Metallic embossed dots

Yet another fun embossing folder technique that I will be sharing in my January Fast and Fun Technique class.  I learned this technique from my cousin, Angela about 6 months ago at a Stamp camp.  It is super easy with stunning results.

Fun with the Fairy

Finally got to play with my Stamping Bella fairy.  She will be one of the cards at my January Fast and Fun technique class. 

Not the best photo.  Can you tell that her wings and tiara are shimmery?  Also I will be showing the class how they can turn any embossing folder into a frame.  Fun and easy!!

Here are the cards that were swapped at the December SU swap club.

 Heather cleverly used a flower punch to make the bows on her presents above.

 Jen did some fun layered embossing polka dots for her card.

 Shirley used her Honey Pop set to make a super cute holiday card.

Judy used some fun embossing and a punch window for her holiday card.

Hero Arts Catalog Party

I was lucky to be able to attend the Hero Arts Catalog party at the Hen House on Monday night.  The weather was aweful and I still had a bit of a stomach ache but it was well worth the trip.  Here is the make-n-take that Kathy did...

Absolutely delicious!  We got to play with background stamps and COPICs.

Here is the make-n-take that Charlene did....

Fun with distress inks and bling.  I just love the key background stamp too.

Here are the stamps that I just had to have...

This one with with the matching embossing folder will be used to make a card for my January 14, Fast and Fun Technique class.
I just love the house and flower with the text on them.  Can't wait to play with different inks and layering.

This last one will be used in my Fast and Fun Technique Class too. Stamps sets with matching dies are all the rage nowadays!

Janea's projects

On Saturday, I went to the monthly SU swap club and Janea taught us some cool tricks.  First we learned how to turn the Christmas stocking stamp/punch into baby booties!  I love learning how to use my tools in new ways!

We also made a shaker card using SU's new shaker card circles.  They can to transformed to almost any shape.

De"light"ful gift card holder

I used a new Sizzix embossing folder to make the pocket trim of this gift card holding card. This will most likely be the second card in the January Fast and Fun Technique class.

 This is the inside of the card.

Stampingbella mania!

Look at the super duper stamps that I got at the Hen House yesterday!  I just love them.  I can't wait to use my copics or Prismacolor pencils to bring these little ladies to life...

Working on Fast and Fun for January

I'd like to change my Fast and Fun Four Class to Fast and Fun Technique starting in January.  For January, the technqiue highlighted will be embossing folders.   The first card will use the new Hero Arts Textured Impression sets.  They come with a stamp and matching embossing folder.  Here is a sample I made today.  Lots of fun and really fast.

Can you see how the flowers, butterfly and "friend" is raised?
