Today I am going back into the archives to show you some of the cards we made at my October Christmas Card Stamp-a-Stack! These were all swaps I received at Founder's Circle in September that I either CASED exactly or added my own little twist!

This card was a favorite, using the Holiday Mini Catalog Level 2 Hostess set, Peaceful Season! The inside verse is from the Level 3 Hostess set, Occasional Quotes!

For this card I used the oldie-but-goodie, Winter Post! The picture doesn't do it justice, but after the card was completely assembled we gave it a light spritz with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz! The inside verse is from another oldie-but-goodie Christmas verse set, Many Merry Messages!

The snowflakes have the Metallic Brads attached through a Paper Pierced hole and the legs are turned down, then the snowflakes are attached to the card with Mini Glue-dots!

Here's how we attached the ribbon on the back of the skaters:

This card uses the fun new clear-mount alphabet, Broadsheet Alphabet! The inner verse is from another favorite and often used set, God's Blessings!

Here's how we ruffled the satin ribbon under the "noel":

First we laid down 1"-1 1/2" of Sticky Strip on the Early Espresso cardstock strip. We then removed the red plastic protective covering to expose the stickiness.

We trimmed off the end of our 5/8" Old Olive Satin ribbon with the Craft & Paper Scissors, then attached the end of the ribbon to the end of the Sticky Strip. We did not attach the ribbon to the entire length of the strip.

November 2010 093

We pinched up the ribbon into a small fold and then pressed down about a fingertip width of ribbon to attach again to the sticky strip.

November 2010 095

We repeated this process a second time to make a second fold in our ribbon. At this point we clipped off the ribbon and layered the punched "noel" letters. If you desire you can put a Mini Glue-dot between the folds to help them lay down.

If all goes as planned I will be back tomorrow to show you how we made a Textured Impressions Christmas Tree!

 

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!


Since I've been an absent blogger so much the past couple of months I thought I would show you some of my projects during that time. I've been CRAZY BUSY with workshops, camps, and craft fairs, which is the major reason I haven't been blogging. These pics are the doorprize Christmas cards from the Mt Vernon Teacher's Conference October:

Until then, have a Stampingrox! Day!
