Christmas

Hello everyone! These are the other two cards from my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack card class the other night. The first card uses hardly any stamping at all and the idea for this card was from my very talented Sweet Sunday Sketch team member Vicki Burdick, please click on her name and visit Vicki's blog you won't be sorry she has some amazing stamping projects!

The base of this card is Handsome Hunter with an embossed Petals-a-Plenty panel of Real Red, I used the Eyelet border punch for along the bottom of the red panel and tied on a piece of red gingham ribbon. The poinsettia flower was created by punching one Handsome Hunter 5 petal flower and two Real Red flowers out and layering them together. The center of the flower is a large brad covered with a glue dot then dipped in yellow glitter, the whole flower is then layered on top of a white 1 3/8" square punched piece and a Handsome Hunter mat. The be merry is from the stamp set Warm Words and punched out and layered with the large and small oval punches. Thank you Vicki for the wonderful idea!

























The last card from the class was cased by another very talented stamper Pam Speidel, the only thing I did different to this card was to add a stamped strip of Kraft and Whisper White paper to the bottom of the card and I used red ribbon. When I saw this card on Pam's blog I instantly loved it and thought it would be perfect for my Stamp-a-Stack class. This card uses the Dasher stamp, the snowflake from the Snow Swirled set and the Merry Christmas from retired stamps set All Year Cheer III.

Thank you Pam for all of your inspiration!

I really admire both Vicki and Pam and enjoy visiting their blogs and seeing their beautiful cards and projects.
