Last night, I had the pleasure of working with some of the new demonstrators in my Power Of Positive Inking Team. If you are thinking you might like to be a demonstrator with my team, please, please just ask me for info. Next week , Stampin’ Up! is offering a deal for those who sign up before August 28th–an extra $25 worth of goodies in your Starter kit—Squeal!!
In any case, back to last night! We got together to chat a bit and stamp a few quick cards. I started with a REALLY quick card that I did with one of my clubs on Friday night. When I tell you this is quick, I am not kidding!!
This stamp set is a photopolymer set called Dotty Angles. I feel like Dotty Angles could have been my best friend if I lived int he 50s. Wouldn’t that be a great name??
I get so easily distracted!
You can’t really appreciate it in the photo but there are a few star sequins mixed in there. They are actually really easy to adhere. This is what I do: I have an old chop stick that I put a little Tombow Multipurpose glue (“green glue”) on the tip. I let it dry completely so that it is just tacky. I then use that to pick up my sequins right out of the container. I dab a very small dot of the green glue in various spots on the card (hiding anything I might need to hide–wink!) and place a sequin right on top.
SHOULD any glue oose out a bit (there is a very tiny hole in the sequin) , I let it dry and then take an adhesive remover it it when it is compleley dry. EASY!!!!!
I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Soft Suede for the inks and paper. Switch it out with a friend’s favorite colors or wedding themed colors, baby shower colors, holiday colors and you have yourself a custom REALLY easy card!
I have also done this card as really quick Christmas card! I will show you that when I can actually think about Christmas….but not today!
Today I am thinking about the end of the summer and a great STamp A Stack I have planned for Monday night. I hope you can make it! Check out the details and/or RSVP here.
I apologize for the wonky photos but here are samples of Monday nights’ cards:
(I can’t take credit for any of them. Found them all on Pinterest!—But I know what I like and these cards were perfect! )
Hope to see you Monday night but please RSVP before Sunday.
