Tuesday, December 19th
Wow! How is it already December? It seems like the July Mystery Stamping Party was just yesterday!
I think you are going to LOVE this month’s fabulous project that you could use for any occasion when you want to let someone know they are special!
So, gather up your supplies and your favorite beverage and come solve the mystery with me on Tuesday!
I do have a few open seats at the Stamp Pad for this session of Mystery Stamping and of course there is ALWAYS room for you to join us via Zoom. Be sure to email me at email@example.com by 3:00pm on Tuesday, December 19th, so I can add you to the Zoom email list. You should receive the email with the link by 5:00pm. If you do not receive it by then, please contact me via text or email.
If you are joining us live at the Stamp Pad please arrive between 6:30 to 6:50pm to chat and get set up, so we can begin promptly at 7:00pm. If you are joining via Facebook Live we will start by 7:05pm. Please remember to keep chatting to a minimum in person or virtual unless you have a question about the project. We will have time to chat and ask any non-project questions after we finish.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for live or virtual spots.
Here is the scoop on how our Mystery Stamping Parties work. – You will need to gather your supplies and cut your cardstock before the party. There is a list of supplies (some are suggested, so don’t worry if you don’t have everything) and cardstock dimensions below.
During the party I will give you step-by-step directions to make your card along with some tips and tricks. We will NOT share anything about our projects until the very end.
PLEASE note that that I might practice a fancy fold to make sure I understand how it works, but I DO NOT create the full project until I do it with you. So, it is always a mystery how it will all turn out for me, just like it is for you!
It is always so much fun to see how everyone interprets the directions and with everyone using different stamps, cardstock, DSP, etc.., everyone’s card will be a one of a kind!
Please note that you CAN use anything you have in regards to stamp sets, punches, cardstock, DSP or embellishments. It can be retired if you have something you like and want to use.
Hint, if this is your first time joining us, you might consider prepping two sets of cardstock and DSP. We lovingly call this “Pulling an Allison.” This ensures that if something goes wrong or you decide you don’t like how something goes together you can easily fix it.
Here is a list of suggested tools and supplies you need to get together before the party:
- Choose a stamp set that has medium and small images. Matching dies or punches would be great, but are not necessary.
- Greeting stamp set if the one you choose does not have greetings.
- Ink pads, markers, etc…whatever you want to use that goes with your stamp set.
- Ribbon, trim and/or embellishments to add that final touch to your project.
- A Paper Trimmer is a MUST for this project!
- Embossing Folders if you like
- Simply Scored
- Silicone Craft Mat
- Bone Folder
- Multipurpose Glue is a MUST for this project, along with your favorite basic adhesive, Tear & Tape, Dimensionals, etc…
You will need the following sizes of cardstock and DSP. PLEASE cut these in advance.
These should be the same color:
- 2 pieces 4 x 8
- 3 pieces 2 7/8 x 2 7/8
3 pieces that coordinate with other cardstock:
- 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
- 3 pieces 2 1/2 x 2 1/2
- 2 pieces 1 7/8 x 3 7/8
These pieces can be either coordinating cardstock OR Designer Series Paper. If you choose to use DSP please use something non-directional or wait until we start stamping to cut these:
- 4 pieces 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
Contact me with any questions or if you need supplies for this fun virtual event!
I can’t wait to stamp with you!
Stay Safe & Crafty!
