Christmas Card Class part 2

Sorry I'm late getting this post up. I'm starting to get in that phase this time of year where I just want to come home after work and veg. Working retail during the holidays really takes it's toll on me; which also equals no day off until AFTER Christmas. Grrrr!

This first card is a continuation from yesterday's post of my cards from this month's card class. The image is stamped in Bamboo ink and then colored over with colored pencils. I got this idea from Close To My Heart's website where they have cool video tutorials. I also wanted to show them how to make a "square" bow. This card was the favorite of the group.

This second card was inspired by my blogging friend, Michelle. She's an awesome artist and her version is definitely better than mine. ;) The class was a little confused when they were only given two pieces of paper for this card, but they were also amazed at what it created.

I'm just going to set up a stretch of auto-posts for a while so I don't neglect my blogging friends. On a brighter note....I found somewhat of a surrogate for my Glee vacancy. "The Sing Off" on NBC is kinda like if Glee and American Idol had a baby. It showcases a Capella groups that compete to be the best. So fun! Too bad it only last a week. It'll work until Glee comes out on DVD. ;)

Materials: All CTMH. Jingle L2pp, Heartfelt ss, Snow Flurries ss, Evergreen ss, Holiday Commentary ss. Juniper, bamboo, and crystal blue inks, cranberry brads, white daisy and juniper grosgrain ribbon, sponge.
Other: Foam tape.
