Sharing November Class & Club Projects!

This month in my classes and stamp club, we made more great projects focusing on the up-coming Christmas holiday!  It's always a challenge to focus only on a stamp set or two so as to not overwhelm.

This adorable card was one that I received as a swap at OnStage 2017 in Salt Lake earlier this month. It uses the wonderful designer series paper called Christmas Around the World from the Holiday Catalog and the stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas from the Annual Catalog.  The original was made by my friend Diana Tillery (aka the Celtic Stamper).  She had used a toothpick for the banner holder and a Real Red bow-tie instead of the Red Glimmer Paper bow-tie, but the remainder of the card unchanged.  We made this card at my November classes only.  
Thanks, Diana! 

This beautiful card was inspired by a Pinterest post that one of my club members posted onto our Pinterest Club page.  You can find the inspiration (made by Michelle Long) here.  I used the stamp set, Season Like Christmas out of the Holiday Catalog to make mine.  I love the Vellum textured oval that the tree is stamped onto!  The Softly Falling Textured Impressions Folder for the Sizzix Big-Shot makes the impressive look.

This card was inspired by another great demonstrator, Joanne James.  You can see her creation here.  I simplified the card a bit by using just the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper instead of adding glimmer paper [which we no longer carry :-( ].  The Tags & Trimmings stamp set (here in clear-mount, but available also in wood-mount) is so much fun to use, and the coordinating Trim Your Stocking Thinlits Dies add so much to it!  And, when purchased together, you get a 10% discount.

The final project was this adorable stocking.  The idea came directly out of the  Stampin' Success Magazine that every demonstrator receives quarterly.  It's such a valuable resource, and just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!  It uses the same supplies as the above project with the addition of Old Olive card stock, Whisper White Baker's Twine and Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper.

Hope you are inspired to create today!

Happy stamping!
