2020 CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Hi Crafters!  It’s time for Christmas in July 2020!  Due to COVID-19, we will be limiting each day to 4 crafters with masks required.

WHEN:  The door opens on Thursday July 16 10AM – 5 PM, Friday July 17 10AM – 5PM, Saturday July 18 9AM – 4PM, Monday July 20 10AM – 5PM.  Come anytime during the listed hours on your pre-scheduled day.  I simply ask you be ready to leave at the ending time. 

WHERE: 533 Emerson Circle, Bolingbrook

WHY:  It’s time to start revving up your holiday creativity

HOW:  We will use social distancing, wear masks, wash hands and/or use hand sanitizer frequently.  Each crafter will be given a micro crate for his/her tools.  No one will touch his/her tools except the crafter.  For sanitation reasons, I will run the Big Shot for each person.  Stamps, inks, Washi Tape, and blender pens will be wiped down between uses if I don’t have multiples.  Please bring your own beverage and snack.  There will be Christmas cookies (store bought) which I will be happy to serve with tongs.   Please be respectful of everyone.  Even though we will be in Phase 4, I remain extremely concerned about the Coronavirus.  I want this to be a fun, creative and safe time for all.

HOW MUCH:  Cards will be $2.50 each.  All supplies will be provided except Wink of Stella.  You can bring your own or add the Wink of Stella at home.  If you wish, you may purchase a new Wink of Stella for $6.95.  This will be yours to take home.  Hubby Norb wanted to add a 25% COVID-19 charge but I ignored him!  As the date nears, I may ask you to bring a few of your personal tools such as snips, bone folder, etc.  I will let you know.

NOW FOR THE FUN PART:  2020 Christmas in July

Washi Christmas Tree

WASHI CHRISTMAS TREE comes to us from daughter Debbie.  She developed this card last year and I was very impressed.  I did choose to add a bit ribbon for texture and dimension.  There is lots of Washi Tape to choose from – reds, greens, golds, silvers.  This is a very simple but elegant card.  The tree is die cut with Woods Dies.  Softly Fallen is embossed on the die-cut top layer.  A tree form is used to adhere the Wash Tape to; the taped form is adhered inside the top layer.  Merry Christmas is pre-cut with the Scan’n Cut and can be adhered with half mini dimensionals or rolled glue dots.

Washi Christmas Tree msg layerThe message layer is embellished with Washi Tape of your choice and several stars that match the star of your Washi Christmas Tree. 

The most difficult part of this card is determining what Washi Tape you want to use and deciding what order to adhere it.

Bearing Gifts

BEARING GIFTS is from my retired Christmas stamp library.  The stamped image was enlarged and is pre-cut with the Scan’n Cut.  A black shadow is also pre-cut to frame the image.  Stampin’ Blends are used to color the image.  The card and coordinating envelope are 4 1/4 X 6 1/4, larger than the standard A2 size.  There are stars printed on the card, but I feel a few extra stars are needed.  The stamped sentiment is die-cut and embellished with a small twine bow.Bearing Gifts msg layer

The message layer consists of Cherry Cobbler cs layered with Whisper White.  I chose to fussy cut and adhere a bear and present.  This option is available to you.

Christmas Bouquet

CHRISTMAS BOUQUET is from the Wishing You Well stamp set which I was sad to see retire.  Although hard to see, this elegant card is embellished with silver glimmer paper to the right of the Springtime Foils strip, and also frames the art work.  A small silver metallic-edged bow ties the bouquet together.  There are several horizontal sentiments and dies that work well with this card.

Christmas Bouquet msg layerThe message layer is embellished with a simple image from Peace this Christmas stamped in Night of Navy to coordinate with the card front.

Holiday Birds

HOLIDAY BIRDS is the last card choice for 2020 Christmas in July.  This happy card features plaid DSP layered on Shaded Spruce, Cherry Cobbler or Night of Navy cs.  There are many plaids to choose from. The Whisper White layer is embossed in Woodland.  The long retired Bird Builder Punch is used to punch out the birds, wings and branches in your color choice.  Wings and branches can be punched in the plaid and/or gold glimmer card stocks; some will be pre-punched or you can punch your own.  A simple sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas is stamped in matching ink, die cut and shadowed in gold glimmer cs.    A twine bow in your color choice embellishes the top layer. 

Holiday Birds msg layerThe message layer is embellished with an additional bird.  An additional wing can be added to each bird adhered behind the bird.  I’m not sure why I didn’t think of that when daughter Debbie and I did the samples.  I will have an additional sample showing the double wings for 2020 Christmas in July. 

