A belated birthday!

Happy birthday to my great friend and Stampin' Up! mum Alex! I had about 5 minutes to make this card before dragging myself to bed after a mammoth crafting session preparing for Convention - but I managed to impress even myself with how it turned out! Hope she likes it too.

October Card Class

My monthly class was last night and again we made Christmas cards, using four different stamp sets from the Autumn Winter Catalogue.

We used Letterpress Winter, adding a snowflake embellishment for an extra special touch...

Next up was White Christmas. A really calm, snowy scene - using sponges to create a soft wintery sunset sky...

The third card was a nice simple one using Cheerful Christmas. I showed the ladies how they can use the blendabilities pens to colour the pearls to create their little red berries...

And for the last card, I horrified my ladies by making them use the Visions of Santa stamp set. If you don't know it - it's the one with the strange skinny-legged, hairy santas prancing around in their long johns!!

Well I must say I didn't get a great reaction from this card, but sometimes you just don't know unless you have a go. I actually really like this set, its funny and quirky and I love using the blendabilities pens to colour them in. It's definitely one to give a chance to!!

What do you think?

I have been playing with the set a lot and I will be adding more projects to my blog in the coming weeks...
