I guess I'd better get stamping because I only have 4 more samples from my 10-10-20 class to share! I will reward myself with crafting time as motivation to get my house cleaned. Nothing says I love you like clean sheets and homemade cards ;)
I will have family in town for Thanksgiving so my blog may be neglected next week.
Have a wonderful day!

So, I am tossing around the idea of adding a class to my calendar on Friday, December 4 in the evening. I think it will be a gift type class. One idea is gift tags. I actually have several other ideas but I wanted to put a feeler out there and see if there is any interest. Leave a comment or email me and let me know. Thanks.
Hope your day is filled with fun!

All products are Stampin' Up! The paper is old olive, really rust, whisper white, and certainly celery. The ink is soft suede, really rust, old olive, versamark, white craft, and crushed curry. The stamp set is Trendy Trees.
I have no complaints or funny stories today...just the facts!
Have an amazing Monday!

Here is another card for Saturday's class. I think this skunk is so cute. The sentiment says "I stink you're sweet!" It could possibly mean different things. The way it is written it is supposed to mean I think you are sweet. If you add a comma you could use this as an apology card: I stink, you're sweet! The stamp set is called Pun Fun. I used real red, very vanilla, and black card stock. The skunk is stamped on watercolor paper with stazon and colored with a blender pen and watercolor pencils. I added a little gel pen to the flower petals. All products are Stampin' Up! If you have any questions, let me know.
Have a fun filled weekend!

This is the other project we will be making at my workshop. It is an enevlope that is crimped. It has a litte notecard in it (very obvious in the next photo). I wanted to do something other than just a card. These are a lot of fun to make. Last year for Valentine's day I made these (with a different design) for my boys' classes. Inside of them instead of a card, they held fun dip candy. That meant I made 70 of them. They weren't quite as much fun to make in that quantity!
There is a wonderful tutorial here. I used the stamp set Fresh Cuts. I used Regal Rose, Old Olive, and Black ink. I also used the tag punch and half back pearls from the Pretties kit. The ribbon is old olive striped grograin. All products are Stampin' Up! Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to cutting paper I go!
Have a fantastic weekend!

So have you ever bought a shirt or pair of shoes that you liked so much you had to buy one of every color? I haven't but I know many people that have. Instead, I buy cardstock in every color! I ran out of the garden green cardstock so I flipped the designer paper over and used old olive instead. I also stamped the greeting on the designer paper instead of the plain. That really wasn't on purpose, but I couldn't flip the paper over because I already did! It's funny how different the cards look with relatively small changes. Oh yeah, I changed the ribbon too.
My friend is hosting a workshop for me this weekend. Would you like a sneak peek of what we will be making? If you have already said you were coming you can't back out now or you will give me a complex! The photo doesn't give this card nearly enough credit. The Medallion stamp on the cardbase is so awesome! I can see myself using that stamp over and over again. I also used For All You Do for the flowers and the greeting is from Trendy Trees. We are actually doing another project, but I am going to wait until tomorrow or Monday to share it with you.
I have some card classes coming up. Consider this your personal invitation to join me! The November class is a 10-10-20 (ten cards, ten envelopes, $20). It is on Saturday, November 14 from 2-5, and it will be repeated on Tuesday, November 17 from 11-2. The cards will be all occasions. I have a thank you card class scheduled in December as well. Details can be found here.
