Walking in the Winter Woods…

So here we are again – it’s October, and we are busily making our Christmas cards around here…  sounds early, right?  Actually it isn’t…  We start making our Christmas cards in our classes in July… we make 12 per month, and by the time Thanksgiving comes around, we have 60 handmade cards ready to drop in the mail!  Too good to be true? nope.  We’ve been doing it that way for years now!

In any case, this month we made a great card with one of the newer stamp sets card Winter Woods…  This set also comes as a bundle, but for this card we only used the stamps.  Should you absolutely NEED these stamps for your collection, (and who could blame you??), then I would recommend going ahead and getting the coordinating framelits in the bundle… then you’d have them for all future projects, AND you’d save 10%!  Beat that!  Who knows, I love this set so much I just may show you a few more ways to use this great set…  I have a video for you , and will attach it here, but I want you to pay close attention to how exactly to make the shimmer spray – it’s easy peasy, and you will LOVE what it does for even the simplest card!

Spooky Sweets Buffalo Check!

I love this card!  I would also love to take credit for the awesome design but, sadly, I can’t…  I saw this card online at Inkspired Treasures, made by the creative genius of Connie Babbert, and I just knew I had to play with it.  Connie made her card in greys, black and orange, but I just LOVE bright green and purple cards for Halloween, so I made a few changes of my own…

I also really needed to teach you a few tricks to make this card super simple!  I even made a video lesson for those video learners (of which I am one)…  Note how easy this is using the Stamparatus…  If you don’t have this yet, then you need to get one pronto!!  Christmas card season is upon us, and if you plan on mass-producing some holiday cards, you are going to want this tool to make your life easier!

You have to see this adorable little bat… He is punched out of the brand new black foil paper, and I really can’t get enough!  I will list all of the supplies I used for my version below the video, so be sure to check them all out!

Okay, so here is the video I promised you…

And here is what I used to make this fun little card:
