The Christmas Card That Wasn't

I’m baaaack! After a number of weeks of hiatus I think (after this week) life will be getting a little back to normal. The Diekevers family is finally on the mend and life after the holiday illnesses and septic problems is finally getting back to normal (if there is such a thing as normal).
To the left here is a look at one of my Christmas cards that wasn’t. This card was created using the Sleigh Bells Ring stamp set – which you won’t see in the current catalog right now, but is still available. It has just been put on the dormant list. I also used the Baroque background stamp and Baroque motifs. I highlighted some of the snow scene using stickles and brushed the edges of the scalloped punched scene (marvy giga scallop circle punch) with a sponge using basic black ink. I thought at first this was a little busy, but my mom actually liked this one. Too bad I didn’t get any out to anyone huh?

Now that things are feeling somewhat normal again, I am now putting together classes! I know a lot of you have been waiting for one so, here goes!

Next class is Friday, February 1 at 7:00 pm.!

Spotlight on Spotlighting Stamp Class
Friday, February 1
Time: 7:00pm-10:00pm
Where: Laura’s House (call if you need directions)
Cost: $5 or free with a $30 or more order

Kim and I will be showing you a cool stamping technique called spotlighting! We will make 4 (maybe 5) cards using this technique. Feel free to bring a snack to share and a drink for yourself.

You will begin noticing a change in the classes I will be offering. I will be offering more classes showcasing certain techniques. Classes featuring techniques will cost only between $5 and $10 or free with an order of $30 or more. As will all other classes in the past, registration is kindly requested as space is limited. I will be doing many of these classes with fellow demonstrator, Kim. I hope you will find these classes intriguing!

A little idea to keep in mind – if you attend my class next Friday, February 1 and spend $50 you will not only get the class for free, but you will also get to choose a free stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog! If you spend $100 you’ll get to pick 2 free Sale-A-Bration sets and so on……

Even better – if you host a workshop in your home (or mine) you will be eligible to earn even more FREE Sale-A-Bration sets. With every $300 your workshop reaches, you will be able to receive a free stamp set. If you happen to spend $50 of your own – it will go towards your workshop and you’ll earn even more. That’s not including all the other free hostess dollars and stamp sets you’ll already be earning based on the benefits in the catalog!

As I hinted to you above, I am now offering workshops here in my home. If you would like to host a workshop for your friends but don’t want to have to worry about cleaning your house, mine is now open for business. You can choose the format of your workshop too! If you would like to just focus on one technique, we can do that. If you want to bypass all the catalog information, we can do that. I’ll also be offering fast & fun workshops where the demonstration takes 20 minutes or less. I’m going to let you choose how you want your workshop to go.

Right now
You can earn a FREE stamp set from the Spring/Summer Preview Brochure by hosting a $350 or more workshop! This offer is good until January 31! I still have dates left and it is really easy to put one together quickly. If you would like to earn a free set from the Spirng/Summer Preview Brochure let me know and we can get going today!

Have a super weekend everyone! Registration for the Spotlight on Spotlight class begins….

I absolutely love your card! How did you ever come up with such a beautiful card & in the sepia tone, it's wonderful!
I got so excited to comment that I forgot to see if you mentioned the cardstock & ink pad color. Also did you use the brad from the Hodge Podge set?
Look at it this way, you have them done for this year!
I'm going to have to check out my stash to see if I have this stamp set. You used it so eloquently!
Happy Stampin',
Ann from Illinois :)
