Time to Escape and stamp …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So how did you enjoy the card and stamping technique I share with you yesterday? Are you interested in seeing the latest products, trends and stamping techniques … how about “hands on” instruction?

I am in the process of setting up my 2018-19 Stamping Clubs and would like to invite  you to join me! This is how it works …

Clubs begin in September 2018 ….  Our club requires a commitment to the group: We meet only 1 night per “month” and each participant agrees to purchase a minimum (depends on number of attendees in club) but never more than $25. Clubs run from September through June.  We take the summer off … unless we have a group of 6 and they want to run year round (that is up to my group).

What you get as a member … A minimum of 2 projects (usually cards) per month (pre-cut) with envelopes and Free personal instruction. As a club member, you will receive “Hostess Benefits” on your month to spend as you wish!!  I will provide a technique sheet or instruction sheet when applicable to a class but is not done for each class.  As an additional perk for being my Club Member, I offer discounts to other stamping events.

You’ll have a great time and meet some amazing new people! Join us and take some time out for yourself!!  It’s just a single night a month and the experience, fun and relaxation is good for your health and much cheaper than therapy!!

The clubs will be held at my Stampin’ Studio so you have no preparation at your home … just grab your stamp bag and join us!!  All you need to bring is your basic tool kit: Favorite adhesive, scissors, etc.  I supply all the projects pre-cut and ready for you. If you’re the hostess that month, keep your treats simple and a bottle of water is fine.

Let me know if this is something you are interested in … We’d love to have you join us! Here are the evenings at morning sessions that have openings at this time …

  • Wednesday Night 6:30 – 8 pm
  • Thursday Night 6:30 – 8 pm
  • Saturday Morning 9 am – 10:30

I can also schedule a private party for you and your friends … Minimum 8 people.

I’m glad you’ve read this to the end … I thank you very much.

Have a fabulous day ~

Simply Sunday: Christmas Season

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So what did you think of the sneak peeks? Oh my … this is an awesome catalog, and I have one coming to you! I’m trying to wait patiently for my pre-order to come … then I can play!  Meanwhile ~ We have the exciting “Share Your Season” Promotion and I have another beautiful card to share with you today!!

Today’s card celebrates the Christmas season (Thursday I shared my Autumn card using the watercolor pencils and blender pen). It’s time to share how the fabulous Stampin’ Blends markers work with this stamp set and coordinating framelit dies.

I began with the middle sized frame in the die set and cut it out of Whisper White. I then stamped the spray of Holly near the bottom (fits right in) then turned it 180 and stamped it again.  When I colored the leaves I started with the Old Olive Light first then just added a dash of the Old Olive dark on the center line of the leaf and then went back over with the Light to blend it in.

A touch of Real Red on the holly berries and Daffodil Delight on the sprigs and your coloring is complete! I added just a hint of the Wink of Stella to give it a little glitz.

The card base is Old Olive cardstock and I created a focal point with a swatch of 3″ x 4 1/4″ Under the Mistletoe Designer Series paper and a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Real Red mat. Then our greeting was simply popped up onto the card and your done!! Simple and Sweet … no hassle, just a fun and easy coloring project.

So here are the two cards I made to far with the Blended Seasons Stamp set and Stitched Season framelits, and if you like these …

You won’t want to miss the amazing cards that we will be making (includes envelopes) in my Color Your Season class. I still have a couple spots left. RSVP today: 262-334-1009

I also will have an amazing special for attendees.  Can’t make it to my class? You can purchase the completed class cards, mailed to you for $20.00 … this will also qualify your for my Class Special.  Contact me today … message me below or email me at: lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com

Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to join me today.

May your day be a good one ~

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

Autumn Card with Watercolor Pencils …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We are past the halfway point of the week and on the road to the weekend!!  Wooo Hoo! I can’t wait to share this beautiful card with you today … I created this card for my Stars Team meeting this past Saturday to highlight the beautiful Color of Seasons …

Because Stampin’ Up! is also offering a brand new set of Watercolor Pencils as a coordination product with this bundle I just had to play!! Who doesn’t love the ease of the Watercolor pencils when you want several different colors on your Autumn leaves?

Well … let me just show you, a picture is worth a thousand words (or should I say oooooh and aaaaah!!)

I stamped the images with the Momento Ink and began with the Garden Green Watercolor pencil. I used it along the vein in the center of the leaves, then I just colored in some Crushed Curry, then some Cajun Craze and finally a little Cherry Cobbler near the edges.  Each leave was a little different.

Once I was done with the Watercolor Pencils … I used my blender pen to move and blend the color.  Wow … the pencils are definitely artist quality pencils, they blend so easily and looked beautiful in spots where I hardly blended at all!

I did have to fussy cut my leaves out, but I must say that while sitting around the table with a group of friends (my Stars Team members) and just chatting & catching up, before we knew it, they were all cut out!!

After that we added just a touch of the Wink of Stella … and we did that because it really brought together the colored leaves and the die cut leaf. (The die comes with the bundle!)

Our greeting comes from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set (see below) and was punched out using the Pretty Label punch! Popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves too. The background was done with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder … the autumn leaves look so good against it!!

I can’t stop playing with this bundle … it can be used all year long and for any occasion (Even Weddings – there is a bell with a coordinating die)!! Stampin’ Up!’s® Blended Seasons Stamp Set, coordinating Framelits™ Dies, and Watercolor Pencils are perfect for every season of creating! Plus, save 10% when you buy the stamp set and Framelits in a bundle! But don’t wait—these exclusive products are only available until August 31 while supplies last.

Because the Blended Season Stamp Set and Stitched Season dies are “Limited Time Only” offer … I am hosting classes that will highlight the “Seasons”.  The first class has filled so I am adding another class on Thursday the 9th of August …

Your cards will include the envelopes … All you need to bring is your favorite adhesive.  Three spots have already been reserved so don’t wait / Contact me right away to reserve your spot.  Call 262-334-1009

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me …

Have a wonderful day ~
