Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on Sale

October is traditionally when Stampin' Up! has a Designer Series Paper Sale and the Snowflake Splendor DSP is part of the sale this year!  What's so lovely about this paper ~ besides the snowflakes ~ is the colors that have been used.  It is a mixture of Highland Heather, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, Pacific Point, Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy.  WOW!  What a gorgeous combination!!!  We will be using this in my Christmas Card Class ~ the Saturday class is full but I have space in my class next Tuesday ~ EMAIL ME NOW to sign up!

Stampin' Up's Snowflakes

Yesterday I posted Stampin' Up!'s video showing the products in the SNOWFLAKE SPLENDOR SUITE so today I thought I would show you some cards using the products in that suite.  The first one combines the designer series paper and the beautiful dove is from the DOVE OF HOPE BUNDLE on page 13 in the Mini Catalog.  The snowman in the second card includes the paper again and uses the SNOW WONDER BUNDLE on page 39.  The last two cards use the Winter Snow Embossing Folder from the suite.  I hope these cards will help you with ideas for your own cards because it's time, right?  If you would like to make some of your own join my class this coming Saturday ~ I would love to have you come by!

Beautiful Autumn Card Class

The lovely stampers in my Sunday afternoon class were all prepared to use the Stampin' Up! Blends on one of their cards in our class.  And, they did a good job!  I hope they enjoyed it (I know not everyone enjoys 'coloring' as much as I do ~ I just find it relaxing...)!  Here is the card that we created using the Blends ~

Blending with Stampin' Up!

Tomorrow in my BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN CARD CLASS we will be using Stampin' Up! Blends for one of the cards (I will post it for you on Sunday).  Stampin' Up! has had Blends (alcohol based markers) for several years and they are wonderful because they create a very smooth overall color on your image.  There are two in a package ~ one dark and one light ~ and each blend has a tiny line end and a brush end for application.  Always use Memento Ink when you color with Blends as this prevents bleeding.  And, keep the lid on so that the alcohol does not evaporate.  It is also wise to purchase the COLOR LIFTER with the Blends.  This tool removes color if you are outside of the lines of your image and you can use it to create highlights and shading.  The video below is an excellent one from Stampin' Up! ~ it is all about techniques of using blends ~ you'll love it! Enjoy!  Let me know if you have questions ~ just leave a comment and I will get back to you!  

                                            

 


Christmas Craft Class for you!

Oh no, it can't be!  Yes, it can.  My first (in a series) of Christmas Card Classes was yesterday afternoon and Danielle, Cyndi, Cynise, Julie and Dixie joined me to make the cards pictured below.  We used three different BUNDLES from the Mini catalog ~ HAVE A HOOT (on page 62), SNOWFLAKE WISHES (on page 38) and COMING HOME (on page 26).

Online Class for September

Class Cards

I have decided that I would like to do a monthly online class.  I hope it will be something you will enjoy! I will be starting tomorrow with the Have a Hoot Bundle on page 62 in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog.  I will have a Project Sheet for each of the cards in the online class and it will be available to download when you sign up for the class.  You can also order product for the class and I will have it sent directly to you.  If you want to add precut cardstock to your order I will mail it directly to you or you can pick it up in the Studio.

I am not sure exactly how this will work out but I really want to try it.  Actually, it is something that I have been wanting to try for awhile.  I will have a PDF for anyone who is interested explaining the details and answering questions.
