Yesterday I had a stall and make and take card table at a local fundraiser in Thorndon, Suffolk. It was raising funds for the Alzheimer’s charity which is close to my heart as both my Dad and Mother-in-Law passed away from this dreadful disease.
The light box I received at onstage (a Stampin’ Up! event) came in handy to advertise the make and take. If you would like to know further information on how to attend onstage in November and celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th anniversary then please contact me.
A cute card for the make and take using the lovely Varied Vases stamp set and matching punch. This stamp set has outline and filler stamps and some lovely sentiments. And as with all new stamps and matching punches you can buy them as a bundle and save 10%!. The background stamp was Bokeh Dots which I love. A Black Marker was used to outline the image just to give some definition.
I also did a stepped up version of the card in new colours Gorgeous Grape and Balmy Blue. Also Lemon Lime Twist which is one of our in colours. The new Detailed Trio Punch, white bakers twine and some rhinstones finishes it off .
Stallholders were also asked to donate a raffle prize so I made a envelope using the Envelope Punch Board ( a tool I should use more often and it doesn’t just make envelopes) to put my Crafty Cream Tea voucher in. This was decorated with the Leaf punch, vellum and Love what you do stamp set. The limited addition statement of the heart sentiment which is now unavailable was perfect touch.
I am pleased to say a whopping £606 was raised which is fantastic!
Below is a list of the products I have used.
