MMMM

I LOVE teaching others to do art!

Once a year before Christmas time me and my friend host a Christmas Card making Party to teach others to handmake different designs of cards. It has been so fun, but last year we skipped it because planning ahead didn't happen. And the year before that my cards were a little too complex for others to want to learn... mind you they all did great and ended up LOVING their cards, but they thought I was crazy for putting so much work into the designs......

Well this year since I will be placing an order with Stampendous very soon I am deciding to plan ahead, and purchase some of their Christmas stamps in a hope to simply things a bit. I will just teach more stamping and less paper piecing, or sewing, lol! These are the ones I am planning on purchasing... let me know what you think. Which is your favorite? And which would you choose last?

I love the quote written out in the shape of a Christmas tree, too cute. I also like the series of three starting with 'a star led the way'. The snowmen & reindeer are also cute. I guess the ones I would choose last are the cat ones because I don't have any pets. They are cute to send to cat lovers though. I may not have been much help huh, sorry! Quick question, will you be posting these Christmas card tutorials? I know you can't lend your stamps out to everyone but seeing the finished product would be fun. I would love to do more handmade cards but am just not so creative with making them. Much more challenging than scrapbooking for me.

I like the tree shaped quote and the cats bearing gifts best. They are all cute.

Can't wait to see what you'll do with these stamps!

I had-stamped cards couple of years ago... it too forever. Don't know if I am that motivated or not, I think I might focus on catching up my daughter's scrapbook and just design a card on shutterfly. We'll see...

Funny that you would mention this because I was just thinking this morning that I need to start my Christmas cards for this year. I didn't make them last year, so I want to be sure to get them done for this year. I make them assembly line style, over a couple of days.

The stamp sets I like are the "May the Christ of Christmas" and "A Star Led the Way".

Please show the finished card when you get a chance.

Having a Christmas cardmaking class is a wonderful idea. And, stamping is certainly something everyone can do.

As for the stamps here: I really like the reindeers touching noses and the baby Jesus in a manger.
