Mail a Card Monday

I’m starting something new for 2018 – Mail a Card Monday – #mailacardmonday.

Every Monday I plan to send out at least one card and I’m challenging everyone else to join me!

This was my mailbox when I was sending out Christmas cards – so I’m not sending out that many every Monday.  I’m challenging everyone to send out at least one card each Monday for the whole year!  That would be 52 cards.

Last week Monday was a holiday but I got my cards in the box – I had 4 go out last week. So they really went out on Tuesday but I had them in the box.  Today I mailed out 7 cards and had to resend one Christmas Card.

 

Throughout the week I make myself a little list of who I need to send cards to and then on Sunday’s I’m getting them together.  I really do love to decorate the envelopes.  So if I don’t already have a coordinated envelope I’m try to make those real quick on Sunday night.

Will you join me?  I’m posting on my Instagram and on my Facebook Page and Group.  Be sure to share a picture with me and a comment and let me know you are playing along.

Have a great day and let me know if you are playing along.  And post with the hashtag #mailacardmonday

Tree Tags & Free Shipping

Tree Tags & Free Shipping

Last Friday I was scheduled to have a Wrap Up the Holidays class but mother nature didn’t like that idea.  Instead we had snow!  Which is not normal for us – I live in Georgia – we average maybe 1-2″ of snow in a whole year and that’s usually in Jan/Feb time frame – occasionally in March.  Rarely in December.  But this weekend we got about 8″ of snow at my house!  So since my class was cancelled I decided to be brave and do a FB Live on my Stamping Together At Monika’s Place Facebook page instead.  It was my first real one on my page where I showed a project.  You can visit my page to watch it if you haven’t already.

Here is the project that I made.

It’s a set of tags featuring the Card Front Builder Thinlits dies and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also made a little box to hold the tags.

Little Miss Piggy

I’ve been having fun playing with the new Stampin’ Blends.  I wanted to show you one of the cards I made.

Isn’t she so cute?

I used the new Stampin’ Blends with the This Little Piggy set.  She is so happy on my card. Did you know you can also color the pearls?  I have a little tiny pearl in the center of the flower and it’s colored with the Pool Party Blends to match the flower.

A quick fall notecard

I love to use the Notecards & Envelopes for quick little cards.  The Very Vanilla ones are nice for a fall feel.

fall-flourishes-3

This one uses the Flourishing Phrases stamps set, a little bit of the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper.  And to dress it up just a bit a die cut piece from the Flourish Thinlits.  Stamp the envelope to match.

Quick and easy to make a stack – the notecards come in a pack of 20 with envelopes.

Thanks – it’s short and sweet today.

Card Maker’s Class

Every month I have a Card Maker’s Class at my stamping studio.  It’s the perfect class for every level of stamper.  You get to make the cards that you need and work at your own pace.  Card choices vary each month.  I’m there to help you with anything you need.  Upcoming dates for this class are:

  • Friday, October 27 – 10 am and 7 pm
  • Friday, November 17 – 10 am and 7 pm
  • Friday, December 15 – 10 am and 7 pm

Here is a look at the card choices from the September class last week.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Every card is in a shoe box with all the supplies inside.  You select a box take it back to your seat, make one or  more cards and then clean everything and return the supplies to the box and the box to the table.

My Paper Pumpkin subscribers get to make a bonus card – it’s an alternate idea using the stamps from the monthly kit.  This month my class was held before my kit arrived (actually my kit arrived the day of class) so I had a second idea for the August kit.

If you live local I hope you can join me!

Have a great day!

Halloween Pumpkins

Remember  a few days ago I posted about the Spooky Cat Bundle and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper – you can read it HERE.  I was telling you about the Designer Series paper and how some of the designs were special.  For this card I used the Pumpkin print paper which coordinates with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.

happy-halloween-pumpkins

Those little pumpkins are from the Spooky Nights Designer Series paper – cut perfectly with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.  I also used two other strips of paper from the pack.  The stamps are from the Spooky Cat stamp set – the “Happy Halloween” and also the little striped image at the top.  Plus I added Black Rhinestone Jewels.

It’s a very quick and easy card.
