Demo Event Share (Part 2)

Hello Stamp Friends!

I'm back with the second half of the photos that I promised of the 3-D items that we made last weekend. In my last post, I shared the card that the hostess, Christin made. I mentioned that I'd be back with a picture of the matching envelope and box that she had for us to make. I LOVE this set!

Two other demonstrators made 3-D items. I love this adorable box made by Margaret. I love the way she decorated it. If you look closely, you will see that she decorated the circle around the window of the box with Rhinestones and the tag. I was so excited, because I won a set of these boxes in my door prize bag:)

Next is a gift card holder made by Becky. This was made using the new Envelope Punch Board. The sentiment on the front was made with a belly-band that slips over the closed gift card holder.

The envelope that holds the gift card is the smallest envelope on the punch board. The top of the envelope and corners on the holder were all punched using the top of the Envelope Punch Board:)

When we received the invite for this Demo Event, we were asked to make only Fall and Christmas projects. Christin wound up giving each of us these Halloween gifts. Aren't they great?

Last, I wanted to share how she decorate the Door Prize bags. Isn't this gorgeous? She is such a talented demonstrator. I felt like a kid in a candy shop in her house. There were displays everywhere you looked and I left there so inspired:)

Thank you so much, Christin and everyone that participated in this event. I had a great time with all of you and I look forward to doing it again in the Winter:)

Thank you for coming by today! I hope you are having a great weekend:)

Demo Event Share (Part 1)

Good Morning Stampers!

As promised, I have some cards to share with you today from a Demonstrator Event that I attended last weekend. I still need to take photos of the 3-D items, so I'm hoping to share them with you tomorrow.

This first card was made by the hostess, Christin. She also had a matching envelope, using the envelope liner framelits and a beautiful box made with the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes. I will share a picture of the whole ensemble in Part 2 of this Demo Event Share.

And last is my card...

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Harvest of Thanks
Paper: Summer Starfruit, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla & Sweater Weather DSP
Ink: Summer Starfruit Ink Pad & Chocolate Chip & Summer Starfruit Stampin' Write Markers
Other: Big Shot, Stripes Embossing Folder, Apothecary Art Framelits, Summer Starfruit 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Neutrals Candy Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals©

As with every card, I usually start by picking my colors using the Designer Series Paper. I didn't have any Crushed Curry ribbon, so after thinking for a minute, I realized that the Crushed Curry in the DSP looked like Summer Starfruit when I held a piece of the card stock up to it, so that is how I came up with the colors. 

I used the Summer Starfruit ink pad to stamp the "Grattitude" sentiment and then used the Stampin' Write Markers to stamp the main image. In hindsight, I realized I could have stamped it in Summer Starfruit and just went over the parts I wanted in Chocolate Chip and probably could have saved myself some time. I'm famous for doing things the hard way:), but that's how we learn, right?

The Chocolate Chip layer was embossed using the Stripes Embossing Folder and I only embossed the part without the DSP as I wanted the DSP to lay flat. I separated the Designer Series Paper from the embossed stripes with ribbon and used Stampin' Dimensionals© to pop up the main image and the sentiment. I finished it off with a few candy dots, one of my favorite new embellishments:)

Thanks so much for coming by today and I look forward to sharing the rest of the goodies I received at this event on my next post. 

Keep your eyes peeled, because I will be doing a Blog Candy Giveaway for my Stampin' Up! Anniversary, which is October 1st:)

Have a great day!!!
