Christmas Stamp-a-Stack #1

I just finished my first of 3 Stamp-a-Stack Christmas card classes and it was a blast! My friend Cathy & her mom brought a group of friends from work and they made 10 cards each. (2 ea. of 5 designs) Here's a few pics of the card designs they made....

 I spotted these apron cards on SU Stamper's Showcase and had to make them. They are sooooooo cute! Everyone agreed. Although we couldn't find candy canes to put in the pouch so we substituted a peppermint candy. Yummmmm......



I used the Norther Flurries texture plate and Stickles to enhance the snowflakes as well as spraying a Shimmer Paint mixture on the whole card. I actually used the spray on everything.....you can't have enough shimmer as far as I am concerned!


Dasher was stamped in gold and embossed with glitter embossing powder. I just love the gold on this one. I used SU Deck the Halls designer papers and shimmer spray again......


I sponged all of the vanilla paper and the inside and the shimmer spray is really fabulous....sorry the pictures aren't clear enough to see it....

Last but not least, the Mitten card. I saw the mitten idea online and added it to the easel card. Love the vintage colors too. There is glitter on the cuffs of the mittens and yes, you guessed it....shimmer spray on teh whole card. This was my favorite to make. 

Oh, and a couple of the ladies brought me a little gifty that they made too, but I will post those in the morning as it is getting late. Thanks ladies for a fun evening! Check back tomorrow, or uh, later today........goodnight!
