March Keep It Simple Cards

I'm definitely thinking spring as I type about my March Keep It Simple card class.  It's snowing right now, but there is promise of warmer weather later this week.  While my cards aren't overly springy, it certainly was on my mind as I was creating!

Thanks to some talented demos, I CASED each of these and made slight changes to all of them.  For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it means Copy And Share with Everyone.  So you never need to let a creative slump keep you from stamping a beautiful card.  Thanks to Fran Sabad for the tennis shoes, Katherine Anderson for the Celebrate You, Windy Ellard for the bird's nest and Amanda Bates for the mountain scene.

Email me if you'd like to join us to make these 4 cards Thursday night!

This month's hostess code is ZY9D76K6.  Please use this when placing an order to receive a small thank you gift from me.  If you are ordering more than $150, you'll want to keep the hostess benefits for yourself, so please don't enter the code. Be sure to click "yes" for contact so I can send you a small thank you gift! To Order Stampin' Up! Products On-Line 24/7, CLICK HERE!

Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes

I think one of the reasons I have fun designing for my Keep It Simple Card Class is that everyone only makes one card of each design.  There is never any worry about running out of DSP or accessories.  I can design freely knowing I have what I need for several people to make one card each.  It's an early night too because usually the cards are pretty quick to put together.  This month we still used the Big Shot several times and worked in the Rock and Roll Technique, but when just making one card of each, it goes quickly. 

This card used the Tutti Frutti Cards and Envelopes from the Sale-a-Bration brochure and the Picnic With You stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

Party Pandas Birthday Card

Who wouldn't like getting this cute Party Panda in the mail?  I've combined it with Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper for this cheerful little greeting.  Both of these products are Sale-a-bration items available for you to choose when you spend $50 or more.

Heartfelt Blooms Sympathy

This beautiful Heartfelt Blooms stamp set is one of the choices you could make from the Sale-a-bration catalog when you spend $50.  It's such a beautiful set and can create a quick card.  With three stamps of the flower and one of the words, the card is done.  I think we all are guilty of trying to make a card "just right" sometimes, when all we need to do is put the ink to the paper and put it in the mail.

Singing Reindeer Punch Art

Over the years, there have been different versions of this carol singing reindeer out there, but I have never made one.  As different tools come and go, the reindeer change their looks just a bit, but that's the great thing about crafting... you can always come up with something.  Thanks to fellow demo Linda Parker for some inspiration.  

The Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper makes a perfect background with my Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Whisper White reindeer.  And here are some of the other tools I used!

If you'd like to make your own, you can order anytime through my online store, but you can take advantage of our Cyber Monday free shipping on Monday only.  Better yet -- come to my weekend stamp-a-stacks and make some with my pre-cut materials!

Quick and Cute Christmas Cards

Here's a closer look at all of the cards we'll be making on Thursday.  If you are local and want to join us, let me know!  Class fee is $10 or free with a $20 order!

Santa's Suit:  To keep it simple, I just stamped directly onto the Whisper White cardstock with all of  Santa's suit parts.  But if you wanted to step it up, all of those pieces have coordinating Santa Builder Framelits.  I couldn't help myself with Santa in his long johns though and had to pop him up on a Stampin' Dimensional.    I borrowed the long words from Hearts Come Home.  

Snowflake Sentiments:  You can't get much simpler than this card.  I did use the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies to cut 3 snowflakes, but start to finish, this is a quick one. Again I borrowed the words from another set.  Add a Little Glitz had one of my favorite sentiments this season!

Smitten Mittens:  I've used Smitten Mittens many times this season, but oddly enough, I am just now breaking out my Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I love the simplicity of that single snowflake.  I did run it through my Big Shot with a shim to give it a little more definition.  I borrowed the Merry Christmas from Hang Your Stocking.  

Smitten Mitten Penguin:  Yep, that's right.  This penguin was made with the Many Mittens Framelits Dies!  The two black mittens are layered on top of each other but are pulled slightly apart.  Then you add another white mitten with the thumb cut off on top.  The holly came from Christmas Stockings Thinlits, and I just added a square of Basic Black and punch from the Classic Label punch.   I did use a retired flower punch for his feet.  Then of course what's a penguin without snow?  The snowflakes are from Colorful Seasons and I added Shimmery White cardstock for snow.
