Let It Snow Online Christmas Card Class:

I am super excited to bring to you my NEW Online Class featuring the Snowman Season Bundle from the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  This class is part of my Christmas Card Series that I do each year.  But this is not only a new class; I am also excited to be able to offer you a new way to order my class!  If you notice below there are links in the post, that’s because we have a new system in place that allows me to add a shopping cart for everything in the class.  Yes, you read that correct.  Instead of me ordering everything for you in the class, having it shipped to me, then having to repack everything along with your class kits.  You can know click on the option you want and click add to cart and put in your information, and have it shipped directly to your home.  What does this also allow I can add 12 x 12 paper to my classes, and you don’t have to pay the huge amount for extra shipping.  So, this new feature opens a whole new world for my Online Classes and new experiences for you my wonderful customers! 

I still have the different options available to you.  In this class you have three options to chose from! 

  Here’s how it works:

You click on the link below on which ever option you want to purchase the medium or large option.  And the link will take you to the shopping cart.  Once there you can click ADD ALL TO CART and that will put everything that I have preselected for the class in your order.  Say you want to substitute the stamp set or bundle.  You can do so by unchecking it and then hit ADD ALL TO CART then once in the shopping cart hit continue shopping, add the bundle or equal or greater value to the cart and then hit check out.  Before paying you will add the host code listed on the order where it says. And then hit submit and pay.  All the products will be shipped to you and once I get your confirmation email with your address, I will mail out the class kits to you within 48 hours.  I will then send you an email with the PDF Instructions and link to the video tutorials by the date of the class.  Super easy right!

Let's Deck the Halls with Merry Mice from Stampin' Up!

It is no secret that I love the Merry Mice Stamp set.   I have, since I first saw it when I got the Holiday Catalog.   And, I will admit that I am a little sad that it is on the retirement list.   I just keep telling myself that when something ends, something better comes along.  This is one of those stamp sets that I will keep and not get raid of.  I love it that much.  If you would like to own this stamp set you can pick it up now in my online store and the clear mount stamp set is on sale as part of the Year End Close Out Sale!  Here's a look at the stamp set.

This is one of those stamp sets that is perfect for different coloring techniques.   You can use it for so many different techniques, from watercoloring to markers to colored pencils, the possibilities are endless.   Here's a look at today's card.
This is another one of those cards that can be reproduced rather quickly and easily with just a few supplies still in time for Christmas.   The last day to order and get it before Christmas is Thursday, December 15th.

Tips & Tricks to create Multiplies:

This card was created using Garden Green Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 to make a top folding A2 size card.  After cutting and scoring your card bases you need to go ahead and stamp all your mice in Archival Basic Black ink on Whisper White Cardstock(5 1/4 x 1 3/4) and let them dry.  Once they are all dry you can begin the coloring process.  The outfits are all colored using Stampin' Write Markers in Garden Green, Real Red, Dapper Denim, Delightful Dijon, Crumb Cake, and Blushing Bride.
To create the shadowed effects on the mice, I used a blender pen.  I started out coloring the mice with Crumb Cake ink that was squeezed in the top of the ink pad to create a pallet.   Next I took the blender pen and pulled out ink using the blender pen to create a lighter shade.  (The liquid in the Blender pen when added to ink can create a lighter shade depending on where you place it.  If you add a little ink to the end and pull that into a different area of the pallet adding more liquid creates a litter shade of ink.)  Start coloring with this shade and only do one mice at at time once you do an area don't go back over it until it is dry.   Once they are dry you can go back and add a little more color to each mouse so that you create a shadow/Shade effect.   Once you get your desired effect you can go back once it's dry and  color in the ears and the little cheeks using blushing bride.   The shadows underneath each mouse was created the same way with the Blender Pen.
Once all the coloring is done you will add this to a piece of Warmth and Cheer DSP Stack cut at 5 1/2 x 2.  Attach this layer to the card base about 1/4" from the bottom of the card base.  Once this is attached I stamped the sentiment just above the stamped layer.  I added the three small dot from the Regal Enamel shapes.   This finished off the card, here's another look at the final card.


Thanks for dropping by today and I hope that you enjoyed this card.   If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the link above and in the product list below.   Come the first of January I am planning on making a change on my blog, so stay tune for updates.

Quick & Easy Halloween Treats Card Video Tutorial

Hello Stampers and crafters thanks for joining me for today's blog/vlog post.  Today I am going to show you a quick and easy Halloween Card using the Halloween Treats stamp set from Stampin' Up! in the brand new 2016 Holiday Catalog.  If you have your catalog the stamp set is on page 58.   This stamp can be used for so many different things, from treat tags, to cards to scrapbook embellishments.   It's only as limited as your imagination.  Here's a look at my card for today.

This is such a quick card that you can make a ton with just a few supplies and a couple Stampin' Write markers.  What no ink pads?  Nope, just three markers, wow how easy and fun it that.  I actually show you in the video that I stamped it wrong the first time and still had time to redo it, and the video is still under 15 minutes long.
Here are a close up of both cards that I created.  I used Basic Gray as one card base and Pumpkin Pie as the other.   Just that simple change will change how the card looks.   But I wanted to show you that you can change things up and still have a great card.

Supplies needed:

  • Pumpkin Pie or Basic Gray 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Pumpkin Pie or Basic Black  4 x 5 1/4
  • Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper 3 3/4 x 5
  • Basic Black 4 x 2 1/2
  • Whisper white 3 3/4 x 2
  • Stampin' Write Markers in Old Olive, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie
