PPRS Monday Card 12-16-13

On the card "Warm Winter Wishes" I used  CLR009A Christmas Trees 2 Clear Stamp Set, CLR020 Holly and Berries Clear Stamp Set (that's the glittering stuff you see around the edges, a little pine piece), D040 Pine Branch Die Set, CLR037 Fall Leaves Clear Stamp Set, DD0188 - 2 Birds with Holly, Sm.
Yes, still having problems with my photo editing and/or photography. Maybe all that Iridescent Supersparkling embossing powder didn't help either.

Prickley Pear Monday Card

Saw this in a magazine and had a little light-bulb go up. "I have a similar PPRS stamp, just got chipboard tags in and that little trial bottle of red Silk paint!" I thought.
And voila'! May I present the card "Let It Snow".
Here are stamps and dies that that I used.
DD0184 - Let It Snow, stamped on the PPRS-D038 -  Snowflake Pendant die and FF0148 - Snowflake Tree which I white embossed on a chipboard tag later painted with Carmen red Silk paint.
I used my absolute favorite tool from Prima and "rasped" the edges of the snowflake paper and the tag. The red ribbon is actually stenciled, using Tim Holtz' "Dot Fade stencil and Art Anthology's Sorbet Paint "Frost". All of Art Anthology's paints are dimensional, so the dots are raised and shimmering.
I love shimmer.
The Silk paints shimmer - so I had to order some of them. Could only afford about half to start off. But that's because I also ordered some Twinkling H2O's. They'll be up in the store by tonight. As will Tim's stencils.

This Cyber Weekend was a huge success for my store and it was all thanks to you.
You are appreciated.

Winter Sled Class Change

A few things came up, and I am running behind. Imagine that!? (Sarcasm.) So this weekends class is being moved from Saturday to Sunday 12-8-13 at 1:00 pm. And we're looking at cost of material instead of class fee, $6.00 instead of $10.00. I know, I over charge for my classes. (Sarcasm again.)

So, come play, we'll decorate our sleds together, using paint, paste, paper, ribbon, stencils, stamps and whatever else we can find. I can't wait!! Laughing

Snowflakes in the South for PPRS Monday

I called this card Snowflakes. Even though the stamps are all Poinsettias. But, with a snowflake pattern.
 I used CLR031A - Poinsettia 2 Holiday Clear Stamp set and the die PPRS-D031 as well as the sentiment from CLR027B - Scalloped Oval 3 - Winter - Clear Stamp set.
The paper is by DCWV, I picked it up at JoAnn's at one of their sales. Had been looking for blue Christmas paper all fall.
So, as you can tell, nothing difficult here, just a lot of layering.
