Just For You!

I thought I would share this quick Christmas card with you.  Love the color combo here! This card is a design that goes together quickly and perfect for assembly line style. (for those of us who are just beginning to make our Christmas cards - I am in that group) Bo Bunny printed card stock, Fiskars border punch, Spellbinder's Create a Flake 1, Big Scallop Circles and Eyelet Circles were used. Just for You stamp is from Hero Arts and Merry Christmas is a Stamp It image.  Think I might add some glitter possibly the Martha Stewart tinsel glitter or the Diamond Dust from Flora Craft, just to give it that magical touch!

I had the pleasure of demonstrating a variety of techniques with a wonderful group of ladies at Paper Pastimes on November 18th & 20th. The topics covered ranged from tea bag and iris folding to a complete journey through die cutting and embossing using the Big Shot Machine, Spellbinder's dies and an assortment of embossing folders.Thanks Carole for hosting this event!

For more creative inspiration check out my most recent newsletter for CardMaker. It's all about creating with tags and my next one going out December 13 is about gift card holders, be sure to sign up, it's free!

Countdown Mode

©Sharon M. Reinhart 2010
Well, we are now into November and on countdown mode, 50 days and counting.  For those of you who create Christmas Cards and Tags, I thought I would provide a bit of inspiration with a tag that I created for the Nov. 1 issue of the CardMaker Magazine Newsletter where you will be able to find a brief description of techniques and materials.  I love to make tags for special gifts or sometimes the tags become a focal point in a card.  They are miniature surfaces that come together quite quickly.  A set would also make the perfect hostess gift, or token of appreciation for the people in your life that you are grateful for.
CardMaker Magazine Nov. 2010
On a different note, but still with a connection to Christmas.  The November 2010 issue of CardMaker Magazine has included me in their meet the designer feature.  I am thrilled to be included and even more so to be in the company of all the wonderful holiday creations. Thanks to all of you at CardMaker Magazine!

If you are looking for more ideas for Christmas cards and packaging be sure to check out my book Iris Folding for Christmas available through Annie's Attic.
Till next time - wishing you many wonderful creative adventures.
Creatively yours,
