This past weekend I had the extraordinary opportunity to gather with a large group of fellow Stampin’ Up! representatives for a World Card Making Day event. The weekend was organized by Brian King and Pam Morris who entertained us all weekend with Make n Takes, Prize Patrols (!!!), new rubber stamping techniques, business tools and lots and LOTS of laughter. We also had a card swap and this is the card I swapped with others. More details on this beauty later.
At several intervals in the day this past weekend, we would find surprises for us at our seats – all made with Stampin’ Up! products. Here’s the collection of those surprises as well as the Make n Takes. The black Trick or Treat container on the bottom far right of the picture is one of my favorites. It was made with our Fry Box Bigz L die and was filled with candy corn – – which I devoured immediately so it’s now empty. Tee hee. But this cute little vessel is great for candy, trail mix, small gifts, etc.
The chevron Trick or Treat bag with mini clothespin was my favorite Make n Take. With just three quick scores, we made this 3D gusseted bag with one of our flat Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags. Three dimensional or flat, these bags are CUTE!!! I will definitely be making more of these for the holidays.
Now for my wreath swap card above – –
The wreath is made with the pinecone stamp from Ornamental Pine. I punched a 1-1/4″ circle out of a sticky note and used the circle as a mask to keep the center of the wreath void of ink. I stamped the pinecone around the mask in intervals of Lost Lagoon and Old Olive. I followed up with a little bling by using Iridescent Embossing powder on just the Lost Lagoon images.
Using stamp set Endless Wishes, I stamped “Merry Christmas” at the bottom of the card. Ornamental Pines has its own “Merry Christmas” greeting stamp but I chose the more whimsical look from Endless Wishes for this project.
I finished off the card with the Lost Lagoon Silk Taffeta Ribbon featured in our Holiday Catalog. It’s lightweight which makes it easy to tie – and the sheen is beautiful!
I finished off the card by mounting it on a Lost Lagoon cardstock base.
Believe it or not, this is a super easy card to make. And what I like about the design is that it’s a different and unexpected image from this stamp set.
