The VIP Card Club has taken the summer off, but we resume in August with fresh techniques! First up is practice with the new Embossing Paste, Palette Knives, and Pattern Party Decorative Masks! Check out this video to see it in action!
We'll be making three cards, using paste in three different ways: adding glitter, sponging dried paste, and adding ink refill to dye the paste. Here are the cards we'll be making:
Interested in learning new techniques? There is still space for 1-2 more members! Here are all the details!
The Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set is this year's Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set.
For every stamp set sold this year, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to RMHC.
I love how this set adds on to the Jar of Love stamp set. So many possibilities!
The Ribbon of Courage bundle was designed by Million Dollar Achiever, Patty Bennett. I love how easy it is to create a card for a specific cause. The ones I made here are for breast cancer, autism, and military support. The one for breast cancer we'll be making at my card class in July. The one in the middle I made using a puzzle stamp bought on scrapbook.com. And the one on the right combined the use of the You Move Me stamp set. All three use the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. At the class in July, I'll have a Ribbon Awareness Guide printed out for everyone to take home to create more cards for various causes. Prayers, love, and hugs for those dealing with cancer, autism, and military sacrifice!
The new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is here and I just placed my biggest order ever!
As posted earlier, here is my list of top 5 favorites (at the moment), but you know this all can change when my order arrives!
1. Planner Kit
If you love this as much as I do, you'll want to come to the Pretty Planner class on Saturday, July 29.
You'll get this kit, plus we'll have markers, stamps and punches available at the class to decorate your planner, as well as a list of upcoming holidays!
2. Coffee Cafe Bundle
We'll be using this Coffee Cafe bundle in September, when the weather gets cooler! And this video didn't even mention the adorable paper that goes with it!
3. Three new 3d Embossing Folders
Check out p. 211 to see all three: Layered Leaves, Ruffled, and Pinewood Planks. And if you use a spritzer, you really do see a deeper emboss!
4. Embossing Paste
We'll be using embossing paste on August 13th, the first class of the new VIP Card Club. There are two spots left, if you want to join!
5. Mini Dimensionals

The prompt for the last day was New Beginnings. I used the new Crafting Forever stamp set coming out June 1st. I LOVE this set, plus the use of the new 2017-2019 in colors and clear faceted gems. I can't wait to make this card in my June Card Class on 6/18! So excited for new beginnings!
I am trying something new! During April and May, if you place and order on my website and use the following host code at checkout, I will mail you some Designer Series Paper in the mail, cut to size for you to use as backgrounds on your cards! New code will be posted May 1st!
