Paper Angel…

My share today is one that we finished the year off with in our Technique ClassChristmas Paper Angel.  Create a heap of them in all different sizes & colours & hang from your Christmas Tree.  The list is endless in how you could adjust this little angel to create something unique.

I will admit it is not my idea, I actually found it on Pinterest, but when I went back to find it, check to see if there was a tutorial & link it back, no luck.  Please let me know if you recognize this angel as I would love to give you credit for it.  Thank you so much for your inspiration!

As I didn’t save the picture & had no instructions, I sort of started out blind.  I played for sometime until I got it just right or to how I remembered it looking.  I actually used DSP for my angel, whereas the one I saw was Pool Party, I think!

I have used a retired punch for the heart, but it is easy to replace with any current shape, including the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.

The tutorial will be on my FREE TUTORIAL Page if you want to re-create it!

Supplies –           
Cardstock – Glimmer Paper – Silver – 124005, Vellum – 106584
DSP – Winter Frost Speciality – 132341
Punches – Scallop Edge Border – 119882, Heart – Retired
Accessories – Simply Scoring Tool – 122334, Trimmer – 129722, Dazzling Details – Silver Sparkle – 127845, Bone Folder – 102300
Non-SU! – Ribbon/Wire/Cord, Beads, Hot Glue Gun

Christmas Greetings….

Our 1st card in our Technique Class last Sunday was using the gorgeous Stamp Set – Joyful Christmas with the beautiful technique “Stained Class“.

We also got to play a little with the Envelope Punch Board & created a File Card which seems to be all the rage at the moment.

I always try & plan my classes around the ladies & what they like.  It gets me out of my comfort zone.  The ladies loved this technique & the card – which is always a good thing.
