A customer wanted a Hostess Party during the Sale-A-Bration time and we could only manage date on Friday, March 30th (the day before SAB ends)
Yes I've had Hostess Parties before, but never at anyone's home...always at my home. It was quite an adventure too! It was 2 hours away and I was recovering from a very bad cold and 7 people who are "seasoned" stampers! What to do, what to do???
Here is what I came up with in the blindness and fogginess of my cold!
Card #1 Bird
Stamp Set: Language of Friendship
Cardstock: Lucky Limeade & Pool Party (2012-13 In Colors), DSP Everyday Enchantment (SAB)
Ink: We actually used Black Stazon on the bird to give it a pop, but in this picture I used Pool Party and Lucky Limeade
Punches: Boho Punch, Bird Punch
Accessories: Dimensionals (for the wing and the flower with the brad in it), snail, Lucky Limeade ribbon (SAB) Brad (SAB)
Card #2 Vanilla Embossing Powder
Stamp Set: Oval All, Mixed Bunch
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Punch Blossom, Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Chocolate Chip Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Neutral Brad, Rhinestone, Dimensionals, Vanilla Embossing Powder (page 35 of the Occasions Mini) Stripes Textured Impressions
Card #3 CASED from Patty Bennett. Check out here blog here and watch the video on how to create this card.
Ok my blog is acting weird, I can't get my pictures to center! Oh well, here we go with the recipe for this card:
Stamp Set: Elementary Elegance (SAB)
Cardstock: DSP Everyday Enchantment (SAB), Poppy Parade (for the scallop and the tag), Very Vanilla.
Ink: Poppy Parade
Accessories: Scallop trim border punch, deecorative Label punch, curly label punch, two tag Bigz, 1 3/4" scallop circle XL, Calypso Coral Ribbon (SAB), Embosslits Beautfiul Wings (inside of card)
I am embarrassed to say I do not know who I CASED this from! If it is you or you know who it belongs to, please let me know so I can give you credit.
Sadly I had to make two of these recently.
Let me tell you that I first tried watercoloring on watercolor paper but the Black Stazon did not adhere like I preferred so I went to Very Vanilla Cardstock instead.
Stamps: Hope for Comfort (retired), Upsy Daisey
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Island Indigo (current In Color), Basic Black
Inks: Black Stazon, Baja Breeze (top), Marina Mist (middle), Island Indigo (bottom)