NOW I NEED YOUR HELP!  As this gathering is limited to 4 crafters per day for safety concerns, I need to know what day you would like to come.  If the day you choose is full, I will ask you to choose an alternate date.  Choosing your day is my #1 concern.  Then I need to know what cards you choose to create so I can plan a card rotation order.  And to have your kits ready to go on your scheduled day, I beg for as much time as possible.  

Healthy Blessings,

TEALIGHT CHRISTMAS

Cherry Cobbler Classic AngelResending this blog due to technical issues. 

Well, Crafters, it’s hard to believe our stamping year is almost over.  We’ve created hearts, lots of flowers, pumpkins, snowmen, cars, snow globes, and now it’s time for angels.  This is the first time in my 15 years with Stampin’Up that I have offered a tealight card but it seems so perfect with our angels.  I decided to make the cards tone on tone versus trying for contrast.  All of the Designer Series Paper is from the Brightly Gleaming Specialty collection.  Our first sample is in Cherry Cobbler and Copper.

Navy Classic AngelThe  sample to the left is in Night of Navy and Copper.  We are running a bit short on copper as Stampin’Up has it currently on back order with a warehouse delivery date of December 2.  I’ve reduced the copper decorative side pieces to 3/4” X 5 1/4”.  A 1” strip would be a bit easier to die cut but the 3/4” will work.  The first step in making this lovely card is to adhere the DSP to the card front with a REMOVABLE adhesive.  That allows us to die cut the center opening with matching layers.  The angels will be pre-stamped as it takes time for them to dry as it does anything stamped on vellum.  The stamped vellum is “sandwiched” between the DSP and the top card layer. 

PeacockThe die cut lantern is adhered over the angel “sandwich”.  I used liquid adhesive on the back of my lantern and found that by squeezing out a small amount of glue on my silicone craft sheet, by using a toothpick, I can easily put small dots around the back of the lantern and it sticks beautifully.  However, accidents do happen.  If you look closely at my samples, you might notice little additions that were used to cover up my adhesive mishaps. 

The Pretty Peacock sample to the left is quite attractive.  Peacock is one of the trending colors this year.  The angels stamped on the vellum come from 2 very old stamp sets that I refuse to part with.

Old Olive Littlelest AngelI refer to the angel used in the samples above as the “classic angel” and the angel in the Old Olive sample to the right, as the “Littlest Angel.”  The classic angels are stamped in the wonderful Celestial Copper Ink.  I’m hoping Stampin’Up carries the Delicata Metallic Inks over into the next season as the copper, gold and silver are all wonderful.  The littlest angel is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I’m embarrassed to say that I colored on the front of the vellum instead of the back but she still turned out cute. 

Ornaments with candleThe final sample from the Brightly Gleaming Designer Paper is my least favorite.  First, the paper is too busy for this card and second, instead of using the sentiment from Toile Christmas that was used for the angel samples, I used the Merry Christmas ribbon and it is not my favorite.  However, this sample shows the candle which is actually die cut from gold glimmer and “sandwiched” between 2 layers of vellum.  The candle can be substituted for the angel on any of the cards. 

You can do multiple cards but I will only be supplying 1 tealight.  All of the big box store should have them available.  The ones we will be using for stamp camp are from Hobby Lobby.  In case you are wondering when December Stamp Camp will be, the dates/times are:  Thursday December 5th from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday December 6th from 12 noon – 6 pm, and Saturday December 7th from 9 am – 4 pm.  We will also be making cute calendars for 2020.  These are perfect for stocking stuffers, are sized at 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 and fit perfectly in our standard A2 envelopes. 

Please let me know if you plan on coming to December Stamp Camp,  I want to make sure I have enough classic angels and littlest angels stamped, but don’t want to waste vellum.  The angels need to be pre-stamped to allow them time to dry.  The price remains $14 for 1 card and a pack of calendars.  If you choose to do no calendars and want to make 4 cards, that is fine.  If you want to do multiple cards and calendars, I will need to come up with a reasonable price.  Stay tuned for the blog post on our calendars. 

For the first time ever, I am offering a stamping class in January but we will be doing Iris Folding.  The class will be held on January 17th and January 19th with a limit of 5 crafters for each class. We will make 2 cards.  I will have iris folding samples out at December Stamp Camp.  At this exact moment, I’m not sure what the cards will be but I will announce the card theme shortly. 

