I love getting together with my Stampin’ Up!® friends. Each month, area Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators gather for a meeting. We discuss current Stampin’ Up!® promotions, news, and more. Then we have a challenge for the next month, a Make & Take, and, of course, snacks.
Donna, one of our group members, always makes a gorgeous and delicious baked goods. Tonight, her teapot shortbread cookies coordinated with her teabag holder for the “fancy fold” challenge this month. And she made everyone a teabag holder with a teabag. I chose Pomegranate Pizzazz Herbal Tea. Doesn’t that sound awesome? Each tea bag coordinated with the DSP in her project.
Isn’t that sweet? I wish I had taken a photo of her cookies before they were gone. They were so good and tasted great.
Our Make & Take Hostess was Judy Hockman. Judy should be teaching card classes. She did an awesome job of designing and explaining her card. And look at this card!
I’m not sure my photo does it justice, because it is so gorgeous. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to the Gather Together Bundle, because I have some Thanksgiving sets and I don’t send Thanksgiving cards. But this one is perfect for so many occasions, and Judy did some fun things with this bundle. I see it in my future!
First, not only does it use the Gather Together Stamp Set and Garther Leaves Dies (bundle to save 10%), she added the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack.
For fall, I usually go with Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry and other fall colors, but look at this palette – Pretty Peacock, Pool Party, Soft Suede, and Copper Foil. I love this combination, don’t you? But the fun doesn’t stop at the color palette.
The Gathered Leaves leaves dies are solid dies that also emboss. We added Celestial Copper Delicata Metallic Ink to the die with a Sponge Dauber before die-cutting the leaves with Pool Party and Pretty Peacock Cardstock. Look at the detail! This takes the die-cuts to a totally new level.
Judy Hockman, you did a fabulous job with this Make & Take! If Judy ever decides to hold classes, I’ll be the first to sign up. Her cards are always so elegant and beautiful, but they’re not so hard to create.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
