Witching Decor Class

» 28 September, 2015 » 3-D Projects, Halloween » 0 comments

Last week I taught a private class with some wonderful ladies.  We had a great time creating witch hats using the Witches’ Night stamp set and the Witching Decor Project Kit (Sadly this kit is now Sold Out) from the Holiday Catalog.

Witching Decor Class

Here everyone is hard at work on their hats!

Witching Decor Finished Hats

Front Row: Holli and Christina/Back Row: Tracie, Andrea, Gina, and Tamara

Everyone was excited to share their finished hat, and they couldn’t wait to start decorating for Halloween! Didn’t they all do an amazing job? I particularly enjoyed getting to see how each person added their own unique touch to their hat.

Gina hosted this private class, and she earned Stampin’ Rewards to spend on any current merchandise in the catalog.

If you would like to schedule your own private class (locally or long distance), or you would like to learn more about earning Stampin’ Rewards please email me.

The sentiment, “grateful” was cut using the Seasonal Frame thinlits from the Holiday Catalog.

I added texture to the thin strip of Rich Razzleberry card stock using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.

Stamp with Dara: Your Presents Birthday Card

This card was made using Your Presents stamp set, and the sentiment is from the set called Crazy About You.

Although this stamp set is featured in the Holiday Catalog as a Christmas stamp set, I chose to use the Christmas packages as birthday gifts to show how this set can be used for more than one occasion.

The patterned papers are from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack.

Measurements: Bermuda Bay 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, Cucumber Crush 2 7/8″ x 4 3/8″, Whisper White 3″ x 3″ and 2 5/8″ x 4 1/8″, Polka Dot pattern 4″ x 4 1/2″, Large Dots pattern 1 1/4″ x 4″

Hello Autumn Card

» 18 September, 2015 » Cards, Clean & Simple, Fall » 0 comments

Stamp with Dara: Hello Autumn Card featuring Cheer All Year stamp set

Cheer All Year is a versatile stamp set that can be used throughout the Fall and Winter seasons.  It includes an image and sentiment for each holiday (Halloween, Fall, and Christmas).

I chose to keep this card very CAS (clean and simple). It’s the perfect project for new stampers or even the avid crafter that just needs something ready to go in under 5 minutes.

The color combination for this card is Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Tangelo Twist.

I cut the feathers out with scissors (sigh…no framlits for this set) 😉 Then I adhered the feather with dimensionals to Whisper White card stock.

Measurements: Rich Razzleberry 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, Early Espresso 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″, Whisper White 3″ x 4 1/4″
