CARD SHOWER and WATCH OUT for October 23rd!!!

A SHOWER OF CARDS

Thanks to all who made a card for Meera’S 9TH Birthday!  Meera is a budding SU demonstrator and stamper.   Look at these beautiful creations….you can tell by the look on her face that she was surprised and excited.

 

Nita shared her special Indian Mamre snack with turmeric followed with delicious carrot cake from Marion’s Legacy and Maple Leaf’s  fresh apple cider to make the time special.  A  time for thank you cards gave us another play date.  Many Blessings is such a delightful stamp set for little 3×3 cards.

RECIPE and PRODUCT LIST:

  1. Cut a piece of cardstock – color of choice – 3 x 6 and score at 3″
  2. Cut 2 pieces of vanilla card stock 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 for  front image and inside message
  3. Stamp image on vanilla card stock and color with watercolor pencils, Stamp and Blends or your choice of coloring tools.  We used the stamparatus tool and were able to stamp 10 cards perfectly in a very short time – no guessing no mistakes and perfect stamping every time.
  4. Stamp sentiment on vanilla cardstock. Use classic punch for sentiment and also cut one out of the same color as the base cardstock for shadowing.  We gave the label a bit of dimension with mini dimensionals.

Meet the STAMPERS – sharing their CREATIVITY for WCMD

WCMD – WORLD CARD MAKING DAY – brought out the best in everyone!!        These stampers were prompted to make creative works of art.  Look at what was  shared at the October Buffet.  Be sure to comment and let us know what you think.

Meet KAREN FORD who shared her incredible talent not only for cards but for paper crafting projects as well.  (More to come on the next blog)  Here are her creations for WCMD.  The mini card at the end was tucked inside that OUTSTANDING paper crafted purse.  I was so excited to see what she produces  in her craft room!

Meet DIANE BAUER a frequent contributor to this blog with her unique cards.  Each one a bit different but with her own creative flair.  She did a series of these halloween cards with fussy cut hats from DSP sold on the clearance rack.  She said that once she started she couldn’t stop cutting those cute hats which were different for every card!

These retiform technique cards were also designed by DIANE BAUER  – so good at using an idea and creating her own design!  Take a look at these creations from just a couple of samples of the easy retiform technique!

Meet ELAINE WERNER  whose detailed card impressed us all.  The photograph barely shows the intricate detail in this multi-fold card – a scrapbook piece in a card!  Take a close look at that Menomonie paper!!! Watch the next blog for her cute paper craft project.

Meet DIANE EDWARDS  a long time stamper who does unique work in her craft room.  She loves to watercolor and adding unusual touches to her cards…notice the guinea hen feather on this wonderful card.

A BIG THANK YOU  to all for sharing your talent for making cards.  I hope this inspires you – the readers of this blog – to contribute your cards even if you don’t come to the buffet.  I would love to post them.  Just send them to me with any details you care to share and I will be happy to include you in the next blog posts.  Sharing is a big part of the Stampin’Up Community – it sparks the creativity in all of us.  Creativity is a natural gift and we all have it – all we need is an outlet to express it.

Come to the next buffet  NOVEMBER 13th at the Quality Inn and Suites in Menomonie WI.  If you can’t join us be sure to order the kits for the cards (which includes everything but the adhesive) to make them at home.  Kits are $2.50 each – minimum of 5 kits for mailing plus shipping.

TAGS AND TIDINGS

TAGS TLC JOES

Did you get a chance to watch the video on Heartfelt Designs facebook page about the Tags and Tidings bundle.  I have had a chance to play with it this week and thought it might be fun to add this set to the buffet to accompany the Mistletoe Tag Kit we have been using.  Copper embossing powder certainly has my vote to make these cute tags that punch the holes needed to attach to gifts, cards, additional tags and more.  It makes 16 tags in one turn of the Big Shot!!!  Aren’t these tag designs just the cutest?  There are many of these ideas on line.  Come play and create your own unique design with paper, punches, ribbon and this bundle.

