Convention Make & Takes

During convention we get to make some really fun projects..... I'll show you a few today and more tomorrow... This first card is really pretty... and simple to make. It's a 3X3 card and using a 2 1/2" circle template we sponged Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz classic
inks. Then using the stamp from "Just Believe" we stamped in Early Espresso Ink, stamped off and then stamped on the card. Again using another stamp from the "Just Believe" set, we stamped the greeting in Early Espresso and stamped in the circle and over the flower image.

The next project is really cute. There are three 3X3 cards and a holder made from a Small Open-End Whisper White envelope. We cut the envelope across a long edge, then licked the flap to close the envelope. We folded the envelope in half, then using a 1" circle punch, we punched in the center of each square of the fold at the top to easily remove the cards and envelopes that will be put inside. This project is using a new single stamp "So Many Thanks". You can see that we used the Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp... the work Thanks is colored in Marina Mist, the hearts in Real Red and the "so much" in Daffodil Delight. The greeting attached to the envelope is set up on dimensionals, so then we threaded a piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4" grosgrain ribbon through and around and tied in a bow. Pretty cute, huh?

This next card is really simple. The stamp set used is "Paisley Prints" and the "thanks" is from the So Many Thanks single stamp used above...
We pierced holes at the top of the Peach Parfait strip and attached both the Peach Parfait and the Pear Pizzazz cardstock to the Soft Suede Cardstock base. Using the Paisley Prints stamp set, we stamped the heart using Versa Mark onto Pretty in Pink cardstock and punched out using the Full Heart Punch. The heart is attached to the card with dimensionals. A little flower punched with the itty bitty shapes punch was attached using a mini glue dot and a small adhesive backed pearl. Also the word "thanks" from the So Many Thanks stamp set was inked with a marker and stamped onto whisper white card stock and punched out using the Jewelry Tag Punch. The tag was attached with a mini glue dot along with a bow tied with Linen Thread.

Have a Good Day
