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...
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!!!
