San Diego Pals Gathering Projects!!!

Last weekend, a group of about a dozen Stampin' Pretty Pals got together in San Diego to stamp, chat and enjoy lunch. I'm sharing the favors we were given as well as the projects we all completed during out fun time together.

Peggy Noe of Pretty Paper Cards gave each of us this lovely box filled with candy! They were arranged on a tiered server and looked so lovely together. She made use of those cute Tiny Treat Boxes from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. 

Next, Peggy created this lovely card for us to make and take. We got to use the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask to daub hearts all over the front of this card using ink. Peggy taught us how to make these "suede" flowers. They are wonderful and easy to make. They make an excellent decoration on tags, cards, packages, etc.

Shannon Jaramillo at EZ Peasy Cards designed this cute favor box, using the Fry Box Bigz L Die and the Big Shot. We used the circle shape from the Work of Art stamp set to stamp colorful dots all over the box before we assembled it. Isn't it cute? Imagine the possibilities.

Donna Kopenski at Crafty Cardmaker designed this note pad cover. We created out own pattern using Bordering Blooms and Flowering Flourishes stamp sets and Itty Bitty Punch Pack and Petite Petals punches.

Inside, there is a pocket for holding business cards, notes, etc. 

Linda Foster showed us how to "spritz" onto our stamp after it's inked for this watercolor look on watercolor paper. It looks so fancy, yet was fairly easy to create. I loved learning this new technique! The wreath is stamped in three stages from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set that is in the new Holiday Catalog, which goes live August 28th.

Linda Foster helped us create this JOYful card! Again we sponged the stripes using Dots and Stripes Decorative Mask set. Next we added three "joy" die cuts in Real Red that were layered together and topped with a Silver Foil "joy." The Wonderful Wreath Framelits from the Holiday Catalog.

Here is a look from the side. I love the 3-D effect here and how fancy it is with the silver on top. You could just use card stock, but this way it's over the top. The sentiment is from Endless Wishes, also available in the upcoming Holiday Catalog.

I'm pleased to show Karen Wilkinson's gift box (filled with tea bags). She gave one to each attendee. Karen is my friend and my downline. This was her first SU event and we really had a fun time.
