Hello Stamping Friends,
August hostess code if your order is under $150: HKVNWPPX
Today is the last day to order and get a $5 coupon for each $50 you spend and then tomorrow is the big day when the new mini catalog goes live, you can spend your coupons and the new online store goes live!!
Demonstrators earn the same $5 for each $50 and can order right now from the new mini catalog so call quick and we can make that happen (or click the join button in the tabs above and just follow the instructions.)
Our club met by Zoom last Tuesday and we shared our swap cards and made a “Mystery Card” using the list of supplies I had sent them all earlier.
Hmmm….. I guess I was too excited to travel to Mount Rushmore and didn’t post. I will have to backtrack with a different post.
The cool 1″ fold of the base on the Mystery Card #3 lets you see and use both sides of a Designer Series Paper (DSP). So often we let our DSP sit on a shelf because we love both sides and don’t want to use one side and lose the other. Here is our answer to using both sides! I am using the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP on a Terracotta Tile Base.
I glued the DSP to the back of the 1″ flap and used the reverse side of one of the 3/4″ DSP strips. On the inside you have the full DSP showing on the left and a 3/4″ strip of the DSP with the front side showing on the right.
For the greeting I used the Stitched Nested Labels and the Ornate Thanks stamp set with Old Olive ink and Soft Suede ink. The ribbon is the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and Terra Cotta Tile gems (retired). I wish I would have had the new In Color Butterfly Gems in the Terra Cotta Tile.
I received pictures from some of the club members who completed the card:
Sharon made three cards while we chit chatted and made one! She is preparing for Christmas and sends out 200+ cards so definitely time to get started!
I will be starting Christmas cards August 11 on Facebook Live (and it will be recorded if you can’t be there at 9:30AM). I will be demonstrating 3 Christmas cards and a Christmas gift box as I launch the new Mini Catalog. Kits are $10 for guests, free for club members. Contact me by Wednesday and I will deliver or mail your kits to you. You can create the cards at your leisure watching the recorded Facebook Live on the Stampalosopher Facebook page or right here on the blog.
