Come to Bethlehem with Bouncing Brayer

Tonight, I had a wonderful stamp club class with a group of wonderful women. Tonight's class was the last class I'll teach for 2012. So to end the year with a bang, we're going to do a little bouncing. For this month's stamp club technique we crafted this card using the bouncing brayer.

The northern star was first embossed and then had the background inked using the bouncing brayer technique.

Very simple!! You'll always need simple especially if you are making 20+ Christmas tags!

Santa's Little Helper Service

Are you getting those Christmas gifts ready? How about getting your gift packaging needs ready? Here's a quick project to add a little kick to just regular ribbon and paper wrapping. And it is very ecological too!!
Using the the Snow Flurry Bigz Die, I layered newspaper and craft wrapping paper and rolled it into the Big Shot. Remember you can do 10 layers of paper at once through the Big Shot! To put it all together, I poked a hole in the middle and pulled a brad through.

    MY HASHI Fabric Chopstick Holder

    As today's Creative Wednesday project I am featuring an item I sold at a craft fair 2 weekends ago at the Nikkei Cultural Centre. I had to feature an item that is Japanese related in order to qualify for a table at the annual craft fair. My special piece of my table were cute chopstick holders called MY HASHI. In Japan, it is a recent trend to bring your own chopsticks to restaurants instead of using the disposable bamboo chopsticks.  "Designer MY HASHI" are even endorsed by celebrities in Japan.
    My Hashi chopstick holder Stampin Up Ida Chan
    The chopsticks are placed at the corner of the fabric holder and rolled up and tied tight with the side ribbon. The holder can even hold a set of fork and knife. It's a perfect gift for the tree huggers out there!  Stop the use of disposable utensils!! BYOU! Bring your own utensils! I hope to see Vancouver to follow this eco-friendly trend soon.
    My favourite designs are the Flirtatious and Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric MY HASHI.
    My Hashi chopstick holder Stampin Up Ida Chan

    I'll have one more craft fair for the 2012 holiday. My next table will be at the Buckingham Elementary School Craft Fair on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 10am - 3pm.

    Festival of Prints Wednesday

    I would like to start off with apologizing with my delays in posting my recent Creative Wednesdays. I just started a new full-time job last week and am adjusting to a new schedule of routine in balancing a 7am-3pm job, a crafting business and part-time student life. I didn't get a chance to craft until today after work so thank you for your patience.

    A great paper bundle for just $8.50 is the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalogue. The paper is what I am featuring in my Creative Wednesday project.
    Festival of Prints Christmas Card by Ida Chan Vancouver Stampin' Up!
    The Festival of Prints paper features 24 different patterns and each pack contains 48 sheets in 4-1/2" x 6-1/2". I ran the paper through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die. I took white baker's twine and rolled it on the top of a Real Red ink pad to dye it red.

    Reminder that there are only 6 weeks left until Christmas! Are you ready?!

    Birds of a Feather

    Birds have been a trend for a while now but the Designer Series Paper (DSP) Birds of a Feather introduces a new approach to reinventing the bird trend to the world of crafting. The birds in this DSP are made into cute cartoon-like birds in soft subtle colours yet leaves a chic style that is easy on everyone's eyes. 
    As my Creative Wednesday showcase, I am revealing the other Stamp Club card I did last week. Using a strip of the Birds of a Feather DSP, I added the marbling effect to the paper.  I added texture embossing and bordered the paper with the scallop punch. To complete the card I added the four frames stamp and embellished as shown.
    Thanks for joining me for another Creative Wednesday! Come back next week for more!
