This year Stampin’ Up!’s make & takes were set up to resemble a workshop experience. The stamp set that we were given is from the upcoming Holiday Catalog and it’s called Your Presents. I am so excited with this stamp set as the possibilities to use this set is limitless! The one technique used on both cards is called the “Kissing Technique”. Very fun and one that I don’t often use!
This was a little extra bonus project, in the class called Product Spotlight/Gathering Place, we had a short demonstration on the Home for Christmas Suite (also from the upcoming Holiday Catalog). Then we moved over to some high tables were we created this little gem of a project. You can add this piece to the front of a card or even add a small envelope to the back and have a super cute gift card holder.
The last part of our class was heading into the Gathering Place to see the new products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. In the photo below, you will see three products. The top is a green box which uses the Gift Bag Punch Board (page 150 of the Annual Catalog). We were given instruction on how to use it as well as use the new Tear & Tape Adhesive (page 156 of the Annual Catalog). Next up is a new punch from the Holiday Catalog called Curvy Corner Trio Punch. This punch cuts 3 different shapes (i.e., 2 corners and a ribbon slide). The last project that we made is the banner. It uses the Banner Triple Punch (page 165 of the Annual Catalog), Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (page 157 of the Annual Catalog), Handheld Stapler (page 160 of the Annual Catalog), Greetings Thinlits (page 172 of the Annual Catalog), and last but not least two products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog that are SUPER fantastic! The Precision Base Plate is used along with the Big Shot that will assist you when using dies that are more detailed dies, giving you extra fine cuts. The other new product is the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. This is perfect to adhering small embellishments, glitter, and small paper cutouts to projects.
