June Stamp-a-Stack

Once again we find ourselves at the first day of a new month! And that always means I have a fresh set of Stamp-a-Stack cards ready to go!

This month, my Stamp-a-Stack workshop will be held on Saturday, June 21st from 10am - noon. We will make a total of 12 cards using my supplies with the exception of adhesive. The cost is still only $10 with a $15 minimum order, or $20 without an order. This cost includes clear envelopes, or paper envelopes can be purchased at 0.20 cents each and can be stamped to coordinate with the cards.

I will again offer these cards to my non-local readers (and those that can't make it on the 21st) through my Mail-a-Stack option. You will receive a kit that will include all consumable supplies (cardstock & ribbon) to make the same 12 cards, along with paper envelopes, and my popular Instruction Sheets that have color photographs, supply lists, and detailed step-by-step instructions. The cost for the Mail-a-Stack option is $18 for local pick-up, or $22.80 if I need to ship it (Priority Mail). This reflects a slight increase from prior months.

Either way - whether you would like to join us here for the workshop or receive the kit - I need to know by June 20th at the very latest. Contact me to reserve your spot!

Alright, enough chit-chat! Here are this month's cards:

This first one uses the fun True Friend stamp set. The sentiment here is from Artfully Asian, but remember that you can swap out the sentiment on any of these cards to suit your needs. The main image has been colored with markers to allow multiple colors.

My idea for this one is to be prepared for any upcoming weddings or anniversaries. It uses the beautiful Morning Soft set, and the sentiment here comes from Short & Sweet. I did some VERY LIGHT watercoloring on the flowers to add in just a touch of color along with some Dazzling Diamonds to make the centers sparkle. Here's a closer look:

This card uses a new set I recently purchased - Bud Basics. The photo above is a close up of the style of this card, but we will be making an entire set in the workshop! Check out these colors:

The colors here are Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, and Groovy Guava. Aren't they wonderful? A nice, warm look to them. The sentiments came from various stamp sets and you are free to use whichever sentiments you need.

Now, because I am looking to totally FILL UP my Stamp-a-Stack workshop this month, I am offering a BONUS!! If you either come on June 21st or order the Mail-a-Stack kit, I will throw in the supplies and Instruction Sheet for the coordinating box that holds the set above - absolutely FREE!!

Isn't it fun?! This would be a beautiful gift for a friend, neighbor, mother, grandmother... or even yourself!

I hope I have enticed you to join us in whatever way you can! Stamping a stack of cards is the perfect way to have just the right card right when you need it. Don't rush out and buy a generic store-bought card... yuck. Grab your stash of Stamp-a-Stack cards and send something homemade instead! And don't forget my challenge to send out 20 cards during the month of June... I've taken care of 12 of them right here!
