November Stamp Camp–Thanksgiving Owl

Happy ThanksgivingOur punched Thanksgiving Owl is sending a happy message as he perches on a fall leaf and Old Olive stem.  I designed this card in the fall colors of Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, and a touch of Early Espresso.  The wood-grained DSP adds a nice touch to the background.  The fall leaf is created from a die-cut More Mustard maple leaf that was folded in half, and run through the new wood-grained embossing folder to add the veins in the leaf.  Cajun Craze, Red Riding Hood, and tangerine inks were sponged on the leaf and misted with water.  The water blends the colors together for the fall effect.

Thanksgiving Owl is one of the four cards we will be creating at the November Stamp Camp.  The date is November 9th from 4 PM to 9 PM, and November 10th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  $10 is the cost for all the materials.  All you need to bring is yourself!  As a reminder, the Christmas Stamp Camp will be held December 7th and 8th. This will feature 4 holiday cards – a beautiful snowflake, a Christmas tree, a cute line-up of holiday items, and a simple ornament card.  Mark you calendar now.

November Stamp Camp–Blooming with Kindness

Blooming with KindnessWhen I think of fall flowers, the chrysanthemum always comes to mind.  The Blooming with Kindness stamp set features this beautiful chrysanthemum and several nice sayings.  I used a color scheme of More Mustard, Basic Gray, and Tangerine Tango for this Thanksgiving card.  The mum is stamped in tangerine , sponged in So Saffron, and spattered in tangerine.  The Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper carries through the color scheme while adding an interesting visual pattern.  The card is finished with a bit of Basic Gray taffeta ribbon and an antique brad.  Although this card has a Happy Thanksgiving message, it could easily be used for any fall occasion. 

Hope you can come and make this card during the November Stamp Camp on Friday, November 9th from 4 PM – 9 PM or Saturday, November 10th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  We will be creating 4 cards and the cost will be $10.00.  I have missed everyone during my knee/ankle rehab time and would LOVE to see you all!

November Stamp Camp–Rejoicing with You

Christmas AngelThe Rejoicing with You stamp set is new this year and is one of my favorites.  Deb created this card using Very Vanilla card stock, Detail Gold embossing powder, and the new Champagne Glimmer Paper.  Participants have the option of embossing the angel in copper instead of gold.  The first layer of Very Vanilla is dry-embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  The simple message inside the card is also heat-embossed in gold (or copper). 

Rejoicing with You is one of 4 cards (2 Thanksgiving, 2 Christmas)  we will be making at the November Stamp Camp – Friday, November 9th from 4 PM – 9 PM and Saturday, November 10th from 9 AM to 10 PM.  The cost for this stamp camp is $10.  I hope you can make it as I would love to see everyone. 

Blessings, Rosemary – 630-759-3089

November Stamp Camp is Nov 9th and 10th

Just wanted to remind everyone that the dates for the November Stamp Camp were moved to Friday, November 9th – 4 PM to 9 PM and Saturday, November 10th – 9 AM to 4 PM.  The dates were changed to accommodate my late discharge from the rehab facility.  Samples are complete and will start posting tomorrow – Thursday, November 1st.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!
