Another Crafty Weekend with a Friend...


 Another crafty weekend with a friend... this time Deb Fischer. Here's what we accomplished. My take-away was a dozen completed and Deb's was seventeen. We did great!
 
First, we started with fabric. These are from a bolt Deb just picked up recently at Farmhouse Memories in PA. I made five with the kittens and therefore, completing my personal challenge to make five Christmas cards every month. The background is an embossed piece AND white paper, ripped to appear like snow. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set...

From the same bolt of fabric. I added Glossy Accents to the hanging stars but the fabric soaked most of it up. There are also Stickles randomly about the background to appear as snow...

 AND, I did what Deb does alot, fussy-cut images to "pop" on to the original image. The fox, deer and his scarf are popped. WAY out of my comfort zone but outstanding result...
 
THEN, we decided to start working on the Online Card Class called "Rainbow Maker" that we are both signed up to do. Here's us being goofy with our GIANT lollipops. It's a rainbow class, right? CAN'T do it without rainbow lollipops... :)
 
 
  From Lessons 1 and 2. We made NINE backgrounds in Lesson #1 but were only shown what to do with three of them. Maybe something comes up later? The far right card is from Lesson #2. We didn't finish Lesson #2 so I'll be getting back to that shortly... 

Then Sunday, we worked on the Gina K. Designs kit, Sentimental Summer, that I purchased while at Junkie Fest. We followed her video which can be found on Stamp TV (link HERE) and used my Prismacolors. I really, really loved this. I liked the technique we used to make the background fence too... AWESOME SAUCE!
 
Such a versatile and adorable kit. There's still a whole nother stamp set to play with...
 
SOOOO, another fun weekend with company! Thanks for taking a look and I'd LOVE you to leave a comment and tell me what you liked best... :)

  1. Oh my goodness, the snow scenes are fabulous. I love the popped up elements and the sparkly dots of snow. You two are SO clever. Of course, I love the rainbow effects on the other ones. And I think I LIKE the pic of the two of you enjoying the shenanigans the best. Knowing you had a blast just makes me so happy. Wish I could come next time. oxox

  4. I don't know if you will see this since it's almost the end of Sept, but did you use that new fabric stabilizer on the fabric? supposed to make the fabric really stiff?
