Christmas Cards!

It is never too early to start thinking about your Christmas Cards. I can hand make them for you. You will be the envy of the family/friends circle by giving hand made Christmas Cards.
Here is just a sampling of what can be done. The ideas flowing and the possibilities are endless!
We can come up with a designer that fits your style and budget, all while looking amazing!! Whether you like vintage, modern, cutesie, or classic we can make a card you will be proud of sending instead of the big box special that are so generic and boring.

Give me a call or email and I will work something out for you.

Happy Stamping!

PS. Pricing of cards will vary depending on how much bling you want you cards to have. I have to cover the cost of supplies.

More Halloween Fun!

I got a note form Dillan's preschool last week saying that they were having a Halloween party on the 29th and that each child was asked to bring 36 treats to share with all the other kids/classes at the school. I decided that it was a good opportunity to use the Candy Wrapper Die that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

It uses the regular size cutting pads and a Big Shot. I think it is sooo cute! I have only made 18 of the 36 needed for Friday's party, but that was just one sitting. The creases are done to perfection (especially if you use the crease pad). It is a tad time consuming if you are doing lots of them because you have to bend all the creases in the right direction (it is way easier than it sounds...just takes a bit of time). But look how awesome they turn out! I used the bats from the Wicked Cool halloween stamp set to stamp the outside of the wrapper and I think it turned out great. I didn't want to do too much since 3 and 4 year olds are just going to rip into them to find what is inside. But in Dillan's opinion, "Oooh! They are so pretty!" He is excited to take them to school next week.

Happy Stamping, and Die Cutting!

The last Day of Gratitude Card

So finally finished off the last card for the Day of Gratitude class. If you are still interesting in making the cards and getting the stamp set, just send me an email. Like I said in the last post with the other sample cards from the class...this set is for way more than just "fall" things. I LOVE it!

The idea for the last card came from a blog that I follow. I loved the technique so much and I will do it again in varying colors as well. You ink the stamp in the lighter color (Baja Breeze) and then use a sponge dauber to sponge the darker color over the top of the lighter ink right on the stamp....then stamp it on the paper of course! It looks amazing! Thanks to Connie for this one. She had an awesome brad on hers and I used a pearl since I didn't have a brad handy.

Happy Stamping!

Day of Gratitude Stamp Class

This post is slightly late, the class is this week. But I thought I would show you have versatile this stamp set is. Day of Gratitude is in the current Holiday Mini Catalog and is the quintessential fall stamp is so much more!

I did some fall cards for the class, but then made a few samples of other types of cards that could be done with this set that aren't necessarily fall oriented. I am in love with the one done in Marina Mist. It is so elegant, and with a switch of the sentiment on it you could use it for just about anything.
The class is $22 and includes a clear mount Day of Gratitude stamp set. We will be making these 4 cards and one more. There is still time to order your stamp set and we can set up a date to get together to assemble them. You just need to let me know by Saturday the 23rd.

Happy Stamping!

Stampin' Up! has just added TONS of new stuff to the clearance rack. If you are looking for retired colors of ink or card stock, retired punches, on board accents and books, ribbon, brads, buttons, and my favorite score...watercolor wonder crayons....YOU MUST HURRY. Supplies are limited and on a first come first serve basis.

Order off my website by clicking the link here! The deal runs from today until October 18th, but "while supplies last." If you have done the clearance rack before you will know that lots will be gone in the next 24 hours. Hurry!

Happy Stamping...for cheap!


PS. I added in there WaterColor Wonder Crayons, but I have to tell you the deal I got. I don't have a set. The color renovation was announced shortly after I became a demo and I decided to hold off and purchase the new colors. We all know they are having delays with the new crayons due to the factory moving, but I want them now! So, I purchased the 4 different sets on the clearance rack for $7.99 each and then I will add the new color renovation kit to it when the new ones come available....making it cheaper (for more crayons) than waiting to buy the new 4 packs at $19.95 each!
