Snowflake Swing Card

Snowflake flip flop

Yes, we will be “swinging snowflakes” at the Paperrose01 October Stamp Camp!  Christmas is coming.   This set (Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies – $32.95) is part of the “All is Calm” suite in the Stampin’ Up holiday catalogue. Note the view of these dies:  Snowflake Card Thinlits DiesI don’t like to pay $32.95 for a die set, but this set provides dies for a heart, tree, 2 snowflakes, a banner, “joy”,  “brrr” and “snow,” in addition to the actual snowflake card.   I almost created the card with the All is Calm DSP (Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky) but decided to jump right into the red and green holiday color scheme.  The Nordic Noel DSP provided just the colors I was looking for. The card was cut at 5 7/16 X 8 1/2 in order to provide the third panel for a message.  “Snowflake flip flop open The “Letterpress Winter” stamp set ($25.95) coordinates with the Snowflake die set and provides the image for the large snowflake.  Dies from the snowflake thinlits set cut the Garden Green and small Calypso Coral snowflakes with a rhinestone shining from the center.    “Joy” has been cut in both Whisper White and Garden Green with the green providing the shadow effect.  Real Red, Garden Green and Calypso Coral candy dots embellish the lower, outer portion of the closed card.  Small snowflakes in white, Calypso Coral and Garden Green embellish the inside panel of the card.  Additional snowflakes could be added to the card front but it is important to remember the concept that “less is more.”  This festive card could be done in many different color combinations and would be appropriate for any of the winter months.

This is the first of 4 holiday cards we will be making at the Paperrose01 Stamp Camp on October 2 (2 – 9 PM), October 3 (2 – 9 PM) and October 4 (9 AM – 4 PM).  Other times can be arranged if this does not work for you.  We will be creating this Snowflake Swing Card, a Christmas or Halloween Easel Card (you choose), a Trim the Tree card, and a Graphic 45 card from the “An Eerie Tale” paper series.  The cost for this stamp camp is $12.00.  If you prefer a kit, please let me know as soon as  you can and allow 2 days for kit preparation.  Cost for the kit is also $12.00. 

I will be holding 2 special classes in addition to the November 6, 7, 8 stamp camp and the December 4, 5, 6 stamp camp. 

Iris Folding – two cards (one Christmas, one fall) on Friday October 17th from 3 – 5 PM and 7 – 9 PM; Saturday October 18th from 10 AM – 12 N and 1 – 3 PM. As I will need to demonstrate and give verbal instructions, I am giving specific times. The cost will be $9 and will include all materials and supplies. I will require a firm commitment for this class due to the materials I must purchase and prepare.  We will be working with several mediums – ribbon, felt, washi paper, and foils.  Iris Folding is beautiful and so easy! You just need one or two good eyes and patience!

Stamp-A-Stack – 3 or 4 (your choice) each of 5 different Christmas cards (total of 15 or 20 cards.) Thursday November 13th and Friday November 14th from 2 – 9 PM and Saturday November 15th from 9 AM to 4 PM. These cards will be totally different from cards done at Stamp Camp and will use different stamp sets. I will require a firm commitment for the stamp-a-stack due to the number of cards that must be prepped.  Samples and price will be posted.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding stamp camp or the upcoming two special classes.  Fall Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 –
