New Monthly Madness and January 2019 Samples!

Hello!  I know my blog is lonely.  So many cards I made in 2018 still need to be uploaded here.  I "hope" to remedy this issue sometime soon, even if it is just a photo a day!  Last year, I did do a few months of card kits from my home and it was quite successful so this year, I decided to try to grow this little venture into something more.  I now have my very own Facebook page!  For my friends, that do not do Facebook, no worries, I will still use my blog here to share photos and details.  Speaking of details, here is the scoop ...

Each monthly set will include 2 each of 5 different handmade cards either in kits where you make them yourself or cards premade by me. 10 cards total!  These are complete cards so there are inside panels too, with sentiments.  

Then there are 3 options:

Option 1: All In!  This is the every month option and is the best value.  $30 + $5 shipping.  You get the set of 10 card kits plus a thank you bonus card made by me that is ready to send.  Each kit has complete instructions with color photos.  Everything is cut, stamped, and ready to assemble.  (As Always!)


Option 2: Pick and Choose!  Pick the months you prefer to receive your set of 10 card kits.  $40 + $5 shipping.  This kit also has complete instructions with color photos.  Everything is cut, stamped and ready to assemble.

Option 3: Premade by Me!  This set is for completed cards made by me for you.  Add $10 to Option 1 or 2.


Date & Deadlines:  I will have the month's card samples available to show you no later than the 10th of the month.  Only a limited number of kits are available each month.  This is another advantage for Option 1 to make sure that you do not miss out on the monthly set!  Payment is required by the 15th of the month.  And the kits (or cards) will be sent out by the end of the month!  I can do paypal or you can send me a check.  Contact for info.  

Now that I have shared that with you, let's get to this month's kit cards!  Enjoy!


The Jar of Hearts is 3D.  You could add sequins and make it a shaker card!
This is the inside.

I love this one!

AND

And this month, everyone will be doing option 1(or prepaid option 3) so everyone will get the bonus card!  I love how these turned out.  I hope you do too! 

Remember the deadline to purchase is January 15th.  Send me an email at stamperfw@aol.com.  


Happy Stamping!

Crazy Christmas Card Class Share!

Hello!  Remember me?  I love my job but finding the time to create when I am not working has been a struggle.  So, to give me a boost, I decide I should teach my crazy class!!  This is the 4th year I have taught this one and it is one that everyone loves.  Who wouldn't since I do almost all the work and you get everything to make 30 cards.  And that  is why I say CRAZY!   I am teaching at The Crafty Scrapper, but as always if you can't come, a kit is the way to go.  You don't want to miss out on this one.  On their website, you will see the group photo, but here I have the individual cards to show you.  Oh, and this time, there are 3 cards that kinda have a little something special, still easy enough to make with or without me, but couldn't resist adding a little extra fun.  Here are the 15 different cards you will be making...enjoy!
 
 

 
 This is one of the special ones, as it has a pull out message ...





 
 Special card #2, see how it opens...






 


 Special card #3, Gate fold opening ...

 

Below are the details if you are interested in coming to class or would like a kit.  The store's number is 972-923-3151.  Or send me a message.

6 x 6 Christmas Card Bonanza (aka Tina's Crazy Class) Saturday November 10th 1:00 p.m.$60
For the fourth year, I am doing your favorite class and one that makes me think, I must be crazy!  You will follow my samples to create 15 complete cards in class. (By complete, I mean that they all have panels on the inside with stamped sentiments).  In addition, as part of your kit, you will receive the remaining half of a 6 x 6 pad from Echo Park called Merry & Bright, my detailed instructions, and measurements for each page left in your pad, so that you can cut the remaining sheets, add your own white cardstock bases to create a second set of cards at home.  Plus, you will also receive all stamped and die cut images, all the colored panels and inside sentiment panels for your "to go kits"!  If 15 cards, are plenty, then you will have embellishments, colored cardstock panels, and half of a 6 x 6 pad to create other items with.  Please bring adhesive to include pop-ups, mini or micro glue dots, 3M foam tape, an X by Xyron (if you have one), detailed scissors, and your preferred coloring medium.  (Copics I used: E00, E33, C7, G00, G28, YG17, Y17, R46, R89, R43, RV25, RV32, RV10, C2, R11, YR23, E42, BG10, YR15).  All other supplies provided.

I really hope you can come.  I really miss seeing everyone!
Happy Stamping!

Guy Greetings Card Kit!

Hello!  I finished my next card kit samples a few days ago and just now getting them ready for you to see!  Since Father's Day is in June and I always hear ladies asking for guy card ideas, I thought it was a great idea to make a "guy" set.  Last month I gave with the kit, sentiments stamped out so that you could have the choice of what occasion the cards would be for and could adhere these to the insides to complete them.  I am going with that idea again because I know not everyone needs Father's Day cards.  I think mainly guy cards are for birthdays or Father's Day so I will be including 3 each of two different sentiments. ( See photo below.)  One note, if you need other sentiments, let me know, I am sure I have whatever you need, as I have a lot of sentiment stamps!  Of course, envelopes are included with your kit!  The cost for the kits where you color and assemble is $22 + $5 shipping.  If you would rather me put them together for you, that cost is $25 + $5 shipping.  I wish I could get the shipping costs down, but unfortunately, it is, what it is.  You can send me a check or use your credit card to send payment by Paypal..  Okay, it is time for you to check out the cards!  Enjoy!

This first one uses a stamp I have used before, but he makes me smile.  On this one I just had to paper piece his apron...so cute!


And the second one, gives me a chuckle for sure!  Last month I used the old lady gardener, this month we have the guy one!  Howdy Hoe!!

