STAMP-A-THON

Out with the old and in with the new. I am having a Stamp-a-Thon, that means I will be providing the stamps only. You will need to bring all your own supplies including cardstock.
I will have 9 hostess sets from the 2009-2010 catalog. If a problem should arise with people not want to share sets I will have to place a time limit on each set. I don't see this happening, as we have never had this problem before.


The discontinued list will be out for Stampin' Up. You can place your order and do some stamping. As always you do not have to make a purchase to participate.

  1. Sets available
  2. Level 3- Kind and Caring Thoughts
  3. level 2 -Asian Artistry
  4. Wings of Friendship
  5. Christmas Punch
  6. Level 1- On Earth
  7. Holiday Best
  8. Love Bug
  9. Country Morning
  10. Out of the Box

If you didn't get a chance to earn these hostesss sets now is your time to stamp out the images.

  1. HINT:
  2. LOOK at the sets and sketch out some samples
  3. Think about the colors you will be using
  4. Have your card stock precut
  5. plan on punching and coloring at home to save time

I hope this will be a fun time for everyone to just order, stamp, talk, share ideas, etc. This is the first time I have had one of these in 4 years.

Mixed cards/ 3 male, and 3 female

· May 8, 2010 (Saturday)
· 1 to 5
· $20.00 cash
· RSVP by May 5th, 6 p.m. to adnotsinkpad@yahoo.com
· Any questions contact me

We will be doing mixed cards. There will be 3 masculine P.J. get well cards with a soup container, and 3 feminine hat lady cards in peach and brown colors (will have a mixed set, so you can pick your greeting, ex: birthday, thank you, just a note, friend) with a purse. We will make a total of 6 cards and 2 containers. You can make these basic if you are a beginner or extreme if you have the tools and talents. This is one for all skill levels, so don’t be scared, if you have been wanting to get started or learn a couple of new techniques this one is for you. We will be doing the gamasol and prisma pencils (if you have them, bring them), if you don’t have them you can just color the images and still have nice cards. We will also do the new and greatest rage, scrunched flowers. They look yummy on projects. We will be using these flowers on three cards and on the purse container. We will also be using the nestabilities and dry embossing with the cuttlebug for elegant backgrounds. Paper piercing will be done around the mats for a nice eyelet look.


SUPPLIES YOU NEED TO BRING: (**optional supplies needed for extreme cards not for beginners cards)
· Brown ink pad (staz on or versa fine)
· Red liner tape or ultimate water based super glue
· Double sided tape/glue stick
· Scissors and/or paper trimmer

· **for $5.00 extra I will supply additional card stock to make equal containers and cards

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hello:
I hope your Christmas season is moving slower than mine. I feel like I am scrambling like a chicken without a head. Cody will be in Wednesday. Jake on Saturday. I didn't get my Christmas cards made, and haven't had much time for stamping. When I said in September I would be busy for awhile I never dreamed it would get this crazy for this long.

Stampin' Up is having celebrations again next year. It will run the month of January and February. (That is the time when you purchase $50.00 excludes tax and shipping, you get to pick a free set from the celebrations catalog...this year they are also offering a number of sets from the big catalog as celebrations sets.) I should have the mini catalogs and the celebration catalogs at the end of December. I do plan to stamp again ladies, I promise! Hopefully, we can get together 1st part of January and catch up on everything that happened in all our lives in the past 5 months.

I will plan on turning in orders on the 15th of January and 15th of February. Anyone interested in a catalog or ordering please contact me by phone or email.

If you have changed your email address remember to subscribe to the blog with the new email. I can't do this for you, and several of you have sent me new email addresses.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
Stampingly,
Tonda
