Craft Project Central sketch challenge #17

This is the card I made for the sketch challenge over at  I used an Early Espresso base.  The Very Vanilla strip is embossed using the Northern Flurry embossing folder then edged with the Scallop Trim border in Cherry Cobbler.  The snowflakes are punched with the new Champagne Glimmer paper in the Holiday Mini and attached to the front with pop dots.  I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set for the greeting and embossed it with Pewter embossing powder.  I layered it on Cherry Cobbler and attached it to the left side.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Technique class.....

This Friday evening I'm having my very first technique class.  When I saw this card on CPC I knew I just had to make it.  What an absolute fun card to put together.  The Faux Fossil Technique was so much fun to do and I know the ladies will love it also. 

I used Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and a smidgeon of Crumb Cake.  The Oak leaves are cut with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die using VV card stock.  The Fossil Technique is done on the leaves, everything is inked with Early Espresso and layered on the card base.  I dyed White Taffeta Ribbon Always Artichoke to match  and added a Naturals Designer Button.  The stamp sets are Everything Eleanor and Kindness Matters. 

I can't wait to teach this class.

Christmas card class.....

These are the three cards we made in my Christmas Card class a few weeks ago.  The first is a case from Sage Kimble.  I just love this card.  I used white embossing powder and Whisper White, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler card stock then tied a knot using the Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The Cherry Cobbler layer is embossed using the Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  The layers make this card so elegant. 

The card in the middle is a case also but I don't know from what blog.  I love the simplicity of the card.  I used Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake card stock.  I layered the stamped image (Traditional Touches) under a layer of Crumb Cake embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, using the Framelit Die to frame the image.  Tied a knot using Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon and the card was finished.  I did pop dot the embossed layer to add dimension. Easy peasy!

The last card was a case from the Holiday Mini.  Instead of using a frame, I just changed up the card stock and made it into a card.  The embossed tree on velum gives it an airy look.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card stock.  The Lacy Brocade embossing folder gives the card it's texture and the Champagne Glimmer paper adds the sparkle.  Love it!

Note cards......

This is one of the note cards we made in my class last month.  We did a bundle of six for the class.  I wish I could take full credit for the design but unfortunately I can't.  This is yet another project from CPC.  All the ladies loved this class and have plans on making several sets for holiday gift giving.    I

I used Midnight Muse for the card base.  The liner is Very Vanilla with a Finishing Touches Edgelit border.   The DSP is the Natural Composition Specialty paper.  I used the Tasteful Trims die to make the scallop on the left, adding small pearls to each scallop for texture.  The oval is VV and stamped with Crumb Cake and Midnight Muse using the Everything Eleanor and the Broadshreet Alphabet stamps sets.   The Crumb Cake layer is embossed using the Holiday Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the knot is Stitched Satin Ribbon in Midnight Muse.  Although this project uses a lot of SU products, it was a fun and easy card to make.  Thanks for taking a peek!
