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……

This month we have an early release from our upcoming Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  It is the Ornate Garden Suite and it is full of beautiful products.  Two stamp set and die bundles, a specialty designer series paper, an embossing folder, a ribbon combo pack and some shiny gilded gems.  Today’s card is one I shared last week on my Facebook live.  You can watch my FB Live from April 13th to see how I made this card a a couple of others –

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.

Ornate Garden ToGo Class

Hello my friends!  I hope that you are well.  My family is all good right now.  But as you all know I can’t hold in person classes so I’m trying out ToGo classes.  I may need to come up with a different name but that is what I’m going with right now.  And for April I have a class using the brand new Ornate Garden Suite!  It’s a beautiful suite of products that is an early release from our upcoming Stampin’ Up! catalog.  The new catalog starts in June but these products are available now.  

I’ve designed the cards so that you could easily use another stamp set in your collection but I’ll provide a list of items you will need to complete the cards exactly as I did. See below for the additional supplies you will need to complete the cards exactly as I did.

Kits will includes supplies to make the 6 cards (2 each of 3 designs), along with the tutorial and a video.  I’m also planning a surprise bonus project. All the cut card stock, paper, envelopes, ribbon, gems and die cut, embossed and punched pieces will be included. You will need to stamp, color and assemble.

Porch Pickup Class Kit option $15 (if you are local to me)

To-go Class – Garden Animals Punch Art

I am going to try something new beginning with my last Hands-On class that was held this past Friday – Garden Animals Punch Art.

To-Go Class version is $20 and includes shipping to your home and pre-punching and die-cutting of most pieces.

What will be included?  all card stock cut for projects, most of the pieces are pre-punched and die-cut, instructions with photos on how to create all 6 cards and the box, ribbon, brads, buttons, and envelopes.  Shipping to your home.

What will not be included? To-Go class does not include stamps, ink, markers, pre-stamped images, adhesive or tools.

  The instructions include a complete list of supplies that I used to create this project.  You won’t need them all since I pre-punched what I could and die-cut pieces for you.  You will need a few of the punches to complete some of the unique pieces.

For punch art the 2-way glue pen and fine tipped craft tweezers are very helpful.

If you are interested in the To-Go version of this class please email me  – CLICK HERE. This class is no longer available.

I will evaluate each class to determine if a To-Go version makes sense and I’ll post the information at that time.  This should be a great option for those that don’t live near enough to me to take the class at my home or have a conflict with the class day/time. I hope this provides you with some more options.  Have a great day!