 
If you took my classes, this third card will be similar to one I taught in class, just somewhat of a simpler version.  I really wanted to do another idea with the tools.  After all, I only have about 40 cards pinned on Pinterest of ideas!  But in the end, I couldn't resist repeating a favorite idea! 

The view on the backside of the card ...


I found some nice baseball paper that I thought would be great for a baseball card.  I really didn't know how to create a baseball, but I do now!  And so will you, as I will be including a very easy tutorial.  One other note, yesterday I showed the cards to some ladies at church, and they thought the card was a vertical one ... well yes, it could be, but I planned it to be horizontal, as shown!  Whatever, lol!

 
And last but not least, for card #5, a little fishing owl!  Of course!  Love how this one came out.  I even like the fish paper, even though the images on it would be better smaller!  It still works!


And the sentiments for the insides ...
 


 
This next photo shows the way I finish all the cards on the insides, so these panels are included too.
 
 
The kits will be ready to go in the mail by next Tuesday, May 29th!  That will still give you two full weeks before Father's Day to get them done.   I make all at one time, so once they are gone, they are gone.  Make sure you get on the "I want one" (or more) list! Here are ways to get ahold of me ... Email, stamperfw@aol.com Phone, 817-938-7754 (phone or text), or FB Messenger.
One thing I am starting to get more special orders of cards that people need.  So, remember that if you need a card that maybe you don't have an idea for, don't have time, or don't have the stamps or dies that will work, let me do it for YOU!  You still have a choice whether you want it in kit form so it is handmade by you, or if you want me to make it for you.  Either way, I appreciate the opportunity!
Happy Stamping!

BLOOM Card Kit!

Hello!  I have my next card kit samples ready to show you!  I am calling this one BLOOM, as all the cards have kinda of a garden theme.  I am using some 6 x 6 pads I picked up at the Scrapbook Expo.  But even though the designer papers came from one pad, the cards have such different looks.  As I was creating them, I am thinking we have beautiful, sweet, funny, pretty and cute!  Yes, 5 cards in the kit!  All the cards would be perfect for many occasions including Mother's Day.  Knowing not everyone needs Mother's Day cards, I came up with another solution.  I will be including several different stamped sentiments that you can adhere inside the cards to complete it.  (See photo below.)  And of course, envelopes are included too!  The cost for the kit where you color and assemble is $22 + $5 shipping.  If you would rather me put them together for you, that cost is $27 + $5 shipping.  I wish I could get the shipping costs down, but unfortunately, it is, what it is.  You can send me a check or use your credit card to send payment by Paypal..  Okay, all that is left is for you to check out the cards!  I love how they came out and I hope you do too.  Enjoy!


Beautiful!
 
Sweet!
 
Funny!
 
Pretty!
 
Cute!
 
Typical Complete Inside
 
You will get 2 of each of the 4 stamped sentiments!
 
If there is another sentiment you will need, just ask.  I own so many sentiment stamps it would make your head roll!  LOL!  The kits will be ready to go in the mail by next Friday, the 20th!  I make all at one time, so once they are gone, they are gone.  Make sure you get on the "I want one" (or more) list! Here are ways to get ahold of me ... Email, stamperfw@aol.com Phone, 817-938-7754 (phone or text), or FB Messenger.

I have many more card kit ideas and hope to work on more of them after this set is done.  Plus, I see on my computer, there are still cards that I made last year that I haven't shared.  I don't know why I never think about taking time to write blog posts except when I have something to sell.  Need to work on that!

See you soon!
Happy Stamping!

Easter Cards Kit Share!

Hello!  I am back!!  I have a life update for you which I will add at the bottom of this post, but first, I want to share some exciting news.  I have decided to make monthly card kits to sell!  They will be less crazy type fold cards and more easy to put together type cards so that you don't have to feel like you can't do them without me.  The sets will likely be based on a theme, like the first one is Easter.  Now, I know Easter is only three weeks away, but I promise, if you want a kit, they will be in the mail to YOU by Wednesday, which will you give you two weeks to assemble and time for you to mail them. My first set is 5 cards.  And they are 5 complete cards, which means that the insides have panels including stamped sentiments.  I am even including envelopes.  Just like my classes, all the panels are cut, pieces are die cut and stamped. All that is left is for you to do is color and assemble.  A couple of the cards have some simple cutting around a stamped image. Don't like to cut? Let me know and I will do it for you.  Cost is $22.00 + $5.00 shipping. I plan to get an Etsy shop open soon, so that can help you if you want to pay with a credit card. But for this month, you can pay me thru paypal or send me a check. And yes, photos of the cards are below!  Enjoy!












Want to order a kit?  Just contact me.  The best way is to email me at stamperfw@aol.com or call or text me at 817-938-7754. Or if you usually contact me thru Facebook messenger, that will work too.  I am making a limited number of kits, so when they are gone, they are gone.  I just need to know if you want one so I can get them in the mail.  Or if you want two kits, then you will pay just one shipping fee.  Thanks in advance!

Now, I did promise a life update ... I am back looking for work.  I was working for the post office in Tyler.  I gave it my all and I did my best, but for several reasons, I realized it wasn't the best fit for me.  One of the reasons, for sure, was the fact that I was too tired to open the craft room door, let alone make a card!  I did not stamp one thing for three whole months.  That is just wrong.  I need to have some kind of job that has a schedule so I can do some planning, make some kits, as opposed to always being on call.  I also need to be a little closer to home, to not be adding so many miles on my car  Anyway, just say a little prayer that the right job comes my way!  And celebrate me being creative again!

Happy Stamping!
Tina
