My Christmas Angel

I think these angels are just so cute and so simple to make.  Of course they can be used anytime during the year, but I think they are perfect for this festive time of year.

Front bow red I have these hanging on my kitchen cabinets and they really add to the ambience.  Note how these two angels have their “wings” to the front.

Back bow blue

These two angels have their “wings” to the back.  The blue angels were made from the Winter Frost DSP and are lighter weight than the red angels.  I used Real Red CS for the red angels and stamped them prior to putting them together.

Not sure how these will show up on the blog as when I try to adjust picture placement, the blog ends up a bit off kilter – but we will give it a try.  I’ve used different decorations at the neck of each angel.  I’m going to try a silver halo on several angels so that I can use a Frosted Finish embellishment .  I didn’t care for the gold/silver contrast on the angels with the gold halos. 

For December Stamp Camp, I will be demonstrating these simple angels and will send you home with a template so you can make your own in any color – any card stock.  You can mix and match and create your heart away!

Remember the dates for this upcoming Stamp Camp:  Saturday, November 30th starting at 9 AM (but you must let me know if you will be attending on this date), Thursday, December 5th from 2 to 9 PM, Friday, December 6th from 2 to 9 PM, and Saturday December 14th from 9 AM to 4 PM. Please note that I will be out of town on Saturday, December 7th. Please let me know if we need to arrange an alternate date/time for you. I could easily do mornings on December 5th and 6th if that would be helpful for you.  We do not have Stamp Camp in January, but will meet in February on the 6th, 7th and 8th.  I will keep you posted on Stampin’ Up sales you might be interested in.  A new mini catalog will be coming out in December.  I’ve seen the preview copy and there are some nice items shown.  You should be receiving yours in the mail; please let me know if  you don’t receive it by the end of December 2013.

I wish you and yours a very Blessed Christmas, Rosemary – 630-759-3089 or paperrose01@aol.com

Wonderful Blessing

Although this card is very similar to the Christmas Star, Deb and I felt it was so elegant in Navy with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and the 1/8” Silver Ribbon.  Although we have Navy cs cut for you, if you prefer Cherry Cobbler or another color, please let us know. 

Nativity and envelopeThe “Wonderful Blessing” image was stamped in Versa Mark and embossed in Silver.  A die cut  Silver Glimmer scalloped circle surrounds this beautiful scene with a small rhinestone glistening in the center of the star.  The double silver ribbon is highlighted with a Frosted Finishes embellishment.  Note the silver foil-lined envelope which is the finishing touch to this beautiful card.  A close up of the stamped image is below.

Nativity center 1The detail in this stamp is fantastic.  There is no need for any other message on the card front.  We did try to carry the simplicity and elegance thru on the inner message as shown below

This is the third of the three cards we will be creating for our December Stamp Camp.  I will be putting out one additional post to show the angels I will be demonstrating.  As I mentioned before, I will be demonstrating the simple steps to make these angels and will send everyone home with a template so that you can make your own.  These make cute little ornaments, stocking stuffers, and simple gifts.

Stamp Camp for December will be held on Saturday, November 30th starting at 9 AM (but you must let me know if you will be attending on this date), Thursday, December 5th from 2 to 9 PM, Friday, December 6th from 2 to 9 PM, and Saturday December 14th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  Please note that I will be out of town on Saturday, December 7th.  Please let me know if we need to arrange an alternate date/time for you.  I could do mornings on December 5th and 6th if that would be helpful for you.
