Stampin' Up! Party

This past weekend I had some friends over for a Stampin' Up! Party. My rep Samantha Eshlemen lead us in creating two Easter crafts. None of my friends are into crafting like I am but I wanted to let them peek into my world. I also wanted to pay homage to the wonderful lady who single-handedly started me making cards and 3-D items.

Stampin' Up products are the bomb! Go to her website now! She is selling scented embossing powder!!! WHAT??? There's a few scents and a million possibilities! They also offer coordinating paper, ribbon, embellishments, dies, embossing folders, the list goes on and on. I didn't even mention the stamp sets. The most intricate and useful on the market. Shop here!

Here's what we made. I learned a few great tips.

1. Use post it notes to hold small dies and paper in place while cranking it through your die cutting tool

2. Innovative punch use - the bunny ears were made from a portion of a 5 petal flower punch!

3. Using post it notes to do masking with stamps. to get part of an image when needed. I usually use painters tape.


p.s. Check out one of my honored guest's blog about her time at the party...
