Peppermint Snowmen

For some reason, I didn't get around to posting these cute ornaments I made last year. They were the most popular item at the last craft fair I attended. I used strictly punches, a little bit of hot glue and string. Aren't they adorable? I charged just 25 cents for each one. What would you have charged?

Christmas Stamp-a-Stack 2009

Stamp-a-stacks are a lot of work, but certainly worth the effort! As I was preparing for this year's Christmas class, I realized I had more than enough stamp sets to work with. Originally, I was going to do 20 cards, 4 designs of 5 cards. Instead, my customers did 20 cards, 5 designs of 4 cards. I love how each of them turned out!!! In fact, one of them will be my personal Christmas card, just using different colors. This card was not made by me. In fact, my upline sent it as a swap last year. I decided to incorporate it into the class for a few reasons: (1) To highlight the use of blender pens with ink or watercolor pencils and (2) I loved the different fold.

This card is so simple, yet so elegant. I couldn't help but CASE (copy and share everything) this from Josee Smuck's blog.

Although there is a Christmas greeting on this card, it really can be used for any occasion.
I have to thank this wonderful demonstrators blog for this CASE.

I sure am glad I ordered this set and punch. Coordinating punches are awesome!

My husband thought this card was too busy, but I liked how it looks.

Super fast birthday cards...

It's been awhile since I've done a birthday card stamp-a-stack and I realized I was running out of kids cards. This week I spent some time creating a few birthday cards using the stamp set Animal Stories. The coordinating 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper matches perfectly!
