#imbriningbirthdaysback October’s Cards

Each month I send out Birthday Cards to family, friends and you! So I thought I’d share with you my this month’s card and a tutorial for it.

I was really feeling fall when I designed this card and it’s reflected in the colors – don’t you love the way the Painted Autumn stamp set makes the image feel water colored?

I’ve also made a tutorial for you in case you’d like to make some too. After all who doesn’t love getting snail mail in their box? There is nothing better than a hand stamped birthday card,  right?

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.

Team Getaway Fun with the Holiday Catalog!

As I mentioned yesterday I held my team retreat last weekend. It was 3 wonderful days of fellowship, stamping, and laughter. As usual I was a bit remiss in taking photos of us together during the event. (Note to self put a sticky note out to remind me next time. since I get side tracked easily at these events. LOL). But you are in luck because I did take photos of some of the project everyone was working on.

Our group was a bit smaller than normal but that didn’t slow us down any. Actually it was kind of nice since we were able to spread out. You know how it goes 6 feet is never enough space with all those new goodies! Here is a photo of the space set up and ready for everyone to arrive.

Deborah brought this cute little treat for everyone made with the Lemon Zest Bundle (145359/145360).

I can’t wait to make some of these up myself to surprise folks with – that is if I can find the lemon candies. (3 stores already and no luck! Sigh… maybe it is the eclipse and they’ve gone the way of moon pies!)

She also brought this cute little bag she was working on using the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (144613) and Spooky Cat Stamp Set (144749).

And do you see the yummy Basic Black Vintage Crochet Trim (144611)? I can’t wait to start working with it!

And Cindy made these wonderful little post it holders for everyone.

On to cards – Want to see some of the wonderful cards we made in our shoe box swap?

Anna’s uses a couple of the new products from the Holiday Catalog.

I just love the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder (144686), snowflakes are my thing any how, but this card was soooo quick and easy perfect for holiday cards!

And Deborah’s is a new twist on the ever popular Swirly Bird Stamp Set (141749).

And my card – of course it uses the Musical Season Bundle (146048/146049) and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (144623).

I love the way the french horn cuts out of the Champagne Foil Paper (144748).  You may see this one turn up at my catalog launch (watch for more information coming soon.)

And how about this final card that Cindy made using the Painted Harvest stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. Soft and lovely – I knew I’d end up wanting this bundle when I saw her working with things at the retreat!

And here is a fun note card that Anna surprised me with for my promotion using the Icing on the Cake Stamp Set (143664). I was admiring it while she was stamping but had no clue it was for me – what a surprise!

I have such wonderful stamping friends and team members!

And last but not least how about this cute little thank you card made with the Bella & Friends stamp set (141867/141870)?

So what do you think? Love the new items too in my 2017 Holiday Catalog PreOrder Goodies Video from yesterday (Click HERE to see the video) and today’s projects? It’s just a peek of what’s inside the 2017 Holiday Catalog! And as I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? Right!  Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose!
