Christmas Card Stamp a Stack

I will be holding my annual Christmas Card Stamp - a - Stack on Dec. 2 this year from 10 - 1:00.  This is always a lot of fun.  Once you pick the cards you want to make, I will cut all the card stock and do a lot of the die cutting in advance.  When you arrive, you will have a packet and complete your card.

I would love to have you join us if you live in the Mooresville, Newton, Sherrills Ford area of North Carolina!

I have kept the price the same for several years.  The price includes envelopes.

$35 for 20 cards   /   $65 for 40 cards   /   $95 for 60 cards
(amounts will be pro-rated for other quantities)

You can pick your cards from the ones below.  Please, when picking, make sets of 5.  Keep in mind that you can switch up the sentiments on most of the cards.  I will also have a lot of sentiments for the inside for you to choose from.

If you can not attend but would like a packet to do at home, contact me and we will work out the details.

Stamp Club

Today is my birthday!!  Maybe I should be sharing birthday cards but I will do that one day next week.  So far, I have had a nice day.  I just talked to my daughter and missed calls earlier from mom and Marianne while I was at church.  I've decided to join the church I have been visiting for the past several months so ended up staying late today for "Pizza with the Pastor" for people wishing to join.  I'm hoping to join in November when Ashley will be here.

I had Stamp Club last week.  After designing a few more difficult cards in the past couple of months, I tried to make the cards simpler this month plus I die cut a lot of the elements to avoid waiting in line for the Big Shot.  It paid off and the gals noticed!!  I also concentrated on fall cards with one special card in honor of October Breast Cancer awareness.

This card uses some non-Stampin' Up DSP.  The local stamp store in Mooresville closed recently and I got a lot of their Bo Bunny DSP at a great price.  Vintage Leaves stamp set was used for the background on this card.  The die cut leaf is from Seasonal Layers Thinlits in Copper.  (It makes it easy to adhere if you use the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Copper.)  The cup and sentiment is from Merry Cafe stamp set which is in the Holiday Catalog.  I love this set because it is very versatile.  I am not a coffee drinker but this set has sayings about tea and apple cider plus sentiments for fall, Halloween, Christmas and New Year.

I love the layout of this card.  The Rich Razzleberry (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") and Night of Navy (4" x 5 1/2") cardstock are layered with a piece of white cardstock as the top layer (3 1/4" x 5 1/2")  The only part that opens is the DSP (3 1/2" x 6").  The DSP is scored at the top and sandwiched between the Night of Navy and Razzleberry pieces.

This is our November calendar.  I used the Paisleys and Petals stamp set and thinlits.  The colors I used are Tranquil Tide, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, and Night of Navy - so fallish!

My favorite Painted Harvest stamp set!!!  No matter what color you use, the cards all looked wonderful.  The gals picked their colors and stamped away!

I had to use Ribbon of Courage for breast awareness month.  The DSP is some retired I found in my stash (love using up the old stuff to make room for new!)  I stamped the ribbon on scrap paper but the gals opted to stamp directly on the white.  The detailed stamp is stamped in Blushing Bride full strength.  The plain ribbon is stamped on top of the detailed stamp with Blushing Bride but stamp off first.

Painted Harvest - love it!

I don't know why it took me so long to jump on the band wagon and order Painted Harvest stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.  But I'm so glad I finally did!  I played around with the stamp set yesterday and came up with several cards using this stamp set - even a Christmas card!

For this card, I made the plaid background using the Brushstrokes background stamp.  I inked it in Real Red and stamped it; next I inked in Garden Green and turned the stamp 90 degrees and stamped again.  I stamped the smaller flower (this is a two step stamp set) with Garden Green and used the little dots in the set to stamp Red berries.  The "J" and "Y" are from a really old alphabet stamp set that I have but it would also look great using the Large Letters Framelits.

The color combo for this card is Marina Mist (for the large flower stamp) and Night of Navy for the smaller flower.  It is super easy to use this two step stamp - no worries on lining it up.  The middle of the flower is Soft Suede with Espresso dots.  The leaves are stamped in Wild Wasabi.  I stamped off (2nd generation stamping) on everything except the Espresso dots.  I just love the gingham ribbon!!

This color combo is Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze.  Cajun Craze is not a color I use often, but when fall comes, it is my "go to" color!  I staped the leaves in Old Olive (stamping off).

My final color combo is Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant with Pear Pizzaz leaves and Daffodil center.

So what do you think????  So many ways to use this stamp set.
