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!
