Stamp a Stack

A friend of mine told me about this monthly event called “Stamp a Stack”.  It is a group of ten Stampin’ Up demonstrators that each design a card and provide the materials, then those who attend go from table to table and make their card.  So for $25.00 you can make ten cards…that’s only $2.50 a card.  I thought it was a pretty good deal.  I’ve been wanting to give it a try and so while Jo was visiting me, we went. 


This is the first card we made and I really like it.  I think I can use this idea a lot.


It’s kind of hard to see but Jo is inking the edge of her blue rectangle in this picture.   


She did pretty good on most of the card making steps. Everything was pre cut. She had trouble getting the layers put on the card straight. I am straight challenged myself but we did okay! And she really struggled peeling off the paper from behind some of the adhesives we used. But while she struggled for a few minutes, I was able to put my own card together and then help her again. It worked out pretty good!

Here Jo is painting embossed flowers with watered down ink…



…for this card~


This card had a little ink painting to it also.  The window also had to be cut around the outside and the inside.  The Consultant at this table was really nice to Jo while I was doing the cutting, talking to her and helping her do some of the steps. 


This card is pretty cute.  Everything was done already…all we did was glue it together. 


Then this card was quite involved and only the paper was precut.  You can’t really tell in the picture but the jar is raised up and has clear plastic behind it, so it looks like a real glass jar!


So Stamp a Stack was a success.  We made some cute cards and I have already used three of mine.  I know Jo loved her cards and we had a good time together!

Hi Sherry! I received a beautiful card this weekend that put a smile on my face!! :-) Thank you so much for thinking of me & making me one of your special cards! You are so talented! I really enjoy reading your blog & keeping up with you & your family! You & Andrea encourage me more than you will ever know! Andrea keeps me going when I have those challenging days with the little ones! Sounds like you keep busy with your new career, but it also sounds like you enjoy it (at least most of the time!) It's hard to believe summer is almost over~~time is going by so quickly! Hope you're enjoying your days! It's time to start dinner so I'll go for now. Thanks again for the sweet card!

Debbie, you are so sweet, that pretty much has been your character always! I find it interesting that you are being encouraged by Andrea's mommy adventures...you really are being a Mommy all over again. Just think of the influence you are having on those little grand kiddos for the Lord. Much better than daycare! I will remember to pray for you!
