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…

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.

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??

SEPTEMBER FUN in the NEW SPACE!

Good morning Stampers!

We are so blessed with a new room that has lots of space for everyone and more room for friends to work together.  So grateful to all who came to the last buffet and brought their friends.

BORGIE! The guy behind the scenes who carries it all and makes it happen…We are grateful!

Let’s stamp!  FRIENDS who BRING FRIENDS have more fun!

Last call for VARIED VASES IN GORGEOUS GRAPE…A favorite…don’t you just love that little punch?  Oh so many possibilities!!!

SHARING WHAT YOU LOVE!  Diane shared her latest creations.  Be sure to bring yours next time so we can see what you are working on.

 

I so look forward to seeing all of you at the monthly buffet.  Always held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.  Register NOW so we will be sure to have enough paper cut just for you to design your own cards!  No prior experience necessary.  Of course, everyone wants to know the cost and what to bring so here are the details:

  • Bring your own adhesive…more than one kind if you have it…safe to bring a snail and/or liquid glue(I prefer Tombow) an/or double faced tape (good for adhering embossed papers)

  • -Cost – make 5 cards for $10 – minimum.  Extra kits are available to take home and assemble @$2.50.

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.

REMEMBER THIS GUY?

The goose in Bowman Hall…he’s already dressed for the occasion.  Gary enjoys the humor in his costumes….quite clever, don’t you think?

ALLIGATORS, RHINOS AND ROOS – Oh My!

Hello Stampers!

I love this Animal Outing Suite!  Lots of ideas out there have stimulated my curiosity and creativity.  The DSP alone is just so cute and makes for an easy-peasy card.  The mighty alligator stands alone with a little label, some linen thread and a fussy-cut branch with a frog.

Wild aboutyou DSP alligator

And then there is Roo with a Koala baby in tow!!!  So many possibilities for a great WELCOME NEW BABY Card.  A touch of Burlap ribbon, and a bit of Leaf Ribbon to dress it up – oh so simple to do.

LOTS OF NEW!! Holiday Catalog, Redeem your Bonus Coupons, New Babies, New HOST CODE, New FREE GIFT, and more…

Hi Stampers,

Excitement continues as we approach September 5th when the Holiday catalog goes LIVE!  So many new and fun ideas.  I especially love the old fashioned Country Living ideas and new embossing folders.

NEW BABIES ARE COMIN’ TO TOWN!

I try to keep the card rack full at Prince and Princesses ...sometimes it’s a challenge with ALL the new babies in town.  Here are some cards I designed for baby showers and pregnancy:

BABY SHOWER CARDS
Wonderful Moment and Precious Delivery Stamp sets are a perfect pair for the exciting news and precious delivery about to come.

The tufted embossing folder is perfect for that quilt look.  I sponged the doilies to match the cardstock.  A touch of ribbon or linen thread accompanied by some punched flower petals change the face of the card to provide choices.  I used Twinkle Twinkle DSP to fussy cut the dress.   The old faithful Petite Petal punch does the job for tiny flowers with a single pearl center.  Please comment – would love the feedback.  I would also love to see what you have created with these stamp sets.
