All Day 3d Frame Class for Christmas using Stampin' Up! products

Today's post is all about my All Day 3d Frame Class I am holding in December. The class runs on 3 days - the 6th, 8th or 9th December so there should be a day to suit everyone ;-). It will run from 9.30 - 2.30 on each day to give you plenty of time to design and chat too without worrying!
This class is truly a chance to create something unique for your home. Included in the just £20 cost will be a whole pack of Under the Tree speciality DSP and the frame of course plus a little bag of embellishments (buttons, charms etc.) then you will be welcome to use any of the ribbons, stamps and dies I have!
Here is my first sample and I'm working on another so you can copy any of my squares or design all your own for this class. 
Here are just a few close up's of some of the squares...
 Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon bow with a snowflake charm too
a simple punched star wreath
  gold heat embossed wooden leaves
  and paper pieced and coloured trees (from the non-Christmas set; Life in the Forest)
 sequin covered punched trees
and a side view to finish today!
Reserve your place today but definitely before the 24th November to ensure your kit is here ready for you.
I hope you can make it for a day of fun and laughter to get in the creative festive spirit and I look forward to hearing from you soon :-)

Endless Wishes by Stampin' Up! Modern Christmas Card


It's Sunday and I'm off to the Craft and Gift Fayre at the Waterside Theatre, Holbury (SO45) so if you're in the area please stop by and say Hi! I have just a few free give-aways for the first people to come in too...

OK, let's get onto today's card. This is another class card and I love the non-traditional colour combo of  Crisp Cantaloupe and Night of Navy...
 LOVE this thick twine,
Todays TopTip 1: We added the top layers with foam pads as the twine is thick around the back then your card sits nice and flat :-)
We finished with Dazzling Details Silver Glitter Glue on the snowflakes for sparkle in addition to the sequins you see above ;-)
Top Tip 2: Assemble your card and then add the glitter glue right at the end, then leave flat to dry.
Before I go today a last reminder to book for the Christmas Frame Class by 6pm tomorrow (Monday 24th November). 
Last few places left for Monday 8th December to make this ...
Right, that's all from me for today,
I'll be back tomorrow with more cards, hopefully I'll see some of you at the Fayre!
Thanks for looking! Stampin' hugs,

Holiday Home by Stampin' up! Christmas Card.

Good Morning!
And Happy Saturday to you! It's a wet and horrid day here and yes, I am actually up at 7 something on a Saturday. I had to drive into town to take my eldest to the train station for 6.30 this morning!! Yuk! I'm soo not a morning person ;-)

Anyway, every cloud and all that! So the benefits of being up this early is I can blog for you and then I still have a load of things to do to get ready for the Craft Fayre on Sunday so I can start that next! If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter then you would have seen a few of my preparations on there. This is a great way of seeing what I'm up to on the days I don't get a chance to blog and I'd love if you joined me on your favourite social media ;-)
OK, I want to quickly remind you if you are interested in joining me for my Christmas Frame Class the last day to register is Monday. I have spaces on Monday 8th December only now and I would love if you could join us for some festive, crafting fun!
 So, onto today's card! I must tell you this is not one of my own designs, I've seen a few versions of this card around on the www. Anyway, I just loved it and simply "needed" to make my own version of one too!
 I made mine a Christmas version so we tied the house in Cherry Cobbler bakers twine to make it a gift and added a Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper star to decorate
 All the stamps are from the set including this sweet sentiment. Plus if you purchase the Stamps and Dies together you get 15% off too, making it just £28.75 for both.
 So, do you like today's card? Fancy giving it a go too?  This is a class card, so the kind of thing we make in my Stamp-a-Stack classes each month (We make fewer, more technique based cards at my other class the opposite fortnight of each month also), so if you fancy coming along to a class please drop me a line and I'll get you booked in! {I'm in SO45, right on the edge of the New Forest}
Thanks as ever for looking today and I hope you liked the card.
Stampin' Hugs from me for today,

Christmas Card using Get Your Santa On By Stampin' up!

Hello there,
I have a Christmas card for you today using the super sweet Get Your Santa on stamp set. This set is so easy to colour on Crumb Cake or Kraft card with either blender pens and ink pads (as I've used here) or Blendies (Blendabilities). If you want to have a closer look you could pop along to the Craft Fayre on Sunday at Waterside Club in Holbury (SO45) where I will have a stand :-)
So, today's card... 
I used the lovely (and very under used by me!) Polaroid style frame die from the On Film set of framelits to make this card.
 I die cut and inked the frame then adhered it to the card...
... before stamping this Santa inside and coloured him with blender pens and ink pads. The snowflakes were added afterwards using sticky notes to mask off the frame.
 This cute sentiment is included in the set, I used the cut out section from the centre of the frame, trimmed to 1cm high and stamped the sentiment onto this before trimming and stapling to the bottom of the frame
 I used white craft ink for Santa's fur trim but went with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for his beard :-)
a Pear Pizazz cotton ribbon bow around the top with glimmer paper punched stars 
 and a side view to finish. I adhered the frame flat for posting :-)
Well,  I hope you liked today's card?
I'll be back tomorrow with another card, thanks for stopping by :-)
Stampin' Hugs,
