Well I know that things have been quiet around here but unfortunately not because I was out enjoying life- lol! I was "lucky" enough to be hit by a really nasty cold/flu, and spent close to 5 days house bound and mostly in bed-ugh! Not my idea of a good time. Oh well I am greatful that I am feeling a lot better now and so is my youngest who also got sick. I warn you this post is long but promise it will be worth it to read to the end (grin!)
These are the Stamp Club projects that my group of ladies made last month and we always have a great time hanging out and crafting together. This time my hubby even made cupcakes for us-yummy!
Here is a close up of the Santa card we made and I also did this card for a Kids Chritmas Class. It was definately a hit with everyone and was inspired by This Fabulous Card. My upline Natasha had the great idea to use the Leaves #2 die for the BIg Shot to create his mustache. Isn't he just too cute?! The hat was created using a 3"x3 1/2" of Real Red cut in half on the diagonal, a 1 1/4" x 4 1/4"piece of Whisper White that we ran through the Crimper and a scrap piece punched out with the Boho Blossom Punch. For the beard and mustache we used the SU! Texture plate to give it the swirls. The eyes were done using the 1 1/4" and 3/4" Circle punches and a White Gel Pen. His tongue is a a 1" Circle of Textured Real Red and for the nose we also used the 1" Circle punch to punch out Blush Blossom cardstock.
