January Open House!

On Saturday, I had an Open House & it was great to see my crafty friends come & have some fun with stamps!

We made an easy card that I think is really lovely & I CASed it from a the Christmas card I received from Nicole Bonar.

Here are my two sample cards for the day:

Here are a couple of pics from the day:

First, we used the Confetti Emboss Folder in the Big Shot on either Melon Mambo or Mint Macaron cardstock. Next we cut out the banner from silver Glimmer Paper & stapled lengths of the Baker's Twine Combo Pack to it (this also comes in Melon Mambo or Mint Macaron twisted with black).

We used Tear & Tape to stick the banner to the centre of the embossed card & then stamped some Whisper White cardstock with the sentiment & sprinkles from the Party with Cake stamp set in a mix of Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron & Daffodil Delight inks.

Then we cut out the circle with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch & used Dimensionals to stick it over the banner & hide the staples. With more Tear & Tape, we fixed the Confetti Embossed card to the Whisper White card base. Inside the card, we used the Happy Birthday stamp & sprinkles stamps. And we finished off with some more sprinkles on the envelope. I would not have gotten through the day so well without my Stampin' Scrub! That thing is a life saver!!

Each of the girls used a different mix of ink colours & twine, so everyone's cards looked different.
