Merry & Bright

In our Technique Class last Sunday we played with the fantastic Hearth & Home Thinlits  These are sold as a bundle which include the Stamp Set – Happy Scenes.  The stamps are small enough to go behind the window.  We used the fantastic all occasions “Lovely as a Tree“.

I will admit when I first saw these Thinlits Dies I saw an old bush gate……. and my mind started thinking……  I even managed to make it a little rustic & worn – just like the gate out home.  So of course, to go with the gate, I had to create a real bush Christmas Card.

I still think I went a little overboard on the stars but out home the stars are really that bright.  After I had completed the card, I then realised that I should have created the Milky Way!  Mind you, I went a little green with the green too as it is very dry out west & they are still in one of the worse droughts since the 60’s, so I’ve been told.  There isn’t even any dust left on the land for the wind to pick up.

Again, this class is going to be repeated in November.  Be sure to check back at a later for the dates.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

Technique Class

Our technique last Sunday was all about “Inlaid Dies“.  I love, love, love doing this & thought this card was perfect for this016-xmas---blog technique.

I was so happy when I saw “Wondrous Wreath” had returned in the new Catalogue.  I hadn’t purchased it when it first come out but after seeing so many gorgeous cards created using this set, I knew I just had to get it.

Although, in saying that, I have used it a little different.  Add a little bit of the gorgeous new “Merry Moments DSP” I think we created a lovely Christmas Card.  “Christmas Card” you say, no it isn’t too early & the ladies thought it fantastic that we start our cards so early.  I am going to try & do at least 1 up until November.

This class will be repeated Wednesday, 29 July.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
