Oh me, oh my!

Oh me, oh my!  I did not realize that it's been so very long since I've posted onto my blog!  The last few months I've been in a bit of a funk.  Have you ever been in a funk?  Probably.  My funk has completely affected my creativity.  Hoping it ends real soon!

I have been busy and holding classes.  Here are the cards we made at my Christmas Card Stash Class this past Friday.  They are cased from fellow talented demonstrators or directly from the Stampin' Up! magazine that every demonstrator receives bi-monthly.

I love the look of this card!  The idea was taken directly from the Stampin' Success Magazine sent to demonstrators by Stampin' Up!  I'll admit that the pine leaves are a bit of a pain to get cut using the Big Shot and the coordinating die cut set, but they are so worth it when you see the finished card.  I promise!  You can order the Christmas Pines bundle (and save 15%) by going to my online store.

This card was tweaked from a design shared in another Stampin' Success Magazine.  (See, being a demonstrator doesn't mean you have to come up with your own designs!)  You can see the stamp set here.  It's called Time of Year and is one of the wonderful hostess sets in the catalog. The paper is called This Christmas and is a specialy paper.  

Yet again, I cased this card from a Stampin' Success Magazine.  The original design was made using the note cards w/envelopes, so I adjusted the size to make a 4-1/4"x5-1/2" card.  This BIG-word stamp set, Wonderful Year, from the Holiday catalog makes the quickest cards.  

This beautiful card was designed by a fellow demonstrator, Linda Bedinger.  Her card was made using Cherry Cobbler and Gold, but I love the look of the Night of Navy with Silver.  This stamp set has a coordinating framelit set also.  You can find the Star of Light bundle here.  I gave a couple options for the wording.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!  I hope to be much quicker with the next post.
