in the center of the card stock. I then made a mask/template with a large oval punch and a post it note. I then drew six lines to guide me as I stamped so the pine boughs were evenly spaced. I then use a Always Artichoke stampin write marker to filling any pine needles needed to create a full wreath. Lastly I colored over the pine cones with Creamy Carmel and Soft Suede stampin Write markers


A witch like no other!

I received this witch at convention from my friend Maria Lemo! Isn't she wickedly adorable!
We will be making her at the October stamp ten groups so I will wait to tell you the directions in early next month. But just wanted you to see How stink'in cute the witch is. Thanks Maria!

Thanks for Looking Virginia!
