October Technique Class-Thursday, October 6th at 6:30 p.m. or Friday, October 7th at 6:30 p.m.

Join me for Technique Class and make 4 projects for $10 (free for 6 month/$25 Stamp Club members or with a $50 order and $5 for my downline or with a $25 order)  Lots of variety this time!

We'll make this wreath card using the Big Shot:

This bat, created using the Petal Cone Die and Spider Web Embossing folder, was designed by Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up! co-founder. I think he's adorable!

This little turtle is a tilt card that moves from side to side for fun.

Finally we have the Epsom Salt Technique shared with me in a swap by my friend Kim Bolzenthal:

Christmas Stamp A Stack #1 September 22 at 6:30 or September 23 at noon? or September 24 at 1:00 p.m.?

Stamp A Stack events are 16 cards for $22, and you need to provide your choices (please use the bolded, colored names I gave the cards) with your RSVP by Tuesday, September 20th at 7:00 p.m.  Prepayment is typically required for a Stamp A Stack, so you will need to pay even if something comes up unforeseen for this class. (There will be a time for you to come stamp them before Christmas-we can work it out.)

The price does not include rhinestones or pearls shown as it is too difficult to predict the number I would need to order.  You should have plenty if you order just one pack and there's plenty of time before Christmas to order some for your cards. You may even see other spots to embellish that I hadn't imagined.

The Mistletoe card uses a simple mistletoe image from the Easy Events Stamp Set with Riding Hood Red, River Rock and Soft Suede as well as the Petals-a-Plenty Poinsettia embossing folder....The tiny pearls in the corner are optional and would need to be ordered and added by you after the event.

Next, we have "Over the Hills of Snow". There is a lot of tearing on this card, but very little stamping....The Black StazOn is actually reflecting the stamps nice and dark with the freshly inked Black Stazon pad.  (This striking card was CASEd from the Stampin' Up! Convention boards.)

This is a Nativity Card that uses Stampin Addicts Sketch Challenge 109 (SASC109) with the Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder.

This Star and Crown card is quick and easy!

This Come to Bethlehem Night Sky card was CASEd from the convention boards, but I didn't add glitter to the sand dunes as that stamper did.

This Always Artichoke Tree card is embossed in gold and features the new Velvet Vanilla ribbon...It was very influenced by a card by Jennifer Timko.  However, the sentiment label was created by shrinking the Decorative Label punch by punching it twice (at the top and bottom of the sentiment)....I saw the idea to create a smaller sentiment label on Patty Bennett's blog with credit given to Janine Tinklenberg and Wendy Weixler.  I just did the same thing using the long side instead to accommodate the large Merry Christmas in the Merry and Bright set.
This card requires cutting the edge from all four sides of this embossing folder layer.

This Stocking Card has the lovely Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series paper as an accent.

September QUICK Class Thursday, September 15th at 6:30 p.m. or Friday, September 16th at noon.

September Quick Class (our last until January or February) will be on Thursday, September 15th at 6:30 p.m. or Friday, September 16th at noon.  Four simple cards for $5.  I think these projects provide a nice variety of peppy and fall-themed items-I hope you do too. :)

The first card uses the Button Buddies set and the lattice die (which will look more even--I wanted to have this ready to photograph, but only cut out the shape for this card.)

These loosely stamped 2-step leaves are from the Gently Falling set, and I used Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge 109 for the layout.

I think this little snail is cute, and of course there is a Happy Birthday Wishes stamp on the inside.

Finally, this monster bookmark was CASEd from a convention swap I received, but I can't find the demonstrator's name...Many apologies!
