Merry Christmas to You and Your Families from the Calkins Family!
This was one of my Christmas cards I sent out to family and friends. I made it using My Digital Studio. The picture was taken at my nephews wedding this summer and I thought it would make a nice family photo for our Christmas card this year.
Today is the sketch challenge at Try Stampin’ On Tuesday.
Here is the sketch for this week:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I used some of the new products from the upcoming Spring Catalog. The Sentiment on the DSP is actually printed on the DSP. I thought it added just the right touch for this card. The hearts are from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and is the first stamp set in my Stamp Set of the Month Club.
Here are the details if you would like to participate.
This is a great club if you do not live near me and cannot attend classes or you don’t have time to attend classes but would still like to get a stamp set and some samples for it. Sound interested?
How would you like to receive a brand new stamp set, and 2 FINISHED full card samples at your doorstep EVERY month! No gas, no having to leave your house and something fun to look forward to instead of bills!
I will preselect a stamp set each month (WHICH you can change if you want!) make 2 finished samples for you, and mail them directly to your home. (If you do change out the stamp set your samples will still be of the set I had selected.)
I will charge your credit card each month for clear mount stamp set only $28.00 and for wood mount stamp set only $35.00. Plus you get 2 beautiful full size cards that you can use or just keep and copy over and over again!
The next 3 stamp sets have been selected!
January: Hearts a Flutter (in the upcoming new Spring catalog) (Coordinating Bundle Option Available $55.00 for wood or $49.00 for clear)
February: Oh Hello (in the upcoming new Spring catalog) (Coordinating Bundle Option Available $57.00 for wood or $51.00 for clear)
March: Secret Garden (in the upcoming new Spring catalog) (Coordinating Bundle Option Available $55.00 for wood or $49.00 for clear)
(Remember, you can always change the selection to whatever you prefer. Plus if you choose a bundle option one month you do not have to choose the bundle option the next month.)
Plus as a Bonus! You can select ANY hostess stamp set for free one time during your subscription, AND if you join in December, I will throw in the brand new, adorable Designer Builder Brads for FREE from the New Spring catalog.
– You join for a minimum of 6 months, and then you can cancel at any time.
– I will charge your card $28.00 for clear mount, $35.00 for wood mount during the month. (Sometime during 1st-10th)
– If you want to change a stamp set, you have to let me know by the 1st of the month except in January because the new Spring catalog doesn’t begin until January 3. If you would like to purchase the Bundles please let me know by the 1st of the month.
That’s it! I do all the rest!
Your first set will arrive by January 17th.
If you would like to join email me: [email protected] In your email please state that you are signing up for the Stamp Set of the Month club; if you would like wood or clear mount and give me your phone number so I can call to get your credit card information if I do not already have it on file.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