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving, but don’t eat too much turkey!  Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

SO MANY STARS

So Many StarsThis is one of my favorite cards for this holiday season.  When we think about the true meaning of Christmas, this card says so much.  So Many Stars stamp set with the Stitched Stars Dies fills the night sky with many beautiful copper stars.  Thick Very Vanilla cs is layered with Night of Navy, Copper, and Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP.  The Banner Triple Punch gives our sentiment a crisp finish.  Although you can’t see it, the center of the copper layer is cut out and layered on a Sizzix adhesive sheet so that die cuts come out with the adhesive layer.  I know I had promised several folks that I would pre-cut the stars, but I’m finding some of the adhesive protective layer pulls off when the stars are removed from the dies so I may not be able to keep this promise.  Several stars are popped up on Dimensionals for a 3-D appearance.  Finally, adhesive backed copper star elements festoon the starry sky.  This is a very meaningful handmade gift from the heart!

Well crafters, you have seen the 4 offerings for November Stamp Camp.  If you haven’t already, please let me know which cards you wish to do and what day you might attend.  Thursday, 11/7 from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday 11/8 from 2 – 6 pm, and Saturday 11/9 from 9 am -  4 pm.  All supplies and tools are provided, as well as drinks and a snack.  The cost remains $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card.  For December, we will have only 1 Christmas card that will feature a tea light reflecting thru a window.  We will also be doing calendars.  For those of you who are new, you will be given 10 calendars.  You can make as many as you wish during Stamp Camp and finish the rest at home.  We can do either easel calendars or refrigerator calendars with a magnetic backing.  My personal calendars are shown below.  The calendar to the left is done on an easel; the calendar to the right has magnetic strips on the back and lives happily on my refrigerator.  These make great gifts and fit perfectly in the A2 envelopes we use.

I hope you can make it to November stamp camp.  Remember, the best gift is made with your hands and filled with your heart.

JINGLE BELLS

Jingle Bells 2019A Jingle Bells card is absolutely perfect for Christmas.  This Shaded Spruce card features the lovely Wrapped in Plaid DSP both as a card layer and as 2 of the punched Christmas trees.  Wrapped in Plaid comes in so many variations and I love each one.  The punched trees rest on a large die-cut circle of Shaded Spruce embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Gold is a prominent color in this card as we see a gold glimmer tree, gold stars on all the trees, and gold ribbon thru the card center.  2 Jingle Bells peek out from under the gold bow. The sentiment is die cut in Shaded Spruce with the Word Wishes dies.  Finally, Holiday Rhinestones glitter against the Wrapped in Plaid background.  A word of warning on mailing this card – I would recommend a padded envelope and having the card hand stamped.  The card would still be attractive without the added bells.

It’s hard to believe Christmas is so close!  My wish is that having Christmas in July and offering Christmas cards at each Stamp Camp since then helps supply you with handmade cards that come from the heart. 

I hope you can come to November Stamp Camp – Thursday November 7 from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday November 8 from 2 pm – 6 pm, and Saturday November 9 from 9 am – 4 pm.  I promise not to sing Christmas Carols!!!

Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

STILL SCENES

Snow Globe DSPSnow globes are a perfect choice for Christmas – whether you live in Arizona, Illinois or Alaska!  For October Stamp Camp, we are featuring a Snow Globe Card.  The products for our Still Scenes card can be found on page 43 of your Holiday Catalogue.  The Still Scenes Stamp Set includes the house and trees, the ornate globe holder, 2 sentiments, a small cluster of snowflakes and a dome stamp.  The Snow Globe Scenes Dies include much more – a small deer, 2 polar bears, 2 churches, 3 trees, and of course the dies for the globe and stand.  In the card to our left, I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends and used Shimmery Crystal Effects to adhere some Ice Stampin’ Glitter.  After the “snow” had dried, I took the Snow Globe Shaker Dome, removed the adhesive backing and CAREFULLY added additional Ice Stampin’ Glitter and Snowflake Sequins to the center of the globe.  The Still Scenes image was then adhered to the adhesive globe backing.  The globe was die cut from the front of the DSP layer, the adhesive on the front of the shaker dome was removed, and the snow globe popped right through the front of the DSP. 

Snow Globe PlaidOn both samples, I decided to add a rim around the globe to add focus to the scene.  Using a circle die about 1/8” larger than the globe die, I die cut a circle of Navy for the sample above and gold for the sample to the right.  The globe die was laid inside the circle and die cut.  This provided the thin circle that highlights the globe.  A coordinating color was used to die cut the globe base backing and a metallic foil was used for the outer base.  For the card to the right, I added Dazzling Diamonds to the roof and trees of the scene and used some loose in the dome with the ice glitter and sequins.  I find the Dazzling Diamonds is quite fine and likes to stick to the globe. 

