Card Making Projects, Retiring List and Schedule!

Hi, Fabulous Stampers!

It has been a wonderful week of stamping friends, both near and far.  I am fortunate to have my "Long Distance Stampers" from South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, New York, Maine and now Texas!  (Thank you, Debby and Susan!) and I am so fortunate have all of my local stampers from the Art Gallery, Titusville Art League, Cocoa Beach Library and of course the SOS Stamp Club!

I determined some time ago that stampers are just really special, caring and sweet gals!  I love that I have met you and that you are a wonderful part of my life!
Thank You!!!

I wanted to share this week's projects with you!  We made the Birthday Blooms card (with thanks to Oksana Semenska for the design!) and the reflection card (Lovely as a Tree) for our 2 Art Gallery of Viera classes and my SOS stamp club team.  





We added the gift card/treat holder for today's Cocoa Beach Library card.  Ladies, you are awesome to finish all 3 projects in less than 2 hours!  Whew!!

I believe that ALL of my stampers have now made this easy-peasey treat/gift card holder!!


Shhhhhh!!  I'm going to case one of next Monday's cards from Trudy's "show and tell" last evening!  It's a fabulous card featuring the Rose Garden Framelit!!  Can't wait!! (Trudy tells me that she got her ideas for the card from Dena Rekov!  Well done, Dena!)

Many thanks to Donna K.  for demonstrating how super easy it is to make coasters with 4x4 tiles, DSP and Modge Podge for our SOS stamp club!  Definitely on my list of things to do!

Last Post Before OnStage/CentreStage in Salt Lake City

 

Hi, Stampers!

Well I'm very soon off to Salt Lake City and was up late finishing packing and swap materials gathering and thought I'd dash off a quick post.  We had a great Monday with two clean and simple cards.  Kudos to Mary Fish, my inspiration for the celebrate card.  I love how the black makes the patterned paper (Go Wild) just pop!

And yes, we'll be meeting this Monday to make the columnar "box" card.  Many thanks to Bea Woods to sharing her card and the directions with me.  We'll also make one of the gift card holders that I'm making for my swaps.  Many thanks to super-creative stampin' gal, Oksana Semenska, for the inspiration and directions.  Gonna be fun!!  So go ahead and RSVP Art Gallery gals and I'll send along a supply list when I return on Sunday. (Classes are at 10:30 am and 1:30 pm.)

Check out the new Weekly Deals on my Blog at www.artgallerycards.com and try not to weep as this is theeeee last Weekly Deals!! (There's a button at the top of the page.) This just means that Stampin' Up has another surprise for us!  Can't wait!

I'll be away but I'll check email.  Let me know if I can be of help to you!  Happy stampin'!!

Stampin' Hugs and Smiles,
Ree

Cardmaking Classes With Ree at the Gallery

Hi, Stampers!

I hope you've had a wonderful week!  So sad that Sale-A-Bration is over but it won't be long until the new 2016-17 Annual Catalog is revealed!  OnStage in Salt Lake City is in just 2 weeks!  My buddy, Linda, and I will be attending and bring back all sorts of great ideas and surprises for you!!!

Keep scrolling to see some of the creations from this week's classes, the schedule for upcoming classes, this week's Weekly Deals and some birthday items too!
Here is one of Monday's cards.  This is my sister-in-law's card.  This was Mary's first class and you can see that she's a pro!!  (I lifted her picture from fb :)
Many thanks to Oksana Semenska for the inspiration for both this card and the the wash card below.  You can see more of Oksana's beautiful designs at http://stampwithoksana.blogspot.com/



This is a technique that we practiced at one of Oksana Semenska's classes.  We heat embossed with Whisper White EP and then painted on a Blushing Bride wash with aquapainters.


A special card was in order for Grandson Troy's 21st birthday.  He is a surfer, fisherman, and boater.  That's his Border Collie puppy, Eva holding the balloons.  She's actually much larger now but what a sweetie!

Eek!  The photography does not do the color of Hello Honey justice but here is the surprise inside.

I also made a nautical banner for the cake or gift table.
You might recognize the retired Designer Series Paper.
