Weekly News / Quick Card Idea

By | July 21, 2015

Today, I have an announcement about my new round of Stamps In the Mail, a little inspiration, and news about the loads of great deals at Stampin’ Up!  (So be sure to read all the way to the bottom!!!)

Stamps In the Mail:

The fourth round of Stamps In the Mail will be starting up in August featuring the By The Tide stamp set.  This is a three month class that you can do in the comfort of your own home and on your own time.  In this class, I use one stamp set to make 12 different projects.  Each month, you receive approximately $32 of products from Stampin’ Up!, plus materials and step-by-step instructions from me to make four projects.  (I also provide ideas for bonus projects.)  The price of the class includes the stamp set for the first month.  The projects for this class are exclusive.  I do not share them on my blog or any other social media site.  I strive to design creative, beautiful projects using unique techniques.  For more details, contact me at tamihewlett@comcast.net.

Class cost:  $45 per month for clear mount stamps.  (For an additional $5 a month, I will provide you with double supplies so you can make the projects with a friend.)  If you would like this stamp set in Wood Mount, the price for the first month will be $53 to accommodate for the price difference.

Sign ups for this class are open until July 31, 2015.


For the first month of By the Tide Stamps In the Mail, you will receive the following products from Stampin’ Up! as part of the class cost to use on your projects:

129120  By the Tide clear mount stamps – $20.00

Basic Metal Buttons – Gold or Silver – $8.00 (I’m still deciding on this)

138413  Thick Baker’s Twine – Bermuda Bay – $3.50

Month 2 and 3 products will be announced at a later date.


“This is an unsolicited recommendation for Stamps In The  Mail by Tami Hewlett.   This is the third session of Stamps In The Mail that I have signed up for, and I can whole-heartedly say that I have not been disappointed.   Tami provides step by step tutorials that can be printed and kept forever.   Her tutorials are complete and easy to follow.   Tami is an artist, and when I follow her step by step directions,  I look like an artist too.   I have learned new techniques as well.

I also enjoy club sessions when a group of ladies stamp together, but there is definitely a lot to be said for stamping at home in my own space, at my best time and at a leisurely pace.

The monthly fee includes product from StampinUp that I would like to have anyway, so I get my moneys worth in more ways than one.

I’m sure I will continue to do Stamps In The Mail as long as Tami offers it.   I heartily recommend it.”

Stampin’ Up!’s Project Life Card Collections come with hundreds of pocket cards to use in your memory books!  There are collections for just about every occasion imaginable, the cards make it so easy to enhance your photos, add titles, and jot down key memories.  But have you tried using pocket cards to decorate your handmade greeting cards?  They’re also great for making a quick and easy card!

This pocket card may look familiar.  I recently used the same one to create one of my desktop calendars.  I really love this cute little bicycle, so I decided to  make it the focus of my quick and easy card.  I simply cut down the pocket card to a 3″ x  3″ square and rounded the corners.

Then, I matted it with some Bermuda Bay and adhered it to a background made with the new Brick Wall Textured Impression Embossing Folder!  I just adore this embossing folder!!!  I started with Whisper White card stock, then I sponged both Crushed Curry and Sahara Sand inks lightly over the tops of the bricks to highlight the edges and give the bricks an aged look.

I stamped my greeting with A Dozen Thoughts, and to really make it stand out, I layered coordinating colors of washi tape underneath the label.  The Calypso Coral washi tape is from the Let’s Get Away Accessory Pack, and the other two are from Cherry On Top Designer Washi Tape.  I cut out my label with a Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Die.

To add a little more dimension to my card, I added some Melon Mambo Candy Dots (Brights Collection) and a little bit of Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine.  (I unraveled a third of it so it wouldn’t be too bulky.)  Voila, done!!!
