Spirited Snowmen Stamp Camp To Go

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing my new Stamp Camp To Go, featuring a fun stamp set from the Holiday catalog called Spirited Snowmen.  The set features three adorable snowmen images and so my Stamp Camp To Go makes three adorable projects! 
This kit makes 2 cards and a fun pull-up hot cocoa packet.

This Stamp Camp To Go is available in a few different ways.

Kit and PDF FREE with a $50 purchase. Purchase the Stamp set and some colors you may not have, such as Granny Apple Green, Pool Party or Poppy Parade. (Does not have to include the spirited Snowmen stamp set in case you already have it.)   Host Code for September is  QUJBFJAY contact me if you are not familiar with how to use it.

The PDF is available for $5.00.  The PDF is a set of directions for all three projects in PDF form with color photos and measurements.  This is a great option for demonstrators or people who belong to other groups or clubs where they have purchase commitments.

Purchase the PDF and pre-cut paper supplies for $12.00 shipped to you via mail. Each additional kit $5.00 (this means extra card kits but not an extra PDF so you can make 2 of each card or 3 or more). You would need your own stamp set, ink and adhesives.

Purchase the Stamp set, PDF, and pre-cut kit for $30.00 clear mount, $38.00 wood mount.

I used Stampin' Blends to color in my images. Other great options are Stampin' Write Markers, Watercolor Pencils, or ink and blender pen.   Colors used are Poppy Parade, Soft Sky, Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie (nose) Smokey Slate, Night of Navy, Soft Suede, and Basic Black.

 Take a look at my other Stamp Camp To Go kits to see what else is available.  If it is still pictured, I still have it :)  Click the Tab under my Blog Header, I will combine shipping where possible.

Artfully Folded and How to make a paper crane

 Hi Everyone!  Today I made this fun card for a dear lady who is having a bad month health wise.  Her name is Margarete and she was my Sunday School Teacher 40 years ago when I was 8, and she once taught my sister and I how to make these paper cranes.  I think it was supposed to be a dove from the story of John the Baptiste, or something along those lines.  She would also make them when the grown ups were having a meeting and she would keep the kids entertained with these and homemade play-dough and all sorts of things.  She is a crafter! She sews and crochets and the whole nine yards, but she doesn't stamp that I know of.   Every so often she helps me out now when I am doing some kid crafty thing at church and she will ask me if I remember when she taught me one thing or another.  She almost always mentions the cranes, and she love to tell the kids in the class that she was my teacher when I was their age.   I wanted to make her a card to say that I was thinking about her an wishing her well and I was looking at some of my stamp sets and trying to think which to use, maybe Healing Hugs or Dandelion Wishes, but then I saw this and I just knew I had to use it.  This says Miss Margarete.

Here is the inside.  Isn't that fun?  I made a mini paper crane to hang in the circle cut out. It folds flat nicely and so it will be easy to mail!
I know she will be tickled when she gets it.

I made a how to video for the card as well as the paper crane.

 The Artfully Folded stamp set is a host set, which means it can't just be bought outright, it needs to be earned with a $150 order. But maybe that is not in the cards for you, you might like to spread your purchases out a bit I get that. So, I share my host rewards with you thought my Frequent Buyer Rewards program.  Earn points over time and then choose this, or another set, with your rewards.  You can learn about the program by clicking the tab under my blog header.
I am writing up some written instructions and I will add them here when I get them completed.

 Bonus days only have a few more days to go! Earn a $5 coupon for every $50 you spend in August, use the coupons in September!
Watercolor Pencil assortment 2 only available until August 31st, then you would have to wait until next year! Yikes! These colors are gorgeous for fall, get them while you can! item number 149014  $12.50 for the set.

Hand Delivered Stamp Set

 Hi Everyone.  Have you noticed the really awesome Host sets that are out in the Annual Catalog right now.  Sometimes they get overlooked because they are towards the back of the catalog.  I am just loving several of them this year. I normally don't highlight them for some reason, maybe because I worry that people will think they could never get one because they don't want to Host a workshop. But, did you know I share my host rewards with my customers?  Well I do! I have a frequent buyer rewards program for my online customers and a punch card for my in person customers.  You can use those rewards for free stamps or free classes, and that includes the Host sets!  This set is called Hand Delivered and I think it is super fun.  There are a pair of legs, and then you add various things that she could be carrying, such as a big cake, a sign, a stack of books or a bunch of balloons!

I used this stamp set at a recent class on how to use the Stampin' Blends.   I just love coloring in all forms, and the Stampin' Blends are a great coloring option.  The markers go on smoothly and they come in our gorgeous colors.  There will be even more color options in the upcoming Holiday Catalog, so be sure to look for them!

This stamp set looks great in the Stampin' Blends, and it looks great with Watercolor Pencils, Aqua Painters and Ink, markers, Blender Pens...
But, to highlight why the Stampin' Blends are so great, I did this side by side comparison for my Blends class.  Look closely at the balloons. The one on the right has dark and light areas and no stroke lines. 
I made a video for this card so you can see the coloring first hand.

Here are a few more cards from the set.

This one is for a Teacher, I just love that big pile of books.  It would also be cute for a graduation or a back to school scrapbook page. 

The cake is cute too and can be dressed up for a wedding too!

Don't forget that right now we have Bonus Days going on!! During Bonus Days you get a $5 coupon for every $50 you spend.  Use the coupons in September, just in time for the Holiday Catalog! 

One thing you might want to consider getting in August is the new Watercolor Assortment 2!  It is here as part of a limited time special but wont be back again until after the new year!! The new colors are a GREAT compliment to the first assortment and a must have in my opinion :)
Click here to see this collection. 
$12.50 for a set of 10 pencils! included my new favorite green, Granny Apple Green! As well as Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape, Balmy Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Garden Green, Coastal Cabana, and Flirty Flamingo.

Another limited time  product is the Blended Season Bundle.  This bundle is awesome for the dies alone! But the stamp set is great! I love the leave stamp so much! Click here to see this special.

Look at the leaves! Love! and the Framelits! there are 3 sizes!

Beth's Paper Cuts promo this month is Buy an Ink Pad and get a refill for $1.  This is a Beth special and not a Stampin' Up! special, so we would have to do the order through me, so I can enter it in and take off the amount for the refills, and you can pay me with card or PayPal, or you can order online if you like, and I can reimburse the difference. Contact me with any questions on the ink pad promo.
