Stampin' Up! - Christmas Class

I recently went to my first Stampin' Up! Class which was run by my demonstrator friend. I love the way the SU products are all from the same colour palette so everything matches and how they coordinate their punches & die sets to match with their stamps, fabulous! :)

In the class we made 4 card designs, 2 of each, all using the Ornament Keepsakes stamps and matching framelits dies.

The card to the right uses the 'Greetings of the Season' Noel sentiment, a snowflake embossing folder and the branches are made by using part of an image from the Lovely as a Tree set. The holders on the baubles were created using Glass Stampin' Glitter in Champage.

This card uses Bakers Twine and Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment is from the More Merry Messages set.

This card uses the textured impressions embossing folder, Holiday Frame, embossed onto white card and die cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelits.
The bauble was given a glittery sheen using the Shimmer Paint.

This last card has a small fault and highlights the dangers of red liner tape! I was trying to line up the white panel onto the base card and it touched in the corners and was stuck, I will trim the extra card from the side before it is sent.

This sentiment is from the Chock-Full of Cheer set. The paper piercing shape was created using the Festive template set but the shape was slightly changed to fit onto the A6 size card.

I am really pleased with these cards, I love the designs and can't wait to go to my next class. It was really nice to be taught different techniques and I have placed my first order if an SU product which I will share once it arrives and I have created a project using it.
Have a good weekend everyone.
