Last weekend I held a Birthday Stamp a Stack class it was lots of fun and everyone left with a stack of birthday cards ready to mail out.
There were three card designs using the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack and the Balloon Adventures stamp set. Everyone made 4 of each of the cards. We embellished the cards with Bakers Twine, Linen Thread and Gold Glimmer paper.
I also showed everyone an idea for decorating the Gold Card Tin that you can get free during Sale-A-Bration. I included the die cuts and paper for them to use on their own tins.
Here is a suggested list of items you could order to complete this project and get the Tin for free.
- Balloon Adventures stamp set #142823 $26 (or get the bundle with the dies which is $53)
- Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack #142744 $10
- Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609 $18
- Card Tine #143833 FREE
Everyone at the class also received a little treat from me. Here is the whole ensemble showing just one of each card.

Every month I have a Card Maker’s Class in my classroom. It’s a flexible class for any level of stamper/card maker. Bring a friend along and have some fun.
Each class has a variety of card choices so you can make what you need – make yourself a list of upcoming birthdays, or celebrations and those that you need to send a thank you too.
You can RSVP through my website – www.monika.stampinup.net
or on my FB page – StampingatMonikas
For February I have had to move the Friday night class to Saturday morning. Normally it’s offered Friday morning and Friday night. I hope to see you there.
A quick little note card made with the stamps from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.
I added some supplies to create this little note card:
- Whisper White Note cards & Envelopes
- Whisper White card stock – a front layer and the heart
- Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies – to cut the circle
- Gold Thread – or use what is left from your kit
- Metallic Enamel Shapes – for the little gold heart
Use the stamps and ink from your kit. And you can also use dimensionals and glue dots from the kit – I had left overs.
I finished up my little treat boxes from the Paper Pumpkin kit and mailed them out to my boys today.
I did a tiny bit of altering – on the top flap of the box that gets folded over I trimmed away the back and sides so that it was just a top flap that folded over the arrow. I also put a piece of Tear and Tape on that flap to secure it down and then put the little gold heart sticker on the back. On one box I moved the arrow to the front and put it under my heart – that was for mailing purposes – when i was trying to get it in the little padded envelope I was using the arrow came poking out of it on the side when it was placed under the flap. It actually was cute under the heart going across the front too.
If you want the kit for February be sure to have an active account by tomorrow – Feb. 10th. That is the cut off date. And during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31) you can purchase a 3-month prepaid subscription for $55 (+ tax) and get a free Sale-A-Bration item too. The normal price is $59 – so you save a little bit. And this deal works for both new and current subscribers. Order today on my website.

Do you need a quick Valentine Treat idea?
I have one for you. I pulled out my 6×6 Sending Love Paper Stack and just cut the sheets in half to make these candy wraps.
Take the 3″ x 6″ piece of paper and adhere the two ends together. Tie a piece of twine around the top – I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine. And add a little tag.
Slide the candy inside – you can use glue dots to hold it in place. I put Reeses Peanut Butter hearts inside of mine. Very quick and you could make a whole stack for a class from the Sending Love Paper Stack. Enjoy!
A week or so ago I was unpacking an order that I had received from Stampin’ Up! I had ordered several packs of Card Stock that I was running low on. I pulled them all out and stacked them up and carried them to my craft room. As I was walking I fanned them out and thought – hmm that looks like a nice color combo. I posted a quick photo on Facebook to see what others thought and it received a bunch of likes. The colors were:
- Real Red
- So Saffron
- Pool Party
- Whisper White
After that I thought I better create an idea with that color combo so I made this for my Card Class last week. Yet again – quick and simple and I love it.
Here are the supplies that I used:
- Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base
- Strips of Real Red, So Saffron, and Pool Party card stock and I stamped each one with stars from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set
- Whisper White Baker’s Twine
- Piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with Stylized Birthday stamp
- Enamel Shapes – Brights & Subtles collections
So what do you think – do you like the color combo?

Last Friday was my monthly Card Maker’s Class. I try to offer a variety of card choices at this class each month so that everyone can make the cards that the need coming up. Well as we all know February is coming and that means Valentine’s day is coming. I am not offering a class specific to Valentine’s day this year so I’ve been trying to sprinkle in some loved themed cards here and there and especially in my card class.
I find that I tend to come up with cards I really like at the very last minute before I need them. Maybe when I have more time I keep changing and adding and over thinking it and when I’m pressed for time it’s just done because it has to be. Well this creation is one of those. As I got up Friday morning for my card class and looked over my selection of cards I realized I really should have one more Valentine choice. So I ran to my craft room and created this just before class started.
I really do love quick and simple cards. And this one came together just like that!
Here are the supplies I used:
- Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack #142733 $10
- Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 $30
- Suite Sentiments stamp set #142968 $28 (wood mount) – it also comes in clear mount
- Confetti Hearts Border punch #137415 $22
- Sweetheart punch #133786 $16
- Basic Black Baker’s Twine #134576 $3
Plus the Big Shot, Basic Black ink Real Red cardstock and adhesives.
The Stitched Shapes Framelits are one of my favorites and we have them in stock! They are awesome and match up beautifully to our layering circles, squares and oval framelits too.
