February's Open Stamping Time...

So we had a few people come over and play for Open Stamping Time. Here are a few card samples of some of the ones we worked on. This card used the set: Seeing Spots on page 108 in the catalog.

For this card we used the Party Hearty Set on page 39 in the catalog. We used some discontinued paper for the background, but this really does make a cute guy friendly card because of the colors.

This card used two sets from the catalog. The first one is: Inspired By Nature - and it is not in the catalog, but is on the dormant list and can still be purchased. The second set is: Priceless on page 121.

This card was made especially for a young ladie who likes fairy's and whimsicle things. We used black, her favorite color, but added some bright colored details and of course...glitter! The set we used was also the Priceless set on page 121 in the catalog.

And last, but not least... we used the Priceless set again (page 121) and also the matching Brass Template (page 186) to create some dry embossing. Dry embossing is a beautiful art, and is SOOO easy! I just wish that the details of this card showed up better in the picture so you could see it!

So if you have a certain stamp set, a tool, or technique that you want to use, play with, or learn, then join us on OPEN STAMPING days where we have a ball creating fabulous items. All my stamp sets, punches, ink pads, and scrap paper bins are available for your use.

Thinking about coming over??? Answer these questions...

1. I still have my last SU! purchase in the bag and haven't even looked at it.
2. I have stamp sets I've bought in the last six months and haven't even put them together yet.
3. I bought the ___________ (add in any tool or product name here), and don't even remember how to use it.
4. I haven't seen my stamping and scrapping friends in a couple of months.
5. I'm running out of ideas and just don't even know where to start!

This activity is especially for you if you can say any of the following are true! So the next OPEN STAMPING TIME will be during Spring Break on Monday, March 16th - so mark your calendars, reserve your babysitter now, and plan on taking an hour or two out of your day to come and play and get rejuvinated with paper crafting ideas! I hope to see you here!
