BUFFET PREVEW~Purple Posy~World Card Making Day ~Cow Tails~Harvest Special

GATHERED TOGETHER – A pre-view of what’s on the buffet.   (Doors open 1:15- 8:30)

gathered together

This card uses so many of my favorite supplies that are now retired.  The petal pink on Rich Razzleberry look great together and  much better than this photo shows.  The dark rich razzleberry matches the Nature’s Poem DSP strip perfectly~always a plus when you use Stampin’Up products.   Although it’s hard to see, there is a copper foil leaf tucked behind the top leaf.  I am loving the leaf dies as they make sharp cuts and emboss the veins on the leaves at the same time.  I spritzed the cardstock just a bit before cutting which gave the leaves a deeper texture and a little curl as they dried.  You will need to bring your glue dots for this one.  Here are the supplies I used:

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.

Product List

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.

 

THANX for stopping by today !

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!!!

SEPTEMBER FUN in the NEW SPACE!

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:

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.
