Changes – CARD BUFFET December 2020

WORLD PEACE

10.27.20 Peace card goldIn today’s crazy world, I truly wish for PEACE.  The result of my wish is this simple but elegant Christmas card.  The base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of Night of Navy.  The top layer is Shimmery White card stock embossed with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder.  The embossed circles carry the circle design element throughout.  The card is cased from Sharp Notes by Sherylblogsspot.com.

10.27.20 Peace card copper realThis easy card can be done in gold, copper or silver.  The globe is part of the Beautiful World bundle.  To ease the issue of adhering the globe to the navy circle, the new SU adhesive sheets are adhered to the back of the metallic card stock before die-cutting.  The die-cut globe simply requires peeling off the sticky backing before adhering to the circle.  No sticky fingers or liquid adhesive to worry about!

IMG_5255As I did not have a stamp for the sentiment “Let there be PEACE on earth,” I typed the wording out, printed it in Navy and used the stitched rectangle die for cutting. The navy sentiment layer is a 3/4” cs strip punched with the new Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.  The globe and sentiment are both popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The ornament hook comes from the retired Delicate Ornaments dies.  This is such a small die and so easy to lose.  The original die was lost at the Bolingbrook Park District during a class I was teaching. 

10.27.20 PeaceThe message layer features 2 stamps from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set.  I have pre-stamped several and have a Stamparatus set up and ready to stamp this beautiful message for you if you like it. 

World Peace is truly a very simple card and is one of my favorites.  Please let me know as soon as possible which cards you choose to do for November Stamp Camp and which day you plan on coming.

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

2020 CHRISTMAS IN JULY

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,

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

BLUEBERRY BLOOMS

05.30.20 Blueberry sameI cased this Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue card from Pinterest and can’t find the name of the creator.  The stamp set name is Thoughtful Blooms and was one of the freebies from Sale-A-Brations this past winter.  In order to keep the top, bottom and sides as equal as possible, the Stamparatus became my very best friend.

 

05.30.20 Blueberry differentThe individual flowers are stamped in Blueberry Bushel and Balmy Blue and cut with the Scan and Cut.  You can layer them as shown on the top card – or  not.  You can make the top and bottom very similar – or not. You can use all 7 blue rhinestones – or not!  Lots of choices for you.  What do you think of the interesting embossed background?  This is the Stone 3D Embossing Folder.  I’m sad to say it will not be in the new SU catalog.  I love the interesting texture it provides. 

Blueberry message more flrsThe message layer for Blueberry Blooms can either be blank, or have “hi” in script stamped in Blueberry Bushel as shown.  Extra flowers can be clustered in a corner or throughout the layer.  You can add a personalized message.  The envelope is stamped in Blueberry Bushel with the chain image seen above. 

05.30.20 Blueberry WOSWink of Stella (WoS) adds so much to this card.  As seen in this photo, the WoS adds such glitter to the finished card.  I do have several WoS available if you need one.  The cost is $6.95. 

You have now seen all 4 Non-Stamp Camp cards.  If you wish to pick the kits, please let me know by text, phone or E-mail.  I will be preparing the kits after they are ordered so you will need to allow me several days.  The cards remain any 4 for $14 and $3 for each additional card.

You should be receiving your 2020-21 Stampin’Up catalog by mail.  I have received a call from one happy crafter telling me she had received hers.  I am still waiting for mine.  Please let me know if you don’t have yours by June 20 as I pay SU for the catalogs and to have these delivered to you. 

Blessings and Happy Crafting,

Rosemary – (home)630.759.3089 – (text/cell) – 630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

PAINTED POPPIES

In my previous blog post, I mentioned that the Hibiscus was one of my favorite flowers.  Well, the Poppy is another favorite of mine!  This card was case’d from Stampitupwithjamie.com.

Painted Poppies flat and butterflySometimes you see a card that is perfect and there is no reason to make any changes.  This was almost one of those cards.  I did change the top layer from Whisper White to Very Vanilla and added the linen look with the Subtle Textured Expressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). I also changed the sentiment and how it was displayed.  I am in love with these 2 dies from Sending Flowers and incorporating them for a sentiment. 

Painted Poppies glimmer and butterfly

The color combination of Grapefruit Grove, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow is extremely pleasing and denotes a peaceful feeling.  The Poppy Moments Dies are perfect for die-cutting all the pieces.  The Grapefruit Grove outline is a bit tricky to adhere so that is being die cut with Sizzix backed adhesive.  The second card sample has a bit of Wink of Stella bling and a 2-part center with a rhinestone.  By the way, did you see the butterflies?

Painted Poppies message Calypso backgroundOne of the dies that comes with the Poppy Moments Dies is a poppy pattern with the vacant portions forming the poppies.  For the message layer, a piece of Calypso Coral cs is adhered to the back of the Very Vanilla to allow the color to carry thru from the front to the back. Note the humorous message used.  This comes from the Birthday Wit set.  The Stamparatus  is used as a double stamping is needed due to the heavy black area.

Painted Poppies message green backgroundThe message layer for the second sample has the olive background peeking thru the poppy images.  Although not as colorful as the message layer above, it is still very pleasing.

