Lizzy's Scraptastic Day

Yesterday, I spent the day making cards at Lizzy's Scraptastic Day I previously posted about here. It was so much fun, with good company, great food, and awesome giveaways.

I decided to work on some Christmas cards and practice colouring with my Copics and using my new Big Shot.

Here are the cards I made using the Snow Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm. The last one is one I made at home when my sister and niece came over for some card making.

The next 2 cards were a class taught by Carmen Peters who is a Stampin' Up demonstrator. They were so much fun!

The first is an owl card made using several different dies and punches from Stampin' Up. A new technique I hadn't used yet was sponging which we did to distress/emphasize the edges. I think it looks pretty cool.

The next card is a pop up card using Stampin' Up's ornament set on the front and a pop up tree using a Stampin' Up die. My kids think I was very clever but it is just a die designed to make the pop up tree. Actually, I felt like my fingers didn't want to cooperate when I was putting this together.

And I couldn't resist this final shot of all my cards lined up on the fireplace mantel. Enjoy
