Last night we had our monthly weSTAMP meeting! What a fun evening we had! If any of you want to join the fun we have at our weSTAMP meetings, please email me or give me a call. There are many rewards to being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, not to mention the awesome kit you get, and buying at a discount!
We always have a swap at our get togethers. I love showing them off here. This is what everyone came up with this month:
This card was made by Pam. She used the new stamp set from the Sale a Bration brochure. It was fun to see the new stamp in a card! LOVE the colors, I am partial to pink and brown! She did some embossing for the top layer of the cake to make it look like icing! Great card, Pam!
This card was made AND DESIGNED by Ginny! WOW, talk about multi talented! This is a pen holder, and on the top is a hole which held a gel pen for all of us. I still can’t believe she figured out how to make this pattern just envisioning it in her head! Thanks for sharing with us Ginny!
Linda made this darling card, using a technique that STILL confuses me! I know it is shown on SCS somewhere…… Linda agreed to do the 3-mn. demo and share with us how she made this card. I love the new DP she used, what a beautiful card! Thanks for the time you took to make this Linda!!!
This card was made by Adriana. She used some fun colors to put this together. She used the versa mark pad to make a “watermark” image using the new stamp set Stitched Exotics. Great design and balance, love how she carried out the paper piercing theme on the bottom that mimics the look around the big flower. Thanks Ada!!
Anne designed this birthday card, which can also be used as a birthday invitation. Isn’t the birthday blower so CUTE on this card? This is a fun stamp set to work with. I LOVE the bright colors on here. My son Brady went after this one right away! LOL Great card, Anne! I love kid ideas and needed some more to show.
This adorable treat pouch was made by Jessica. Oooh laaa laaaa….gotta have that paper now! What a fun way to package a treat! This will make an awesome Valentine’s Day treat, however, I’m not going to part with this one! The heart has crystal effects on it, for a glossy effect. Great job, Jessica! Thank you so much!
Kori came up with this idea. I really do love the colors on this one, too. There’s something about Purely Pomegranite and Black that is stunning. Love that wide satin ribbon, too, that is an attention grabber! Thanks for your beautiful card, Kori! I hope you can keep swapping! (Kori is our out-of-towner).
This is the Tic Tac card I came up with. I did a snowman version HERE and had so much fun with it, I decided to make a Valentine’s Day one, as well. I will include the recipe below, since I know exactly everything that went into it.
Stamp Set: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Cutie Pie DP, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Certainly Celery, Going Gray
Accessories: SU Punch (retired), Word Window Punch, Certainly Celery Brad, White Grosgrain Ribbon
Note: Dimensions of card opened up is 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.
This was the door prize made by Pam. Isn’t it adorable? Oh my goodness! I couldn’t believe how cute this was! It is made with coasters. Wish I would have won it…..lucky Ann was the winner!
Last but not least, this was the make and take we did. It is similar to a card I did earlier in the month for the card class at my church. You can see the card HERE. I just changed the background stamp to a current stamp set, which was Baroque Motifs. I also used Stampin’ Up glitter instead of Stickles, and changed the pattern from the DP Soft Sky series.
