Team Meeting Make and Takes – Christmas Card Inspiration

By | November 3, 2014

Half term is over – phew – back to porridge as my Dad says! I hope you had a great time whatever you got up to.

Just before we had half term, I held my team meeting. We like to swap cards so that we exchange ideas and see our different styles. Of course, we make a couple of cards too.

Here is my first one:
Stampin' Up Endless Wishes Masked area-001

It was quite an easy one to make. We just used sticky notes to mask off an area and then stamped various sized snowflakes from Endless Wishes. Stamp the large ones first, then the medium sized ones, and finally fill in the spaces with the smallest ones. I embellished the card with a few randomly placed sequins and then used a button from the Brights collection with a little bow in Gold Bakers Twine.

I must admit this card makes me a little sad, as I lost my ‘very merry’ the day of the class. It was a harsh lesson to learn as I must admit I’m not the tidiest of crafters, and I will now henceforth promise to tidy away after each project! I’ve emptied the bins and the hoover but very merry is very lost 🙁

Our second card was presented by my downline, Denise. I believe she may have cased the project but I’m not sure who the original creator was. We used aquapainters and watercolour paper to create the background.

Stampin' Up Festival of Trees Watercolour background-001

We also used the very popular Festival of Trees stamp set with the coordinating punch. It’s great and also has some fun tinsel and bauble stamps that you can decorate the trees with.  As it’s a photopolymer set, it’s also very easy to line up the stamps.
