January 2021 Incentive Cards

Fine Art Floral Pretty Peacock Card

Original by Sharon Hashimoto Burkert

This is a very easy card and I think it’s beautiful.  It’s made using my favorite suite in the catalog—the Fine Art Floral suite.

I used the new Blending Brushes to add a little Pretty Peacock ink to the embossed Pool Party card stock.  They’re very fun to use and I love the way they work.  After I finished,  I just rinsed it out with water.

Attach the Pool Party piece to the card base.

Wrap the 10” piece of Pool Party sheer ribbon around the Pretty Peacock and designer paper layer and tie a knot.  Add that layer to the Pool Party layer using dimensionals.

Stamp your greeting using Pretty Peacock ink and sponge the edges.  Adhere the two pieces together and then attach to card using dimensionals.

Add diamonds which have been colored with the Lt or Dk Pretty Peacock Blend.

Supplies used include:

Art Gallery bundle or suite, m 32-34
Blossoms in Bloom, 51
Pretty Peacock card stock, 143
White card stock, #159276, $9.75 (new white card stock)
Pool Party card stock, 143

Double Oval punch, m 65

Just Want to Say Card

 

Assemble the first three layers.

Lay the words on to the circle to see where you want to place them.  (I attached my words with glue and then I thought they looked a little flat so I cut out another set and attached them to the first ones by cutting little slices of mini glue dots.)  I think they’ll look great if you attach yours with glue dots.

Attach the circle to the designer paper layer.  I didn’t use dimensionals, but they would look great.

Attach the pearls which have been colored with the Dk Night of Navy Blends.

Supplies used include:

Fine Art bundle or suite, m 32-34
Pretty Parasol stamp set, (greeting), 44

Pearls, 156
Dk Night of Navy Blend, 142

 

Dragonfly Hello Card

 

Original by Paula Vincent

This one is very easy.

Attach the small Misty Moonlight (dry embossed piece) to the card base as shown.

Then add the designer paper layer.

Add the greeting using dimensionals.

Add the punched out dragonflies.  They were punched out from the designer paper.  You could put dimensionals under the dragonflies to add depth.  Add Wink of Stella to the dragonflies.

Supplies used include:

Dragonfly bundle or suite, m 24-27
Forever Fern, 110
Misty Moonlight card stock, 143
Dandy Garden designer paper, m 25
White card stock, #159276, $9.75 (new white card stock)

Dragonfly Thinking of You

 

Original by Susan Fields

Attach the designer series paper to the Basic Black card stock piece and attach that to the card base.

Attach the Mossy Meadow and the greeting piece to each other as shown.

Put a few dimensionals on the back and drape the trim back and forth as shown.  You’ll probably need to add a few more dimensionals to attach it to the card.

Attach the dragonfly.

Supplies used include:

Christmas 2018 vs Christmas 2020

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I want to show you how our Christmas celebration was this year (with the Covid restrictions) compared to two years ago in 2018.

Christmas 2018

Christmas Package Exchange 2020 in Jim’s Shop

Christmas Zoom Meeting 2020 with All Our Families

There’s quite a difference, but this one was still so good.  Technology has certainly helped us during these trying times.  Please enjoy our Christmas pictures.

I’d love to hear or see how you celebrated this year.  It will be interesting to look back at.

I woke up this morning thinking I need to get back to stamping and my business.  Please remember that Sale-a-Bration starts on January 5th and runs through February.  You may recall that you earn a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with each $50 you spend before tax and shipping.  If you haven’t received your copy of the January-June mini catalog or the SAB brochure, please let me know and I’ll send a set off to you. Call or text 303-888-1862.  I’d love to be your demonstrator.

Many hugs, Pat

I know I just sent you a note a day or so ago, but I want to be sure that you take a last look at the August-December mini catalog.

I’m going to list my Favorite 10 items in this mini.  It’s a really good one.  When I set about to select my top 10, I pulled out 10 post it flags—well, I ran out of flags before I finished the catalog so I had to skinny up my list.

    1. Love of Leaves Bundle, 155195, p. 49, $47.50.
    2. Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Paper, 153527, p.57, $11.50.
    3. In the Pines Bundle, 155182, p. 43, $51.25.
    4. For Unto Us stamp set, 153335, p.35, $21.
    5. Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder, 153576, p. 35, $10.
    6. Merry Moose Bundle, 153015, p. 27, $31.50 – I think everybody needs this one.
    7. Dove of Hope Bundle, 155158, p. 13, $49.50.
    8. Life is Beautiful stamp set, 154871, p.51, $17.

    10. Cherish the Season Bundle, 155154, p. 33.

My favorite embellishments (which I had planned to list in my Favorite 10 list, but I love too many things) are All the Trimmings Embellishments, p. 25; Wonderful Gems, p. 31; and the Sequins for Every Occasions, p. 66—these come in a box with four compartments so they aren’t all mixed together.  I think they’re a real deal.

If you’d like to place an online order for these things, please click the Shop Now button and then the Shop Here button.  If your order is over $50 and you use my host code, I’ll send you a packet with 4 card kits in it.  My host code is:  FE2RQHN7 .

My “Tough Old Broad” Story

My “Tough Old Broad” Story

I am writing this post on Thanksgiving and among all the other great things I am thankful for is the fact that I am here to celebrate this wonderful day.

I’m sure that most of you remember that I was in a pretty bad UTV accident in August, 2019.

I was riding in the UTV with my sister-in-law and granddaughter, Molly.  We were just taking a leisurely ride around Jeff & Julie’s property—they had bought property and built a house there. By the way, a UTV is kind of like a Razor with a bench seat across.)

We were having a tour of their property when suddenly the UTV took off.  Molly “so thankfully” had put her seatbelt on and she was sitting in the middle.  I was thrown out and the UTV went into the ditch and rolled a couple of times.  Molly stayed in—thanks to her seatbelt—and Julie was thrown out after it rolled into the ditch.

I was the most seriously injured and was flown to UC Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.  I was in the ICU for a few days and then spent a few more days in the normal area of the hospital.  In total I had five surgeries.  Today I have almost no lingering accident issues.

When our sons-in-law saw that I was pretty tough to handle all of that without too much fuss, they began calling me a tough old broad in a very loving way.  I love it and them.

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving Day.  Unfortunately, our families had to celebrate the day in separate family gatherings due to the COVID issues.  We did a lot of texting and exchanging of photos.

Hopefully, Thanksgiving next year will be “normal”.

Hugs to each of you, Pat

November Incentive Card Recipes

Our last post gave you a sneak peek at the November incentive cards.  The following paragraph describes my incentive card program.

If you place an order which is $50+ in November and you place it online using the host code, I’ll send you a packet of four card kits.  The host code is:  MAZH44TY.

Peaceful Boughs Christmas Card

Original by Su Mohr

Everything is cut and embossed for you.

Start assembling by attaching the embossed white piece to the card base.

Bow Punch Cherry Cobbler Card

Inspired by Kelly Jo Daugherty

I love this card as it is so simple and so beautiful.

We cut 21” of ribbon for this card.  You’ll need to kind of lay it on the package to see where to cut it into two pieces.  The ribbon is just wrapped around the “package” and attached with scotch tape.

The bows are punched out for you.  Layer the red designer paper bow onto the white bow offsetting it a little bit.  Add the bow center using a dimensional and attach the bow to the card using dimensionals.

Stamp your greeting and attach to the card with dimensionals.

Add the red gems and you’re all finished.

Copper & White Tree Card

Original by Karen Hallam

Isn’t this card beautiful?

I didn’t list the page number for the ribbon as I think the one we used is retired; however, we did put ribbon in your card kit.

Attach the embossed copper foil to the white card stock as shown.  Then add the ribbon. The embossing was done using the Evergreen Forest embossing folder.

Stamp the greeting and place it on the card as shown.

Add the white tree, and then add a few dimensionals under the cut parts of the tree.  We used mini dimensionals and left the backing on some of the dimensionals.

Add both kinds of stars and you’re finished.
