I love the way stampers share ideas. I have found that joining the Online Card Classes is a great way to get inspired and share techniques. They always have great instructors and everyone shares photos of what they create. 

This week of classes is all about Christmas, my favorite holiday!  Here are a few cards from the first couple of classes.


CARD #1: Merry Christmas Snowflakes
Technique:  I embossed snowflakes with silver and white onto watercolor cardstock. I used Dare 2B Artzy reinkers with water as my paint to wash over the background. The embossed images worked as a resist. Once dry, I added a few white gel pen dots for added snowflakes. I cut a curved edge on a piece of white cardstock then rubbed my versamark pad along the edge and used silver emboss to highlight the edge. This is a little hard to see in the photo but it looks great. The sentiment from the Ornament Tangle stamp set is straight but since they are made out of photopolymer, you can curve the stamp to match the curve in your paper.  I popped up the wight snow base to add dimension.
Supplies:  Dare 2B Artzy stamps Snowflake Wishes and Ornament Tangle, reinkers from our new Premium Inks (wild orchid, midnight blue and paradise), watercolor paper, silver and white embossing powder, versamark pad.


CARD #2: Fill Your Stockings with Blessings
Technique:  Love this CAS technique because I discovered one more reason to use my scoreboard.  Mask off the top inch of the cardstock. Use a sponge applicator with D2BA Pomegranite Red ink to add texture and color to the top of the card. Then line up the edge of the red and make a score line. Flip the paper over and make added, random, score lines down the rest of the white cardstock.  Stamp your stockings with D2BA Premium inks and use the matching dies to punch them out. Oops, I forgot to add red stickles to the holly before I took the photo. Add brads and twine to hang your stockings.  If you turn this card horizontal you will be able to fit 5 stockings on your card.
Supplies:  D2BA Premium Inks (midnight blue, pomegranite red, margarita lime), Family Stockings stamp set, scoreboard, twine and brads.


CARD #3:  Peace on Earth
Technique: CAS (clean and simple). This did not really match the class instruction except that we were focusing on clean and elegant along with embossing.  Use a swirl die to cut out a piece of white cardstock. Lay it on your versamark pad and make sure you cover the entire swirl. Use gold embossing powder to create this beautiful swirl. Use our new Ornament Tangle set to stamp and emboss the ornament onto red cardstock. Fussy cut the ornament out and pop it up on your card and add a bow.
Supplies: D2BA Ornament Tangle stamp set, swirl die, gold embossing powder, versamark pad, ribbon, red and green cardstock.

Thanks to Online Card Classes for all your great tips and techniques.

To my visitors...come back soon for some more inspiration and have a blessed weekend!

All your cards are wonderful! I especially like the one with the stockings. Neat idea to use the inked portion as a "shelf"! I love the elegant look of your third card, too. Tfs! ~ Andrea

deeply obsessed with her any mind then can be lost very distant. Evening sky reveals a deep, see of, the more feel comfortable in doping in a somewhat depressed. On the ground, the rain, the grass field of vision extends to the end, over there is a large soybean land, full of beans bowed his head, look at this trend in the near future, it will be pulled Zhigan bent over to kiss intimate contact earth. Jiduo beautiful white flowers on a blue Gege Bu slowly across, wandering flocks of homing pigeons to land, air gradually filled with a little smoke into the practical sense.

His gaze pulled from near the vast sky, watching the head of that column of smoke, a silent sigh. Although the scenery is not how, but look down on the head down, just ignite a small fire inside the cupola is still very busy very gratifying. Flames blocked by thick corn cobs, can only see a piece of the black and red from the outside.He picked up a large palm-leaf fan forced toward the mouth, so that the dying flames quickly revive interest, to take a narrow space, so he had time to look at while the novel - Only then did he realize the friends to indulge in the kind of torture suffered novel unable to stop. Prior to his friends ridiculed novel and sleepless nights, now it appears to be how superficial view ah!

A dinette down, scattering to the surrounding fire out of that weak coward wing began to be forced to gather inside, and corn on the cob on a dim star point has sent a bright fire, whistling Liao Liao, unpredictable, swinging indefinite. Like in Charge, yes, she is in Charge. Look, this has just been pushed down the moment flame head like a savage beasts, ignited residual "ammunition" and shoved rushed over to the hole, and now she is indeed to all captured here. If there is no black four weeks this cage to imprison her, troops continued the periphery of its more fertile land revenue in the bag, it is not without possible!

After this time the blitzkrieg, behind the chimney smoke inside the blink of an eye has been replaced by smoke. He turned and stepped back, took the bench, turn off that had a completely novel toward the world ......
