Class Schedule Updates!

Just wanted to share with you that I've just added a Christmas Card Buffet to my class schedule!

This event is scheduled for Thursday, November 6 as well as Saturday, November 8.  Both dates include the same Christmas stamping 'menu' choices.

Here's a copy of the latest posting as it appears on my Stampin' Up calendar:

Christmas Card Buffet!  

This is a special Christmas card-making event, customized for you, by you!   
  • I'll design & email-share 3 new Christmas cards.  (Not ready just yet!)
  • You will RSVP via email to me ... and
  • You will choose how many of each card design you want to make.
  • Class fee for 3 cards (1 of each) is $10, as usual. 
  • Each additional card that you pre-select to make will be an additional $2.00
  • Alas, standard class waiver cannot apply today.
For example
  • Making a total of 6 cards . . any designs (your choice) ... Class fee = $10 + $6 (for 3 added cards) = $16 class
  • Or, a different example:  Make a total of any 10 cards?  Class = $10 + $14 (for 7 added cards) = $24.
  • You just need to decide & select & notify me by Saturday, November 1.  Payments will be due upon your RSVP.
  • I'll use those RSVP's to prepare the correct number of custom-selected card kits for each stamper.
Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card via invoice once your choices have been made.
Tell your friends!  Bring a Christmas CD if you wish!

enlightened  {Pssssssssssst!  This class will be repeated on Saturday, Nov. 8 for those who need a weekend class.} 

Looking forward to stamping with you!

Lovely in the Fall!

Last week's Ways to Use It challenge called for using a tree or trees on a creation.

What a perfect time to bring out my long-adored Lovely as a Tree stamp set to play!  Not only is Lovely as a Tree the longest-running current stamp set by Stampin' Up!, but my set is one of those original wood-mount sets purchased "back in the day" when it was pretty much brand new in our catalog ... or Idea Book + Catalog, a.k.a IDB+C back then.  Some things should be kept ... just sayin'!

It's been a while since I've heat embossed, but it seems that I always come back to that technique in the latter part of the year.  

After white embossing the image, I colored the image with Blendabilities.  I really do like the way this looks IRL (in real life), as the colors are stunning to the eye.  After all coloring was dried, I toyed with the design itself.  My stampin' table has been constantly filled with holiday prep & planning recently ... and amongst the many items at hand was the new set of Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  That's how the "leafy" edge came to be for the tree image layer. 

Texture was added with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions folder and very subtle tone-on-tone stamping of the large oak leaf from the new For All Things set ... an absolutely beautiful seasonal stamp set for Fall, found in the Holiday Catalog.
Thanks a bunch for having stopped by today!  And to my local friends & customers, I'm really looking forward to our Christmas Stampin' Stack coming up next weekend!  See you soon!
