In Class - October 2013

I am super grateful to Lisa Taylor for opening up her home and accommodating us for all again for class this month.  With the festive season just around the corner I thought it would be fun to have a Christmas card theme this session.

For this first card I wanted to go back to basics and show a design that could be put together quickly and easily in bulk if need be.
Stamps: 122652 Delightful Dozen, 130297 Happy Day.
Card: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Paper: 132181 Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: 101406 StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad, 126975 Crumb Cake
Embellishments: 132140 Burlap Ribbon, 124262 Bakers Twine Whisper White
Punches: 119869 1/2" Circle punch

This second design features the other pattern available in the Season of Style DSP stack.  I've white washed it here to lighten it slightly to allow the gold heat embossed doily and burlap ribbon strip to stand out more.
Stamps: 120024 Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White
Paper: 132181 Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink: 126953 Old Olive, 102283 VersaMark
Embellishments: 132140 Burlap Ribbon, 129399 Tea Lace Doilies

For our third project I shied away from the browns and golds and went for a silver instead.  By special request we practiced brayering ink directly onto embossing folders and running them through the Big Shot to achieve the two toned background.  A 3D star featured prominently on the front.
