Some Makes To Share

I have a fair few projects that I have not yet shared here so over the next few posts I plan to share them and then with the lovely new Catalogue and Idea Book launching in July I will be sharing some sneak peeks including some super new colours that will be in our Stampin' Up! repertoire for the next 2 years and they are lovely.  To make way for all the lovely new things in the Catalogue and these lovely colours we will be losing some lovely old friends.  The retired list will be coming very shortly.

Well for now here are some recent and some not so recent makes.......

My treat 'CUP" swap for Telford Regional Training- How To

Long time no see and we'll leave that there.

On the 17th May it was the Stampin' Up! regional event where in excess of 300 demonstrators got together celebrated achievements, shared ideas and swapped projects and cards.

I do find making lots of the same thing a little boring and so I do tend to make a couple of different swaps. I tend to do some 3D swaps and then I start seeing them in my sleep I change to doing some cards, and this time was no different.

This is the 3D swap I did for Telford and the following photos will demonstrate how to make the little  treat cup.  So easy and all you need is a paper cup, plain, patterned it really is up to you.

Instructions are at the bottom of each picture  - you may want to click on each picture to enlarge (if your eyes are anything like mine?)

Here is the pretty pink version.  Melon Mambo is such a lovely bright cheerful colour and here its teamed with Basic Black and stamped on Naturals White.  A little bit of Silver Glimmer Paper to add some bling, topped off with a large Rhinestone.

These little treat cups would make lovely Wedding Favours, Baby Shower Treats, Children's party treats (filled with sweets!).  A masculine version would be nice  - ummm perhaps that's my next one to try?!

Back with some of the swaps I received.
