It’s Time to (en)Joy Your Presents

I am sharing with you today two more cards that were “make & take” projects from Inspire.Create.Share. 2015.

Ok, by a virtual showing of hands, how many of you actually use the Stamp-a-ma-jig?  I own one; haven’t used it much – I actually dislike using it.  But it never fails that every year at Convention (I’ve been to the last six) at least one of the make & take projects requires we use that little bugger and I always try to wing it without it.  As always it ends up a big ol’ mess.

So, here is the first card (yes, this is the one that required the Stamp-a-ma-jig):

I am always nervous for some reason when stamping in front of my fellow demonstrators so it is not always my best work, so I wanted to try to recreate it here at home.  Well, I didn’t have the circle punch (shockingly) and I didn’t have the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (oh man, seriously) so I had to improvise a little bit.  Here is what I came up with:

During the same make & take session we had a card project that used the same stamp set (Your Presents) that is available in the Holiday catalog that was used to make the two cards above, but we changed up the colors, used a greeting from a different stamp set and this was the result:

The purpose of this experiment — to demonstrate how a stamp set from the Holiday catalog can be used throughout the year, not just during the holiday season.  Awesome sauce!

Well, since I have been having issues with the supply list builder and it is 1:30 AM as I write this post, I am going to skip that step this evening.  If you have any questions about any of the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of these three cards, just ask me!

Thank you for stopping by my blog again today.  As always, I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.

Until next time, stamp on my friends,
Linda
