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 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.
