So, the last time I posted, I showed you a card, inspired by the Holiday Catalog, where I cut out the presents. Remember? Well today, I am going to share with you 2 cards using old DSP. Check out this one…. Now, the Santa image came from Designer Series Paper from a couple of years ago. Maybe last year. Not sure! LOL
I did use Holly Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Greetings from Santa stamp set as far as current product is concerned. The ribbon is on sale right now!! Don’t miss out on that deal!
Here’s the next card. The Rudolf image came from the same DSP pack as the Santa image in the above. I also used some retired Washi Tape. The sentiment also came from the Greetings from Santa stamp set. I think this card came out cute too! What do you think?
So, this whole return to stamping came from a different customer (than yesterday’s post) messaging me on Facebook. “Will you do a workshop for me?” Of course I will! This workshop was held in late October. She wanted to do a scrapbook page and a card. The projected I created were pretty simple but time consuming. I decided to cut most of the pieces for the ladies since I only had one set of the Pretty Pines Thinlets. I also used the Large Numbers Thinlets too!
Well, this workshop started well, as it always does. Then suddenly, it went downhill. For some reason, the pine boughs wouldn’t cut right. I even had wax paper with me just in case this would happen. For some reason, that didn’t work out well either. UGH!! Help me! They got pretty impatient and just used the pine boughs that they were given.
The second project, this adorable card below came right out of the Holiday Catalog. I like to do that for one of the projects because it shows them that they can get inspiration from anywhere, especially the Holiday Catalog. When I did the card, it took me 5 minutes to put the entire card together from start to finish! At the workshop, yeah.. it took forever!! I am pretty sure that I either broke my Big Shot or they did. I haven’t had any problems cutting before or after! Just there. Maybe it was bad “juju.”
After recovering my complete embarrassment, with the help of some amazing German cakes, they then turned around and said, “So, would you be open to doing a scrapbook club?” REALLY! *perks up* Of course I would! We haven’t started the club yet, I am thinking after the holidays are all over!
