Two friends of mine hosted a Stamping Extravaganza on Sunday afternoon and what an extravaganza it was! Picture a beautiful home in the country, delicious refreshments, gracious hosts and 24 ladies stamping away on a sunny Sunday afternoon. It was wonderful! A great big thank you to the co-hosts! You're the best! And another thank you to the ladies who came out for an afternoon of stamping and general merriment. A special thanks to those who came from out of town, and to those who were new to stamping.
The projects we made are shown above (picture them looking better photographed by a camera whiz using a spiffy light tent). Because many were new to stamping, I kept them fairly straightforward. We also made a gift box to put the paper in (lid - Bella Rose designer paper, bottom - Riding Hood Red, organza ribbon tied around). We made 3 of each design except the birds (2) and bear (1).
Bear: Under the Stars (I loved the squadron of mosquitoes diving in), Wow Flowers; Kraft, Handsome Hunter, Brocade Blue/Bordering Blue (ran out of former); Basic Black, Whisper White ink; Watercolour Wonder Crayons
Scalloped Oval: Oval All; Riding Hood Red Ink; Very Vanilla, So Saffron, RHR, Pumpkin Pie, cardstock, Washington Apple designer paper; Large Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch; Earth Elements brads, So Saffron marker
Birds: Branch Out, Sincere Salutations; Whisper White, textured Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip; Chocolate Chip, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point ink; buttons (assorted colours, corduroy also)
Pink Birthday: Priceless, Hugs and Wishes; Cameo Coral, Pirouette Pink, Baja Breeze ink; Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Pirouette Pink cardstock; Pretties half-back pearls and rhinestone brads (2 pearls, 1 brad per person), Top Note die
I'll be having an all-occasion stamping class myself this spring (just as soon as I can convince DH it's a good idea, or possibly sooner). I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for stopping by!
