While many of my stamping buddies were at the Annual Stampin' UP! convention in Salt Lake City, I was at home having classes and watching the convention sessions during the live streaming sessions. This first project is a stepped-up version of a card featured in the current Stampin' Success magazine for demonstrators. We made the basic version at our monthly meeting on Sunday.
This card features the Watercolor Wings stamp set. I love how versatile this set can be! There is even a matching set of Framelits. Colors used were Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Soft Suede.
The next project is a Project Life by Stampin' UP page that we did as a Make and Take on Saturday's scrapbooking class.
I love this smaller-sized page and find it a lot less intimidating than 12" x 12" layouts. I chose Smoky Slate Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals collection to fill the 4"x6" slot and 3"x4" slot. We heat embossed the "Congrats" from the Bravo stamp set, then added a few Bermuda Bay splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
To create the shaker element, I placed 2 pieces of window sheet together and adhered three of the sides with Washi Tape wrapped around the edges. I filled the shaker with sequins, then sealed the final edge with the Washi Tape. As a final step, I stamped "Woo-Hoo" from the Bravo stamp set with the White Stazon ink pad.
As I was watching the live streaming on Saturday, one of the presenters was demonstrating the White Stazon pad on a project. She mentioned that there was a little piece of plastic included in the package to spread the ink on the pad.
*****Insert a flurry of curse words here*****
I realized that as I had been preparing this project for my class that I threw this little spreader in the trash. UGH!!! So off I went to dig through the trash.....I found it! I hope you can learn from my mistake.
