WINTER WOODS Notecards

Merry Christmas – the day after!

Thinking about the beauty of this season and all the connections and beautiful greetings from family and friends…it still feels very festive and such a blessed time of the year.     Now for the thank you notes and more holiday cards that didn’t get sent before Christmas.  It was great playing with the Winter Woods Stamp set again today…can’t seem to get enough of this great bundle.  I am certain I will use it for many years to come.

No two cards turned out the same – I used both the very vanilla and whisper white note cards and cut pieces various sizes to layer on top .  I am so taken by that background stamp in the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set which I used under the trees.  I ran that piece through the Big Shot with the Woodland embossing folder and then lightly sponged certain areas to highlight with a little  smash of color. I used Wink of Stella to give the trees a little sparkle which doesn’t show in the photos,  A touch of linen thread, a bow and a button wrapped the trees for a more finished look.

I discovered that this winter woods set is NOT retiring after December 31st – it can be purchased as a bundle at 10% off until December 31 (see page 27 in the Holiday Catalog AND it will be carried over in the Occasions catalog but not as a bundle.  I listed all the supplies below.

REMINDER TO SIGN UP FOR THE BUFFET ON JANUARY 8TH  and make one of your own.   It is so easy to make a bunch at one time with that Stamparatus…what a tool!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful season…Let it Snow, let it Snow, Let it Snow!

THE LAST BUFFET OF 2018!

What a great buffet time…I love having the extra hour on the front end so we have room for several groups of stampers at different times.  There was lots of laughter and carryings on over snowflakes and artful snowmen on a card I cased from Amy Richel.  There were 11 kits from which to choose .  Here are Lisa, Maryann and Pam  – at the end of the buffet – making use of time in the quiet space.

 

LAST CALL FOR THE PACKER CARD!  A little creation station for stampers to make their own…here is

Jill’s Packer Card Creation

2019 CREATIONS for NEW YEAR and GRADUATION

 

A POPULAR  CARD  – I cased this card from a Demonstrator facebook page…beautifully simple with petal pink and a variety of snowflakes and glitter.

 

LEARNING NEW TECHNIQUES – always a plus.  The 2019 card started out as an eclipse but as you can see, people express their creativity in a variety of ways…it’s encouraged!  Here is Sue working with the Cuddlebug and Laurie running a Dynamic Embossing Folder through the Big Shot. New to stamping?  There is always plenty of help for the beginner.

FRIENDS BRING FRIENDS (1/2 price for 1st time guests)

CHOCOLATE KISSES – and a snowman… favors and cute decorations for the top of a  package…a little treat for someone’s desk at work or a sweet teacher gift .  A Hershey kiss is wrapped with a triangular piece of cardstock to make the stand.  The snowman is glued to the front and back so he stands alone.  Easy Peasy!!

Interested?  Sign up here for the next buffet on January 8th.  We meet at the Quality Inn in Menomonie.  Doors open at 2 and we are there until 8PM or until the last card is finished.  You can see more details here and register while you are there.

New catalogs are available.  If you are local you may pick one up

Thanks for stopping by today.  Watch for more postings and card ideas from the buffet later this month.  Be sure to leave a comment…I love hearing from you.

HOST CODE FOR DECEMBER :     GQH376R2

WHATS ON THE BUFFET? What’s on sale? New Host code

Can you believe it’s Wednesday already!!!  Just popping in to give you a little glimpse of one of the cards on the buffet for Tuesday December 11th…are you registered to attend?  Better hurry…do it here.

SOUTHERN SERENADE is one of those stamp sets I will use over and over.  It can be used for any occasion and has that old fashioned washed out look.  Here is an idea we are going to be working on.  The sentiment is up to you.  I love the font in this set.  It lends itself to many occasions and stamps well on the front of the card, eliminating the need for a separate label.  Come give it a try at the next buffet…you will be happy to go home with a card ready to send to a friend or relative.so serene

The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen  or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart.

Easy GIFT CARDS and INSERTS; NEW DECEMBER HOST CODE

Happy Monday in December!!!   What a weekend! Meera was the reason we visited the historic Downsville Museum.  We tied it in with the  Dunn County Pottery Octagonal Schoolhouse with yet another bit of history from John Thomas!    We beat it home before the snow and I settled in the craft room to make a few gift cards.   Look at  this adorable kitty that was saved in my  “wanna make” file .  I fell in love with her in glimmer paper.  Don’ t you love her rhinestone collar? (I apologize for the “pink tone” pictures ..sometimes natural lightbulbs just don’t do it with the camera!!!)

gift card kitty

I also made a few cards with the cardstock in the December  Paper Pumpkin Kit which is so versatile- note the lovely branches which are die cut in the kit.  There are also some lovely pine branches in the Night Owl Thinlits (147920) if you missed the November Christmas PP.  The berries were cut from Frosted Bouquet Framelits (147895), retired Pretty Pines Thinlits and/or the  Sprig Punch, then colored with Stampin’ Blends – Cherry Cobbler Dark and Color me Clover Dark.

slot for gift card

This set of pictures shows the inside for the slot which is created on the base layer of the card.  I use the long thin die on the retired Balloon Pop-up Thinlits – it makes a perfect slot every time.  Then I adhere a piece of cardstock on the front side to create a stop for the gift card.   Please leave a comment or question if you want to know more
