I’m so excited for my Paper Adventures team to be participating in their first blog/FB hop!
We are delighted for Melissa Gifford to be joining us as a guest designer, as we had the pleasure of sitting with her at OnStage.
Thanks for joining us!!!
We’ve got a great theme today – cards/projects made using the stamp sets we got for our Prize Patrol.
What’s a Prize Patrol? Glad you asked! Prize Patrol is a wonderful part of each Stampin’ Up! event where you are allocated a colour/pattern/design and at key moments of the event, they choose one of those colours as the Prize Patrol winner. In recent events, every colour has been called, which means that we all go home with a lovely gift.
At OnStage, the gifts were all stamp sets that will appear in the 2017-2019 Annual Catalogue.
Across a table of 8, I think we got 6 different sets to take home – so lots of variety to share today!
Look for the link at the end of each blog or FB page to take you to the next creation. I’ll also post a full list at the bottom of this post in case you get lost.
I felt very lucky to receive the Ribbon of Courage stamp set as my Prize Patrol.
This set was designed by Patty Bennett to celebrate her sales milestone of $1 million! You can read her story here.
I know there are lots of crafters who are going to love this stamp set & coordinating framelits, and all that it represents.
For my swap, I have paired the stamp set with some of the beautiful patterns from the upcoming Fresh Florals DSP Stack.
I used the two pink tones from the new In Color Collection –
And Berry Burst…
To show my team a different type of card fold, I used a simple but effective design called a flip flop card, or a double fold card.
This is the top view…
The measurements for this style of card:
- Cut a card base (4-1/8″ x 8-1/4″), score at 5-7/8″
- DSP for base: 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″
- DSP for flap: -7/8″ x 2-1/8″
- Flap 2: 6″ x 3″, scored at 3″
- Flap 2 mat: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
Thanks again for being with us for our first team blog hop.
We hope to make this a regular event now that the team are sharing more of their projects online.
