One of the stamp sets we got for going to convention was "Sweet Season", seemed to me like we got lots more sets this year, I know that I (not bragging) came home with more then years before (we get sets for awards night if we meet certain Stampin' Up! goals), now in my old age I am learning to pack better and didn't run out of room like in past years, where I was like "where am I putting all this stuff to get it home?"…ha!
Anyway I loved the saying in the set, and not just for the cute saying but the look of it, I like the writing and the printing together. Plus I used the house on a card stamp in a past post as well.
Cute eh? It works awesome with our punches, and it is "sugared sweet" for tags and what-nots.
Another of the sets that we got for going to convention was "Tree Trimmings", and I used the two sets together to make my card posted today.
This was actually one of the make n takes from convention, (I think that I added the white on the edges with the white craft pad, I don't remember them saying to do that).
I sat down today and cleaned up my work table and did some of them…not all though, some I just kept the cardstock and embellishments and they will be used on something else.
We are also using this set in my upcoming 10/10/20 Christmas card class.
Wanna see the card? I can stop me blabbering for a minute.
Paper: Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: White craft, Real Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip
Misc: 3/4" polka-dot grosgrain real red, clear rhinestone brads
If you look closely, I took the rhinestone out of the brad.
Here it is so you can see it better, sometimes I don't want the silver edge on the "bling". It is simple to do, not so nice on your fancy manicure but hey what we suffer for bling, is worth it. I just attached it with a mini glue dot.
Simply bend back the brad legs and bend back the little tiny prongs that are holding in the bling and it will pop out. Here is a regular brad and then the left over bent back piece that the bling came out of. Now I can be frugal and re-use things and I know all about being green, but I do not keep the brad left over metal, it goes in the trash. Just be careful when you bend back the little prongs that you don't scratch the back of the rhinestone as it will leave scratches which sometimes you can see from the front. That is why your fingernail works better then something metal…just be careful, I mean you wouldn't want to do a whole package but just once in a while ya know?
Give me a holler if you have any questions.
Have a great Friday and thanks for stopping in!
