Fun & Friends

A Stampin’ party + friends = FUN!

Many thanks to my wonderful hostess Colleen K., who once again hosted a fabulous Stampin’ party for 5 of her wonderful friends! ¬†I just love being with these ladies; they have such a terrific sense of humour ūüôā ¬†Besides having lots to talk about with the new products in the catalogue, we’ve all ‘been around’ a while, so we never run out of interesting things to talk about!

I’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome of these great ladies, Margaret Peters, to my team! ¬†Yes, Margaret couldn’t pass up the terrific deal of our Sale-A-Bration sign up offer; $195 in products for only $125! ¬† Plus the free business pack, and FREE ¬†Shipping!!

One of the new items that I demonstrated was the Big Shot Die Brush. ¬†Everyone was so wowed at how easily it is to use, and how quickly & effectively it removes all the tiny pieces of cardstock from our detailed dies, that it immediately went onto the order of everyone who didn’t already own one! ¬†I’m going to do a quick video showing how to use it; you really do need one of these Big Shot Die Brushes if you use detailed dies.

Another favourite was the Honeycomb Embellishments; they are just too precious!  We used them in one of the make & take cards:

Honeycomb Happiness

The Honeycomb Embellishment is perfect for topping off the ice cream cone!  This stamp set is called Рappropriately РHoneycomb Happiness, and is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration sets that you can earn for free with any $60 order.

We stamped the cones in Crumb Cake ink, then used the Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers to colour in the ice cream. ¬†The banner is stamped in Mint Macaron ink onto Whisper White cardstock; it and the Melon Mambo piece behind it were given banner tails using the Banner Triple Punch. ¬†The DSP behind the stamped panel is from the It’s My Party DSP Pack, and the card base is Mint Macaron card stock.

The other card we made uses the A Nice Cuppa stamp set and Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies:

A Nice Cuppa

The card base is Bermuda Bay cardstock, with a panel of Basic Gray cardstock layered with a piece of Have a Cuppa DSP. ¬†Isn’t that kettle design fabulous!? ¬†The kettle is die cut from Melon Mambo cardstock using the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies. ¬†We stamped the sentiment directly onto the kettle, and popped it up on the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. ¬†The ‘steam’ was die cut from Vellum cardstock; I think it’s cute that it looks like a heart, but can be used as steam, as well.

These 2 cards could definitely be ‘stepped up’ with more layers and embellishments, but for make & takes, where you want something not too difficult, and that won’t take a lot of time, these worked out perfectly.

Thank you again, Colleen for hosting such a wonderful party!
