March Club and Class March 2nd at 3:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m.

Class is $10, or $5 with a $25 purchase, FREE with a $50 purchase, or FREE for 6 month/$25 club members. It is also only $5 for a demonstrator who is in my first, second or third level. 
Please let me know if you are coming and at which time, so I may cut enough projects and have enough spots around the table. Remember to bring your favorite multipurpose adhesive too.

For this card we'll use the Cool Treats Stamp Set, Frozen Treats Framelits and Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Following the layout/sketch for MojoMonday Sketch 483 (MOJO483), made this card easy to fill with my favorite patterns of designer series paper from the pack.  The circles used the Circle Framelits and Stitched Circle Framelits, and the Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched Ribbon finish it nicely. 

I will allow everyone at March Stamp Club and Class to add some of the Sprinkles Embellishments if they'd like as well.  I was going for a clean/simpler look this time, so I left the image plain.



A similar card is this Tasty Trucks design with the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper uses SC632 from Splitcoaststampers.com.


This card is of course inspired by the brayered background on page 10 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I used more muted colors, and combined some colors as well. We'll use the Sponge Brayers for this card as well as the Watercolor Pencils and Blender pens. The flower size will vary based on which one you choose. You can make decisions about the embellishments to make the card your own.  I hope everyone enjoys doing that. The card is lined with Pool Party.

February All Occasion Stamp A Stack February 23 at 6:30 p.m.

February 23 at 6:30 p.m. All Occasion Stamp A Stack

Stamp A Stack is $25 for 16 cards, and you may select up to 4 card styles which allows you to pick your favorites. Please provide your choices by using the name I’ve listed above the card and the number of each you’d like to make. 

I require prepayment for Stamp A Stacks because it requires me to spend time cutting, and the cardstock is specifically cut for the cards you are making. Payment is due no later than the 22nd, but earlier is preferred. You may get your payment to me by mail or drop it off at my house (between the storm door and door). I have stocked my cardstock well, but it is possible that I might run out of one or another cardstock so it could be first come first serve for choices.

Please bring your own general purpose adhesive as I’ve asked my customers to do since Stampin’ Up! discontinued the glue sticks this year.  You may use double-sided tape, glue stick or tape runner-your choice.  I provide liquid glue, glue dots and dimensionals (pop dots) as needed for all classes.


BRIGHT CAKE

HAPPY CELEBRATE (These two cards are the same.. You choose when you arrive which one or both to emboss with the Big Shot.)



FLOWER Thank You/B-day/Sympathy

This card has a sympathy sentiment, but of course that can be changed easily. Both the "Happy Birthday Wishes" and the "Thanks for being you." sentiments from the Avant Garden stamp set fit the sentiment banner as well. It uses splitcoast sketch challenge SC632.



Lacey Collage Anniversary/Wedding/Birthday

This card has a spot on the sentiment layer in which either Mr. and Mrs. (shown) or Happy Birthday will fit nicely.  

Inside the card, you can choose to put Congratulations or Happy Anniversary.  This card uses in addition to the Delicate Details and That's The Tag Stamp Sets, the Silver and White Sale-A-Bration ribbon.The design was CASEd from Jessica Winter, a Stampin' Up! Artisan Designer.  

You will also be welcome to add a smattering of silver sequins if you'd like. The card may look bulky, but it will mail for the regular rate.



Crumb Cake Truck

You may also choose one of these masculine designs.  You may choose Happy Birthday or Thinking of You with either the Old Truck or Old Car. The Old Car will have a Crumb Cake layer under it if you choose it.



Red and Blue Hot Air Balloons

There are so many great sentiments which can be interchanged on this card. Sending Smiles Across the Miles and You Soar Above the Rest would be cute too.


BABY Masculine or BABY Feminine

For this next card, you may choose Masculine or Feminine, but I do need a number for each. The Boy card is Soft Sky, and the Girl card is Blushing Bride. Two Boy cards and two Girl cards would count as one choice. You don't have to make 4 of each, k?

Warning-This card may be too much for some crafters. giggle  At class this week we'll make this card. You are welcome to stop at any point if you think I've gone too far on this card.  This card is a horizontal gatefold with the tent and the Ferris Wheel cut by hand.  I used the matching Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishments kit with this set.

 

On the inside I used the Suite Sentiments set's Enjoy Life and Have Fun as well as a the hot air balloons from the Lift Me Up set.


Next we'll make this birthday card with the Cake Crazy set. The cool edge is made with the Sale-A-Bration set Delicate Details.  The idea came from a German Demonstrator blog, Claudias Ecke by Claudia Christensen. So this card is a CASE of her great mitered corners post it technique. I hope everyone enjoys making this card at class soon!



We'll also make one of these Valentine's cards. You can choose the sentiment.

Don't forget Sale-A-Bration begins this month!

We'll make this hot air balloon calendar first.  (I have already cut these so I think it will go pretty quickly.)



Next we'll jump right in with Valentine Cards. Yes, this is a Valentine-palooza!  No problem if you'd like to leave off any of these items if you think it is too much.

I used the Love Notes Framelits and the Sealed with Love Stamp Set (Sealed with Love Bundle) as well as the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  There are dozens of ways to use these items and so many possible combinations of sentiments that I think you can make a card or treat for every kind of Valentine you have!  I also used the stitched circle framelits. I just love the added texture it gives.




Finally, we'll use the new Watercolor Pencils for the card using the Hey Chick Sale-A-Bration set.  I made a Rhode Island Red and a Plymouth Rock. So silly...You can see the new 1/8 inch grosgrain Real Red Ribbon too.

Stamp Club and Class Thursday, November 3rd at 3:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m.

Stamp Club and Class Thursday, November 3rd at 3:30 p.m. or 6:30 p.m.

Class is $10, or $5 with a $25 purchase, FREE with a $50 purchase, or FREE for 6 month/$25 club members. It is also only $5 for a demonstrator who is in my first, second or third level. 
Please let me know if you are coming and at which time, so I may cut enough projects and have enough spots around the table. 
We'll make three Shake It Up! projects, and I hope you like them!

First, is this Santa Shaker.  I was inspired by cards by Patty Bennett and Cindy Elam.  I had to be finicky though and changed some things.



Next, we'll make this Gingerbread House and Gingerbread Man shaker inspired by Randi Collins. I changed her Santa to a Gingerbread man and most of the colors on the card. I also added the Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon.

Finally, we'll create this ornament card using the Merriest Wishes Set and the Merry Tags Framelits Dies with the lovely PIne Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Soft Sky and rubbed with Garden Green Ink. I had to use the circle dies as well since the ornament was a bit small. I love the Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder and the White and Red Metallic Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine too.
