I’ve been a bit quiet the last week all because of the above picture! Stampin Up were at the Make It Show at Farnborough last weekend.
It’s a show that I’ve done for about 6 years now and I often hear how many crafters think it’s the best show in the south! There is lots of space around the stands so you can get around easily and it has the best of papercrafts and needlecrafts under one roof.
The very lovely Zoe Pierson ran three classes for me whilst on the stand the lovely Pip, Jan, Jane and Fiona were demonstrating our lovely kits and helping people with a free Make and Take. Here is the card that attendees could make on the Friday…
A simple watercoloured card using Blushing Bride and Pool Party combination. A colour wash background made using the Pool Party ink with the Aquapainters, the balloons were initially stamped in Pink Pirouette and the accent dots stamped in Blushing Bride. Some black strings and a sentiment and you are done.
I have to admit that whilst 99.9% of the time I would say to you stamp, then punch, I actually found it easier to punch and then stamp with these balloons. Try it and see what is easier for you….
On Saturday, this was the Make and Take card cased straight out of the Spring / Summer catalogue….
More watercolouring and the colours used on this are Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron. All topped off with a flick of Wink of Stella clear over the top for some sparkle 🙂
So, as you can imagine a lot of prep work before a big event and then collapsing afterwards, packing away again and then keeping in touch with everyone who wanted to hear from us. So if you are new around here, and only met us at the Make It Show – HELLO! Lovely to have you here.
I’ll be back soon with some more Stampin Up Creativity, so I look forward to seeing you again soon!
