If you are like me, you want to have a card ready for ever occasion. And if you are REALLY like me, you are always behind the 8-ball and creating a card at the last minute, before you run out of the house to a baby shower, or the night before a holiday (shhh, don't tell my husband that I don't have his Valentine Card made yet!).
I know that many of us are like that and because of this, it may hinder us in believing that we could be hand-made card givers. Who wants to stress before running out to a birthday party, right? So in comes the "Stamp-a-Stack", can you hear the crowd cheering? Well, maybe the crowd needs to know what the heck a "Stamp-a-Stack" is before they can cheer, duh.
A "Stamp-a-Stack" is a FUN time with the girls (guys welcome!) when you come to my house and everything is ready for you to STAMP a STACK of hand-made cards, made by YOU! So you go home with a collection of cards, ready to give at the perfect moment, no stress, including envelopes!
What's that? I think I hear the crowd cheering now!
Here is a sneak peek of two of the cards we will be making at my upcoming, and very first, Stamp-a-Stack. Let me know if you would like some more information about how you can participate!
First is a Valentine. I LOVE the new "Hearts a Flutter" stamp set that is in the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog and I am a sucker for banners.
Another card we will be making is this beautiful yet simple Thinking of You card using the versatile "Thoughts & Prayers" stamp set. When someone loses a loved one or has a tragedy in their lives, I hope I can let them know that I care as soon as possible. Getting a hand-made card could be the highlight of that persons day.
