Also, I forgot to mention yesterday, both cards were sprayed with my spritzer bottle with a little champagne mist mixed with rubbing alcohol to give a little glimmer!

- the early espresso background is SU's coordination card stock which was run through the big shot with the argyle impressions folder and then sanded.
- the bow is another paper bow I made...this one using the large oval punch and the Festival of Prints dsp pack.
- the shapes for the sentiment and matt were all cut with the apothecary accent framelits and the big shot.

The other technique that I wanted to show my stampin' ladies was how to make a paper ribbon. The seem to be in vogue right now... Thie one was made with the extra large oval punch and some of the Snow Festival DSP.
Also, the lid of lid of the box was stamped with the new bold snowflake single stamp using the Illuminate ink that can be found in the Holiday catalog.
As for what's inside the box, well that's club project #2 and you'll just have to wait for tomorrow for that;)

The last Christmas banner I made, said 'noel'...and I'm so in love with everything French, you are probably wondering why I picked JOY this year... Well (if you don't mind me sharing a little personally here), I think Christmas or not it's a word I need to focus on. The Bible says 'The joy of the Lord is our strength'. I want to enter into what that really means. I've been singing Kari Jobe's 'Joyfully' a lot lately and so I thought I'd just share that with you here too in case you were interested:

Have you wanted to start using the embossing folders, but haven't splurged for the big shot yet? Or, do you have a big shot but would like a smaller solution for quick embossing on the go, well today I might just have the solution. Stampin Up has this limited time/limited supply offer:
Due to our partnership with Sizzix, we are pleased to be able to offer a test run of the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine in our North American markets. We have 4,000 available to be sold only while supplies last. If this product test goes well, we may offer the Texture Boutique again in the future.
The Texture Boutique works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece. This machine embosses only; it does not die cut. Because this is a product test, the Texture Boutique is not branded with the Stampin' Up! logo. It comes in Sizzix packaging and is the same color and design that is sold in stores. We recommend you read the included instructions before using the Texture Boutique and that you pass the same recommendation on to customers who purchase it.
'Tis the season of giving, and the Texture Boutique makes a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to create their own elegant embossed art. To help you with your gift-giving needs, we're offering a special value bundle that saves you $10.90. If you prefer, you can also purchase the Texture Boutique alone. Looking for stocking stuffers? Pick up some additional embossing folders.

here and here. I thought I would also show the ladies how to make some other cute ornaments too, and given that the ornament keepsake is quite time intensive, I came up with these ones that are not.

I guess I'm getting more into the holiday cards now for 2 main reasons:

This is a preview of this year's Christmas Stamp-a-stack which I am hosting on Thursday December 6th at 7pm (please RSVP by November 24th). The whole idea of a 'stamp a stack' is to get together and make a bunch of cards using just a few core products so you can make multiples of each in a fairly short period of time.
If you would like to join in, please be sure to contact me (phone/email/comment) as space is limited.
Cost is as follows:
