Team Meeting Cards
Last week, we had our monthly Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator team meeting. In addition to business announcements and training, we always have a challenge and a Make & Take. This month’s challenge was to use a set you haven’t ever used or haven’t used for a long time. And the “make & take” was a shoebox swap. Most of us used the challenge as the swap. Liz was the only one who made two cards, and I forgot to take a picture of her challenge card (which was beautiful, of course. Everything Liz does is over the top gorgeous. She’s so creative.).
So here are the shoebox swap and “mostly” challenge cards. My team is so amazing!
This is Carol’s card. Look at how Carol used the Everyday Label Punch two ways to create the label and the background layer for it. So gorgeous! And I love the Black Rhinestone Jewels, don’t you? And the Christmas around the World Designer Series Paper is so beautiful, especially with this card.
This is Christy’s card. I love how she used the Stampin’ Blends with the You’re So Sweet stamp set. And did you notice the little Metallic Enamel Shape heart? So cute. There are two sneek peaks from the 2018 Occasions Catalog in this card – the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper with gold foil accents and the Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribon. Christy used the Pool Party Soild Baker’s Twine on her card, and it was lovely. I forgot to put my adhesive in my bag before the meeting (actually I did put it in the bag, but took it out to make something and forgot to put it back in), so I assembled my cards at home. I thought I had some of the Baker’s twine, but apparently I used it all. So when I got home and discovered I was out, the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon was a perfect substitute. You’re definitely going to want to add it to your first order from the new Occasions Catalog. It’s so beautiful. It wasn’t on my preorder list until I saw it. Then – WOW! Add it t your list now!
Here’s Liz’s Night in Bethlehem card.
How gorgeous is this one? Liz used two of the Bethlehem Edgelits Dies with the Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set to create this card. So beautiful! (Order the bundle now to save 10%. After January 2, the stamps and edgelits will still be available, but you’ll have to order them separately at the full price.)
The last card we made was mine. I used the Confetti Celebration stamp set for my card.
This card also used the Brusho Crystal Colour set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. Since I planned a week or more before the meeting, I had lots of extra packets available. (The night of the meeting, we had a few members who had to back out because of illness or holiday stress.) We tried a few different ways to use the Brusho with Watercolor Paper. I think our favorite was spritz first, then sprinkle the Brusho. After all the spritzing and sprinkling was dried, I added the sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink, then colored with a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker. I covered the marker with Clear Wink of Stella, then added a few Glitter Enamel Dots.
Sandy and Jennie couldn’t make it to the meeting, but here are their cards. (I’m so sad we couldn’t make them!)
Gorgeous, right? I love both of them. (Maybe one will do the make and take later this year!)
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
