September Class



For this month class, I dusted off, a very VERY old stamp set (it came out in 2000, believe it or not). I guess that just shows the quality of Stampin' Up! products as these stamps didn't start to peel off of the wooden blocks nor the images lost their sharpness. The set is called Long Stemmed and is long retired but I like the simplicity of the flowers as well as the size.

Not long time ago a friend was in a need of a sympathy card. I came up with a very simple card and thought it would be a good project for the class. First, I felt a bit uneasy to suggest to make a sympathy card. It's not like birthday cards that you stack up and can't wait to send to your friends. But even if someone wouldn't like to make this specific card, the stamps used are so versatile they could be used for pretty much any occasion. One could just change the colour scheme and the sentiment. I plan to make more cards showing just that later on. 

The second project I created uses the beautiful things from the new winter catalogue. 

I made an untraditional Xmas card. I someone had told me a few months ago I would be making a Christmas card using Early Espresso colour (very dark brown), I'd probably laugh out loud. And yet, there I was spreading the love amongst my fellow stampers.
The card was very easy to make. It was more or less an assembly of pretty elements together. The sentiment in the middle of the flake is not Stampin' Up! I could find a fitting saying that would fit the circle punch so I borrowed a stamp from a different maker.
