After COVID put the breaks on Social Stamping in Term 1, it was awesome to get back to it today. With the help of two other amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, we’ll be offering weekly sessions during Term 3.
We don’t reveal the cards before the session because we want it to be a surprise when you arrive to craft, but now that the first session is out of the way, let me share with you what we made today.
The first card design had a choice of colours. This won’t always be the case for cards we make, but this design was perfect for a pink or yellow flower, and since I couldn’t choose, I made both and let you choose your favourite.
Every card at Social Stamping classes comes with a high quality Stampin’ Up! envelope which you get to stamp in a coordinating design to the card.
This card used the Tasteful Textures stamp set and Nature’s Thoughts Dies. There was a little bit of fussy cutting for the flower, but everyone managed that beautifully!
One stamper today said how she enjoyed making a card with a ‘hello’ sentiment. I love ‘hello’ cards too as you can use them for so many occasions.
The second card on offer today had a butterfly theme. This style was a little more grungy with layers of stamping.
The butterfly is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set, the script words from the Very Versailles stamp set and the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. It’s always fun to mix stamp sets to get a totally new look. The swirly circle for the sentiment is from the Painted Labels Dies with a 1-3/4″ circle punch.
Ombre colour themes are a favourite of mine. This is Pool Party, Bermuda Bay & Pretty Peacock.
All of our stampers made two cards today for $13, which included a hot drink of their choice. The option is also there for one card and a drink for $10 if you want the express option to pop in & out.
The next session in on Monday 3rd August – we can’t wait to see you there. You can RSVP on the event on my Facebook page, or simply turn up at the cafe.
