So, finally, after almost three years, I had a little Stampin’ Up! get-together. Why did I wait so long? We had such a good time, and I had forgotten how much I loved creating projects, catching up with friends, and sharing my love of stamping!
We made three cute (IMHO) projects…two cards and a gift bag. Take a look!
Supplies: Hello, Lovely and Hardwood Stamp Sets; Soft Sky and Whisper White Cardstock, Island Indigo Marker; Watercolor Wonder DSP, Island Indigo Twine; Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon
I am loving the look of the Hardwood background stamp, using a dark shade of the cardstock color. I’ve seen a ton a cards made with this, and every one is gorgeous.
Supplies: Gorgeous Grunge, See Ya Later, and Banner Blast Stamp Sets; White Notecards; Whisper White and Summer Starfruit Cardstock; Coastal Cabana and Rich Razzleberry Markers; Banner Punch
I wanted to use a couple of my favorite Sale-a-Bration products in this card, so the See Ya Later and Banner Blast stamp sets, along with the Banner Punch, helped me whip this up in no time.
Supplies: Another Thank You (photopolymer) Stamp Set; Whisper White and Tangerine Tango Cardstock; Epic Day DSP; Pearls; Decorative Label and Bitty Butterfly Punches; Mini Clothespin; Tag a Bag; Linen Thread; Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon
I also wanted my friends to try stamping with the photopolymer stamps…I’m a little addicted, I have to admit. They cling to the block so well (I occasionally have trouble with the rubber “clear stamps” letting go just as I stamp something). The image is not quite as crisp, it seems to me, but it’s probably not noticeable to anyone but me!
So there’s what we made…along with lots of laughter, conversation, and creativity. Just a reminder that Sale-a-Bration ends March 31, so if you want to stock up on paper, stamps, or supplies, you’ll get FREE stamps or other supplies (like that nifty Banner Punch) with every $50 you order!
