Hello stampers. We are having our first snowfall so it is very fitting that we are playing with Cup of Christmas today. What a fun set. So many possibilities. If you read my blog yesterday you will already know that this is going to be my stamp of the month for December.
How it works
How does the stamp of the month work? If you live locally then you will get a free coffee and a card class on the first Tuesday of the month if you purchase Cup of Christmas. When you order online, then you will get the card pieces and you will be able to create the cards with me when I do my weekly Facebook live, coffee and a card revisited. If you don’t live in Canada and already have the stamp set you can purchase a set of three cards already made for $15.
A card from Holland
When I was in Holland last month I was invited to join Caroline VanderStraaten’s team for an afternoon of card making. Her blog is called Caro’s Kaartjes. There is a Google translate option so you can read it in English. Not sure who made this card, but I think it was our host Annette Koolmees. I was hoping to recreate her card but I left all my Come to Gather paper in Holland! That just means I will share her card as well as a link to her blog and I will create more cards later today.
I was so inspired by Annette’s work that I did take a few more pictures. If you want to check out this lovely lady’s work, here is her blog. This next card is also a fall card using a Christmas set. It just shows you how versatile this set is! Would you like to know what this Dutch saying means? Loosely translated it means “wishing you much warmth and love in these cold days”. Our English saying is “wishing you a Christmas filled with love & happiness”. I think I like the Dutch one more!!
Annette had one more card with this set that really shows how you can use it for any occasion. The saying on the cup says “chock full of love”.
Don’t you just love Annette’s cards using Cup of Christmas? This card begs to be cased. I just have to figure out where that cute heart is from. I know I could substitute but I am real sucker for making the card exactly like the one I love!! Do you think the MMMM! comes in the Dutch set? I like it better than YUM!
Be sure to set up an online shopping account with me! Coming very soon, just in time for you to spoil yourself for Christmas, is my first ever BOGO online sale. I am not a big fan of acronyms, BOGO means buy one get one free.
The way it works is that you will see my retired stamp sets and bundles with a price sticker on them. If you want it for free you simply place an online order using the host code for the same amount of money. For example, if I have Lovely as a Tree for $25, then you will get it for free if you place a $25 online order. I will do a blog post on just this and I will also create a Facebook event which you will join before the sale. There will be very specific details for you to follow to make sure it goes smoothly.
Once you order from me, you also get to be a part of the exclusive Pampered Stamper Elite group on Facebook. Only customers and training group members get to be there. I have exclusive Facebook live videos there every week as well.
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring of love and affirmation with the news of my Global 100 achievement- #49 in the world and #4 in Canada. You mean so much to me. It is such a blessing to have such a supportive community. Thank you.
