It’s the 3rd Tuesday of the month so it was my turn to give the Tuesday Tutorial at Clear Dollar Stamps.
I’m decided to show different ways to make place cards for a party. But if you’re not having a party, they can be given as gifts! Or they can be used as both (then your guest goes home with something!) And don’t limit your imagination to Halloween because each of these can be easily used for Birthday, Christmas parties, graduation, etc…just change out the design and your ready for the next big event!
1) Catch the Bug Challenge - Today’s Challenge is an Animal Antics. Create a an Animal project and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps‘ challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by 10/22/11 at 6:00 AM EST to be entered a random drawing for three digi prize packs – seven (7) (using a Bugaboo image only), four (4), or two (2) using any image!
2) Stamptacular Sunday Challenge – Challenge #134 – You Choose! For this weeks challenge you will create any card or a project that your heart desires! Anything goes! Please be creative! Try something new! Maybe even create something you’ve never made before! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing!
All these projects were NEW to me. Never made anything like these before but I can tell you I will be making them AGAIN!! So much fun and so EASY!!
3) The Pink Elephant – Challenge 121(TPE121) – “Scoring”!! You just need to create a card/project using a “Scoring” technique. You can use either decorative scoring or scoring used to create a project (other than just a standard fold on a card!).
Well, this challenge was PERFECT! These project are all about scoring. You have to score the lines on the box so you can fold and know where to cut. And the place card is also scored. I just got my score-pal a week ago from Clear Dollar Stamps. LOVE it!! Wasn’t sure I would and almost didn’t get it. I have heard people complain about an other brand that the score tool is flimsy….NOT THIS ONE!! You have to be careful not to press to hard or you will cut through the paper. So happy I went with this brand.
