Second Project from Tuesday night!

It's FRIDAY!!!! Have you had a great week?? :) Today marks the SIX WEEKS mark until Christmas Day, people! :D It's time to start thinking of Christmas cards - and I really love this one.

This is the Gentle Peace photopolymer stamp set. Yes, I've pretty much sworn not to purchase these - but it's the best nativity set we've got this year! :) You can see it at this link. So, I embossed it with white embossing powder, then cut out a mask and covered it.

Next, we used plastic wrap and put both Perfect Plum and Whisper White ink onto the surrounding card stock, to give it that unique texture. That's IT. So simple, but I really love it - and it would work in almost any color you wanted to use!

OK, I'm outta here - the next ten days are crazier than usual for me! :D Have a WONDERFUL weekend, and be sure to make the time to stamp SOMEthing!

Hostess Club's First Project


Welcome to Wednesday! Last night was our Hostess Club get-together, and we had a great time. :) This is one of our projects; I love all the texture I was able to get in this simple card! :)

The colors are Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White. The "thankful for you" is from the free set I got in October for hosting a party over $300. I LOVE free! :D

Think of the different color combinations you could come up with - for all seasons! I really think this works for fall, and since we used stamps that say "thankful" on the outside and "grateful" on the inside, it's a Thanksgiving card! :)

OK, I'm outta here! SO much to do, so little time to do it in!!! :) Have a wonderful day - and make sure to make the time to stamp something!!!

MDS Monday - Kenn in Indiana


Welcome to another Monday! :) Did you have a good weekend? Mine was exhausting, but here we go into another week! :D

Today's MY DIGITAL STUDIO share is this quick and oh!-so-easy scrapbook page I made of some of the photos I took of Kenn last month on our trip. Quick color and stamp selection, deciding how to do my title, and voila! It's done! :D

If you haven't tried MDS yet, what's stopping you? It's a free download to try, and you can make WONDERFUL gifts with it!

OK, I'm outta here. :) Have a wonderful day! Be sure and make the time to stamp SOMEthing! :)

Crossover: Hostess Appreciation Luncheon part TWO

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a good week, and that you're enjoying seeing what we do at my Hostess Appreciation Luncheon. :) Today, I'll show you the two projects we did.

First up, the GRINCH!

Isn't he adorable?!?!? I found a whole bunch of Top Note bags on Splitcoast Stampers, and adapted the Grinch one to suit me. :) I even used MY DIGITAL STUDIO to make the background paper; those are the words to "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch"! :)

There are a lot of different things you can do with the Top Note Die. We'll never do a bag quite like this in a class, people; that's one of the perks of being a hostess and getting an invitation to the Luncheon. We will ONLY do these projects at the luncheon!!!

The second one we did was also one I saw a photo of, and took my twist on: meet the snowman hamburger box!

Isn't he cute? My mom loved this one. :) He's got such a sweet face!

I really hope you've enjoyed a little insight into what we do at the Hostess Appreciation Luncheon. Don't forget: you can earn an invitation to the next one just by hosting a qualifying party! (We can even do it online!) You can even have your OWN party - it's simply $150 in merchandise. Contact me now, so we can get it on the calendar! If you want to see the side dishes we had at the luncheon, just go to Life's Little Pleasures and look for today's post! :)

Have a wonderful weekend! Be sure and take the time to stamp SOMETHING!!!

Crossover: Hostess Appreciation Luncheon part ONE

Welcome to Wednesday! :) Today and Friday, I'll be sharing some photos from our Hostess Appreciation Luncheon last month; the only way of getting an invitation is to host a qualifying party, which isn't hard - and is easiest to do at my studio, so you don't even have to clean your house if we have it here! :D

Today, I'm showing you the table setting, the invitation, and the table favor. No directions, not a lot of to-do. :) I'd LOVE for you to have a party, so you can come to next year's!

First up: what each place setting looked like.


Pretty, right?!?!? :) I love fall - the colors are SO rich.

Next, the invitation!


Again, rich color, intriguing centerpiece. :D

And finally, each person received one of these table favors; the bag is filled with this snack mix....


These were just FUN. :)

If you'd like to see some of the food we had for our Luncheon, please visit Life's Little Pleasures and look for today's post! :)

Again, contact me if you'd like to be eligible to come to the next Luncheon! Have a wonderful day, and be sure to take the time to stamp SOMEthing!

MDS Monday - Traveling in the Midwest


Happy Monday! It's NOVEMBER, people!!! Are you working on your Christmas cards? Gifts? Scrapbooks so you can drop in your photos? Me, either. It's time to go full tilt for the open house! :D

In the meantime, MY DIGITAL STUDIO continues to make my life easier. :) I really like this page; it didn't take me too long at all, once I decided what theme I wanted. I enjoyed this trip, very much - but it was difficult to capture the amazing splendor of God's artwork!!! There was so much I just had to soak in... :)

We had a wonderful trip, and came back to jump right back in again with both feet. :D

OK, I'm outta here, people. :D Have a WONDERFUL day, and be sure to MAKE the time to stamp SOMETHING!

Fun With Punches, Take Two - Merry & Bright


It's FRIDAY!! I'm HOME! I bet you didn't even miss me... :D

So today's card is a little hard to tell the colors - I couldn't get them to "read" quite right. It's Smoky Slate and Night of Navy. That's gold spritz on the background; the stars are punched out of gold foil "paper" and popped with dimensionals. "Merry & bright" is embossed with silver embossing powder, to give it a nice change of pace.

I think it's a simple, kind of elegant card - my mom "ooooh"ed when she saw it. :D It was fun to make, too. :)

OK, that wraps up another week here at Lori's Stamping Spot! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stamp away! :D
