November 18 Card Buffet – 6 card designs

Hello Stamping Friends,

Saturday, November 18, is the fourth Christmas Card Buffet here at my house in Castle Rock!  We have had fun times each month and some stampers are well on their way to having a number of handmade Christmas cards for those special people in their lives.

There are two sessions:  morning 9-12 and afternoon 1:30-4:30.  Bring a sack lunch and stay for both sessions if you would like. I will have drinks, snacks and chocolate to keep up your stamping energy.  There will be a door prize and a thank you gift as always. There are six card designs to choose from and prices are $5 for one card of one design,  $8 for two cards of one design, $10 for three cards of one design.  The cards, fronts and insides, are listed here with numbers for each design.  Just RSVP by Sunday evening, November 12 with  1) the cards’ design numbers  2) How many of each design  3) Which session you will be attending.

Card #1,  Believe

Card #2, Everything Merry

Card #3, Musical Season

Note:  The black embossed words caught the flash but are true black

Card #4, Bethlehem

Card #5, Ready For Christmas

Card #6, Hearts Come Home

Space is limited so RSVP soon with the session/s you would like to attend, the cards’ numbers you would like to make and how many of each card!

I will be posting each card individually with measurements and supplies in a future post.  If you would like to know right away so you can order just leave a comment, email or text me and I will feature that card first.  The hostess code for November is ZQEYYZXM.  Use the code if your order is under $150 and receive a thank you gift from me.  Over $150 and you receive the hostess benefits yourself!

#7 of 12 Cards of Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,

It is snowing here in Castle Rock, Colorado, with several inches expected, so today’s card is just perfect!  This was one of our club cards in November.  Club will start again in January so contact me if you are interested in joining.

Card #7   Flurry of Wishes  with the technique of Watercoloring on Vellum.

I saw this technique on Stacey Lane’s blog “A Work of Carte” and then revised it to make a more mottled look.  Hmmm, I think we should call it coloring with rubbing alcohol.  My PDF sheet has step by step instructions but the basic idea is to dot your vellum with reinkers, then dribble with a cap of rubbing alcohol and use a paintbrush to swirl the ink.  Salt the inked sheet, let stand for several minutes, then spritz with alcohol to get a mottled look. Let dry and then use a paper towel to remove the salt.

The main Merry Christmas is from the Flurry of Wishes set but the others are from a random selection of stamp sets.  I wanted a collage look but after stamping the “Love, Peace, Joy” I decided less was more!  Wishing you every blessing is from Every Blessing in the big catalog, Love, Peace, Joy comes from A Little Something, Warm Wishes from Winter Wishes, Sending Every Good Wish is in the carryover White Christmas set.  When I used just part of a saying, I masked what I didn’t want with a sticky note, inked the stamp, removed the sticky note and stamped.  Except for the main Merry Christmas, the greetings are stamped off on scrap paper first and then stamped on the card.  Supplies used:

 The Precision Base Plate is on sale this week in weekly specials and a must have tool for all the thinlits we just love.  With this tool you won’t be running your thinlits back and forth through the Big Shot until they finally cut!

Be careful, though, it is not to be used with framelits – those cutting tools that are only an outside “frame” with no inside areas.  For example you would use it with the large butterfly pictured below but not the small butterfly.  Stampin’ up gives us guidance here:
