This month I chose the Serene Silhouettes stamp set for my Class to Go kit. Look!
I love scenic stamps and find they help me create a wide variety of cards with them. And with these type of stamps it seems easy to make a simple yet beautiful card.
There are two more beautiful cards included in this Class to Go kit but they'll be a fun surprise for you when you get your kit!
***Here's how it works:
When you order the Serene Silhouette's stamp set for the Class to Go in clear or wood mount you'll receive all of the pre-cut supplies needed to make 5 cards shipped directly to you. You will stamp your images using your new stamp set and your supply of ink pads or markers to finish them like mine. You'll use your own greetings stamps, substituting as needed. I will texture, punch or die-cut anything needed.
The cards kit will be mailed to you with the stamp set via Priority mail in early January. Then you'll receive the photos & step by step directions sent in a pdf document via e-mail.
The best part of doing these Class to Go projects is that you'll have 5 great ideas for your new stamp set in the future! Isn't that what most of us need - creative design ideas?
*** If you are interested be sure to let me know by the date given below. The kit will be sent out the first week in January.
Local cost - $26.50

I made this 2 years ago using mostly white card stock and a bit of our silver Glimmer paper. I thought you might like to see it again.
I used an 18" styrofoam wreath, some tulle and many punches plus snowflake & flower dies. After assembling lots and lots of layered flowers and snowflakes I used long pins to adhere them into the wreath.
Many of the flowers are from this die below that's on sale this week:
Fun Flowers Bigz L Die #121812 - Price $32.95$24.71
My friend Laurel made this. Besides stamping she has a passion for making jewelry. Isn't it fabulous?!!! This picture just doesn't do it justice - in real life it's soooo sparkly.
Have you seen these gems in person? If not; you've got to get some! You can order them from the Holiday catalog on page 28 or click here. They're so gorgeous and obviously more than just card 'jewelry'.
Lots of favorites in this bunch! Mine are the Fun Flowers die, the Paper Doily Sizzlit and the Merry Minis Punch Pack. Go here to order any of your top picks or if you're local, send me your order and I'll get it for you.
Remember this? The many shapes you can get from the Doily Sizzlet? Awesome!
I love it when my customers share their talent with me. I call it 'show & tell' and it just plain makes my happy. I'm darn proud to see their creations but the best of all is seeing how much they love this craft!
Marilyn is a fairly new stamper but she's sure taken to this craft..... Look!
She heat embossed the Joyful Wishes poinsettia's with Silver EP on the Vellum card stock. Then she sponged Classic ink underneath and cut the flowers out by hand. I believe she used Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay or Pool Party ink. It's multi-layered and really shines; absolutely stunning.
The greeting is also from the Joyful Wishes stamp set - on sale right now for just $11.87, regularly $16.95. Go here to see it.
The designer paper is part of the Winterfrost Specialty paper pack.
It's Black Friday!! Did you remember that SU is having their own Black Friday sale!? It's amazing! Check it out here.
Here is another Christmas card we made at my card clubs this month:
We used the Circle Card Framelits & Christmas Collectibles set which is on sale through Dec 2nd.
Here's what it looks like open:
Did you know that with the new Card Framelits, whether it's the Label or Circle type, you can make the card larger than the 6" framelit normally does? Here's how:
My card stock measures 8 1/2" long and about 5 3/8" wide for the main card. When cutting it out, slip it under the circle or label die-cut area but make sure the extra card stock on the opposite end is above the cutting area. When you run it through it actually creates a scored area so you can fold it back in the exact spot you need it to.
I thought I'd show you what the Illuminescent ink looks like on White card stock. It's so pretty & shimmery! We inked the little snowflakes from the hostess set 'Warmth & Wonder' in this ink and stamped them above the trees in the same set. I used 2-way glue & Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the trees.
