I took the plunge signed up for the Holiday Card Workshop 2022 from Online Card Classes. I've done a couple of their classes before, but the timing has never been right to do it as the classes were being released. It's terrible timing right now, if I'm honest (fall term for college instructors is brutal!), but I couldn't resist.
I love the cards I've made so much I'm submitting them for several challenges:
Simon Says Stamp, Monday Challenge
Try it On Tuesday
ABC Christmas Challenge
A Place to Start
A Delicate Ornament
Card Size: 5x7
Okay, okay, I know I've used this ornament and sentiment combo a bunch, but I'm IN LOVE!
A Little Forest Scene
Card Size: A2
Don't tell the papers I meant to grade this afternoon, but I made this card when I needed a breather. I had a couple extra pink blended panels, and I love how this turned out. It came together pretty quickly!
Ellen Hutson, I think the stamp set is retired (I think there's a better word for it than that, but....idk, help a girl out in the comments if you've got something!)
Lacy Christmas Card
Card Size: A2
The technique is a faux laser cut look, and this die is really made for this. It felt like cheating. Jennifer McGuire taught ways to get this look without a die like this, but I decided to start easy.
I ink blended the pink background piece for an ombre look and sprayed the white piece with my all time favorite shimmer spray from Altenew. It's iridescent and super shimmery.
I've been making cards for over ten years and there are a few things that get used on a daily basis. They make cardmaking more joyful for me. I hope this list is helpful for you. Some items are listed with an affiliate link which offers me a small commission at no cost to you, while others are linked here just because I think these products are the best!
