Holiday event

Last Saturday I had my first Holiday event.  It was a nice event, and a lot of fun.  We made 4 cards (2 of each) and 2 gift card holders (2 each) and a 3D project. 

Here are the cards we made: I love the triple time stamping!  We used Snowflake Soiree which was a carry over from the catalog last year.  We stamped it in Soft Sky and Smoky Slate (both new colours this year) on whisper white card stock and used Soft Sky card stock.  Adding the finishing touch was the frosted finishes, giving it a bit of bling. 

 a new style that seems to be growing in popularity is the file folder card.  It uses the new Stampin up Envelope punch board.  They look so cute!  we used Island Indigo card stock, the DSP from the Winter Frost paper stack.  We added the Soft Sky seam binding ribbon. 

Another stamp that was in the carry over from last year, available online is called Evergreen.  I love the 2 step look on this card.  I stamped the tree in Always Artichoke then inked the layer stamp in the frost white shimmer paint (on the clearance rack).  I punched a star out of the silver glimmer paper and added some taffeta ribbon and ribbon slide (also from the clearance rack)

I love the window shaker card!  I first saw this when Stampin Up! showed it in the opening video for convention 2013.  It  is a standard size card.  and the shaker window uses whisper white card stock and a piece of window sheet.  The images stamped are the greeting from More Merry Messages (another carry over from last year) and the single star stamp.  I love that stamp-there are other possibilities with it.  It also uses the hot trend of washi tape.  I added some buttons (retired brights, and new brights) and some bling with the glimmer paper in red and gold and a basic gem in the center of the star.  It's a cute little fun card.

 I love these gift card holders!  the top note die is really cute.  There are multi layers, but it comes together rather nicely.  The colours of card stock used are whisper white, gumball green and cherry cobbler.  The DSP is from the seasons of style paper stack (in the new holiday catalog).  I used cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon and perfect polka dot embossing folder.  And the stamp set Very Merry Tags in the holiday catalog.  On the inside you can slide in a gift card or cash. 

This gift card holder is super cute!  It uses the Stampin' Up! pop n cuts base.  I layered some dsp (again from the season of style paper stack) and it just gives it a bit of colour.  I also used the single stamp for the tag and the  1/4" silver ribbon from the holiday catalog.  On the inside there is room for a gift card and sentiment as well.
This is too stinking cute!  We used the season of style paper stack and cut strips and curled them with a bone folder.  Then applied them to a Styrofoam wreath.  I love how it came out. I did add a topper to it.  I used the single star stamp and greeting from more merry messages.  It will look nice in the igloo.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you visit again.
