Sorry for being away so long. As usual, it's been a bit hectic at Casa Mongeon. Tonight being Halloween, I figured I'd better get a post up for November 1.
We have been so busy - me with Stamp Classes, Stamp Camps and Workshops...Emily and Jacob with school activities (church school, boy scouts, etc...) and Ed with LEAVES. Did you know there are exactly 25 maple trees in my back yard? I kid you not. It's a PITA in the fall...for those who don't speak code, that would be Pain In The A....). My poor hubby has spent HOURS upon HOURS out there every weekend. It is definitley a priority to take a few of these trees out in the spring!
Anyway, I am in my stamp room creating the cards that my Stamp Group will be making this month. It's November, and it's time to get working on the HOLIDAY CARDS!
Each month I have stampers over who make 4 cards (2 designs, 2 of each). Each month we focus on different occasions. We love to have new people join us, so if you would like to stamp with a great bunch of gals (and have me for your instructor) then drop me a note. I need a few days notice if you are joining us so that I can prepare the proper amount of materials. :0)
The groups gather on the 1st Tuesday evening of the month at 7 PM, and another groups meets the 2nd Saturday of the month at 10 AM.
Ok, onto the cards.
The first one uses the stamp set Welcome Christmas. I love the Vintage feel to this set. It reminds me of old time Christmases (like when I was a kid...I guess that makes me "vintage" too...LOL).
The cardstock base is Early Espresso. The layer is Cherry Cobbler, embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper folder. The holly swag is stamped in Always Artichoke, and Cherry Cobbler berries were made with the marker. The family is stamped in Early Espresso and the greeting is Cherry Cobbler. A few gold brads in each corner, and some sponging add to the vintage feel.
The next one is using the set Greeting Card Kids. I call them the Campbell Soup Kids. LOL
I just love all the images, but the little girl pulling the tree in her sled is my favorite!
The cardstock base is Baja Breeze, embossed with the Norther Frost Embossing folder.
Strips of Whisper white cardstock are torn for the snow. Simply run the 2 way glue across the edge and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds glitter! So pretty!
Our little girl is stamped in Jet Black Stazon, and colored in using Blender Pens. The ink Colors are Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Old Olive for the tree. The snowflake at the top is cut from the Northern Flurry Die Cut, and I added a Riding hood Red punched flower to the center, with one of our new adhesive Rhinestones. So cute!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a Happy Halloween~
