Love & Affection Stamp-a-Stack All Day Event

Two weeks ago, I held my quarterly Stamp-a-Stack event. An All Day event to come together and craft at your own pace.

There are six stations where you make duplicate cards using the kit pack included and by the end of the day, the ladies go home having made, or in some cases, prepared … 24 greetings cards. I say prepared as some choose to do all the stamping and die cutting, so that they can have another crafty get together with their friends to do the assembly … this leaves more time for chatting and enjoying delicious cakes.

Each table offers a different design and style to hopefully please everyone with something they will like.

This first table was based on a card from a recent class using the Touches of Texture stamp set. A gorgeous set with some wonderfully simple images that offer a sense of grunge. 

Get Well Soon cards are needed when we least expect them, so to have a few made up to turn to, is always a good thing and this single Wood Stamp is a gorgeous one to change up and down making use of different patterned papers for the bowl. 

Weather together is a stamp set that so many had over looked, but it's versatility is endless and should therefore be allowed house space on your shelf. 

It's not so easy to see here, but I've use a strip of the gold spotty washi Tape from the Love & Affection Suite just beneath the sentiment banner to give a gentle lift. I just adore the sentiments in this set.

Jar of Love is a gorgeous set that reminds me of another set we had a while back. I wanted this card to not be quite so pretty pretty, so that it could be used for a male Birthday, should the need arise. I think I achieved it …. just. 

This next card was inspired by a swap that I received on the Incentive Trip from Susie Wood, a fellow Demonstrator. I loved how she had used a rather bold print that would often put some off, in a small way, giving great clout in colour to this card. 

I saw a card just like this on the swaps board whilst onboard, but sadly have no idea who it was that created it. The person who had previously designed it, had a dark background with the sentiment stamped and embossed with the gorgeous Copper Embossing Powder. I loved the layout of this card. 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what we recently made. They are fun days shared and I look forward to holding my next, which will be of a Christmas theme on both 24th September and 1st October. You can find out more and RSVP to either of these events HERE

All of these products can be purchased through my online store, but remember to use my Club Code at check out to receive a little gift from me. 

Enjoy your weekend
