Future Demo Dates And A Wedding Card

Hi All

Hope you're all having a good week so far. We had another demo at Hobbycraft Basingstoke yesterday and got the ladies to work on 1 sheet wonder; making their own DSP and creating 6 tags using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and 2 tealight boxes using the Envelope Punch Board.  It was a good alternative to doing cards all the time but we did show them how to use the tags as toppers for cards, if they wanted to. It's been a great opportunity for us to generate more interest and chat to other crafters whilst in the store so we have booked 4 more dates for September and October! We will be there on the following Tuesday dates:

1st September 5pm - 7pm
22nd September 5pm - 7pm
6th October 10am - 12pm
13th October 10am - 12pm

We'll keep you updated of what we'll be doing once we've decided on projects. We hope to see you there!

Anyways, some of you may know that I made a Wedding pop up box card last week and posted a sneak peek on our Facebook page on Saturday. I had left over centura pearl card from die cutting flourishes and an extra sentiment I printed off the mac which I wanted to use up so here's what I came up with.


I used Blushing Bride for the orchid stamp from World of Dreams set. I then extended the Creative Expression frame die to fit the sentiment by placing the top cutting plate halfway, then moving the die along and running it through the Big Shot again. Adhered with foam pads to add height.

I used the Flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents set, which is my go to punch every time I have left over cards. It's even better with white/ivory cards as you can colour it after with the Stampin' markers! I thought it looked like four leaf clovers so decided to do a horse shoe shape with them.


I am really pleased with how this card turned out using leftover pieces. I am also entering this to the following challenges:

Thanks for looking, until next time, happy stampin'
