January Projects

For this month's stamp classes, I focused on some "manly" cards.  So often, they are the hardest for me to come up with.  When I first laid eyes on the Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up!, the Going Global stamp set was one of the first items to go on my must-have list.  The same was true for the Sale-a-bration Brochure, I loved the Sky Is the Limit stamp set (it's limited availability too).  So it's no wonder that those two stamp sets would be the ones I'd focus on this month.

Here is the first of the projects made at stamp classes/clubs this month:

The idea for this card came from the fabulous Patty Bennet.  She's provided a video tutorial that explains this technique so well, that to add to it seems redundant.  When I saw this card, I immediately thought of how to make it using the Going Global stamp set and using the Going Places Designer Series paper stack.

It's a fun fold, and it fits into a standard card-size envelope too!  Win, win.

Check back tomorrow for more projects.
Happy stamping!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I'm always amazed at how quickly the time goes flying by.  Thanks to each and every one of you who follow my blog, and for those who have been faithful customers (some for almost 14 years)!

After taking much of the month of December off from stamping, I spent a little time today stamping with a few of my new "toys" from the 2016 Occasions Catalog.  Everyone can order them on January 5th.
