To Infinity and Beyond

My Great Nephew will be 2 next month and loves the toy story character especially Buzz. I was searching on Stampin Connections for a card to make when I found this, and cased him from Ellen Kemper.  Wow, my good friend and fellow demonstrator Carla and I made 4 of these and it took us nearly 4 hours.  He is constructed from our punches. lots of detail work.  All I can say is Ellen you are the bomb. I'm going to encase him in a shadow box frame and I hope Desmond enjoys him as much as I did putting him together.

230 Cards later!

Yep, that's what I said !!   230 cards cut and made ready for 23 of the greatest scrappers.  20 of us crammed into the back room of our local Pizza restaurant and for 4 hours we laughed, giggled, glued, taped and sparkled our way through 10 Christmas cards.  We had handcrafted door prizes and I think everyone went home happy.  I love doing these classes. This was my second one and a huge success. I'm now planning for class number 3. 
Here is a sample of the cards we did. All of the cards here were made whith current SU products. 
The first card shown, uses the new stamp set 'Come to Bethlehem'. I used Next to Navy Card stock and Not Quite Navy Classic Ink.
 This next cards was made with a stamp set I bought last year and never used. Now I think why?  It is so much fun.  'Holiday Lineup', I colored it with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive markers. The DSP I used is from the Jolly Holiday Paper pack. I also used Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler cardstock and Very Vanilla Satin ribbon, and for that finishing touch I added pearls to their hats.

This Card was cased straight off of Stampin Connections. I can't remember the Demonstrators name but this card is awesome. This stamp set 'Delightful Decorations' is so versitile.  Again I used my favorite colors of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  The ribbon is actually the Cherry Cobbler Seam binding.  Makes for a really smart looking card. I just love it.

And Along comes 'Dasher'. This card was made with the DSP we received at the close of convention this year. 'Deck the Halls',  I also used Crumb cake, Cherry Cobbler, and Almost Artichoke cardstock.  

This is just a few of the cards we did during class. I will post more later.  Finding time to create, case and cut these cards for class is a labor of love and I look forward to bringing you more.

I cased this card and changed the base color a bit. The original card used More Mustard and Very Vanilla. I switched it out using Canjun Craze and Old Olive.  This is my first attempt with the new Owl punch and I love this little guy. I did add the google eyes for fun.  I made several of these for a swap I'm participating in Saturday at an all day demonstrator event. I'm looking forward to showing my little guy off. I think I'm gonna keep one for my self though.
