What a good day.

Good food, good cards, good teachers, good friends.

We made 7 cards by 7 different teachers. Here’s the one designed and taught by Chris Liles.  It features Memory Box dies. These ornament dies also come in a much larger size, perfect for scrapbook pages.

This next card was designed and taught by Allene Fewell.  The stamp is by Technique Tuesday; they have a great blog.  Check it out here.  We colored using copic markers.

The third card was designed and taught by Shari Townley. I love using Shimmer Sheetz by Elizabeth Craft Designs. They come in lots of colors.  This is the bronze and we embossed it (Tim Holtz Shattered Glass folder) then applied Krylon gold using a foam pad to the raised edges. The symbolism of the light piercing the darkness is so perfect for Christmas.

Our fourth card was designed and taught by Cathy Verzi.  The paper and stamp was Impression Obsession.  The ornament die is by Spellbinders.

This next card was designed and taught by Sharon Bessinger.  I love her paper-piecing techniques.  She is really talented and this card also featured a unique “diamond” fold.  To speed things up (sometimes it is hard to fit all the steps into the alloted 40 minute time slot) she scored and folded the cards for us but she gave us a pattern so we can make them ourselves later. And, with help from her supportive family, she cut out all the MANY pieces ahead of time! There is a tag at the top (sorry, the photo cut it off) that says, “So grateful for you.” Sharon is moving to Oklahoma and I just want to say that I am so grateful for her.  You will be missed, Sharon.

This next card was designed and taught by Sonja Woodward.  It is called a “never-ending” card.  I remember making these way back when and I hadn’t made one in a long time.  So much fun.  It has four “pages.”  And once again, Sonja did a lot of the work, cutting, scoring and writing instructions so we could finish in 40 minutes (well, almost). And we got a pattern from her to so we make them ourselves. I loved making one of these again.

And finally, last but not least, our 7th card designed and taught by Loye Rich.  Simple but elegant poinsettia stamp by Penny Black in their classic watercolor style. Usually we use brush markers to color these (right on the stamp) but this time Loye had us use a stipple brush and Brilliance ink.  The colors and the shimmer are quite lovely especially in person. And the card was finished up nicely with the gold outline stickers (also from Elizabeth Craft Designs).

Now isn’t that a great collection of Christmas cards by a group of talented teachers? All of these cards are on display at Creating Lasting Memories and if you want to make any of them yourself, just stop by the store and we’ll show you the supplies you will need. Plus, we have lots of other Christmas stamps and paper for all your holiday projects.  Hope to see you soon.
