Drum roll please…registration is now open for my new Painted Harvest Online Class. This Stampin' Up! stamp set is one of the hottest new fall products from our Holiday Catalog. Launched as a seasonal, fall stamp set, all the images can be used for practically any occasion, not just autumn! I'm so excited to offer this class to teach you three projects and loads of tips for using this uh-maazing set!

Registration is Now Open for my NEW Painted Harvest Online Class

I'll be teaching this class on Facebook LIVE on October 5, 2017 at 7:00 pm CST. You can watch it then OR, since you'll have lifetime access once you purchase, you can watch anytime and as many times as you like!

Once you register, I'll send you the link to join the secret Facebook group. Click on the link and then “join group”. I'll approve you into the group and that's it! You'll be ready to participate in the fun!

If you'd like to stamp along with me during the class, you can purchase this stamp set by itself or save 10% and purchase the bundle, which also includes a leaf punch. During the class I'll be showing a bonus card that shows you a fun idea for the punch.

Painted Harvest With Burlap Background

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Online Classes/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

The Painted Harvest Stamp Set is certainly one of my top 5 sets in the Holiday Catalog! This Painted Harvest With Burlap Background card would even be perfect as a place card for your seasonal table! Instead of the word “hello”, personalize each card with your guests' name. The Burlap Background Stamp adds just the right amount of “texture” to this card and makes it pop a bit more than just having all the white space.

This stamp set also comes as part of a bundle, along with a unique leaf punch. If you purchase the bundle instead of buying each item separately, you'll save 10%!

Painted Harvest With Burlap Background

I LOVE this stamp set so much that I've designed a class featuring 3 projects (and a bonus card showing you an idea for using the leaf punch!)  The exciting thing is this is going to be a Facebook Live Class. You can join me as I'm making the projects and teaching OR you can watch it later at you convenience. You'll have lifetime access to the class so you can watch it as many times as you like! I'll have the details and a link to purchase my class here on Friday, September 22. If you want to stamp along during the class, go ahead and order the bundle today!

During September and October, Stampin' Up!'s Merry Patterns stamp set is a free gift added to any order of at least $300. One of my customers placed her annual Holiday Catalog order and was thrilled to know this will be an “extra freebie”! We sure love those don't we!

This limited-time stamp set is only available during this time period and features two step stamping images. There is an outline stamp and one with patterns. In my card today, you stamp the pattern image first and then the outline.
