More Holiday Style homework

After getting the wild idea to reorganize my craft space last Friday, its been nothing but emptying, sorting, discarding, cleaning, putting away, building, putting away, and I am tired!  I had to take a break finally I was even glad to do LAUNDRY...can you imagine?   So tonight I am putting it on hold and catching up my homework for the latest offering over at Online Card Classes.   I have 3 cards for two more lesson days.

I had no "Santa" stamps until I picked up this set by Clearly Besotted, and all the images are adorable. Copic coloring  a bit of drifty inking and I put white flower soft on his had and coat, gossy accents on his boots and belt.  This card should be fun to hold for the recipient.

The next two cards are glittery...traditional and paste.
I have had trouble in the past die cutting using the double sided tape, but this time I put it on copier paper and die cut down through the release paper, since I wanted to add glitter, worked like a charm cut clean easily.  I used the fabulous glitter ritz micro-fine glitter for the greeting, some wink of stella and glossy accents on the holly berries and mounted it all on a woodgrained cardstock panel.  There is a bit of grey and white dotted paper as a grounding element. The die is from Avery Elle.

This is the second time I have gotten out the gold bo bunny glitter paste. I love the look of it using the Tim Holtz stencil.  I mounted the panel on a white card base and added the black sentiment strip, sentiment by CTMH.

That's it I am caught up on homework.  Have a fabulous day, and thanks for stopping by.


  1. all your cards are wonderful Cat - but the gold one is especially gorgeous!

  2. Lovey homework! Thanks for keeping up so I can see what I'm missing. :)

  3. Wow! These are fantastic! Did you find the Bo Bunny paste to take longer to dry than other pastes? I used it on a project and it took overnight to dry.

    1. Jean, it was fairly thin. I set it I front of my laptop exhaust fan and it was dry enough to put the sentiment on after about 15 minutes.

  4. Well I give you an A++ on your homework. :D These are seriously so cute - the masking in the first one is sheer perfection and you know I'm an avid admirer of all things glitter so your last two cards get a big thumbs up!

  5. First of all, well done on the craft room reorganization! I swear I like doing that more than I like making cards! It feels so awesome when you are done, especially for you now that hubby has moved all his cra, er, important stuff out of your creative way! Speaking of creative, wow, these are all magnificent, Cat!! You are rocking the texture, but keeping your cards CAS!! I have that Seasons Greeting die, so I loved your tip and how you cut it and it's so cool glittered like that - thank you!! Happy Thanksgiving! Hugs, Darnell

  6. Gold stars, Cat!!! I'm a bit partial to the one using your [now famous] wood-grain cardstock! It's calling me....

  7. You get an A+, Cat! I absolutely adore the 2 glittery cards--striking & beautiful!
