Today I am going to tell you about my very first Stampin' Up party I facilitated with a friend of mine as the hostess. For this class I used the entire suite of Clour Theory products: Clour Theory Cardstock, Colour Theory card pack, Colour Theory Desginer Series Paper, Colourful Seasons Bundle, Glitter Enamel Dots. After considering a number of options, I decided to used the cards in the memories & more card pack as the main element in each designs. Keeping the four seasons as a theme in mind, I needed to come up with a set of designs that weren't too complicated as there were going to be many first time crafters at the party.
for the first set of designs, I used the note card and & envelope pack. The note cards are the perfect size for the smaller cards in the card pack. One design for each seasons, I created four samples using a very simple layout, which included a card from the card pack, a back panel, and a slim banner placed underneath. To decorate, used some thinlit dies appropriate for each season, e.g: the beach chairs for summer and snowflakes for winter and so on. Another element that stayed the same in each cards are the labels with the greeting. While each card front looked a little different, the common elements tied them all together.
The second set of designs, I used a standard size card, with the larger card in the card stack. Instead of using the back panel as a frame for the card front, I made it just a little smaller than the card base, giving it more surface area for some background stamping. I stamped the background with images appropriate for the season. E.g: cherry blossoms for the spring card. To decorate, I used the beach chair again, but just one this time, and a circled punched label with a greeting, finishing it off with some gold threads at the bottom of the label.
