October Class

Ready - Steady - Punch, Cut, Score

Little Santa

Little Santa card is very cute and quite fast to make. I used several different Christmas theme DSP (designer series paper). The used set is from the last year, called This Christmas. I embellished it with a couple of washi tapes. Santa is sprinkled with Diamond Dazzle glitter. The bonding agent is the fine tip glue pen. Basically, you just fill the bits where you want the glitter with the glue and voila. A little sweet touch was to use Q-tip dabbed onto a light pink pad to highlight Santa's cheeks. Then using the markers to colour the Santa image. I enjoyed this colouring part. It's so calming.

Dazzling Star

The second card is the small format (3x3"). 
I got the Diamond Dazzle paper some time ago but without a real plan. Who doesn't like to have some glimmer paper, just in case? 
When I finally picked it up to work with it, I looked at it and watched it dazzle for a bit. And then I just reached for coloured cardstock I saw in the sparkles - pool party. I wanted to use Stitched Shapes dies on a project this month so I did and the rest just clicked together.

Halloween Box

The 3D project of the class is this cute Halloween box. I made some of these already, last month, for MacMillan coffee morning. Everyone liked them so much that I decided to share them in my October class. I followed this great tutorial of Julie DiMatteo to make them. 
Halloween used to be my big thing when living in the USA but not so much here. It was nice, nevertheless, to brush my old "witching" set to make nice tags. Bellow, I am showing 2 super cool tools I used. Simply scored made the box super fast and easy to make. No measuring involved! Brilliant! In no time one punch made the decorative closing. When creating the boxes, these two tools became my new crafty besties.
