SASSSC Christmas card swap

SASSSC (Simple and Serious Stampers Swap Club, pronounced sassy) met today for our Christmas card swap. We completed our first year as a swap club last month. This was our first meeting of our second year and I am proud to say we have 3 new members!!! Now our group is complete with 12 members.

We have a demonstration, swap, door prize, food, and a make and take at each meeting. This month Mary was in charge of the Make and Take. I snapped this picture of her getting set up. I think she was doing a Make-up and take, lol!!!! No seriously, she showed us how to make this pull and push-up card. Really simple. Of course she has cut all the paper, so it was super simple.

Annie demonstrated the Faux Wax Seal technique.

1. Cut out the shape you want for your seal. Using punches is easiest.
2. Use the negative of the cutout to cover the VersaMark pad. This will allow your pad to only have the shape you desire exposed.
3. Ink your cardstock by pressing onto the partially covered VersMark.
4. Emboss the shape with your desired metallic embossing powder 4 or more times. I was looking over her shoulder to get this shot. She was not doing tricks and standing on her head!
5. Quickly stamp your image into the warm melted embossing medium.

6. Use the punch to cut out your finished shape.

Here are the Christmas cards we swapped.
