Catalog Extravaganza Make-n-Take

About two weeks ago I held my New Catalog Extravaganza.  Everyone who attended had a great time (or they faked it really well!).  The food was great, too.  My friend Sue Trout catered it and my mom baked mini cherry cheesecakes.  (See the recipe in tomorrow's post.)

Today I'm sharing the make-n-take that we created at this event.

That strip of Strawberry Slush didn't sit still for the photo.  She's crooked!
Nothing too fancy about this card except that I punched an extra Daffodil Delight Artisan Label, cut it in half, then layered it under the stamped image.  A few of my ladies commented that they forgot about employing that easy technique.  We all need reminders now and then!

I could imagine using this card layout for other types of cards.   A few of my customers needed a baby card, so they used the "cutest baby ever" stamp with a different designer series paper to make a really cute card.  I'll try to find a photo of that card soon.

Stamps: Label Love
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Island Indigo
Accessories: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic embossing folder, Artisan Label punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

The UPS man delivered the orders from my New Catalog Extravaganza event yesterday. I am knee-deep sorting the orders now!

Happy Stamping!

Yum, those look yummy. I hope you treat your UPS person well. Looks like they had a real job bringing all the goodies to you. Love the versatility of your card as well.

Wow! That was some order! Your card is wonderful! I just used this stamp and punch the other day...should have layered it! The cheesecakes look delicious!
