At our last Inspiration Night I shared 5 projects that all featured the wonderful Suite Sentiments stamp set in our Occasions catalog. Each project also displayed one of our In 2015-1017 In Color Doilies.
I love creating classes such as this that shows the versatility of our fabulous products.
Let's take a closer look at each of these projects so you can see how awesome this stamp set is and how you can create such a variety of projects for so many different occasions with just one set.
This first project was made with our Baker's Box thinlit. I love this sweet frog with rosey cheeks. He is from the hostess set called Love You Lots and I think anyone receiving this box would certainly feel loved, especially cause its filled with yummy green gummy frogs.
I love the sentiment that says, "just like you, the best things in life are sweet". That sentiment perfectly expresses how I feel about my wonderful Stamped With Aloha ohana.
This next card is a new favorite fold called Triple Fold Standing Card. I was inspired to create this card after receiving a birthday card from my friend Kim Williams. You can see that card on Kim's blog by clicking here.
I love this fold and its super easy. You just take your 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of card stock and score it at 2", 3 1/8", 5 3/8" and 6 1/2".
This card uses two of the In Color Doilies and a double layer butterfly that is topped with a tiny punched flower from the Tree Builder Punch.
I love how Cathy (pictured on the left) used different color Doilies to make her card unique and special.
This next card uses our Basket Bunch Easter set but the card is not for Easter, but instead celebrates the blessing of friendships.
One of the blessings of being in Stampin' Up! for so many years is that I've been honored to see the birth of so many wonderful friendships that have blossomed and grown throughout the years.
The next project was an Easter Box created with our Clear Tiny Treat boxes. I just used the Doillie as a topper on a belly band that was accented with double layer jeweled flowers.
Darlene just made my night when she came up to me with her box and told me that normally she doesn't like to make 3 D projects but that she was super inspired after creating this simple little box and wanted me to know how much she loved it. Just seeing her beautiful smile made me so happy!
The final project was a favorite for many because we don't often create a lot of masculine cards and there is always a need for them.
This card was created by layering a couple of banner punched strips under neath the doily to create a medallion card. The new Under Ground elements DSP provided a colorful base for this masculine card.
I laughed when I overheard the conversation at the table as this card was being assembled.
Someone asked Roxy, "Who will you give this card to?" She quickly replied, "My Dad of course!" Then someone asked "Ann, how about you?" "Who will you give your Best Guy card to"?
Ann's replied, "Oh that's easy!" "My card is for Santa Claus!"
Ann is so much FUN. I just love her to pieces. I tell her often how much I love her laughter cause it is so contagious and always makes me smile and laugh.
Another Inspiration night is over and I'm working on planning the next one.
I love these nights so much. I love to see people greet one another who are genuinely happy to see one another and who look forward to a night of fun and creativity. Spending time with my ohana on evenings like this remind me of how blessed I am to do what I do. I so enjoy providing an atmosphere of inspiration, creativity, sharing and fellowship where we can all learn and grow together. It's a blessing knowing that these projects covered with suite sentiments will be used to brighten someone's day as we continue to spread a little aloha one stamp at a time.
