Sapphire Stampers Club Nov 17th (Judy Mae H. is hostess)

 I have so many Judy's in my clubs this year!  
There are 3 all together.  
I have never known so many Judy's.
Judy Mae made a tasty soup (can not spell the name of the soup). But, it was a cabbage and potato cream soup.  She also made Irish Soda bread to eat with it.  For dessert, she brought a carrot cake.  Thanks Judy Mae!

Now for pictures of the projects.
This card uses the festive trees set and the "On Point" embossing folder.
The colors are garden green and cherry cobbler along with Baked Brown Sugar.
Lot's of layers on this card.
 This card was a new technique for the evening.
One of the techniques was to use the "Stampamajig" to line up the ornament and the hook.
The colors of paper are VV, cherry cobbler and the under the tree specialty DSP.
We used the Ornamental Pine stamp set using Always Artichoke, Soft Suede and Cherry cobbler inks.
To give it the glittery effect, we covered the stamped image piece of paper with versa mark and then used the iridescent ice embossing powder.
The silver ribbon and "All is Calm" snowflake embellishment gave it a little more bling!
Fun card to make.
 The little wreath tea light below was made using the wonderous wreath set.
We stamped 3 wreaths and used some of the Trim the tree paperstack paper to wrap around the electric tea light.  The bow is made with the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon.
So cute!  I found this on another website and couldn't resist making them.
You had to "futz" with the bow a bit, but they turned out cute!
The card below also uses garden green and cherry cobbler.
The stamp comes from the "Mingle all the Way" set
There are  2 types of DSP.  "Under the tree" (herringbone pattern) and "Trim the tree" (plaid piece) paper stack.
The ribbon is the cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon.  We had to do a little fussy cutting for the Cheer.

Bitterroot Stampers Club (Season 4) Nov 13th (Jackie C. is hostess)

Jackie made a delicious corn chowder soup with bread for dinner.  Yum!
We also had pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting and we washed it all down with Almond Joys!
Fun Christmas projects for this class.  
I'm going to post the pictures of the projects when I post about the 2nd club (Sapphire Stampers)

New stamp club this year. Club 2 Nov 4 (Hostess- Shari K.)

I have 2 stamp clubs this season.
Our first meeting for the new club was Nov 4, 2014
We started with a review of how the club will work and then picked calendar dates for the rest of the year.  We also drew names to see when everyone would be hostess.  It was decided that all the clubs would start at 1630.

Here are the Club dates:

November 17th- Hostess, Judy Haraseth
January 20th- Hostess, Judy Heintz
February 17th- Hostess, Sydney K.
March 26th- Hostess, Kathy P.
April ?- Hostess, Linda B.

We will be meeting twice this month since I had to postpone their first meeting because I had bronchitis.
We will also skip December since everyone is so busy.
They are still deciding if they want to have the hostess bring a light meal or a treat.

Christmas Card Class

Hello, It's time for my Christmas Card class!  
I have 4 different designs this year.  
I work my Christmas Card classes a little different than most of my workshops. 
So let me explain:
  • First off you don't have to feel obligated to purchase anything from the catalog (but I would be happy to put an order in for you anytime!)
  • You only pay for the cards you make.  
    • $2.00 each.
  • Look at the designs below and pick the one(s) you want to make and decide how many of each and let me know by Nov. 12th. (I need time to make all the kits for everyone)
  • Decide which of the 2 days you want to come make them (let me know this part too)
    • Saturday Nov 15th at 4:00 pm
    • Sunday Nov 16th at 1:00 pm
  • Go home with your Christmas Cards ready to address and send (envelopes are included)!
 #1- Silver Snowflake
(just a heads up-this card is a little more advanced and takes more time)
You may have noticed that one has a bow and one has Washi tape (that is to make it easier to mail)
 #2- Trees
 #3-Merry Christmas
#4- Gold Stars
