Christmas Card Class

Hi Stamping Friends.  I know it's a little early for Christmas, but I do have the non-procrastinators that like to get a good start on making their cards.  These are the first set of cards we made in our Christmas card-making class.  The top two are CASED, the other two are not.

If you would be interested in joining us for the next Christmas Card-making classes, they are being held the third Wednesday and Saturday of the next months through November.  Attend all of them or just one!  If you are interested in being a part of virtual club, click here and I'll send more details.

For You Thinlets

Hi Stamping Friends.  Sorry for the lapse in posts ... life likes to interfere!  But I have been "playing" with my new toys.   I'm lovin' the new thinlets.  This card features the label thinlet.  Plus, the label framelits nest nicely in them as well.  The colors are pistachio pudding, island indigo, very vanilla, and Venetian Romance designer paper.  The flowers are stamped with the Flower Shop stamp and punch with the pansy punch.  The lace border is made using the Finishing Touches Edgelits™.  The stamp set for the "For You" is from the Apothecary set.

Virtual Stamp Club

Hi Stamping Friends.  Are you ready for something new?  A virtual stamp club!  Here's how it works ... 

Build your stamp collection with a new stamp set every month! Along with each stamp set, you'll receive three COMPLETED CARD SAMPLES using the featured stamp set each month or three CARD KITS (along with the featured stamp set) your choice ... cards or kits.

Plus, you'll get a full color photo and list of supplies for each card (including measurements) so you can use your own card stock and supplies to duplicate the cards at home. 

Each month you'll receive a package in the mail that includes:
  • Stamp Set of the Month -- brand new Clear Mount stamp set valued between $14.95-$18.95**
  • Three Handmade Cards -- completed cards created with the featured stamp set
    OR Three Card Kits (die cutting, shape punching, and textured embossing will be completed for you, as well as all embellishments except adhesive, but no stamped images -- it's against Stampin' Up! compliance policy)
  • Full Color Printout -- photo and supply list for each card
** Stamp sets may be substituted if you let me know by the deadline.

As part of this new club launch, I will start a new video tutorial series featuring at least one of the club projects!

Cost for Stamp of the Month Club is $30 per month. When you participate in 3 consecutive months, you'll get $5 off the 4th month!
Anyone can join, at anytime... no matter where you live in the US (sorry US only). Members will be notified of everything via email.

Click here to contact me or call me if you have any questions at 414-217-7955.

Calm Christmas

Hi Stamping friends.  It's not too early for Christmas, is it?  I typically wait until the last minute, but I know there are many people that get right on it ... so here is my first Christmas card that we will be making in an upcoming class, using new products from the Holiday Catalog.

The colors are pool party, whisper white, and silver.  The patterned paper is from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack (132183).  The "Merry" is just set on top of there for now, which was made using the new Expressions Thinlits Dies (132171)  These dies are really easy to use (I had my doubts if they would be difficult to remove from the die or not)....but I had no problems.  The dove is from Calm Christmas (Wood 132736, Clear 132739) and is embossed with silver embossing powder.  The Silver 1/8" Ribbon (132137) is a breeze to tie.  No wires and it's not stiff.  The circles are cut with the Circles Collection (130911) framelits.

If you are interested in any of my upcoming Christmas classes, they are posted here.

New Thinlits Card Dies

Hi Stamping Friends.  Here is a new product that is so cool! They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.

There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them!  These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)
With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!
  • Promote mass production of these impressive "flip" cards. They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards. You can even help your customers select all the supplies they will need to create their cards.
  • The main shape in the cards (circle and label) can work with a lot of our stamp images so you can create tons of different kinds of cards using many different stamp sets. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:
Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):
  • Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)
Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):
  • Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W)
  • Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)
Both card dies pair well with:
  • Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  • Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  • Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  • Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)
  • These dies also work well with our new magnetic platform (item 130658) so you can place the dies exactly where you want them!
