Card Ministry

Hello Stampers!  Every month I run a card ministry at my church.  We meet in the morning to make cards and then again in the evening.  It is amazing how many cards we can crank out in one day!  Here are some of the ladies that helped out last week:

IMG_0664 (1)

IMG_0665 (1)We supply cards for the families who stay at the 3 Ronald McDonald Houses in the St. Louis area, we supply cards the the staff at the houses to send out to volunteers and those who donate, we make cards for our church to use and for all of the communities at our church, and we supply cards for the local Fischer House which is similar to a Ronald McDonald House except it is at the VA Hospital. 

If you are local, we would love for you to come help!  We meet the second Monday of the month!  Contact me if you would like some additional information!!

I will announce the class on the 15th of the month.  You will have 10 days to register for the class.   I will order the product, prep the consumables, and begin shipping the kits out to you by the 10th.  

There will be multiple purchase options each month, depending on the supplies you need.  You may also make substitutions if you already own the products in the kit.

My first kit will feature the Waterfront stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

Waterfront

I have designed five cards using this stamp set.  You have three ordering options:

Option 1 - $38.00  Includes: Waterfront photopolymer stamp set, 15 yards of Linen thread, 5 envelopes, FREE supplies to make all 5 projects, a pdf of step by step directions and dimensions, and an exclusive online class video walking you through making each project, that you can watch as many times as you like!  ($30 if you are local and will be picking up your kit)

Option 2 - $54.00  Includes: Waterfront photopolymer stamp set, 15 yards of Linen thread, 2 stamp pads in the colors of your choice, 5 envelopes, FREE supplies to make all 5 projects, a pdf of step by step directions and dimensions, and an exclusive online class video walking you through making each project that you can watch as many times as you like!  ($46 if you are local and will be picking up your kit)

If you are choosing option 2, email me at dina@inkinwithdink.com and tell me the two stamp pad colors you choose.  

If you already own the Waterfront stamp set, you may substitute another stamp set of the same price.  E-mail me directly after payment has been made and tell me the alternate set.

Valentine's Day card

Hello Stampers!  My youngest daughter was home from college this weekend so I was able to give her the Valentine's Day card I made her.  

She LOVES elephants, so I always try to incorporate an elephant in her cards!  This year I just had to use the A Little Wild stamp set!  The little animal butts in this set are so cute!!

Here is the card that I made her:

IMG_0639 When you open up the card, the backside of the elephant is there!  The elephant is actually attached with a thin strip of window sheet.  If you look closely you can see it under the elephant feet!  

I think she really liked it!  I hope you enjoy it too!  Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  Also let me know if you make Valentine's cards!  When you leave a comment your name will be put in a drawing for a free card every day!  Thanks for stopping by!
