We had Christmas in July!

A couple of Saturdays ago on a hot day in July we held a Christmas cardmaking class and we had great fun making lots of Christmas cards all designed by our teamie Helen N - here is what we made:

Snowman Bunting
Snowman Bunting was a lovely stamp to use, we attached Fine Nibs onto our ProMarkers to colour the scarf and hanging stars and inside the card we stamped 'Christmas Celebrations' which is the sentiment that accompanies this stamp inside the card directly to the background paper

We also had a great time with one of our 'oldies' 'A Little Bird told me...'  as this design works so well for paper piecing the coat and hat:

A little bird told me...
We loved paper piecing this image and we think the spotty paper works so well:

And for all those cat lovers - look at this, our beautiful 'Joy, Hope and Wonder' stamp (includes text: Joy, Hope and Wonder) a great combination of red ginham and kraft paper:

Joy, Hope and Wonder
This card below was made with one of our fabulous sticker sheets (We 3 Kings) we attached Glitter Film over the background card to make it lovely and sparkly and then placed the silhouette camels over that - quick 'n' easy - love it!

Finally (after lots of cups of tea and coffee from Steve, and biscuits!) we made Stocking Owls

Stocking Owls
Such a favourite new stamp, and if you have yours, hold on to it as we have currently sold out - but we are shoving Steve into the garage tomorrow to make more!

We put Glossy Accents on the eyes, Helen liked it but I thought it looked like they were on drugs!
