Stretch Your Christmas Supplies Further, Class Card. Hearts Come Home stamps and dies.

Hello there,
How are you doing? Are you ready for Christmas yet? I have quite a lot done but I'm sure there's loads I've forgotten, still to do :-0
OK, so I ran my last class of the year last week and as I find that I tend to put away a lot of my Christmas stash after the main event but I wanted to share that perhaps you shouldn't automatically do that.
So this week's class was designed to show how you can stretch your Christmas supplies further.
 I started with the Hearts Come Home stamps and die set to make both a Christmas card and also a  New Home card, see...
 So, here's a closer look at the Christmas version. This is the more typical card you would imagine making with these dies. I also used some of the bokeh paper from the Christmas 'All Is Bright' DSP pack which I stamped with the snowflake from Beautiful Blizzard using matching coloured ink.
 Of course I added a heap of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the houses and along the top edge because well, it's Christmas! Sentiment is from the coordinating Hearts Come Home stamp set and I layered both cards with some Coastal Cabana card under the Sahara Sand paper layer to give it a little pop.
 So, onto the "non-festive" card, made with the same supplies, give or take.
I used the same paper from the All Is Bright DSP pack but didn't stamp over it this time, simply adding the Hometown Edgelits die cut houses across the bottom again. I also added a crumb cake house to the top of one and covered it using the fine tip glue pen to create a glossy finish to highlight the house.
I adhered the Hometown Edgelit die cut using Tombow glue, which is such a great adhesive as once it's stuck it's not going anywhere but you still have wriggle time to get it right in the beginning. 
This sentiment is from the "At Home With You" stamp set and a few sequins from my stash.
So, what  you think? Have I inspired you to keep your Christmas stash out, or at least somewhere closer to your craft desk, yet??
Hopefully I have and you too may get more use from your Christmas stash than just keeping them for once a year!
If you are still not sure please do check back tomorrow for another pair of cards using more Christmas stash and one make will definately be a non-festive one...
'Till then, happy stamping!
