MANY THANKS...

Hello Dear Blogging Friends... I sincerely appreciate all your GET WELL WISHES sent during my recuperation from a recent back injury. Even though it was a rather simple injury (reaching, twisting and lifting a heavy box while at home), the pain was unbearable at times. Your comments, emails and cards were very encouraging. When I saw this stamp in the new "Celebrate the Everyday" Spring Catalog, I was inspired to make this card for YOU...

Sweet Sorbet

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY...

WCMD-1

 

Guests were warmly welcomed at every entrance...

WCMD-2

. . .

WCMD-3

Product displays were abundant...

WCMD-4

...with cards and 3-D projects...

WCMD-5

And many photos were taken...

WCMD-6

We even had MY DIGITAL STUDIO up and running...

WCMD-7

Demonstrators offered catalogs and product information

on their service tables...

WCMD-8

There were 58 Boxes - ALL IN A ROW!

(So many cards. So little time!)

WCMD-9

Stampers received a tally sheet to make their choices.

Their selections were then pulled from numbered dividers...

WCMD-10

They chose as many card sets or as few as they desired.

Each set was packed in it's own envelope...

WCMD-11

Six local demonstrators worked as a team assisting stampers...

WCMD-12

(Denise, Diane, Diana, Marlene, Linda & Rhonda)

. . .

From 9AM until 2PM they stamped...

WCMD-13

They barely noticed when we looked over their shoulders...

WCMD-14

What's a party without yummies???

WCMD-15

Anyone for fruit, pastry or candy???

WCMD-16

They must have enjoyed the day...

Because many asked if we had set a date for the spring event!

I remember opening my mailbox.  And there it was!

I opened it very carefully...

Then took a closer look...

I pulled the blue tissue back to peek inside...

Pp5

And piece-by-piece took everything out...

Pp6

What shall I make?  Let me think about it for awhile!!

Pp8

I'll make something with a little different twist.

ROSETTE...

You can make a rosette without the Rosette Bigz Die...

Sweet Essentials

o o o o o o o o o o

Sweet Essentials2

I used a piece of Designer Series Paper and the

Simply Scored Scoring Tool

122334


then I embellished it with a flower made with the

Blossom Party Original Die

115971

and topped it with a layer by the Boho Blossoms Punch.

119858

"MAKE A WISH" is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set

132085

o o o o o o o o o o

SUPPLIES & ACCESSORIES:  Sweet Essentials Stamp Set #132085-Wood / #126457-Clear, Brights Core'dinations Cardstock (Pumpkin Pie & Tempting Turquoise) #129953, Whisper White Cardstock #100730, Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (Pumpkin Pie) #130134, Basic Black Stampin' Pad #126980, Simply Scored Scoring Tool #122334, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine #113439, Boho Blossoms Punch #119858, Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246, Stampin' Dimensionals #104430, Whisper White Medium Envelope #107301.

DESIGN NOTE: In a previous post, I used the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die to make a rosette. However, the score lines on the Die are 1/2" apart so I decided to use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool because the lines are only 1/8" apart.  THE RESULTS: A skinny rosette!
