December Shoebox Cards

Hey everyone!!

Thanks for being patient... have has some computer issues but my hubby came up with a work around!!  Yeah!!

So here are our amazing creations from December!!

My card features the Snowflake thin cuts on Sapphire paper... with white embossed snowflakes on the white layer as well the words.. Tis the Season to Sparkle!  Simple and clean!!  

Anita, aka OA... Over Achiever, share these amazing tags with us!!  here's a group shot and then there are individual shots.  My favorite is the snowman!!

We did this on first and it's my favorite!  She had everything cut out for us so it went quite fast... but we did have to cut off the nose.. as the original was a side view... love that we were able to transform it!!  The front view is fantastic.

The second tag was this adorable Santa tag and we punched out the star and saved the outside for another tag.  We trimmed the sides and added the beard (scalloped circle) and stamped a nice greeting.  

The third tag was a mitten and we traced a pattern on two sided paper and then also traced two cuffs... so that the tag would look great from either side.  We also added hearts, puff ribbon and gems.
(note.. both sides are photographed.)

The final two were Mr. and Mrs. Claus.  We used a pop top for his belt and punched out little peppermint candies for her buttons and used an oval scalloped punch for her collar and used the remnants of the star punch out for her belt.  and the red striped twine is perfect for these fun tags.

Julie taught us this amazing chimney card... with Santa's legs coming out of the chimney!  So cute and it folds up to fit in a regular sized card envelope.  Honestly, the hardest thing about this was cutting the snow for the chimney top!  Fun card Julie!!

Kathy's card we had to do in stages... first we did the red layer... and we used some kind of paint, not sure what it was... but we had to splatter it on the paper, then use the straw to blow the wet paint around... wait for it to dry, then we did the green like the red... then we colored the poinsettia in the star and added the words.  Kathy loves to share new techniques with us!  This would make a fun birthday or new years card too!!  Thanks Kat!!  You always get our creative juices flowing.

Next is Lori... and she really had us wondering as she gave us each a piece of foil.  She had all of the pieces cut for us the car and the tree... then she had us squirt a little glue on the foil and I got really curious.  then she passed out the itty bitty tires... and we used the glue to put them on.  Loved that the card mimicked the paper!  And thanks for always keeping us guessing!!

Last month Roxxy helped us create an owl using the middle circle and she was so excited to share another idea with us for this month using the same set. And she used glitter paper to really make it shine!! I love the cardinal!!  It's so cute and so much fun!!  Wonder what she's going to use this set for next month!!  tee hee!!

Shannon's fun card is a result of clearance shopping last year... she had these great globe stickers that she found last year and bought them for a great price and add a little bit of glitter tape and some sponging and it's a fabulous greeting card!  

We missed  you Melani!!  The next class is Tuesday January 3rd at 7:00 pm!  see ya then!!
