Guest Designer for November!

Just wanted to share with you the fact that I have scored a position as a Guest designer for Chocolate, Coffee and Cards for November.  Their blog is well worth a visit and the DT's work is fabulous. I am a bit intimidated but all happy inside!

In the meantime I have a few cards to share. All products used are from Stampin' Up.


This is cased from a fellow demonstrator - her's was smaller and neater than mine! But the idea is all her's.  The flower's are from Bordering on Romance, stamped in a circle, coloured with the pens from the latest In Colours and with Crystal Effects added.  The 25DEC stamp is from the set Joyous Celebrations and the sentiment is from an old set (Warm Words).  The edge punch is SU and the card stock is Whisper White and Old Olive. The wreath is hand cut out and popped up with dimensionals. 




When I counted the sprays on the original she has two less than me - explains why mine does not work as well! 


This is a small box I made, with a lid. Baja Breeze and Whisper White for the base.


This is the decoration on the top of the box (a bit crocked, I notice now) using the Hostess set Happy You.  The image has been coloured in with pens using only the current In Colours (two sets) and highlighted in parts with the Crystal Effects again.  Backgrounding them is a scalloped circle cut with a die from the Sparkly red Glimmer paper.  I used a variety of circle punches and dies here to layer up, and the card is Raspberry Ripple.


Of course there are four small envelopes made using my Scor Board!


And four small cards (3 x 3 inches approx).  Raspberry Ripple card bases, Baja Breeze mounting, with Whisper White, the Glimmer paper and the images from the stamp set Happy You. All coloured with the pens and Crystal Effects added in places. 


Baby's so cute and the mushrooms are sweet.


Good for a Christmas tag


A nice little gift box ready for Christmas.  Hope my workshop ladies like them!

I will enter the gift cards and box into the following challenges:

This is their inspirational photo - my joy is in the making of a gift for Christmas.

Do you use CS for the envelopes? Haven't made any myself - even though I have all the stuff!
