Weekly Challenge: Flurry of Wishes No. 1


Hello, Crafters.

I have just had three really busy days and have enjoyed every minute of them!

Yesterday I did a workshop at a craft club in Epsom (about a 20 minute drive from here).  I was told there were about 12 people in the club but there would probably only be 7 - 8 turn up.

Imagine how thrilled I was when there were twelve ladies sitting round the table. It was a lovely, relaxed and friendly atmosphere and I couldn't have been made to feel more welcome.

Thank you, ladies, and I hope you enjoyed yesterday morning as much as I did. ☺

For this week's challenge, I have chosen the Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set which has a matching punch, the Snow Flurry. This punches out the two smallest snowflakes and the second to largest snowflake can be punched out using the Flower Medallion Punch.

This card was inspired by something I saw at Team Training on Sunday but I added my own spin to it. I used the landscape card as my make-n-take for yesterday morning's workshop.

I think both cards are attractive in their simplicity and they really don't need any explanation about how they were made.

The colours I've used for the landscape card are Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate and Pool Party and the portrait colours are Gumball Green (retired), Smoky Slate and Pool Party.

The two smallest snowflakes come as one stamp so they fit the punch easily. I have cut my stamp in half so I have two stamps. If I want to stamp them together, I can put both halves onto a clear block and join the "seam".

Important note: if you do this, it will make your guarantee from Stampin' Up! null and void!

Personally, I don't worry too much about this because I have total confidence in the quality of the stamps I really don't think I'll experience any problems with them.

As soon as I have posted my blog, I'm going to post the photographs of Sunday's swaps on my Photo Gallery page. I have acknowledged the person who made the project if she put her name on it!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.

JanB.
