Vendor Fair with Stampin' Up!

I participted in the Panther Trace Vendor Fair this past weekend.  There was a great crowd of people that came by to check out my Stampin' Up! table and the cards and projects. I had a great time; here are some of the photos from the event.
My holiday goodies; Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  Do you like how I packaged the candy cane rods in a clear bag and tied it shut with a Christmas tag using the Label Collection Framelits and the Scentsational Season Bundle?!  
Easter is right around the corner, so I had some projects on display that go perfect for Spring!
A close up of my table; tons and tons of stuff on display; I just couldn't decide what not to bring. LoL! 

Here is my door prize that I was having a drawing for. There is a reusable shopping bag, stamp set, clear block, and two ink pads included.
I had so much fun at this Vendor Fair and happy to share my love of stamping and creating with others. 

Happy Stamping,
Kari

Here are the 3 projects we made in February Stamp Club.  The first card is using the Feeling Sentimental stamp set (FREE in the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and the Color Spritzer Tool.


The Color Spritzer Tool creates a splattered look with your favorite Stampin' Write Marker.  It uses air to mist ink from the marker onto your project.  It creates some great texture and effect.  I used the Early Espresso color and sprayed it onto my Crumb Cake card base and the Very Vanilla cardstock with my stamped image. 

The second card is made using the By The Tide stamp set, from the 2013 Spring Catalog.  I love using these colors together!  Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Baja Breeze.  They are the perfect combination for a "beachy" themed card.  

The Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder is my FAVORITE embossing folder.  
 Use a sponge and Soft Suede ink to ink around the edges.

I cut the fish out and used Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the fish off the card.

I used the Two Tags Bigz die to create this small project and another FREE stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, Vintage Verses. 


I had fun with these February projects....stay tuned for March Stamp Club projects!

Happy Stamping,
Kari
