OCC Holiday Card Workshop–Day 3!

Hello Friends!

Back once again to share a few cards that I’ve created as my “homework” for the Holiday Card Workshop that I’m taking from Online Card Classes!  I’m seriously enjoying the videos and the samples that the instructors have created for our inspiration.  It’s really helping to boost my mojo again, which makes me beyond happy.  So let’s get to it, shall we?!

The theme of Day 3 was Clean and Simple.  Laura Bassen did a super fun video demonstrating how she creates her signature plaid stamping.  It was fun to watch, but in all honesty, I’m looking to create cards that I can mass produce for sending to family and friends.  So I wimped out and just used some designer paper in place of the plaid.  This literally took me two minutes!!  I’ll list all of the products I used for each project at the bottom of this post.

Shari Carroll shared a great video demonstrating how to stamp on an angle using a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I cheated and didn’t use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I didn’t have a problem eyeballing the placement of the snowflakes, so I didn’t feel like I needed one.  But I love the look and will most definitely be using this in my future designs.  Oh, and that upper panel is a steel grey – not black.  UGH!  LOL

After watching all of the videos, I decided to see if I could create a CAS holiday card of my own.  I’m pretty darned happy with this, and could see myself reproducing this for our holiday cards.  It really was pretty easy!

Well, that’s it!  I have another fun (and hopefully productive) day of stamping planned for today!  Thanks for stopping by – I hope that you’re enjoying your weekend!!  XOXO
