Halloween Decor Stamp Camp

I have been planning a Halloween Stamp Camp and wanted to use the Decor Elements. This is the second frame that stampers will be able to choose to make. I then used the spiders for the Spooky Bingo Bits game and the Halloween Bag. There will be 2 more projects along with these 3 but they are still under constructon.

This stamp camp will be on Sept 30th at 6:00 pm. Class cost is $25. Please bring your own adhesive. Please send your RSVP to KristinesCreations@comcast.net. Hope to see you there :)

Calendar Pages Jan-Mar

These were the first 3 calendar pages for the Birthday Calendar class we did last fall.

Tuesday, August 9, 2011


I am prepping for my Halloween stamp camp and wanted to use the Decor Elements in the class. This is one of the frames that they will be able to choose from. I stamped the background with the spiders from Scardy Cat and the webs from Wicked Cool. I punched out Daffodil Delight circles and put them behind the pumpkins to make them look like they were lit up.

Snow Card

This was a card I saw on Ashley's blog last year and made them for a club night. It uses Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. It is embossed with the snowflake envelope and then sponged white fraft over the snowflake images. I love this card. Very classy and very easy :)

Let It Snow

Dave got this card last year for Christmas. I found it recently while packing/unpacking and thought this would make a great stamping up card.

So this is what I came up with. It is embossed with the bigshot with the snowflakes folder. Then the letters are all cut out with the big shot as well. I went to the scrap drawers and found a real red snowflake print paper, then used Night of Navy and some shade of yellow. I think it was Crushed Curry. I was going through some embellishements to find something for the "o" and found these old snowflake brads. And then an old star brad for the "i". There you go - my version of the commericial card :)

Frame Class

I have been wanted to do the Name Frame Class for quite some time now and just never put it on the calendar. As I was unpacking my stamp stuff an dputting away the frames I thought - I just need to get this scheduled. This was a last minute class (less than a week) but we had a few takers. These are the frames that were created. I was so proud of my ladies :)

I wanted to make a frame with my new last name but I wanted to use Early Espresso for the background first layer but I needed 12x12 size and didn't have any so I made one for Dave's parents for Christmas. I used Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cajon Craze.

This is Colleen and she loves to read. When asked what she wanted to use she wanted to say I {heart} books. I loved the way it turned out. The color combo used was Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, and Very Vanilla.

This is Gwenda. She made her family name. It is a very soft color and very beautiful. She used Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla.

This is Melinda. Her frame has a special story. Today she is becoming the guardian of a 15 year old girl - Amara. Amara is very lucky to have someone who cares about her so much and her well-being. Melinda wanted to welcome Amara to their family so she made her this frame. She used Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.

This is Shirley and she did her family name as well. The stamping and the frame look so great together. Shirley used Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Very Vanilla.

Great job ladies. You are all so talented and did a great job! This was so fun. I so look forward to next time.

Tags Till Christmas

I just love the new stripped background folder. I think I will be using that one a lot. This past Christmas card class I ended up using the big shot on 4 of the 5 card designs. I love the dimension they add. This card uses the Heard from the Heart stamp set that I have not used in a very long time. Then the Tags Till Christmas set. I love when I can use the punches to cut out most everything :)

Birthday Calendars

I made birthday calendars for my family this past year. These are the covers. This was a major product as I made 9 of them if I remember correctly. I will show the individual pages later.

Shimmery Gifts of Christmas

I used River Rock, Always Artichoke and Real Red Markers to color the stamp. Once the card was completely assembled I used the White Shimmer Paint to color the dove and used some to highlight around the flower images.

Welcome Christmas

I loved this image when it came out last year that I just had to have it. I don't think I ever used it. The back layer is stamped Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake using the Bella Toile background stamp. The middle layer is the Bells & Bsoughs set - stamping Cherry Cobbler on Very Vanilla. The top layer is stamped with Versamark and then heat empossed with the new Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. I love the way this card turned out :)
