July Classes To Go

June was dedicated to Paper and Ribbon Shares, and now I am ready to offer two new classes – one using an everyday bundle and one using a Christmas stamp set.

For the months of July-October, I will offer a holiday Class To Go in addition to a class of general greetings.  If you want to plan ahead, my August offerings will be the Coffee Cafe Bundle and the Carols of Christmas Bundle.  Carols of Christmas is an awesome set from our 2017 holiday catalog that will be released early.

My classes are a great way to get “a little extra” when you are buying a stamp set or bundle.  I don’t charge for the card materials and instructions.


The Colorful Seasons Bundle is a set with year-round appeal.  True to its name, it offers elements for each season.  I was overwhelmed with possibilities when designing this class, and I chose to make two summery cards and one fall card to get you started.  I especially love the fall card – a very eyecatching but easy (I promise!!) shaker card.

I decided to include full packs of sequins and enamel dots in this class because I know you will appreciate having the extras for future projects. I am also adding a free BONUS to this class – (12) 6″ x 6″ sheets of our Color Theory designer paper, one of each pattern.  You will love to have these papers in combination with the Glitter Enamel Dots to use with this bundle.

For the cost of the bundle, a pack of Glitter Enamel Dots, a Metallic Sequin Assortment and shipping, you will have the supplies you need to make six great cards, two each of the three designs shown.

In order to comply with Stampin’ Up! rules, I must take orders before obtaining product for the class.  I will take orders through Sunday, July 16, or until I reach capacity.  At that point, I will order product and create kits.  The kits will ship out to you no later than Tuesday, July 25.

Here’s what’s included:

Colorful Seasons Stamp Set

Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies

Glitter Enamel Dots

Metallics Sequin Assortment

**BONUS PRODUCT** (12) 6″ x 6″ sheets of Color Theory Designer Paper

*If you would like to include any ink pads, please specify which color(s) and I will add $6  each (includes shipping and tax) to your invoice.  This represents a discount from the $6.50 catalog price, which does not include shipping and tax.

The class cost is based on the retail price of the bundle and embellishments listed with tax and shipping for me to receive the materials.  I have also added a $7.20 priority mail cost for shipping to you once I have added the class materials.  There is no additional cost for the card materials and instructions.

If you are anxious to get your hands on something new for Christmas, this is it!  “Merry Mistletoe” provides bold graphic images and greetings.  The coordinating designer paper offers classic Christmas colors – Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  Two of the cards in this class are fun folds.

 

This class will include the stamp set and a full spool of 1/4″ Double-Stitched Cherry Cobbler Ribbon.  I will also include a free BONUS with this class – (6) 6″ x 6″ sheets of Be Merry Designer Paper, one of each pattern.  For the cost of the stamp set and ribbon, you will have the supplies you need to make six great cards, two each of the three designs shown.

Embossing Paste

A little embossing paste makes a big difference on a simple card like this one.  Added texture makes a great backdrop, and I like the rustic look I get when I don’t completely fill in the bricks on the mask.

The branch, flowers and greeting are from the Colorful Seasons bundle, and the designer paper is from the Whole Lot of Lovely collection.

Here’s a closer look at all of those great textures.  The stitched oval adds a nice touch, too.

Now for today’s card…

This was probably my favorite card from Card Buffet this week, in So Saffron or Powder Pink.

The card front does not cover the entire card.  The inner panel is revealed below the oval.  It follows the same dimensions as the cards I showed on Monday,  click here for those examples and dimensions – those two cards look totally different thanks to the varied themes.

Today’s version uses the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle.  If you buy only one more flower set, I highly recommend this one!

Not only does this set include beautiful flowers and coordinating thinlits, but the greetings are gorgeous!!  The font and the sentiments are absolutely lovely, and the stamps are photopolymer so they are easy to use!

Best Birds Birdhouse

This is an old favorite, updated with a new embossing folder and a bird from “Best Birds”.  The embossing folder is Pinewood Planks, and it is one of our deep embossing folders.  The card opens as shown below.

I’ve shown this fold before, and it is quite easy to make this card type.  Here is the “how-to” video from a previous post.

I colored the branch with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen, and I colored the bird with sponge daubers before cutting it out with the framelit.  It was so easy to get a couple of shades and a great result with the daubers.

 Here’s the sample I made for folks coming to Card Buffet this week.  You can eliminate heavy ink marks if you begin sponging outside the limits of the bird and then rub the color onto the bird.

I made this fun card to celebrate our Independence Day.  The solid image is from “Lovely Inside & Out”, and it works so well with the debossed greeting.  This is one of the cards we are making in this week’s Card Buffet.

Coffee Cafe Fun Fold

Just a quick look at one of my swap cards today.  I just love the coffee cups and accessories in the Coffee Break Suite!

This is a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card, with a front panel that is cut away – the Crumb Cake base measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 5 1/2″.  The Early Espresso mat on the front flap measures 4″ x 2 3/4″ and the designer paper is 3 7/8″ x 2 5/8″.

I like to stamp and layer the inside of cards when possible, and that is a must for a card like this where the inside panel shows.  The Early Espresso mat on the inside measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the Whisper White, stamped with coffee beans, measures 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.

You could modify this to showcase any object.  I CASEd a card from my upline Mindy Gray to make my card, and her theme was totally different.  She used the fabulous Birthday Memories Suite.  The sweet little girl on this card is cut right from the designer paper with a framelit!

We Love Our Hosts Blog Tour

We Love Our Hosts Blog Tour

The Host Sets are especially fabulous this year – so much so, that I had a hard time picking one to showcase!  I decided to go with the absolute best value set, and the one that may seem intimidating.  It’s the set with a whopping 60 stamps for only $16 (Stampin’ Reward Dollars), and it is called “In the City”.

My card is a gate fold of sorts.  The horizontal Emerald Envy strip is a gate fold piece, just not a full-height gate.  The opening created looks more like a saloon door than a gate.

The Emerald Envy strip measures 2 3/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.  I put it in place on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Emerald Envy first.

Then I stamped and added the other pieces.  This is where the fun begins.  First a look at the stamp set…

Oh the possibilities!

I had some fun playing with the pieces until I came up with a layout that I liked.  I simply used the stamps as placeholders, and moved them around until I had a little scene.

Then it was time to stamp, and I picked up stamps one at a time off the layout, leaving the others in place when possible.  It was helpful to have post-its available for masking.

I only trimmed the post-its where I had to, like on this roofline.  For the most part, straight edges on the mask were adequate.

I used only 21 of the stamps for this card.  I kept some acrylic blocks handy to collect the dirty stamps as I worked.  Some of them are very small and easy to lose, so watch out for that!  If you are more disciplined than me, you could clean them and put them away as you stamp.

When you are using so many stamps, I recommend stamping a few cards at a time.  I wish I had done that!

These Host Sets are only available with Stampin’ Reward Dollars earned on orders over $150, gathered through a party or placed in the online store.  Through the end of June, big orders ($350+) earn Stampin’ Rewards according to the chart in the catalog plus an additional $35.

Why not group orders with a few friends to take advantage of this?  If you need the orders to ship to separate locations, contact me at stampyourworld@gmail.com, and I will set up a Hostess Code for you.  Using a Hostess Code, orders placed by individuals in the online store can be counted toward one total for the Hostess.

I hope you enjoyed my “Saloon Doors” card.  Thank you for participating in our blog hop.  Remember that currently you are at my blog – Chris Slogar – so check the lineup below to see who is next and enjoy!
