Tips for using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set

Today’s card is made using the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and there are a couple of things that will make you more successful when you use this set. So today not only will I be sharing the tutorial for the Holiday Catalog Kick Off Make n Take, but I’ve also got a little video for you sharing some basics for this stamp set.

First here is the card that we made.

I love the way that this set has a built in watercolor feel to it – and it has quickly become one of my favorites to use with it’s pretty font. I used Fresh Fig for the flowers on this card and love the richness of the color.

Want the instructions to make this card? Well here is the tutorial

The flowers are  fun to stamp, but I recommend completing one before moving on to the next so you remember your lining up point easier.

2017 Color Rings

This week I’ll be sharing with you the projects and items we made from my Holiday Catalog Kick Off a couple of weeks ago.

Want to see one of the goodies those who attended my Holiday Catalog Kick Off received when they placed a qualifying order?

It’s a Color Ring – containing all 50 current Stampin’ Up! colors!!!

It’s been awhile since the Color Refresh in 2013 when I did these the last time, and mine was looking pretty tattered. Everyone loved them then, so I thought why not do one again?

These rings are wonderful to carry with you when your out shopping and/or trying to match colors for a project.  I’ve got one that I carry in my purse that I’ve had for years. (You can click HERE to see that blog post.)

These were so popular that I thought others might enjoy having one too.

Is this something that you’d like to have in craft room? Or so you can carry with you too? Want to make one of these for yourself?  Well it’s easy. All you need is my organization file folder labels that I’ve posted HERE and some card stock.

These little rings are 2″ x 3″ and hold all 4 of our Color Collections in addition to the 2 sets of In Colors.

Color Ring – Two Great Options:

Want one but don’t want to make one yourself? That’s OK – you have 2 options you can choose from. But don’t delay because these 2017 Color Rings are only available while supplies last!

Option 1: Place an order with me during the month of September for $50 or more in product and use the Host Code RDZGJVPC and I’ll mail one to you for free! ( You know you will be ordering any ways with all the wonderful NEW products found in the Holiday Catalog!)

Option 2: Just click the PayPal button to purchase one from me for just $10 (including postage) and I’ll mail it out to you lickety split! (I know you can make it – But will you? Let me save you the time!)



 

Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a video tutorial with you for a cute little treat!

On a personal note here is my Tropical Storm Irma Update

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting this past week. Thank you for your emails of concern asking how we were here – I caught up on emails yesterday and I’m hoping to be back on track with new posts and my Newsletters next week.
Here in the east corner of Georgia we were hit pretty hard by what once was Hurricane Irma. While it was a tropical storm by the time it reached us, it still packed a wallop for us here in the  mountains. Habersham County experienced wide spread power outages and tree damage. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot, but we are a small rural county and we had over 25,000 plus outages and still have over 12,000 to repair as of last nights HEMC update.
While we were extremely lucky to only have this type of damage it is taking a while to get us back up and running again. The line men and others have been diligently working on getting power back and I’m grateful to all those who have come in from other areas and states to help us here in Georgia. I’m extremely grateful for all the hard work and long hours they have put in. It is dangerous work.
 I’m thankful our daughter joined us from South Georgia in the wee hours of Saturday morning so we were all under one roof. (You know how we moms worry.)
We were also blessed with lower than normal temperatures, so our “camping” was not unpleasant. However, I’m happy to say we were lucky and got power on late Thursday night, but many are still without. One forgets how reliant we are on power.
We ate meals out of our thawing freezers using the grill and I quickly learned how to “perk” coffee with a tea kettle and strainer! After all it’s the little things right?
The images are heart breaking that I’ve seen and don’t know where to begin or to put my thoughts into words, we’ve had family and friends in Houston and now in Florida.
 Our hearts go out to those who are affected by this storm – know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you begin recovery.
