Thank so much to the wonderful ladies who were able to attend my event… and Keith was on his best behaviour all afternoon.
Everyone received a little goodie bag on arrival with a lovely selection of things to play with.
The bag was decorated with the ‘Awesome Otters’, which is a Sale-A-Bration freebie, and I stamped and coloured it with our Stampin’ Blends.
The little strip on the bottom of the tag was cut from the ‘Simply Marbelous‘ DSP which is also free with a $90 purchase.
We had a wonderful afternoon crafting, chatting, eating, drinking and fundraising!
Our raffle raised an incredible $200 for the Mater ‘Chicks in Pink’ Breast Cancer Research and support. Thank you so much for your generous donations for a wonderful cause.
We made three projects using products from the brand new mini catalogue.
Amazing Silhouettes Bundle
This card was made using the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle.
The ‘Distinktive’ stamp makes it easy to stamp a beautiful image! There’s so many possibilities for this bundle.
I love the shadow effect behind the greeting too. It looks fantastic with a contrasting colour! The iridescent rhinestones add the finishing touch of bling.
Hello Ladybug Bundle
This card was made using the Hello Ladybug Bundle. I chose Pumpkin Pie as the background instead of the conventional red for the ladybug.
The stamp and matching punch make it so easy to create super cute cards in no time. I love the texture added with the new Hive 3D embossing folder.
Here’s a little tip, check that your stamp is inked up properly before stamping, watch it ‘soak’ up the ink and when stamping let the paper ‘soak’up all of the ink too. This will give you a bolder image.
Ranunculus Romance Bundle
We use the gorgeous Ranunculus Romance Bundle for this card. I love these background stamps! The whole set is so pretty. The new Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments are perfect for adding a finishing touch!
I chose Crumbcake for the card base and Pool Party as the second layer and Very Vanilla for the greeting strip.
I added texture by roughening up the edges and by using ribbon and dimensionals.
I had a wonderful display showcasing many new products!
Thanks to my friends Laura and Jackie for helping me fill the display board with their beautiful cards.
