SEASHELLS

Hi crafters!  It’s time for some paper crafting.  We are creating a fun fold, 2 different techniques and some farmyard chickens! 

03.30.21. Seashells embossedSeashells is the easiest card ever!  You start with a 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 piece of Seaside Spray card stock.  With a sponge, you apply a very thin coat of White Frost Shimmer paint,  While it is drying, you can stamp your sentiment and message.  Once dry, you simply run the frosted pearlescent sheet thru the Big Shot in the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and adhere it to your card base!  Voila – you have a BEAUTIFUL card.  Simply die cut your sentiment, adhere to the card with Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon, add 3 pearls and you are DONE!  An elegant card that is also so very simple!

If so, you simple take your pearlescent Rosemary’s StampinUp Store one single piece and is easily adhered to the card front.  The sentiment is again adhered with Seaside Spray ribbon and 3 pearls colored with Stampin Blends are added to the picture!

Seashells coloredBut perhaps you would like a card with more color.  Although more time consuming that the previous seashell cards, 3 colored seashells are added to this card front.  A few embossed seashell fronts have been run in Blushing Bride, So Saffron, and Soft Sea Foam.  These are available for you to cut out shells with your snips, as well as fronds and grasses to use on your message layer. The shells are adhered to the card front, the sentiment is adhered as shown in the previous cards, and 3 pearls are added.  3 different cards that all start the same way!  A new technique is learned! 

April Stamp Camp is right around the corner!  April 8th from 10am – 4pm, April 9th from 10am – 4pm, and April 10th from 9am – 4pm.  I would like to keep our maximum attendees to 4 for one more month!  By May, I’m hoping many of us will be fully vaccinated and we can craft in a more relaxed setting.  I know a couple of you have received both vaccines.  I have my second one on April 6th so I am hoping I don’t have a reaction and will be fit as a fiddle by Thursday April 8th! 

The retiring list for the current catalog is out and can be reached by pressing Rosemary’s StampinUp Store.  Then press SPECIALS and ASK ME FOR DETAILS, and you will be taken to the retiring items.  Many items are discounted.  The bundles that are not marked retiring will no longer be sold as bundles with the 10% savings.  Sadly, the White Frost Shimmer Paint is on the Retired List.  This is what we use on the cards shown above.  I checked 5 minutes ago and it was not sold out and selling for $8.  Amazon is selling the same product for $12.05.  If you want a bottle or 2, let me know and I will include it in my next order IF it is still available.

Please let me know which cards you wish to do, and what day you plan on coming.  Right now there are 2 openings on Thursday and Friday/Saturday are fully open.  But masks and hand sanitizers please.

Looking forward to seeing you!  Rosemary – (H)630.759.3089 – (C)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
