You Missed It! I had a crack o’ dawn timeslot, lol.

I already demonstrated this hand stamped greeting card at the crack o’ dawn this morning, well, the crack for a Saturday morning anyway, at 8:30am my time.

fully lined card inside for lots of writing room…

I added some layers in real time during the presentation including crumpling the bumblebee mat, inking all the cardstock edges with Crushed Curry ink using a sponge wedge and coloring the open weave ribbon with the inked sponge too. You will need to watch the video to see the upgrades. Ask to join the Facebook group to see the video and you will be rewarded with 16 other demonstrations too!

Fancy Corner Card Kits in the Mail on sale now!

My next Kits in the Mail card design is a fun one! Who am I kidding, they are all fun!;) It’s a somewhat interactive card. So share it with a person that would enjoy figuring out how it displays. It’s called a Fancy Corner Card that folds twice, then around and flaps down for a pleated look.

I designed 2 completely different styles that showcase our fun products. The first card features springtime flowers and colors with a secret space for a personal message.

The second card has an open barnyard look with the assistance from our NEW Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and Birthday Chick dies. Of course, one card features purple, yay for purple chicks! If you really like the chick images, you are certainly welcome to add a stamped chick to the floral card instead of the stamped flower.

Supplies are included in the kit as shown below. No hand stamped images will be included in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy. Please note there may be substitutions as I run through my stock.

Kits are available for immediate shipping. Cost is $10 via PayPal. Order by clicking below and paying with your preferred method. Kits will be sent to the shipping address listed in your PayPal invoice. Please let me know when you pay your invoice if the shipping address needs to be changed. I suggest ordering your kit while you are reading this so you have your kits in time to craft along with me! Then join me during the One of a Kind Facebook Live event on March 20th to assemble your kit. I’ll post an assembly video to my Youtube channel as well after March 20th.