I have added the new 2018 In Color Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the tags  are just as cute in every color.  You can also stamp them in black ink so they may be colored with Stampin’ Blends for Stampin’ Write markers.  I am excited to share these with you at the buffet on Tuesday, October 9th.  Be sure to watch the video to learn how.

HAPPY OCTOBER

 It’s a dreary Wisconsin October day so I’m crafting cards – from sympathy, to birthday, to wedding, to gift cards – knowing that their destination will bring some sunshine into the lives of others.   Here is an easy-peasy sympathy card that might hit the buffet next week.  Sorry about the photo..it doesn’t show the embossing very well…in too much of a hurry!

sympathy - winter woods

Supplies:  I used Soft Suede cardstock for the base  Then I stamped the trees from Winter Woods Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on very vanilla cardstock.   Seems like the time of year to switch from that summer crisp white to the ivory look for fall.   I stamped the trees first and then ran it through the Big Shot with the elegant Darice Sympathy embossing folder.  Wrapped a piece of that new braided linen trim(147808} around the top panel and adhered it to the base with dimensionals to pop it up a bit.  Stamped a little sentiment inside on a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of vanilla cardstock and DONE!  EASY PEASY!

Update on WCMD :Today is DAY ONE of World Card Making Week and Stampin’ Up is celebrating by offering 10% off on certain products!!!

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY October 6th

38767200_1906718099420738_8414461787566505984_nWORLD CARD MAKING DAY! Celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October, the day first began in 2006 and was created by Paper Craft magazine as a way to encourage crafters to get a head start on the holiday card-making season. Since then, the day has gained traction as an International celebration; it’s a day for the card making community to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is at the heart of card making.

So let’s join the fun and make a special card for this day….you can send it to me by e-mail or post it on my Facebook page with a few details.  It’s ok to CASE a card but you have to make it your own by changing something…color, adding an embellishment, changing the sentiment, etc.   Coming to the buffet on the 9th?   Bring your card with you and we will share each others cards…maybe they’ll be a prize or two – one never knows! It would be fun to have a blog sharing everyone’s card…

old_bottles__merlot

Take a close look at this vintage card I’ve been working on for World Card Making Day.   I like the old bottles in this photo which I found in my files…they lend themselves to the “international” flavor of the day!  Don’t you just love that Merry Merlot paper and gorgeous Merlot/Copper double -sided ribbon?  The picture doesn’t do anything for it!  The swirls and curls embossing folder is fun to work with even on envelope flaps…you will love it especially when you get it free for a $50 order.

BYE BYE SEPTEMBER AND REMEMBER:   There’s only 4 days left in September, can you believe it? Don’t forget to use your Bonus Days Coupons that you earned last month, they expire the end of the month. As does my free swirls and curls embossing folder promotion.

CASEing a CARD

Hi Stampers!

There are so many ideas out there that I love.  isn’t it great that in Stampin’up we can take someone else’s idea and embellish it, change the colors, the sentiment, … to make it your own = CASE = Copy and Share with Everyone.

Remember that EASY PEASY card from the September buffet?  I love the DSP and all the colors but it was a bit bland for me so I played with it and embellished it with some scraps, metallic thread, heat embossing, a button and it’s a whole new card.  You can do it too!  Just play with textures, colors, scraps, ribbon, some bling, etc. until it makes your heart sing.   It’s Fun!!!  Here are a few examples – can you find the original??

 

LIKE and LEAVE A COMMENT:   If you’ve been reading my Facebook posts, you’ve noticed my request for you to like the post and leave a comment.   If you haven’t done so already you may want to do it because I will enter the names in a drawing for a prize…watch for details but GET IN THE HABIT NOW -you never know when there will be a surprise drawing!!!  The more Likes with comments on Facebook and my Blog, the more chances to win!!!

Heading into WINTER WOODS!

HI STAMPERS!

Just a quick post on the card that we made at the September buffet with the Winter Woods Bundle.  There are so many possibilities with this set….it reminds me of Lovely as a Tree.   The last picture I posted was poor at best…this is a better one.  I’m not sure about the “twig tree”.   it actually looks better in real life than in the photograph.  I’m working on one with a snowy pine and maybe some of that new shimmer paint.  Please leave a note in the comment section if you are interested.
