I made this for an upcoming craft fair. I used the Top Note die cut and various other die cuts. I also used some of the retired SU! designer paper that I've been hoarding. The other papers I used are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black and a little Barely Banana (behind the pumpkin to make his eyes, nose and mouth show up better). The base of each piece is chip board cut out with the Top Note die cut and then the dp over that. The ribbon that holds it all together came in a little pack from the "T" store. The scallops are cut out using die cut from another company. I hope SU! comes out with something like that soon!
As many of you have probably heard, Stampin' Up has changed the demonstrator agreement to add a few new rules that basically restrict us from mentioning competing company names or having links to competing companies on our blogs, email, ect. Which is fine with me because I am somewhat of a Stampin' Up snob. I have yet to find stamps or paper or many other products we sell that are better. I mean, SU!'s quality is great! Plus I do get a discount :) There are a lot of demonstrators that are upset about it, but it is their perogative to quit if they want. I can tell you that I won't be quitting any time soon. It just seems like good business to promote "my" business instead of sending people to the competitor. This will also explain why my blog looks a little different. I deleated my blog roll because, again we are not supposed to have links to other companies and I don't know what content might be put on someone else's blog. Maybe that's taking it to the extreme, but I wanted to be "safe". I may add another blog roll at a later date. There are several blogs that I read or look at just for inspiration. I hope that my blog is that for some of you. I promise to try to post a little more often than I have lately. Life has just been getting in the way of stamping and blogging. But I will try to do better.
I have started a new card making/paper crafting class at my local Leisure Center, so if any of you live in my area (Lexington, SC) and would like to attend, they will be held at the Lexington Leisure Center every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 10:00 to 12:00 and the cost is $15.00. That means my next class is THIS Saturday!!! I will post the cards that I created for this class over the next few days.
So, if you are still with me, sorry it was such a ramblin' post today! I get a little carried away sometimes :)
Until next time, Hugs and Happy Stampin'!
