Holiday Card Workshop 2013 Class Wrap Up

I Love the way this card and technique came out, especially after the 4th time.  The only reason why I had to try it so many times was the tape to mask the kept ripping the paper as I peeled it off.  Then when I finally got the hang of it, my embossing power didn't stick, so I had to do it again......I don't plan to make another one like this, so my Nephew will be the one and only.

Day 2 Holiday Card Workshop Die Cutting for Holiday Cards

Day 2 Holiday Card Workshop Die Cutting for Holiday Cards

I really wanted to try the Layered Die Cut Inlay shown by Jennifer, but when I pulled out the Die's I wanted to use they were attached and I couldn't pull them apart to Layer them.  What a bummer.....

So I decided to use my Snowman Die and use the Technique shown by Laurie Willison, Unique Die Cut folds.  Create a flap behind your Die Cut to reveal a special message.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn is my favorite time of year.  I love the colors of the tree's and the smell in the air.  Although, living in Florida you do not see much of the colors or the cooler weather that it brings.  But, it's still my favorite. 
I love the Mighty Oak Stamp and Die set from PaperTrey Ink.  I was only going to post one photo but I love the variety of colors and ways you can use the set.

Ready for some Fishin'

This card is so perfect for my Dad's Birthday that's coming up in September.  I have been so busy with my new job and other things that Life brings.  It's been a while since I have made any cards.  My parents were upset that I purchased cards for Mother's day and Father Day this year.  I decided I better come up with something special for their birthdays. 
I did see this cut on another Blog a while back and knew that it would be perfect and My Creative Times new Cartoon Cloud background stamp was perfect.
Silhouette: Fisherman sized to fit A2 Card
Fiskars: Wave border punch
ColorBox: Chestnut Roan
Hero Arts: Soft Pool Shadow Ink
My Creative Time: Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies and Background, Have fun in the Sun & Floral Sentiments

I love the way this card came out.  I used My Creative Times new Cloud background stamp on White cardstock and the Die set to make the 3D effect.  I just used a piece of scrap black paper for the road and used a white gel pen to draw the dotted line.
This card is a Thank You for our "Tour Guide" that drove us around Orange County California touring all the famous spots.  I don't know about you but I'm sure glad I do not live in that area, the traffic is horrendous.......I believe we spent more time in traffic our three days then we did anything else. (At least that's what if felt like)
