Spotlight on Christmas Stamp Class.....

When I showed the ladies last week all the beautiful card candy that I swapped at Convention, they asked if we could make some for the next class. So on Tuesday we will be making the Card Candy but The class instructions also include a Christmas Cake Gift Box or Mince pies etc and a Christmas Wall Hanging. The stamp set is called Spotlight on Christmas and the papers are merry moments.

Its also a very special day for me today!

I signed up to be a Stampin UP! Demonstrator TWO Years ago! I get to craft most days and I am loving every minute of it.

To Celebrate I am offering some Blog Candy.....

A Spotlight on Christmas stamp set.

All you need to do to Enter is Leave a Comment.

What colours are you using for your cards/projects this christmas?

This gift box is quite a size and would be idea for a homemade christmas cake or some mince pies this christmas.



Decorations are very expensive, so why not have a go at making some of your own this christmas. I used the new glitters on the chipboards letters, to that added bling.......

You can purchase the stamp class instructions on the right hand side.
Thanks for looking,
Jenny:-)xx

You have some amazing projects here! Congrats on your 2 year SU demo anniversay! I always mix and match my colours! Sometimes just the tradtional colours however I did make a card using kraft and basic black with the new whisper white craft ink. I also made one with the same colours but threw in a bit of bashful blue.

Two years on and I bet it feels like yesterday you signed up, that's the greatest thing and being able to share your passion and give inspiration to others is wonderful, thank you. I have been creating using "Old Olive" and "Real Red" for my Christmas projects.

Congrats on your 2yrs as a demo Jenny. I'm not keen on the traditional colours so I'm going for the more modern and offbeat colours including black & white and browns. Hugs Christine

Kelly said...

Congratulations on your Demo Anniversary!!! I have just found your blog recently and love it. I also love your traditional Christmas colors, Spotlight on Christmas is a wonderful set. This year I am sticking with "Lovely as a Tree" in Old Olive, with lots of BLING!

Sara said...

Your projects are inspiring as ever. If I ever get round to making any cards, I think I'm going for white or silver images on navy or black this year - striking and modern.

I've done random colours so far this year, but as Christmas is drawing nearer I'm planning on doing a bit of mass-production and am thinking of traditional red/green/cream colours

Jeanette said...

It's sad to say but Christmas cards are not going out this year. Daughter getting married two weeks before. If I was going to send cards they would be a deep read with a green that complimented. Maybe I should use the wedding colors! Cranberry, barely banana, certainly celery.

Brenda said...

Congrats on 2 years of FUN!! I am using Night of Navy and Bashful Blue with silver and the NEW Frost White Shimmer paint!!!

Terry Molineux said...

My is it really 2 years. You have gone a long way in that time and your card and projects are soooooo brilliant. You have certainly enriched my life and my love for stamping.
My colours for Christmas cards this year are the more traditional colours but I don't mind experimenting with other colours. The Blue and Cream sounds nice.

Hi! I am here again after a long absence...How many wonderful creations you made! I love the Christmas decoration above all. This year I'm trying to use all my scraps (no much money around here) so I'm using traditional red and green with some white and gold.

Hi Jen
Forgot to say that Christmas colours may be black and cream/white if I can think of something to do with the medallion stamp. But you know me until nearer the time I won't have a clue.

Hi Jenny, what an inspiration you are! Whatever you make is well thought out and beautifully finished. Mainly my cards this year are traditional, but I have also quite a few in teal, purple and pink for a little variety and of course not forgetting dazzling diamonds - my poor carpet!

Karen said...

Hi Jenny - congratulations on your 2 year anniversary with SU - they are so lucky to have you demonstrating for them. I'm going to be using Real Red/Always Artichoke and Brilliant Blue with touches of silver. Keep up the brilliant work/inspiration.

Congrats on 2 years as a SU Demonstrator! Just discovered your blog and am enjoying looking at your updates and your archives. =-) My Christmas colors this year have been real red, old olive and chocolate chip--so I'd so more on the traditional side. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Momiji said...

hi Jenny
so glad I found your blog.... thanks again for the little butterfly card. No particular colour way with my cards this year..

Sue said...

My favorite Christmas colors that I'm using this year are Real Red and Old Olive (and sort of Chocolate Chip). Have also used a lot of Garden Green, but the Old Olive seems a little softer.

Melanie said...