The background paper for these cards comes from the Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the classic Wrapped in Plaid DSP.  I can only guarantee 1 each of the DSP designs shown in the samples.  Many crafters from September Stamp Camp saw the samples and have chosen to do 4 Snow Globe cards for October.  Thus the limit of 1 each of the designs shown above.  However, the other DSP patterns are lovely and you can see them in the Holiday Catalog.  I have purchased additional holiday sentiment dies so we are not limited to the sentiments shown above.

Make sure you let me know which day you will be coming for October Stamp Camp so I can insure we have the card stock pre-cut for the cards you choose to do.  The next 2 posts will be dedicated to Halloween – not scary cards – and are perfect for children and adults alike.

Fall Blessings, Rosemary (h)630.759.3089 – (c)630.965-1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

FROLICKING SNOWMEN

Snowmen Red cardEven though it is 85 degrees outside, the snow will be here before we know it!  These two snowmen from the Snowman Season Stamp Set are happy to be frolicking about.  The background features the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper (DSP) and we will be using two of the patterns.  The snow hat DSP seen here has lots of glitter.  The snowman on the left is stamped and punched out with the Snowman Builder Punch which punches out the actual snowman, the hat and the arms.  The snowman on the left is stamped and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I restamped the second snowman and fussy cut his scarf, colored it and adhered it to the punched little guy.  The hat is embellished with 3 red rhinestones.

SnowballsThis image depicts the actual snowballs the snowman is juggling about.  Stampin’Up has Snowfall Accents Puff Paint in the new Holiday Catalog.  You simply add a small drop of paint, apply heat with your heat tool and PRESTO! the snowballs grow in size and puff up.  I did find out that if your drop of paint is a little to big, you end up with a BIG snowball!  If you push down on the snowball, it puffs right back up! 

Snowmen Green CardThe other Let it Snow DSP is shown on the image to the left.  Same idea as the previous sample but the art piece is shifted to the left side of the card.  The punched snowman here is embellished with tiny red glimmer circles on his hat and buttons.  The sentiment is from the new Word Wishes Dies (page 197 in annual catalog).  This die set contains MERRY, HAPPY, DAY and all the holidays.

Snowmen Red card msg layerThe third snowman from the Snowman Season set is stamped on the message layer.  I added snowballs, colored the nose and buttons and fussy cut a hat from the DSP to add a bit of color.  These are fun cards and perfect for the holiday season and the snowy days ahead.

I can’t imagine it is almost September BUT it is.  September Stamp Camp will be held on September 5, 6 and 7 from 12N – 6 PM on the 5th, from 2 – 6PM on the 6th and from 9AM – 4 PM on the 7th.  Come when it is convenient for you.  Let me know which cards you wish to make and I will have your kit ready for you.  The price remains $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card.

You should have your holiday catalog by now.  If not, let me know and I will send one your way. For the month of September, I am offering a 20% discount on all Stampin’Up products. Holiday Catalog orders can be placed effective September 3rd and annual catalog items can be ordered now.  September is the time to replenish your card stock, order some of beautiful new DSP, and try the new Stampin’ Blends colors.  I absolutely adore the new Rococo Rose markers.  The Stampin’ Blends are the best markers I have used and truly blend. 

Posts for our other 3 September Stamp Camp cards will follow.  Don’t forget to check back.  Remember, a handmade card comes from the heart.

In the Woods

07.22.19 In the Woods new

Do you remember this tree from last year?  In the Woods dies are absolutely wonderful and this two-layer tree is one of my favorites.  The current card is a bit different from the one you saw last week at Christmas in July.  The Heirloom Frames Dies and 3D Embossing Folders that were on SU back order miraculously arrived on Monday.  This was the frame I had originally planned on using before I discovered it was on backorder.  I am still making adjustments to the card, but it will look very very similar to this for August Stamp Camp. 

07.22.19 In the Woods messageThe card and frame are in Marina Mist with Balmy Blue ink.  The Swirls and Curls embossing folder provides lots of texture.  The two layer tree is die cut from Sparkle Glimmer with the leaflets popped up with mini dimensionals and glue dots.  Rhinestones embellish the scene and add more glimmer.  Everyone seemed to like the sentiment used on the original card so I used it as the message layer, and added a star and stamped embellishment. 

This is our final card for August Stamp Camp – August 1st from 12N to 6 pm, August 2nd from 2 to 4 pm, and August 3rd from 9 am to 4 pm.  Please please please let me know which day you are coming and which cards you wish to do.

