Maui Stampers is my blog, and it’s also my Stampin’ Up! group name!
Crystal and I came back from convention loaded with ideas, inspiration and most of all, SWAPS! We wanted to share as much as we could, as quickly as we could, with the Maui Stampers who were unable to make the trip to Salt Lake. We put together a wild and crazy Stamp-a-palooza. I’ve shared a few of the projects but there are just too many to keep posting one at a time, and they’re all pretty simple since we were in production mode. Here are the rest, in no particular order:
This is Toil and Trouble with Teeny Tiny Wishes – it’s hard to see, but the black card base is embossed with the Stripes Embossing folder. That Vintage Button is filled with Black Glitter from the Holiday catalog and I am telling you, that stuff is GLITTERY!!! Mr. Maui Stamper woulda had a fit if I’d brought this out at home, but we were Some Where Else. Thank goodness.
Simply Sketched is a hostess set, and I think it’s a bit of a sleeper. The images are beautiful line art and the sentiments are things you need. I chose Pear Pizazz and Baked Brown Sugar for this sympathy card.
Gorgeous Grunge is another catalog sleeper – and it is SO MUCH FUN!! Just slap on that ink, baby!! There’s a little Witches Brew Washi on this card – Washi is translucent so you can get extra dimension by layering it over a stamped image. The greeting is Label Love – don’t miss the savings on that bundle! And yes, I hand-cut the sentiment to layer it. It’s not that hard 🙂
This last card uses Too Kind, one of the first sets I purchased from the new catalog. I’ve used it for so many things – those big, free form flowers are so versatile and easy to stamp. I do NOT use the Stamp-a-ma-jig on them, much as I love it – these are just Bash and Stamp images! Love that new Tags 4 You set in the Holiday catalog – you’ll see more of that, too. Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe are the perfect tone-on-tone combo.
And just for fun, here we are:
Stampers and guests! These are brave women – it was a little bit touch-and-go as Ms. Hurricane Flossie tried to rain on our parade. But neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Or stamping.
