Happy New Year!!

Relaxing in the Oasis


Take 5! SOS Stamp Club!

Our 8 (plus me) SOS Stampers met last evening to create 5 holiday projects!  (We missed Joyce who had to work at "that other craft store".  Lol)
We created 2 cards, front and inside, and stamped the envelopes, 2 special gift tags and a small treat bag!  We had 5 separate stations set up in my dining room, though if we do such a project again, I'd like to have 1 or 2 of the stations in the actual Stampin' Oasis room that is adjacent to the dining room.  We had lots of fun and giggles and made a really big mess--a sure sign of a fun and successful evening!  Thank you SOS members for such a fun time!!!!
Donna, Claudia and Barbara before the round robin mayhem!

Teri, a quick-study new stamper, Kris, and Michelle.  Claudia brought a delicious sweet potato pie!  Kris also brought jello in the shape of a brain!  How fun!  Thank you Kris and Joyce!!

Here is our random circles Christmas card with a mini-envelope (Petal Punch) and a mini-message (Tiny Tags).

Decorate the tree and add some Gold Waffle paper for good measure!!

Here's our Sweet Snowglobe gift tag that features the new Chunky Gold Glitter!!

Here's our pretty, large gift tag or card front.  We used the Level 3 Hostess Set from the Holiday Mini and the Soft Ivy Stampin' Around Wheel with Always Artichoke ink.  The first visitor to leave a comment will win a fun doorprize!

Here's our fun treat bag!  The Rich Razzleberry Embossing Powder was created with Clear Embossing Powder and the Razzleberry Stampin Pastel.  I used a stylus to scrape the back of the pastel, shook it up and--Voila!!

Kris brought some spoooooky snacks!  Spooky but delish!!  Here is her gremlin cream cheese ball!  Yum! (But almost too cute to eat!!)

Take 3 Sunday Open House

Last weekend we had a great time creating two cards and a "special" gift tag!  We used silver embossing powder for Dasher's antlers and clear embossing powder for the Season of Joy Christmas tree.  We loved using the Holly Jolly DSP , the gold waffle paper, the new Decorative Label Punch, and the scallop border punch!  We also enjoyed mulled cider and Christmas cookies!
