Hello Stamping Friends,
How's your first week of summer going? Have any great plans for vacation this summer? Our summer is going to be jammed packed with family visiting, trips to the beach, and fun little day trips from time to time. We have already went strawberry picking (I love that summer past time), saw Finding Dory (which was adorable), and last night I took my dad to see Dolly Parton (his Father's Day gift), so I would say the summer here is starting off nicely.
Don't forget there's always time for stamping too. I have classes mixed in with all of our personal family fun or you can host your own. My next class is a week today, Stamp a Stash. You make 12 cards for $20. If you want to attend just let me know. It's always a great time. Or better yet, you can become a part of this great family that I have been a part of for the past 15 years. If you love the great products Stampin' Up! offers, you can get a discount on all your supplies, or you can get some extra money towards a car payment, kids extras (piano lessons, soccer, camp, etc). Why don't you at least try it? There's nothing to lose, just a whole lot to gain. When I joined 15 years ago, I just wanted the discounted. Now, I love my little business and teaching others all about stamping while making some extra money for my family. There is a special deal going on right now (until June 30th), you get to select $125 in product AND 2 extra stamp sets of any value for JUST $99 plus free shipping. You can select over $200 worth of product for just $99. There's no risks, no commitment if you feel it's just not for you after all. It's a great deal and I would love for you to be able to take part of it.
This card is a fun card to make, especially if you want a unique fold without too much effort. It's a z-fold card. You start with a half sheet of cardstock (4 1/4" x 11") and fold it in half. Then you take the front edge and fold it back to the crease. See, that's it, super easy, right? Then you select some coordinating paper, your stamp images and ink and have fun making it extra special.
I will note that the designer series paper and the washi tape are no longer available but I still wanted to show you this fun card. You can easily swap them out for current product too.
Here's a different angle for you to see it better. Tip: on the front piece that you stamp, only put adhesive on the left side of the paper. If not, you will be adhering the card closed and you don't want that to happen.
The dinosaurs are a great set for little boys, but think about it, wouldn't it be a good card to give someone "older" that is celebrating a huge milestone birthday. You know, kind of like they are as old as a dinosaur? Guess you would have to be give it to someone with a great sense of humor.
As always, thanks for stopping by and make it a great stamp day.
