Marti was the hostess for this meeting.
Marti spoiled us with quiches and homemade apple juice.
The first project that we made was a picture frame.
We used the chalkboard technique.
We stamped with versa mark to add the white embossing powder.
After all the white embossing powder was on the paper, we then heated it one time to emboss everything.
Next we took sponges and white craft ink to smudge the paper in places to look like eraser marks on a chalkboard.
The banner along the top was made with the petite curly label punch (available free during Sale-A-Bration).
(all Stampin Up products unless otherwise stated)
We made 2 other cards.
We used the spritzer tool technique on both cards.
This card used the "By the Tide" set from the spring catalog.
We also made a 3 x 3 card using a Sale-A-Bration set "Vintage Verses"
The 2 cards below were cards that I made for everyone.
This first card I used the stamp set from the March Paper Pumpkin kit.(sign up for Paper Pumpkin HERE)
Very quick easy and simple.
(Less is More concept)
This card is a 3 x 3 card and I used the Madison Ave DSP along with the set.
The button for the flower is also from the Madison Ave button and ribbon set.
All these items were free during Sale-a-Bration which ended Mar 22nd.
Have I mentioned how I love Sale-A-Bration? It is the best promotion that Stampin' Up has.
For every $50.00 you spend before shipping and taxes, you get to pick an item from the Sale-A-Bration promo.
So if you spend $100.00 you get to pick 2 items etc.
Now we have to wait till next year for the next Sale-A-Bration event!
