Stampin' Up! & Stamp Clubs ~ a Beautiful Friendship

Split Front Card (3)
Beautiful Friendship stamp set, p. 115 AC

AUGUST STAMP CLUBS start this week and I can't wait to teach everyone how to make this card ~ it is the split front technique.  It is a technique that I have been wondering about and finally found a diagram that made it obvious and easy to do!  My stamp clubs are approximately two hours long once a month and include two projects that will guarantee your continued interest in this wonderful craft (and the results will thrill your friends!).  Call or email me if you are interested!

And, if you earned Bonus Points in July now is the time to redeem them ~ you will need the code that Stampin' Up! emailed you so please bring it to class or use it on your online order (August Hostess Code:  UWRBACJF) to save yourself some money!  I have EXTRA Bonus Points and will be giving them away!  All you have to do is comment on this post and you will be entered into a drawing to receive two of my Bonus Points ($10) ~ and, I may be able to have more than one winner!!!!

SATURDAY, JULY 25, 2 PM

CAT/ART CRAFT STUDIO

We will use the Blossoms and Bloom Bundle to create three cards and one pretty little gift box.  Enjoy an afternoon of stamping and relaxing with friends.  The studio is large enough to social distance and you can certainly wear your mask.  Let me know if you are interested in attending on Saturday or if you would prefer a virtual event ~ we can do that if you have the bundle!

Stampin' Up!'s Playful Pets

The Designer Series Paper, PLAYFUL PETS (#152489 on page 41 in the new catalog), is so cute ~ I wish I could show you the designs on each of the six 12" x 12" pieces (2 of each in the package).  The background on my cards, below, uses the Designer Series Paper BUT so are the cute cats and dogs.  That's right no stamping except the saying.  I used the BAND TOGETHER stamp set (one we used last month in stamp club) for the label pieces.  I also used lots of Dimensionals to pop all the pets up!   If you have a pet you will want to put this set on your WISH LIST.  And, it will be great to share with your friends and their pets!

Stampin' Up! Easter Card Class

I know it feels way too early to be talking about Easter but I wanted to introduce you to my little friends from the stamp set WELCOME EASTER on page 45 in the Spring Mini Catalog.  I am sure that the date of April 12 will be here before we know it and the fact that these friends can be used for other occasions  made me want to show them to you.  I stamped and fussy cut (I know, I know ~ where are the dies?) the chick, bunny and lamb (in front of the TV late in the evening) and then mounted them on these cute 3" x 3" cards that are in the catalog.  Where the heck did I find the cards?  In a completely unexpected location ~ look on page 55 ~ the cards and cute decorated envelopes are part of the BEST DRESSED SUITE!  Who knew, right?  And, what other occasion could we use this stamp set for?  One of the sayings in the set is "welcome to the world, little one" so a baby card or baby shower decorations/invitations would certainly work.  Any other ideas out there, you creative ladies?
