Sep 20th Christmas Card Class Pictures!

Well - I had a very patient and understanding class today, we had 9 of us trying to make 6 cards, all sharing the same ink, stamps and blocks. A 2 hour class quickly became a 3 hour class! Sorry ladies, I underestimated the amount of time it would take to make each card. Here they are for your reference...hope you had fun and learned something new!!!

We used Rummage Bin: Primitive Christmas and Rummage Bin: Winter Vintage Signage as well as Paisley, Ticking, and Sophisticates Swirls backgrounders, all from Cornish Heritage Farms, THE most awesome red rubber stamp co. on the market. :) All papers are My Mind's Eye, also one of my favourite paper companies.

Technique: Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, Liquid Pearls, Stamping, Distressing.

Technique: Multi-coloured stamping, distressing, stamp and cut-out.

Technique: Brayer, Liquid Pearls

JEALOUS! I want to take that class...uploaded some of my tries at SCS under schirmcat! I was so inspired, I just "pretended" I was at your class! Your Rummage Bin line is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!! Do have a few questions...
1. Could you write the steps in how you did the cracked glass with the sleigh? I know how to do cracked glass but... did you stamp the snow stamp from Primitive Christmas after you embossed? I see the cute little snowy dots!
2. Also, how did you make the hearts on the second card...are they watercolored? did you distress the saltbox house so that it is all those different colors...did you watercolor?
Whew...I think I went over on my question quota!! THANKS so much...Kelly
