The Reason to Smile stamp set was only available for one month, but if you didn't get it, you could still make this card with another set... We made this card in my June Stepped Up Card Class. You can keep opening this card to reveal the different panels, and it keeps going and going! We'll be making a different Never Ending Card at Ila's & Joan's card class in October. You can what it looks like as you flip each panel below:

Card Kits Available!

Starting this month, all of my classes will be available as a kit! You will receive all of the card stock and paper (pre-cut & embossed) and embellishments as well as instructions and pictures of the cards so you can make the projects in the comfort of your home with your own stamps and inks. Today I'm showing you the Christmas Card kit from my Simple Card Classes this weekend. You will receive the supplies to make two of each of the cards shown above. The cost of the kit is $15.00 (plus mailing costs if you can't pick up your kit) or a $25.00 order (mailing costs for the card kit are extra). You can order this kit until September 30th, and you'll get a thank you gift from me if you refer someone and they purchase the kit too. Please e-mail me (sidebar) if you are interested in this kit... anyone in Canada can order from me!

 If you are in London, and can't make it to a certain class night, you are also welcome to order a kit, and make it on my Stamp & Scrap night the next month (first Friday of every month) so you can use my stamps & inks to complete your projects exactly as shown in the photos. P

More swap cards...

I'm sharing the rest of the swap cards we made at my August Gold Stars, Ink. Stamp night...
Pauline's card features the Snow Swirled stamp set and Triple Step stamping. 

Sherri's card features the Merry Minis stamps. She also coloured the Silver Glimmer paper with re-inker so it co-ordinated with the card!

Susan's card features the Holiday Frame Textured Impression folder to make this wreath.

Yvonne also used the Triple Step stamp technique (like Pauline), but she used different colours and the Snowflake Soiree stamp set.
I just realized I don't have a picture of my swap card... I'll have to fix that and post again! Thanks for another wonderful swap ladies! To anyone who is interested, my next swap will be in October.

Gold Stars, Ink. August Swap Cards!

The last Monday of each month I get together with my team members for a stamp night. We alternate Shoebox Swaps & Product Showcase each month. August was a swap month, and I invite all of my stampy friends to join us, so I had several downline and some past or not-yet downline stampers too. Our theme this month was Holiday, and I'll be sharing the cards over two posts.
 Ila used the Merry Minis stamp set and punch pack to make this card for us.
 Lisa's card shows how well the new Frosty Friends stamp works with the old stand-by Lovely As a Tree.
Monique's card has beautiful embossed and die cut snowflakes. 

My daughter Morgan likes to stamp with us too, and she came up with this card featuring Beautiful Season. She wanted a snow bird, so we coloured the bird with White Craft ink with a Blender Pen.

Nancy's card features the new Champagne Glimmer paper and Seasonal Sayings.
I'll be back with more swap cards tomorrow!
