Thanksgiving Cards and More Class

Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving!



Today seems the perfect time to post the cards and projects from last month's Thanksgiving Cards and More Class.

The class consisted of two cards, a candle, a wine bottle tag, and a treat holder.

Let's start with the matching card and candle:



I love the Painted Harvest stamp set. It is amazing how the flowers 'come to life' when stamped. I am happy to report that stamping on battery candles works out beautifully!

Here is the inside and matching envelope:



The wine bottle tag (which was a big hit!) and cute treat holder (which holds quite a bit of candy!):



This is the second card:



We used the Colorful Seasons stamp set for the leaves.

A peek at the inside and matching envelope:



Lastly, here is the table gift I made for everyone:



My friend, Diana, made an acorn for me a few years ago and I have always treasured it. I thought this was a perfect table gift for the Thanksgiving-themed class. The template is from My Scrap Chick.

Happy crafting!



Supply List:  Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla CS, Painted Autumn DSP, Very Vanilla Envelopes, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Tangerine Tango Ink, Very Vanilla Banker's Twine, Linen Thread, Whisper White 1/8 Ribbon, Doily, 1/8 Circle and Leaf Punches, Leaflets and Layering Circles Framelits, Very Vanilla Envelopes, Sponge Daubers, Heat Tool, and Colorful Seasons, Painted Harvest, and Vintage Leaves Stamp Sets

Exciting New Stampin' Up! Product!

Happy Monday!

I am back from attending Stampin' Up!'s Onstage Live in Salt Lake City! What a great time being together with 2,700 Demonstrators!

We saw the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration offerings--more on those another day.

Today I want to tell you about an exciting new product that was demonstrated during OnStage. This product will be available in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Why am I telling you about it now? Because you have the opportunity to preorder this amazing product and have it before next year's Annual Catalog debuts!!!

So, what is the Stamparatus?!?!? It is an innovative stamping placement tool! 



It's big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp and, before long, you will wonder how you crafted without it!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!
  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement
Want to see it in action? Check out this video:


There will be three preorder windows:  


Please click here for customer information and here for preorder information.

I'm excited to preorder my Stamparatus on Thursday and hope you are too.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Spooks and Treats Halloween Class

Happy Sunday!

Last month I had my Spooks and Treats Halloween Class using the Spooky Night Suite from the Holiday Catalog. The Spooky Cat Stamp Set, along with the coordinating Cat Punch and Spooky Night DSP, are part of the 'spook'tacular suite! 

We made two cards and two treat holders:



It wouldn't be Halloween without making a Frankie! This year I used the Lots of Labels Framelits to create a treat holder:



Here's the back of Frankie:



This is the first card:



Waste not, want not--the flip side of the circle that was cut to make the opening was used on the inside:



The second card is a window scene:



And, the inside:



The last project is a pizza box:



Of course the inside was decorated as well:



Easy peasy--just stamp the owl and rat onto the spooky DSP scene!

Well, if you have stuck with me this far, how about a few more pictures--here is the set-up for class:



And, a close-up of the table gift I made for everyone:



Refreshments are always served after class:



Lisa C. made these beautiful and delicious sunflower cupcakes:



That's all for today. I hope you were inspired by my Spooks and Treats Halloween cards and projects. Don't forget--two more days until Halloween!