This is the final card for March Stamp Camp.  We have seen daisies, tulips, hyacinths, poppies, and ladybugs – lots of spring cheer.  Please let me know what day you plan on coming and which cards you wish to do.  The dates are March 5, 6, and 7.  Everything you need to make your cards is provided including beverage and a snack.  The cost remains $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card. 

In April we will have Stamp Camp on April 2, 3 and 4.  We will be making both birthday and Easter cards. Mark your calendars now!

Blessings, Rosemary – (H)630.759.3089 – (C)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

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

WITCHES BREW & FROGGIE STEW

CauldronYuk – Witches Brew and Froggie Stew – no thank you!!!!  At least our Halloween card is cuter than the name my Hubby gave it!  This Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black card features the Cauldron Bubble retired set we saw in our previous post.  The Pumpkin Pie layer was embossed with a retired star studded embossing folder.  The stars carry over to the Toil and Trouble DSP.  The cauldron and froggies are die-cut and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  Several of the frogs, the cauldron background and the cauldron itself are popped up with Dimensionals which gives the card lots of dimension. This simple, yet colorful Halloween card is perfect for children and adults alike!

You’ve now seen the 4 options for October Stamp Camp – Thursday October 3rd from 12N – 6PM, Friday October 4th from 2PM-6PM, and Saturday October 5th from 9AM – 4PM.  All your supplies and tools are provided as well as water, pop and a treat.  The cost remains $14 for any 4 cards with each additional card $3.  Please please please let me know which day you plan on coming and what cards you wish to create.  Those of you who have already placed your card “order”, please let me know which day you might stop by and if there are any changes to the cards you specified at September Stamp Camp.

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

HALLOWEEN WITCHES

Witch orangeWitches and black cats scare away the rats – and just in time for Halloween.  Cauldron Bubble Stamp Set and the matching Cauldron Dies are now retired but were in the planning stages for Halloween 2018.  After my 100 year-old mother fell, broke her hip and subsequently passed away, plans for October Stamp Camp 2018 were packed away.  Debbie and I decided to resurrect this cute set for October Stamp Camp 2019.  This cute little witch is holding her friendly black cat.  Both die-cut images are colored with Stampin’ Blends and are popped up against a die-cut Pumpkin Pie Swirly Circle.  The Whisper White top layer has been embossed with my favorite Subtle Embossing folder. 

Witch orange message layerDebbie decided to carry her swirls and cat theme to the message layer as shown here.  The Gorgeous Grape and Pumpkin Pie add nice contrast to her Granny Apple Green Card.  This is one of those simple cards you can make in a jiffy and give to your children, co-workers or neighbor.  Remember, a hand-made card comes from the heart and shows that you care.

Witch greenThis Cauldron Bubble card can easily be done in different colors.  The primary colors can easily be interchanged.  Our final post for October will be another Halloween card from this set.

As a reminder – October Stamp Camp will be held on October 3rd from 12N – 6PM, October 4th from 2PM – 6PM, and October 5th from 9AM – 4PM.  Due to shortening daylight hours and the upcoming time change, effective November Stamp Camp thru March Stamp Camp, the Thursday hours will change to 11AM – 6PM.

Don’t forget to let me know which day are coming and which cards you wish to make.  Those of you who told me your card choices at September Stamp Camp, just let me know which day you are coming and if you have any changes to what you originally requested.  Looking forward to seeing you!

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!

Free as a Bird

Free as a Bird is one of the new Free as a Bird yellowStampin’ Up suites from the 2019-2020 catalog.  For June Stamp Camp, this stamp set is being featured on an easel card.  Although dies are not available for this stamp set, there is beautiful Bird Ballard DSP.  The Bird Ballad bundle is sold with the new Stitched Nested Labels which you can see used here.  The Bird Ballad suite bundle is $94.75 BUT includes the Free as a Bird stamp set, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Bird Ballad DSP, Bird Ballad Laser-cut Cards & Tin, 10 yards of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, and 24 Bird Ballad Trinkets!  $94.75 is not such a scary price when you consider everything included.  I opted for the Free as a Bird Bundle which includes the stamp set and the Stitched Nested Labels Dies for $51.25 – 10% off the individual price.

07.22.19 Free as a Bird multiThe birds and flowers in the top easel card sample are colored with assorted yellow Stampin’ Blends – Daffodil Delight, Pineapple Punch, So Saffron (new) and Mango Melody, plus a bit of Smoky Slate.  The sample to the left has some added color in the flowers – light and dark Rococo Rose (new).  Of course you can color your birds and flowers in any color you choose!  The card base is Basic Black and the Daffodil Delight rectangle is embossed with the 3D Basket Weave embossing folder.  The “pop-up” piece that holds the easel up is a simple stamped “HELLO” that is die cut with the smallest Stitched Nested Labels Die and layered on the next size Nested Labels Die in Basic Black.  This double layer is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals which gives it the “pop” needed to hold the easel.

07.22.19 Free as a Bird flatI attempted to flatten the card for this picture but it refused to stay absolutely flat.  This, however, shows how the card would look when removed from the envelope. 

Don’t forget to let me know if you will be coming to June Stamp Camp and which cards you would like to do.  I’m looking forward to working with colors other than the Christmas in July reds, greens and navy!
