So NOT a Traditional Christmas Card

 Hi All!
Any of you have cheeky friends that pretty Christmas cards just won't do? Well Stampotique and Dylusions make the most fabulous tongue in cheek stamps for just that purpose!  The top two pictures are cards made in my "Not So Traditional Card Class" the other night. There is a ton of techniques on these two cards, but they are easy to make. Both used the Dylusions Christmas Background and Christmas Words ( SO FUNNY) stamp sets. The Tags use the Words set, and the Christmas Boarders Set.  All the projects used Dylusions Ink Sprays to make the bases. I know its hard to see all the details, but everything is highlighted with Gelly and Glaze Pens, Liquid Pearls and Glossy Accents.
All the main images of the people are from Stampotique Daniel Torrente Line.  I LOVE these stamps. They look so forlorn and woo's me.  I regularly place orders of Stampotique stamps in the shop, if you have any requests, please let me know.  A 50% deposit will be required upon ordering.

Peek-a-boo Window Card

Hi All
Are you all done your Christmas Cards yet? If not this is a nice easy one for you to create. If you're like me, you get bored making a whole bunch of the same card.  With this design I'm not changing the layout, just the stamp. So it's stopping my "boredom" from kicking in!  It's a nice simply card to make too. I colored my inside images with my ProMarkers...(I'm proud of me, I'm getting better!) 
From L-R Stamp brands: Heartfelt Creations, Inkadinkado, and Lawn Fawn (the owl is still in stock and only $4.50!)
1: Use a Circle punch and punch out a circle on your card front.
2: Close your card, and with a pencil, lightly trace around your circle on inside of your card.
3: Stamp your image in the center of your penciled circle. Color with your Alcohol Markers
4:And for the card front, I cut a pretty icy turquoise cardstock 1/4" inch small then my card base and ran it though the big shot with my Tim Holtz Snowflake Texture fade; then I used my Starlight-Silver Brilliance pigment ink pad and rubbed it over the raised snowflakes, and added a tiny pearl to the centers of the snowflakes.  Lay it on top of your base and line your punch up to punch your window out. Pop dot ontop of your base. Finish it off with some embellishments.  I painted up some Studio Calico Wood Veneer Snowflakes with Silver Adirondack, and used some American Crafts Ribbon to finish the cards off.

One of a Kind Class for a One of a Kind Kid!

Hi All
Friday I had the pleasure of teaching a custom booking; Tegan's Birthday party! Tegan is an awesome, crafty girl who has her own sense of style! She requested a Mixed Media Class....which I was MORE then happy to design!  Each girl went home with a custom made Mixed Media book, 3 Claudine Hellmuth paints and a paint brush.  In the class I taught them how to mix CH paints to make different colors, and how not to be afraid to play and experiment with anything in THEIR book! They went home with 2 pages done in the books, and lots more to decorate and make it their own! They played with Dylusions stamps, Gelly Roll pens and Stencils. Every girls' page was unique and amazing and I was soo lucky to teach such a great group of kids!
If you would like me to design a class for your child's next birthday party, please call the shop (780)458-2422 during store hours and ask for Dawn,  or email me at, or FB me on the store page HERE.  Prices will vary depending on the project and number of kids.
