transparent_christmas_pine_cones_png_clipartHello again! It’s been awhile since my last post, but I have been super busy with a side project that I’ve been focusing on for the last 6 months – my very own house, which has finally finished building, and almost ready for handover! :D

Because the of-so-fun job of packing everything needed to start, I finished my card classes on 11th October, to start back up in December when I’m all settled into my new home. Which really sucks, because I really want to do some crafting, but everything is packed up! :(

So instead, I’ll share with you the projects we made in the 4th October card class – a Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.We made 2 designs, with 5 of each design.

On a piece of Whisper White, we stamped the tree image from Jar Of Cheer using Emerald Envy ink, and Mint Macaron ink. Inking and stamping off on Grid Paper gave us different gradients of colour, which helped add depth to the stamping. A strand of Whisper White Bakers Twine was tied around this in a bow, and the piece was stuck to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The large star image was stamped on Pool Party cardstock with Pool Party ink, and diecut using the co-ordinating Framelits. A smaller star was cut from Vellum using the Framelits as well. These were then held together with a Glue Dot, and a sequin was glued in the centre. This was then adhered above the stardust embossing with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

img_0843The inside of the card was stamped and heat embossed with the stardust image as well, and a sentiment was stamped using Pool Party ink.
