Believe it or not, I finally made my Make & Takes from the Stampin' Up! Convention just last night! The day at Convention that I was scheduled to do them I was EXHAUSTED for one thing, plus it was my last opportunity to take pictures of all the displays….AND I really turn into a mess when I stamp in a big group like that! Fortunately, I'm not the only demonstrator that I have heard of that suffers from that same condition! When I sit down, I feel like everyone else knows what to do but me and they are all doing it faster! So I have come to the conclusion that, if I know I have the materials at home, I should just wait and then enjoy solitary stamping! Brings back the memories of fun times at Convention, too!
Thanks So Much Card Pocket
This is a Small Open-End Envelope #107286 with the long side slit open so that small cards and envelopes can be inserted. I would show you the inside but I made a "slight" boo-boo with the circle punch (not reading the directions!). I can fix that later, but haven't yet! You can always fix things in papercrafting! The stamp is the single stamp, "So Many Thanks" #120173.
Some Things Have to Be Believed Card
They gave us a mask to use…the negative paper from cutting Circles #2 with the Big Shot….so we could sponge three colors of ink for the background and then stamp with the beautiful new set "Just Believe", page 109 in the catalog. This is a 3×3 card and Mini Square Whisper White envelope.
Thank You Watercolor Card
I loved making this card, the watercolor effect is so pretty, especially on the Watercolor Paper #105019. I think we don't use this watercolor paper often enough. I inked up the stamp from "Just Believe" using Stampin' Write Markers, spritzed it with water in a spray bottle (very lightly), then stamped it on the watercolor paper. Of course the Small Open-End Envelope got stamped, too!
Paisley Prints Heart Card
Putting the little Basic Pearl #119247 on the tiny flower punched with the flower in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack #118309 just makes this card, I think! Love the new pearls and rhinestones in the catalog!! The stamp set is Paisley Prints, which you will find in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog and the Paisley Party Stampin' Around wheel #120875 on the envelope.
Paisley Prints Pumpkin Card
I really loved making this pumpkin with the new set coming in the Holiday Mini Sept. 1st, Paisley Prints. The ribbon is just folded over with Mini Glue Dots to hold it and the wheel Paisley Party is used on the card and the bottom of the envelope.
Just for You Pouch
This pouch was real easy and so cute! Just punch a slot with the Word Window Punch and cut the flap to fit. Stamp the images from the Just Believe set and make the tiny cute cards to fit inside!
