Joyful Christmas sample-6

 

I featured this stamp set, Joyful Christmas, at a stamp club a couple weeks ago and this is one of the cards we made.  

I really, really love it!  The colors are soft and peaceful and the watercolored poinsettias contribute nicely.  

Supplies used:

Stamps – Joyful Christmas, Background Builders, Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit, En Francais

Ink & Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Crisp Cantaloupe, Versamark, Crumb Cake

Accessories – white embossing powder, dimensionals, burlap ribbon (or use linen thread)

TTFN!

CCMCWINTER13-01sample

 

Week 1 of our Winter Collection just wrapped up over at Create With Connie Mary!  The entire week was dedicated to card “create” tions and I now have some awesome inspiration for a lot of the Christmas stamp sets Stampin’Up! offers!  The designers did a great job!

As always, we end the week with a challenge – and we’d love for you to participate!!  The sketch challenge is above – here’s what I was inspired to make:

CCMCWinter13-01

 

I stayed pretty true to the sketch design so this came together in a snap!  I used the Joyful Christmas stamp set and stamped the poinsettia image with Crumb Cake just off to the left of my cardstock piece.  I then inked the sentiment image with Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler markers – the words really stand out nicely against the faint poinsettia image.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Joyful Christmas

Ink & Paper – Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Season of Style DSP

Accessories – 1/8″ taffeta ribbon

Hop on over to Create With Connie & Mary and see what the other designers made with this sketch and then try the challenge for yourself!!

TTFN!

Joyful Christmas sample-5

 

The third and final card for stamp club last night where I featured the Joyful Christmas stamp set.  This card is a direct CASE of a card from demonstrator Melissa Davies – you can see her card here.

I used the stained glass technique to make the poinsettia by stamping the image onto vellum cardstock, embossing with gold powder and then coloring with markers on the backside.  I also embossed the sentiment on the front.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Joyful Christmas

Ink & Paper – Old Olive, Whisper White, vellum cardstock, markers:   Real Red, Rose Red, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz

Accessories – Big Shot & Delicate Designs embossing folder

TTFN!

This week’s stamp club is going to work with the Joyful Christmas stamp set!  All this week, I’ll be sharing the three cards that I have designed to showcase this wonderful set!

TTFN!

Joyful Christmas sample-2

 

It’s time to announcement the details of my 10th Annual Christmas Card Class – I’ve only been working on them for 4 weeks or so now!  🙂

As in passed years, I have prepared 10 cards as well as a WOW project to be made at this all day class!  This is the first card for this class I’m sharing here – watch for the remaining cards to be shared over the next few weeks!

This card features the wonderful Joyful Christmas stamp set available in the Holiday Catalogue as well as the gold foil paper.  The colors I used for the poinsettia are Real Red and Gumball Green and the images have been embossed with white embossing powder and then cut out and layered.  The pearl accents just finish the flower off nicely!

If you are in or near Calgary, I invite you to attend!  The dates you can choose from for this class are:

Saturday, October 19th from 10 – 4 OR Saturday, November 2nd from 10 – 4

If you would like more information, please contact me at nzandbergen@shaw.ca

TTFN!
