I held my first stamp-a-stack on Saturday.
8 ladies attended and it was a great afternoon. I had christmas carols softly playing in the background (Boney M christmas cd – the best christmas cd there is in my opinion) although we didn’t actually notice the songs much over all the chatter :)
We made 8 cards (2 each of 4 designs). I asked the ladies which card was their favourite and the answers were pretty mixed actually, so I guess that means there was something for everyone.
This was a little gift card holder that we made.
I was inspired by one I saw on splitcoaststampers by Kelly Acheson. I just altered it a little.
The ladies loved it! I did have a few other sentiments for them to use too, just in case they didn’t like this one, but most of them used it, it’s so cute!
Stamps : Tags til christmas
Card : white, olive, espresso, crumb cake, in colour dsp (ret)
Ink : real red
Other : big shot, two tags die, polka dot ef., tasteful trim, square punch, square scallop punch, owl punch, pearls, celery ribbon (ret.)
For the owl eyes I coloured pearls with a black permanent marker. They look really great on the owl and are easier to stick on than a tiny black circle of card is.
I will show you the other cards we made over the next week.
After making all the cards we had a few Christmas treats for afternoon tea and chatted some more. I also had a little Christmas raffle and Chantel was the winner.
It was a really great day! Thanks ladies :)
