The Holly Jolly Layer's Stamp Set is one of two featured hostess sets in the 2016 Holiday Catalog. These stamps layer perfectly with the Layering Ovals, Circles, and Squares Framelits, too. I had a lot of fun pairing these stamps up with the very festive Presents & Pinecones Designer Specialty Paper and Washi Tape.
This Stamp Set is only available if you host a class or place a personal order of $150 or more. As a special thank you, I'll send you all the materials you need to make a complete set of 8 cards (2 each of the above designs) plus a detailed PDF of all instructions. I can't send stamped images, so you'll have to provide the ink, stamps, and adhesive.
Ready to host a private class? Email me today to pick a date. I'll do all the work; you and your friends have all the fun. And, in return, you'll get this very special class "to go".
It's still be hot and humid here in the South. And my sister has sent me pictures of thermometers in the triple digits in Southern California. But I'm dreaming of hoodies, sitting by the fire in my cozy slippers, and sipping hot cocoa. And craft fairs! I don't have time to sip hot cocoa! I have to get ready for fall craft fairs.
I'd see similar designs of this hot cocoa packet floating around on Pinterest and decided to try it out myself. I even found some candy canes that I squirreled away in a cool, dry place from last winter. Too cute! I can hardly wait to make more in different colors and patterns. These will be a fun addition to my booth!

For my swap this holiday season, I tried something I'd never done before. I did a watercolor wash of Night of Navy on Shimmery White Cardstock. I love how the colors separate - the blues and purples make a perfect deep, dark winter sky. Watercolor adds a bit unique-ness, too, since as the color washes across the page, no two will be exactly alike. Rather like stars, or snowflakes!
And don't forget to stamp the inside! The Star of Light Stamp Set has the perfect holiday sentiments for both inside, and out.
One thing I like about participating in swaps, is seeing how others interpret designs and colors. The two card I'm featuring today use colors that I don't even have in my studio simply because they are not 'me'. It's very hard for me to create when the colors don't appeal to me, and yet, I received to lovely harvest cards featuring the Basket of Wishes Stamp Set that are absolutely lovely.
Barbi used Elegant Eggplant as the focal point and it really makes the image stand out. I love the use of the Copper Foil Sheets to make a 'brad' , anchoring that sentiment flag.
Cajun Craze is another color that you won't find in my studio, but it's perfect here, reminding me of those last warm days of fall when the trees turn such lovely shades of red, orange, and yellow. Isn't your eye drawn right to those pretty sunflowers?
Such a lovely job. I'm certainly inspired to try some new colors!
