WHAT’S ON THE NOVEMBER BUFFET?

Hi Stampers!

Hope everyone had a great weekend with  more than enough powdery white stuff already!!!  Just thought I’d share a little of what’s on TUESDAY’S buffet.

THE MINI CURVY BOXES ARE BACK: 

There will be paper and supplies for you to create your own either fall or Christmas MINI BOX designs AND a chocolate treat that you may use inside if you desire.  I could not resist sharing these from Stampin’ Up Demonstrator Kris Boll.  There are many mini curvy ideas out there but this was one of the best I’ve seen.   IMPORTANT:  We will NOT be doing these at THIS class but you may want to sign up to make one with the mercury glass DSP next time . Please leave a comment and let me know if you like them as much as I do AND if I should put you on the list to make one in December.tea lights mini - Kris Bollmini curvey boxes

Here is Kris’ tip:  I’ve added battery operated tea lights to each of the Perennial Essence vellum colors stamped with one of the Delicata inks. I also used the Mercury Glass Designer acetate and just added the tea light. I love how they turned out! I die cut a hole on the bottom of the box with a snowflake for the flame to stick through. Then adhere the curvy box to the tea light with glue dots.

GOIN’ TO A WEDDING?

If you are going to a wedding this year, here are some new designs using that elegant Wonderful Romance leaf die (from the last buffet kit) and the LACE 3D embossing folder. These also make good “Congratulations “cards for anniversaries or special birthday celebrations.   Fussy cut magnolias or not? Verticle or horizontal?  Which do you like? Be sure you are registered for the buffet on Tuesday, November 12th so you can make yours.

 

THIS WEEK’S SPECIAL

Sorry Wonderful Romance bundle is retired.  But there are many others from which to choose including the The Tiny Keepsake Bundle.

.         TINY KEEPSAKES BUNDLE (EN) Tiny Keepsake Bundle 152390   $48.50

HAPPY SUNDAY Stampers!

With the color leaving us oh so quickly here in Wisconsin,  the shorter days and longer nights are settling it.   My attention is drawn to splashes of color in the beautiful “See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper”.  And, yes, it’s time to make a few calendars.  I love sending them for the new year to friends and family who appreciate the year long sentiment.  The paper is so beautiful I didn’t want to cover it with a sentiment so maybe I’ll use the back to express my thoughts.

HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!

Hello Stampers!   IT’S Raining outside…are you in your craft room???

So Stampin’ Up is celebrating International World Card Making week and we are getting on the bandwagon….they want us to collectively send 50,000 cards this week. We already have a head start as I know many of you are bringing your cards to class on Tuesday for a little show and tell and then you’ll pop them in the mail RIGHT?Here is an  old favorite I enjoy from Painted Harvest…so many ideas for this stamp set and Tin Tile Dynamic embossing folder:

painted harvest

10-1-2019 WCMD - Email 1 - HEADER NEW - TOP 2

And then i got distracted by this easy peasy Mini Curvy Keepsakes box YOU will be able to make at the Buffet on October 8th!!!  No more than 4 of the same DSP and I assure you they are easy to cut and assemble.  You get to make 2 and can fill and assemble at home.

Happy World Card Making Day – remember to bring your card(s) to the buffet for a little SHOW AND TELL!

HaPpY StAmPin’

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:
