Christmas Card? August 4, 2009

I got to go to my Stampin UP! Stamp Camp Saturday at Brenda Holder's and as usual we had a wonderful time. Brenda is so full of energy I wished she'd share some of it because she is just precious. Anyway the Christmas card is breath taking. Everything is SU and came out of the new catalog. This reindeer stamp is on page 208 for $8.95. We stamped it and embossed it with Gold powder then we used the Specialty paper on page 158 called Groom honestly its beautiful but at $1.39 a sheet that's way to expensive for me but it's a quick beautiful card. We used 3 gold brads and some white paper to make a dot behind the brads but I don't think the punch is sold anymore by SU. Its like 1/4 punch. Anyway thank you Brenda for the beautiful card.

Our second card I messed up, Brenda is always saying don't jump ahead and she got me on this one. She used Bermuda Bay as the base card then Melon Mambo we sanded the flowers to pop them off the page and then we mad the cupcake. Well you all know how I love cupcakes and butterflies so she used a stamp set 'On a Pedestal' page 71 she used the one stamp and colored it with the new color pens punched out a dot for the cherry and then ran a small piece of Bermuda Bay through a brayer cut it to size and Brenda used pop dots to set it up off the card, I jumped the gun and glued it down. But its darling and if anyone is ever in the Harrison area the first Saturday of the month Brenda has Stamp Camp and we make 4 cards each time. She's funny, full of energy and bright ideas.

Till tomorrow!!!

Oohh, great cards! The Christmas card is elegant and gorgeous, and it displays the Groom speciality paper well. I like the colors and the sanded look on the cute cupcake card.
