I confess that I’ve been struggling to figure out how to offer classes while we need to practice physical distancing to protect each other (and our loved ones) from spreading COVID-19. A big part of the challenge is that Stampin’ Up! doesn’t allow us to provide stamped images to people, so I can’t create kits that include stamping. I finally figured out that I can offer a class featuring a stamp set and participants can do their own stamping and I can prepare the materials as kits. So I decided to do a Christmas in July class with this approach – I hope you’ll give it a try!

This class is based on the Snowman Season stamp set and the Subtles Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog. The class includes the Snowman Season stamp set, Subtles DSP and Basic Rhinestones. The Snowman Season stamp set premiered in the 2019 Holiday catalog, so if you already have the stamp set… I have an option for you, too. I will prepare all of the materials and get the kits to you along with the stamp set (if applicable), the Rhinestones and the remainder of the Subtles DSP. If you live locally, we can arrange a contact-less way to get you the kit. If you live further away, I can ship the kit and supplies to you via Priority Mail for an additional $8.

The Snowman Builder punch (item 150643) is a handy punch that coordinates with the stamp set. You don’t need it for these cards, but you can order it online if you want to have it for future crafting. I also used a number of Stampin’ Blends for creating shadows and coloring the scarf and hat. When you sign up for the class, I will share the additional items that I used to create the cards so you can determine what you need. Of course, you are totally free to use what you have and make cards of your own design. Please consider using Order Code QPFHQ2MR when purchasing supplies before July 15th. When you use an order code it helps offset some of my business costs for supplies used in classes and creating samples that I share on my blog.

Here are the details for the event:

  • RSVP Date – July 15th
  • Location – in your own home
  • Class includes the following products that will be yours:
    • Snowman Season stamp set
    • The unused portion of the Subtles Designer Series Paper
    • Basic Rhinestones
    • Prepared kits for all of the cards so you can focus on stamping and assembly
    • Printed instructions to guide you through creating the cards
    • Envelopes to mail your lovely creations
  • Price – $40 (paid in advance), $20 (no stamp set option) (paid in advance)

I know that we are far away from thinking about snowmen and Christmas, but I hope that you will try this class-to-go to get a headstart on your Holiday cards for this year.
