What a fun stamp night!

So tonight was Stamp Night with Gina Taylor, my Stampin' Up! demo. What a great time! It was nice to see the ladies again and I can't wait to get to go again. I love playing with paper! :D

Here is a quick peek at what we made tonight!

The first is the card that we made using the Fresh Cuts stamp set and the Fresh Cut notes. I love the card! Not sure I love what *I* did with it but the coolness of the cutout is wicked awesome.

The second thing we made was a strawberry party favor. Ooh, how cute is this? I could die with the cuteness of it. And the strawberry stamp that we used pushed me over the edge of buying the Tart and Tangy stamp set. LOL I love strawberries! :D And she gave us her template for it. I am soo making one of these using my Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder. hee!

The last thing that we made is this SUPER CUTE AND FABULOUS All About Me journal/album. She showed us the Bind It All and OH MAN, I am sooooo getting this. I absolutely love notebooks and journals and albums. This is one awesome tool! Even my husband thought this project was cool! He usually just rolls his eyes and tries to tot up how much money I've spent on something. LOL!

Then we munched on some fabulous chocolate fondue with marshmallows and strawberries. YUM. And the most yummiest ever cheese fondue with french bread and crackers. I could have eaten that with a spoon! LOL! She served up some delicious Cosmos, too. hee! I may have placed a larger than intended order but I got pretty much all the things that I have on my wish list (well except for a few stamp sets but I'm not dying for those....YET.)

And finally, I have a card that I made here at home. Sure, it pales in comparison to all the other fun projects that I got to make today, but I had fun! I bought this stamp today at Big Lots...LOL I loved the little stick figures and it reminded me of my friend and me...so I had to have it. :D I used SU! cardstock, DCWV paper, a flower punch that I doodled on and stuck a rhinestone in the middle. And I cut out my girlies with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities and matted it on a scalloped Nesties circle and doodled around both of those. What can I say? I was in a doodling mood. Heh! The leaves for the flower are one of those Michael's Brides flowers that I colored with a copic marker and cut apart and stuck on the back of the punched flower. :) It was colored with my Copic markers. I wrote on the Friends 4-ever part because I didn't have an appropriate stamp and I was feeling lazy and didn't want to search and search for one that would fit right on it.

Whew. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for stopping by today! Hopefully I'll have some stamp time this weekend to play with my new stuff that I bought at the stamping store today. :D

i'm really impressed that you just wrote your sentiment on your card....i'm a wuss and therefore i'd totally mess it up, besides, my handwriting has never been as ace as yours

Sounds like you had a blast? I love it when husbands are stupid-slapped by what can be done with paper. The Fresh Cuts card is WOW...although it is giving me that 2nd glass of wine don't go for a third spinning sensation.
