I've been doing my best to re-use all my 'baby containers' lately. Baby food jars have become tealight holders, baby food tins have been re-covered and stuffed with Hershies Kisses, and Formula Tins (the ones that don't make as storage tins in Matt's shed) get re-covered and filled with baking.
This tin is covered with Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. I have also decorated it using my Scallop Trim Border  & Corner Punches. I've also sponged a frame and used Gold embossing powder to make it a little more 'Christmassy' .

Sign up for my Techniques Class in January to learn how to punch squares and rectangles using the Scallop Trim Punches.

Here is another of this year's christmas cards - this time from my Techniques class, where we covered how to use the embossing folders with the Big Shot, but leave a smooth section in the middle.

For this card I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Vintage Vogue set, which looks quite festive when teamed up with Pear Pizzazz and Real Red. I finished it off with a greeting from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Christmas Embossing

This is a technique we recently covered during my Techniques class - we used the Big Shot and ran the Whisper White cardstock through the 'Vintage Wallpaper' embossing folder, then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder.
I made up this card as an example of how this technique can be used on a project. I'm pretty happy with the result so will probably give this card away nearer chirstmas.... I've also added it to the 'Just Add Ink' challange this week.

Here's another Christmas card we made at a recent Quick Cards class. Over the last few classes I've been playing around and using stamp sets that are not necessarily Christmas sets to make Christmas cards (see pervious post using Lovely As A Tree).
For this card I used me 'So Swirly' Jumbo Wheel, the flower image from 'Priceless' and the greeting from 'Seasons of Joy'.
I also used the Scallop Oval and Large Oval punches, with a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to top it all off. Colours are Always Artichoke and Ridinghood Red.

I'll be away in December this year, so I'm getting ready for Christmas early...
Here are two cards we recently made in one of my Quick Cards classes. They were inspired by my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators - Paula Dobson and Jacque Pederson

For both cards I've used 'Lovely as a Tree' - a set I only recently bought but I don't know how I survived without it for so long!

This is one of my favourite sets at the moment - Lots of Bots. I've used it for may occasions, including this first brithday card.

The Silly Season

These are cute little cards that I made last year for the kids I work with, but they are suitable for anyone young at heart! They are quick and simple to make - you just have to make sure all the Santas end up in the cards, not your tummy! 
 I used: Seasons of Joy, Real Red Ink, StazOn White Ink, Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White Cardstock, Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch.
Have fun!
