Christmas Card Stamp a Stack: In The Pines

It’s time to get started on Christmas Cards (if you haven’t already).  The time consuming part is the design, cutting and prepping. This class has that part done for you. You will complete the fun part – the stamping, assembling, and writing notes and sending to family and friends. My plan is to offer several of these classes between now and December.  And the best part – we will do this with safe social distancing. This is an at home class and available for porch pickup or in the mail.

Christmas Card Stamp A Stack – In the Pines

This first Stamp a Stack class will feature the In The Pines stamp set on page 43 for the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.  If you remember my 12 cards of Christmas challenge – this is going to be card 4 & 5. I’ve already completed one set of 12 and will complete another set as part of this class. 

Class supplies will include all the cut card stock, paper, envelopes, ribbon, and die cut, and embossed pieces. You will supply your own stamps, ink and adhesive. A written tutorial with photos will be emailed to you and a link to a video showing you how to make the card. Each class kit will include supplies to make 12 of the same card. I will also schedule a zoom for us to gather virtually to make our cards together. Date to be determined after everything is mailed.

Options:

  • Christmas Card Stamp a Stack: $25 (porch pick up price)
  • #1 Add On for mailing to you: $8 (mailed to your house)
  • #2 Add On In The Pines stamp set: $21
  • #3 Add On In the Pines Bundle – stamp set & dies: $51.25

Register & Pay by Aug 25th.

Register Here ==> https://atmonikasplace.com/event-registration/

On the registration link you need to select the base class for $25 and then select any add ons – mailing directly to you, add the stamp set or the bundle. These are offered at catalog price without additional shipping/tax. Remember to select all the options that apply to you and pay online or mail a check prior to Aug 26th.  This is a prepaid class.

I will be ordering all the supplies and add-ons on the 26th. Once the order arrives the cutting, prepping and packaging will take place. I estimate having everything ready to go out by Sept. 4th.

Additional supplies you need to complete cards exactly as I did.

Maui Achievers Blog Hop – So Grateful

Hello – it’s Monika Davis from the USA.  I’m joining the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop this month.  This blog hop is for demonstrator all over the world that earned the Maui Incentive trip last year.  There are many amazing stampers in this group so be sure to visit the other blogs in the hop.  The list is down below.  I’m so excited to have earned this incentive trip and go on one of my bucket list trips.  A special thanks to my customers and team members for supporting me throughout the year.  Greg tells me all the time that he can’t believe the places we have been able to see because of Stampin’ Up! – now to achieve the next one……

So Grateful Ornate Garden Card

I used the Stamparatus to help with this card.  Use the step feature I was able to stamp the large “So Grateful” all the way down my piece of card stock and keep it all perfectly lined up.  Then I added my small words in between each one.  I trimmed the Whisper White panel very close and then added it to the card front over a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.
