Here are the projects that my stamp club will be making tonight. The first project is a card featuring designer series paper from the 2013 Sale-a-Bration products. Sale-a-Bration starts tomorrow! It's the biggest sale that Stampin' Up! has every year. Free products with each $50 in merchandise ordered is just one of the sales. The others are for hosting a party and for signing up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. How would you like to choose from up to $156.50 in Stampin' Up! merchandise for only $99?
Anyway, here's the first card. I received a swap at convention this year made by fellow Demonstrator, Kathy Stanton. I loved how simple the layout was. I used Linen Thread instead of drawing the line, and added paper piercing around the edges. I've left off the greeting, but will have the stamp set, A Word for You available so the ladies can put what greeting they want on the card front.
This next card uses products from the new Spring Catalog. The paper is More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the small hearts come from the Hearts a Flutter Bundle. The greeting comes from one of the great Hostess Only stamp sets in the Annual Catalog, Wacky Wishes.
This last project is a blast from the past! When I attended my first SU! Convention back in 2002, we made a decorated gift bag that used the same idea. It's a lunch sack, covered with card stock both front and back. Super simple, and it makes for a nice, quick packaging.
Here I used the Jumbo Stampin' Around wheel, Baby Tees, inked onto a Basic Gray stamp pad. Each "tee" is then colored in using Stampin' Write Markers. The small ticket is from a new stamp set in the Spring Catalog called That's the Ticket.
Thanks again for stopping by.
