Sorry to say I didn't get the samples posted until after the class but we had a great time. Here are the samples for some ideas. The February cards will be posted this week.
First is a card featuring DeNami stamps. The Let it Snow background is embossed in silver on blue cardstock. There are three layers of blue and silver paper. The top layer has a silver embossed snowflake. It's topped off with a bow of silver trimmed ribbon.
Second is another card in blue. There's a theme going here. Freezing weather= blue cards. A Martha Stewart punch is used to stamp snowflakes along the bottom and then solid blue paper is layered behind the flakes. Silver bling is added to some flakes. Patterned paper is layered on the card and Serendipity's scarf and mittens are stamped in blue on a coordinating paper. This is a great example of how coordinating paper packs work great together. When the mittens and scarf were stamped on the solid blue paper it just didn't look like the right shade of blue. Using the patterned paper made the blues match and look like they are made from material of polka dots.
Third is card in purple and brown, an interesting combination. It uses two stamps from Paper Parachute. I love their stamps and hadn't used them in a class at Captured Moments yet. A cream ribbon is added to the side.
Finally, a new stamp I bought at the Hamburg stamp show by Sweet Stamps. Tiffany suggested the blue gingham paper for the background which works perfectly. There are plenty of days I wish I could click my heels and go home. Gotta have some glitter glue for those ruby slippers.
Thanks to those who came including three new students. Since Captured Moments has announced that they will close the physical store at the end of March, I'll looking for another venue to host this class. Keep you posted.
