Hello and Happy Monday! I have just returned home from a Stampin’ Retreat in Texas that not only was a ton of fun…I was super productive in making cards (which we all know is a great feeling!!!) Even though it is so hard to gauge what to bring – I really accomplished a bunch!
It was so relaxing and super fun as my sweet friend Ramsey joined me for this adventure. I know that it sound crazy to go all the way to Texas but I am blessed to have many stampin’ friends there and it is always a treat to be with them. We stamped…we shared ideas…we laughed….it was just good old fashion fun!
I have a cutie for you today and I think the minute you see it you will agree…it is mine kinda card, super clean & simple….just like I like them! Because there is no stamping on this card I am going to offer some “mini kits” that you can purchase from me to make this card & envelope yourself at home! I will provide you all of the elements for the card and then you can have fun putting it together.
SOLD OUT!!! 🙁
Don’t Wait….I only have 14 of these kits made up!
The paper that I used for this sample is from the retired Gala Gingham collection – but you can easily visualize that there are many different papers that you can use to go with the Halloween Theme! This paper is in the Highland Heather but you can easily see how FUN it is when the Gorgeous Grape Sentiment….playing and off setting colors within the same color family are always winners!
The fabulous and oh so fun sentiment of “WICKED” is from the holiday catalog. It is part of the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle or you can buy just the Die Cut Word itself. At the retreat I had many people comment that they did not think it was a Stampin’ Up! Word Die…..but YEP…it is and it is in the Holiday Catalog on page 55.
HANDS DOWN…this is the best single word die that Stampin’ Up! has ever had. WHY??? Easy = it is BIG and BOLD….which in my eyes makes a statement! I truly am hoping that they will continue to come out with more offerings like this as it makes my stampin’ heart pitter patter!
I am a happy and fun gal when it comes to Halloween cards….I love to send treats and making a sweet card instead of scary makes me roll! Now if the weather will start to change a bit as it is still so stinkin’ hot…treats will melt but we all know it will change soon.
The dsp is just 1” X 5 ½” and then I added a wee bit stripe of contrast cardstock to make a POP happen! What is the star element that makes this card fun is the layers and the word “Wicked” as well as the layers of the spider….I stacked 3 layers together!
If you do not do this, I suggest you give it a whirl. Layering elements makes such a difference and honestly it does not take that much more time! These are the little things that I like to do to add that special touch to make a simple card go from a sweet card to a WOW – “that is a GREAT CARD” as the extra details make it!
If you would like to purchase one of these mini kits….they are $4.00 each and you will have all of the goodies in the bag for you to cut and adhere together to make this super sweet card and envelope! I only have a limited amount of this paper so HIT THIS AND RESERVE YOURS TODAY….I will ship them out on this Saturday September 28th!
SORRY…they SOLD OUT!
Please put in the subject line WICKED CARD so I can spot it and I will respond back to you. I only have 14 of them so it is first come….first serve! I know that many of you do not send out a bunch of Halloween Cards and I thought….why not offer this! I will charge $2.00 for shipping and handling….( if you buy more than 1 I will weight it and figure out the shipping)
While I was in Texas I was able to see many of my stampin’ friends that use to purchase my kits…and yep, the question is asked….are you going to be doing more kits….we miss them! Hmmmmm….time will tell but how about this offering as a baby step in the right direction!
As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I am not allowed to stamp any part of a kit so this is why I thought this car would be perfect. You can have a taste of putting together a super clean and simple card and be able to see for yourself the impact there is with layering dies together. Have a great afternoon and let’s all have a super week!
