New Class - Stamping on Candles!

I am happy to announce that I will be offering more classes in addition to the regular monthly Card Club that I currently have! This is my first class:

Do you have an ordinary blah candle and want to make it a work of art? Why not attend this class and learn how to turn an ordinary white pillar candle into something similar to above? I will also have non-Christmas stamps available if you'd rather not make holiday candles. (The candles above are examples, the ones we create will be slightly larger) Check my website for more details:

PhillyInkers Fall Fest - Stamping on Candles

This is the third project I created for the Fall Fest. It features the Pines and Pointsettias stamp set (Wood 123762 or clear-123764). I added the details to the candles with my embossing gun. Then I created the box to add the candles to. And lastly the finished project complete with Real Red satin ribbon and a tag from the "Tags til Christmas" (wood-120847 or clear -121169).

I am happy with how it turned out! Stay tuned for a class featuring this technique coming in the near future!

PhillyInkers Fall Fest - Spice Cake Tablet Holder

This is actually the first item I came up with for a display for the Fall Fest. This is also a tablet holder made from a Clear Mount Stamp case. This one features the new Designer Series Paper (DSP) Spice Cake (124003) as well as Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Pool Party Cardstock. The "g" is from the "Lovely Letters" alphabet
(115030) and is matted on circles punched from the circle punches as well as the scallop circle punch. Again inside I have the envelopes, this time Very Vanilla

This is another option for the Clear Mount Case tablet holder class I will be offering int he future. Contact me for details.

PhillyInkers Fall Fest Christmas Tablet Holder

I was honored when my Upline Claire Lawrence, and fellow PhillyInker Kristin Kortonick, asked me to be a demonstrator for our Philly Inker's Fall Fest on October 1st. But I have to say, I was also a bit nervous! I decided to take Christmas as my theme, and I wanted to show different Teachers/Co-Workers gifts. This was the second item I came up with. It is a tablet holder made out of one of Stampin' Up's Clear Mount stamp case!! This one features real red cardstock which was embossed using the new embossing folder called "Snow Burst" (124096). I didn't have any of the new Christmas Designer Series papers, so instead I went with this piece from the new hostess pack of DSP paper called "Cheerful Treat". (I love that this is in 12 x 12 as opposed to the old hostess packs which were 6x6.) I stamped the star image from the new "The Sounding Joy" stamp set (wood-121967, or clear 121979). I then stamped the "Joy" from the same set in Craft Real Red ink, and embossed using the Iridescent Ice embossing powder (101930). This was stamped on Whisper White and then matted on Real Red and Chocolate Chip Cardstocks. On the side I added some Whisper white ribbon and the new Mini Jingle Bells (124116). In the second picture you can see I added pockets on the left hand side using the Whisper White (107301) envelopes, which I sealed and cut down. I added tabs using the Round Tab punch. I added a tablet and a "golf" pencil to complete the set.

I will be offering a class to create one of these tablet holders in the near future! Contact me for details!
