Sweet Stamps Open House

I spent Friday and Saturday at the Sweet Stamps Open House.  It was great fun seeing all the customers and playing with the new products.  We did make and takes and had snacks and caught up with old friends, and of course shopped.  Here is one of the wonderful make and takes we did using dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and stamps and ink from Sweet Stamps.

We started with the blue panel which was die cut with Cheery Lynn Designs largest die from the Scalloped Rectangle Card-Maker's Nesting Dies.  We embossed this panel with the fabulous new Snowflake Flurries XL embossing plate, running white dye ink over the raised areas.  Isn't  it beautiful?  Using the largest die from the Little Stackers French Flair Nesting dies, turning it on point, we cut the opening in the embossed panel as well as a second French Flair from white card stock.  Vellum was added to the back of the opening and the Sweet Stamps 8033 - Crystal Snowflake was stamped with Shades Aquamarine dye ink and heat embossed with Diamonds and Pearls embossing powder.  It really shimmers!  The background panel was created using Sweet Stamps 8022 - Tiny Snowflake Background stamped with Shades Tidal Wave dye ink.  Using a die from the Little Stackers Oval Nesting dies, we cut an oval in the center of the ornament as well as an oval from white card stock.  On the white card stock oval, we stamped 9103 - Snow Thanks with Tidal Wave dye ink, distressing the edges with the ink as well.  This was added to the card with pop dots for some dimension.   Next we added a hanger to the French Flair ornament, then adhered the white card stock French Flair to the back of it.  The last step was to stamp 8028 - Happy Winter in the opening on the ornament.  What a fabulous card with a wonderful little ornament enclosure.

Good Lord Sandy - You lost me on the first sentence. I can see I might have to go North to get some lessons. This is very beautiful!

I was happy to come to the open house and bought all these supplies to make more of the cards. Since mine are done for this year, will use it for next years cards. Easy to do and fast. Thanks for helping Stacy out. Always good to see you and all the other staff. Edna
