Hello stampers. The stamp of the month is back! A few years ago I offered a stamp of the month. The first Tuesday of every month my coffee and a card class was free to those purchasing the stamp of the month. This time I would like to take this idea online as well. Are you interested?
How it works
The cards for the stamp of the month will be posted ahead of time so that you can see what we will be making. If you order the stamp set online with me, I will send you the card pieces so that you can make the same cards that we will be making in class AND that I will be demonstrating in my weekly live video. How much fun is that? I also do a blog post with these cards so you will also have a handy reference there.
Not in Canada?
You can still join in the fun without buying the set from me. Sadly even with online ordering I can only sell to Canadians. If you live in the USA, just click on the shop with Julie link in the sidebar. There will be an option to just get the card pieces. This will cost $15 including postage. I cannot include stamped images but I can include punched or die cut pieces.
The First Stamp of the Month
The first stamp of the month class will be on December 2, 2019. I have chosen Cup of Christmas after seeing some beautiful work by other demonstrators. When I first saw this set in the holiday catalog I had decided that this was one set that I didn’t need. Was I ever wrong! It is not well represented in the catalog, but I am hoping to change your mind as well over the next few days. I am super excited about the possibilities with this set.
I have shown the bundle because I love the detailed framelits, but you only need to get the stamp set to get the free class. Did you know that there is new technology in this stamp set? The mug stamps are reversible, they can be stamped on both sides!! Pretty fantastic I think.
Card Number One
So far I only have one card made with this set to show you, and it was made for me by my talented team member Alison Reid. I love it so much!! What do you think?
The plaid paper looks MUCH better in real life. This picture did not capture the pretty gold lines in the paper. This card is definitely not a five minute card but whoever receives this beauty will be displaying proudly on their mantel or on their string of cards. Here you can see the detail close up.
I am a firm believer in complete transparency. No gimmicks with me if I can help it. There are two reasons why I am offering this stamp of the month. Stamping is not a cheap hobby. Most hobbies are not cheap. However, once in a while I would like to offer my regular customers a bonus and the stamp of the month fits the bill for that. The second reason is that it is crucial for me to develop more of an online business as well. I need to keep generating income even when I am in Holland with Gerard for longer visits. My hope is that the stamp of the month will encourage new people to order online from me and that they will also feel like a part of my stamping community by being able to make the cards at home during my weekly live videos.
You can help me with this by sharing this great class idea. You could even participate with a group of your friends. If you all take your card kits with you to one person’s house you could have a virtual card class with me while I do my video. That would make me so happy!!!
When I have all three cards ready I will have a “buy it now” button for the card kit if you already own the stamp set or don’t live in Canada and can’t order it through me. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day.
