sneak peeks adventure

I don't usually post Stamp-a-Stack card before the events, but I thought I'd let you peek at them early this month.  And I'll even admit that usually, they're not all done this early (Stamp-Stack is the third Thursday and Saturday each month, so, this week - and yes, two days is early).  Stamp-a-Stack at my house costs $10 (unless you're a member of my demonstrator team, then it's FREE!), and you get all the materials you need to make 2 each of 4 cards.  I posted one of the cards yesterday - it's the second card pictured.  Here's another, which is based on this week's Merry Monday sketch:
stamp sets - Watercolor Winter, Seasonal Sayings; ink - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Soft Suede; card stock - Naturals White, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip; punches - 1-3/8" square, 1-1/4" circle
Oh, look - no Big Shot!  It's the only card this month that doesn't use the Big Shot.  The next two cards do;  they're designed to illustrate positive and negative selective embossing.  I've done this card before (you can see the previous version pictured second in this post), but I've changed a couple of things:
stamp sets - Petite Pairs, Scentsational Season; ink - Platinum Shimmer paint, silver Stampin' Dazzle marker; card stock - Brushed Gold, Always Artichoke; punch - Modern Label; Big Shot with Petals-a-Plenty textured impressions embossing folder; rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals
stamp set - Open Sleigh; ink - Riding Hood Red, Versamark; Stampin' Emboss powder - white; card stock - Riding Hood Red, Whisper White; punch - Scallop Trim border; Big Shot with Petals-a-Plenty textured impressions embossing folder
Now, I know that given these sneak peeks, you could make all these cards yourself using your own supplies and you wouldn't have to spend $10.  (Well, it would be almost that much, but not quite.)  But, you wouldn't be able to spend some fun stampin' time with me and the other great people who will be here!
