Candle Stamping with Stampin' Up! Christmas stamps

Just for something a bit different I showed my class how to stamp on candles a few weeks ago, the class went really well which was great because I had had some concerns of anyone being heavy handed with the heat gun may end up with a "melted , misshapen project" but thankfully this did not happen!! lol!

The Festive Flurry and Snowflake Soiree stamp sets have great "decorative style" designs in them which are perfect for decorating a candle I did some in the traditional christmas "red and green" but my favourite is the "Coastal Cabana" blue with the silver, it's such a lovely colour!! Hope everyone is having a nice week....cheers for now...Sue :)

3D Explosion/Surprise Boxes made with Stampin' Up!

Hi all! I did an "Explosion" or "Surprise" box class this week with my customers by popular demand and we actually did a "Birthday box themed" class with a card to match. I've been having alot of fun with the new Stampin' Up! Bigz Bow Die that is in the new seasonal catty and decided to make a couple more with a different theme with some of the new DSP papers in the seasonal catty. The silver bow embellished one was really meant to be "Christmasy" but would actually suit a special "Birthday" occasion. The Bow Die I can see getting used lots by me for all sorts of gifting, cards and scrapbooking projects. The Cherry Cobbler bow, I actually used Cordinations cardstock and embossed it and sanded it which gave it a "velvety look" that I'm really happy with! Enjoy your weekend.................Sue :)

Christmas Cards made with Stampin' Up! New Seasonal Catty & main catty products!

Well "hello" September!! August was not a month I care to revisit so here's hoping September brings better things!! I have been doing a little creating with some projects so hopefully I can play "catchup" this month and share them with you! I made these Chrissy cards for my class with some of the new product from the new Seasonal Catalogue which is now live and the bottom card I actually made from product in our main catty - except for the sentiment which is a carry over set called Greetings of the Season and is still available. I actually stamped this one on some of the new Cordinations neutrals cardstock (not Whisper White standard) and it gives it that "canvas" textured look. They are all quick and "easy as" cards and especially the Festive Flurry (snowflakes) stamp set which has framelits to match!! Thanks for looking............cheers Sue :)
