Christmas Card Club: Timeless Tidings

It's time for the last month of my Christmas Card Club already! Don't worry though - I've got a few more Christmas-themed classes to go planned between now and Christmas.


This month's class features the Timeless Tidings stamp set. With your class kit, you'll receive the stamp set in your choice of wood or clear mount, a roll of Braided Linen Trim, and the supplies and instructions to make 15 cards (5 each of those pictured below), plus envelopes. You supply your own ink and adhesive. I used Mossy Meadow ink to complete these cards.




But wait, there's more! This stamp set goes with the Timeless Tidings Project Kit, and if you'd like to add it onto your class, I will throw in 5 bonus cards (the one pictured below)!


The cost is $61 plus $7 shipping for wood mount, and $52 plus $7 shipping for clear mount. If you'd like to add on the project kit, ink, or adhesives, just let me know and I will adjust the cost for you. Per Stampin' Up! policy, you must email me for a link to purchase this kit. The deadline to purchase is November 23, and I will mail the kits out by November 30. However, if you purchase early, I will do my best to get it out sooner to you!


Happy Stamping!

Facebook Live: Snow is Glistening

Are you ready for some Christmas crafting? No, not yet? Let me tell you a little secret. I craft for Christmas all year! I love to make my own Christmas cards, and we have close to 150 people on our list, so.... I need to start early! On my recent Facebook Live, I shared a card using one of the cute little Galvanized Buttons as a Christmas tree topper.




Curious about the stamps used on this card? They come from the set Snow is Glistening, which is a limited time product available to customers in November. That snowflake Christmas tree is so pretty!


You can see how I put this card together here. Thanks for watching!

Thinking of You with a Grateful Heart

The Falling for Leaves Bundle is so beautiful, with the intricate leaf dies and the heartfelt sentiments in the stamp set. I definitely need to do more creating with this stamp set before fall is done! Today's card is CASEd from Erica Cerwin. (Now that I'm searching for it, I can't find her post, but I know this card came from her!) I changed just a few small things. The full supply list is below.





Turn your Buffalo Check into plaid by using a ruler and Stampin' Write Markers. I sure hope this background stamp sticks around!

No Line Watercoloring with Country Home

Have you seen this technique yet? No line watercoloring is a new technique to me, but I had to try it after seeing some beautiful projects that were made using it. If you're curious about how it works, you can watch my Facebook Live from today. Basically, you stamp an image in a very light color - I used Sahara Sand stamped off once. Then you watercolor using an Aqua Painter and your ink pads. Here's the result:





It's a different look, but very artistic, I think. I'll be sharing a card later this week that I used Stampin' Blends to color, and the two looks are completely different! Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Stamps: Country Home
Ink: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Shimmery White, Wood Textures DSP
Accessories & Tools: Aqua Painter, Galvanized Buttons, Braided Linen Trim, Versamark, White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Happy Stamping!

#TGIFC180: Snowflake Showcase Sneak Peek

Oh my, do I have a treat for you today! I literally got these products on my doorstep this afternoon, and I couldn't wait to use them! TGIF Challenges Color Challenge this week was the perfect inspiration, along with a sample from Stampin' Up! that I CASE'd. Here is the fun color combo:






And here is my card. I copied it from a sample that Stampin' Up! posted, just changing the colors, switching out sequins for rhinestones, and using my thinlits instead of a sewing machine for the stitched line on the bottom.





The stamped images come from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set, and the die-cuts are from the Snowfall Thinlits Dies. These products, along with the Snow is Glistening stamp set, Snowflake Trinkets, and White Velvet Paper, will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST in November.



If you want to make sure you get them, you can purchase them as part of your starter kit this month. They are all truly beautiful!


Stamps: Happiness Surrounds
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Whisper White
Accessories & Tools: Snowfall Thinlits, Stitched Labels Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot, Basic Black Baker's Twine, Rhinestones


Happy Stamping!