07.22.19 Xmas catalog cover The Christmas Catalog will be arriving later in August.  If you don’t receive yours in the mail, I will have extras for you to pick up at your leisure or at September Stamp Camp.  I will be offering a personal 20% product discount in September so it will be a great time to order any regular or holiday products.  There are some beautiful suites in this catalog as well as some that are just plain cute.  I love the Snowman Builder Punch that allows you to attach the arms going in any direction.  There’s also colored jingle bells and gold mini pizza boxes (just the right size for a cookie or 3 X 3 note cards.  There are stars, trees, deer, candles, cardinals, an angel, bells, a shepherd with his flock and so much more!

07.22.19 Xmas catalog imageI like this simple card embellished with trees punched from the new Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  See the little jingle bell attached to the sentiment?  This would be an “easy peasy” card to make!  Children and grandchildren could choose the DSP and help with placing the trees.  This card would show the recipient that you really care about them.  And that’s part of Christmas – sharing your caring!

CHRISTMAS WINDOW – Christmas in July

06.19.19 Xmas July WindowOur final card for Christmas in July is a Christmas window scene.  From my archives, I pulled one of my favorite sets – “Happy Scenes.”  This simple winter scene, stamped in Shaded Spruce is embellished with a die-cut gold deer from “Detailed Deer Dies.”  The window and flower box are die cut with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  There will be several wood patterns die-cut for you.  The window box is filled with assorted die-cut greenery which really pops with Wink of Stella.  “merryis die-cut on Cherry Cobbler and “Christmas” is stamped, die cut and shadowed with a Cherry Cobbler frame.  2 small flowers embellished with rhinestones provide extra sparkle. 

So, you may be asking yourself “and what is Rosemary going to do to help me create this card?”  Answer:  The Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron, and Whisper White cs has already been cut.  The goal is to have the window frames and window boxes, “merry”, flowers, greenery and gold deer die-cut for you.  “Christmas” will be stamped and die cut with the frame and coordinating shadow frame.  This does not leave too much for you to do other than adhere the pieces and hum Christmas Carols. 

As I’m sure you’ve read in the previous posts, Christmas In July will be held on Thursday July 18 from 12N to 7 PM and on Saturday July 20 from 9AM to 4 PM.  All materials, tools and creativity will be provided along with drinks and a snack of some type.  We will have as much pre-done for you as we can possibly do. BUT  if we don’t know what day you are coming, or which cards you wish to make, we can’t prep.  Thank you to those of you who have already responded with your card wishes.  Regarding cost, a Wink of Stella Brush has been included in the price.  You can do any combination of cards in multiples of 4.  4 cards is priced at $14, 8 cards is 23, 12 cards is $32, 16 cards is $41, etc.  Each additional 4 cards is $9.  Whew – I hate high finance.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR CHRISTMAS IN JULY CARD WISHES!

PEACE – Christmas in July

06.19.19 Xmas July PeaceAt Christmas time, many people wish for the gift of PEACE.  This simple gold and white card with a wintry tree, snowy background, birds and a small deer reflects PEACE.  Thoughtful Branches” is the retired die set used for our winter tree.  The gold deer comes from the current “Detailed Deer Dies” and the little birds from the retired “Swirly Bird” set.  The Cherry Cobbler card card base and layers have eye-catching opposing rounded corners.  The Detailed Trio Punch allows crafters to easily and quickly round corners. The Softly Falling embossing folder leaves snowflakes tumbling from the sky,  Sparkle Glimmer Paper provides snowy ground and the sparkling tree.  Gold and Cherry Cobbler birds embellish this peaceful setting.  I must admit this is one of my favorite holiday cards.

This picturesque yet easy to make card will have all the pieces die cut for you. The card stock has been cut, and die cutting the individual pieces is next up on my agenda. Again, like the other cards we have seen, you will simply adhere the pieces and presto – your card will be similar to the sample seen above.

So when can you make this card?  The dates for this annual Stamp Camp are July 18 & 20 – Thursday July 18 from 12 N – 7 PM and Saturday July 20 from 9 AM – 4 PM.  I  need a firm count on how many you wish to do of each card. The cost for Christmas in July includes your very own brand new Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for your use during this Stamp Camp and then take home – an $8 value!  As always, the cost includes all supplies, tools and adhesive.  Water and soda are in the fridge to keep you hydrated, and a snack to keep you from starving.  You are welcome to bring a snack for yourself or something to share. 

clip_image001_thumb3Please please please let me know which date you will be attending and which cards you wish to make.  The last card will be posted shortly.
