For the Birds Christmas Card

The weeks are just flying by, aren't they? I am a little shocked that Thanksgiving is already next week! With the holidays fast approaching, I thought I'd pop on and share a Christmas card I made! I used the For the Birds set by Stampin' Up! Here it is:

All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: For the Birds set
Ink: Basic Black (pad), Real Red, Marina Mist, Gumball Green, Pear Pizazz, So Saffron (markers)
Paper: Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla Cardstock; Festival of Prints DSP stack
Accessories: White Signo gel pen, Gumball Green Sweater trim

The patterned paper that I chose from the Festival of Prints stack was so crisp, I decided to keep my stamping crisp and clean, too. I colored the bird with my Stampin' Up! markers and added some white with the White Signo gel pen. I don't think it turned out too bad for my first Christmas card of the season! :)

Hope you are enjoying your day! Thanks for stopping by!

My New Class Series- Feast Layout

Good Morning!

I am teaching a new class down at Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg! It is a technique based layout class and I will be focusing on a new product, technique or style each month. This month we will be playing with mists! With so many different brands on the market, I'll show you what the main differences are while creating two new layouts! Here is one of the samples from my class:

And here are a few shots of the details:

This layout features the new Color Shine mists by Heidi Swapp. They are beautiful and so shimmery! This one- Gold Lame is my favorite! It went wonderfully with the pictures of last year's Thanksgiving feast! My sister put out quite the spread- here she is with her beautiful turkey, fresh from the oven. My favorite of the day though was her cupcakes! She decorated them to look like Thanksgiving dinner!  So cute and they tasted even better then they looked. :)

I am really excited for this new opportunity to teach! If you are in the area, I hope you can join me! For more information on the class, please check out my post on the Scrapdoodles Blog.
