Gifts for downline and friends

I made these tins for my downline and a few friends for convention. I bought the tins at a craft store and inside I put a Starbuck's gift card. They are pretty easy to decorate. I basically just copied a card I made for my July clubs. It is posted back on July 18th if you want to go check it out. I stamped the Elements of Style onto the Big shot die cut butterflies and then colored them with pretty in pink and certainly celery markers.

Elements of Style Butterfly

 


This is a card I did in all of my July classes.  I saw a similar card on the front of the Stampin' Up summer mini catalog and I just changed it up a little bit. I love pink and brown so I changed it to my favorite colors. I punched out the butterflies using the Big Shot butterfly die and then I stamped the Elements of Style on it and colored it with pretty in pink and celery markers. I tried to make it vintage looking so I distressed and sponged the edges.

 

 

 


Here is a close up of the ribbon. I just kind of accordion folded it but I didn't really try to make it uniform.

Cute little tin gift idea


I was organizing my stamp room a couple weeks ago and found a couple boxes full of these cute little tins that I bought several years back….amazing what you find when you start cleaning, huh? Anyway, my open house was coming up last week so I decided to use them as one of the make and take projects. I gave everyone a Peppermint Patty for inside and then on the top, we punched out some flowers with the flower punch and then stamped on the white ones with the Elements of Style set from the Stampin' Up summer mini. Then we colored it in with markers ( celery and pretty in pink) and sponged it a little to give it that aged look. This is a super quick and easy idea and I am sure these tins are at any arts and craft store in the wedding section probably.

Mostly Vintage Stencil

 

 

Here is a card I did for my downline swap. I used the new Mostly Vintage stencil from the Summer mini and sponged it with Taken with Teal. Then I stamped the Elements of Style swirls all around it. I distressed the paper a bit by ripping and sponging.

Cracked Glass spotlight….

 

 

This gorgeous card was made by my good friend Debbie Wilson.  I hosted a summer mini swap recently and this was Debbie's card.  I love this set already but her card made me love it even more! If you look really close you can see the cracked glass technique used there for the spotlight part.  Great job Debbie!

Elements of Style

 

I absolutely LOVE this stamp set. If you know me, you know I love the Vintage look and this set is perfect for that. I made this card for a swap I did with some fellow demonstrators. I aged the front piece by sponging it with creamy caramel and close to cocoa. I stamped the swirls in vanilla craft and then embossed them first though. Then I ripped,  distressed and sponged the front piece edges.  I stamped the flowers in close to cocoa and used Itty Bitty Backgrounds to add the splash of color.  For the back piece, I stamped more flowers in chocolate chip on those exposed corners.  The bird is stamped in chocolate chip and cut out and popped up with dimensionals.  I hope you like it.

Another card share from my friend Sam

 

 

Here is another card from my friend Sam using the Elements of Style set. I think that is my favorite set from the Summer mini. I just love it! Anything vintage is my style though. I hope there are lots and lots of vintage sets in the new catalog coming out in July.
