When I first started Karma Cards, I wanted to try and make every effort to try and do as much as I could. The last year I wasn’t able to to as much charitable work as I hoped to, so this year I made it a resolution to schedule more charity card workshops.
I had done a Karma Cards class over the Christmas holidays, and it was a great success! My group donated almost 20 pounds of food for the Extended Hands food bank, and I wanted to make sure that I kept that initiative going after the holidays. I hosted another Karma Cards card making charity workshop this past weekend, and was able to collect both food and monetary donation for the Extended Hands Food Bank; a non-profit food bank in my area. For my workshops, I donate all the materials and time to prepare, and I ask that attendee’s bring, in lieu of a class fee, either 6 non-perishable food items (like high protein items, baby formula or diapers) or a cash donation, 100% of which goes to the food bank, of $12 per person. We all made 3 cards each, and I was able to collect a sizable box of food for donation to the food bank.

It’s that time again! Each year Stampin Up has a great promotion where you can earn FREE product for every $60 you spend. And the selection you can choose from is AWESOME, from photopolymer stamps, to foiled vellum to Project Life, the choices are gorgeous!
For this project I chose to use the ‘two-step’ photopolymer set “What I Love” that I earned for free with a $60 purchase.
A ‘two-step’ stamp is one that has multiple stamp images that layer together to make a single image. I love that Stampin Up creates the tabs you see in the video that really help with placement to make sure that you get a proper stamped imaged every time!
Here is my video tutorial on how to make the project – I hope you like it!
To follow along, here are the measurements for the card stock & supplies you will need to create this project at home:
so saffron 4.25 x 11, scored at 5.5 to make an A2 card base

It’s been a busy few weeks for me – I have had three very successful workshops that featured a card made with the Home For Christmas designer series paper from Stampin Up. I LOVED the vintage retro look of the pattered paper and I knew I had to use the paper in a workshop! The fun sentiment was stamped with the Cozy Christmas stamp set, once in Real Red, then again in Mossy Meadow. I cut the ‘season’ word out of the first stamped image then adhered it to the mossy meadow image using some dimensionals after I punched the mossy meadow image out using the 2.5″ circle punch and finally attached that to the doily using my tombow.
I created tags based on a pin I found, and two cards: this is my favorite card that we made. I was so happy with how it turned out that I will be using these for my Christmas card list this year too 😛

Once I got started coloring with my new markers I had to try every color I had! This card is made I made with the Blended Bloom image I colored using the Blendabilities markers in the Calypso Coral. I have said it before, but I love how these markers come in sets of 3, taking the guess work out of finding the right colors to make a proper gradient blend. One of hte other really cool benefits of these alcohol markers is that you can color on jsut about anything and the color does not come off! For this project, I used regular clear rhinestones and colored them with the lightest pumpkin pie blendability marker giving them that nice gold tint.
The top background is stamped in Gold metallic ink using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set – this is one of my go to stamp sets because it is so flexible and makes great backgrounds.

Of all the alcohol markers that Stampin Up has, Cherry Cobbler is my favorite color. It is such a rich yet vibrant color, almost regal like velvet 😉
I am hosting an Introduction to Alcohol Marker Coloring class this week, and here is the card the group will be making in the workshop. Each class participant will get a FREE pack of the Cherry Cobbler marker trio as part of their class fee too!
Here is the card:
