The theme of the DOstamperSTARS Camp-a-Rama was Stamping Through the Holidays. I'll begin with the Stampin' Up! halloween themed product suite called Howlstooth and Scaringbone.
DOstamperSTAR Jan Carlson immediately came to mind for this product line. Halloween is one of her favorite times of year and I knew she'd be up for designing some projects and a display.
We both had been eyeing the Toxic Treats Box in the 2012 Holiday Mini Catalog (pg 24). So Jan went to work to figure it out and came up with this...
She also created this card and additional display items too. Take a look...
Here's a close-up of the "black rhinestones". TIP: Just use a black permanent marker to color the rhinestones. What a great "spooky" touch!
Stamps: Toxic Treats (127898w or 127901c)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Tangerine Tango, Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP (126906)
Accessories: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade TIEF (127819), 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 1/2 Striped Satin Gray Ribbon (127837), Rhinestone Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals
Didn't she do a great job? Thanks goes out to Jan for all your help with designing, prepping and presenting at this event! I can ALWAYS count on her...she's the best!
Q: Some of you asked: "How can a long distance demonstrator participate in DOstamperSTARS meetings like this one?"
A: That's a good question. As you wouldn't be able to physically attend our get-togethers, there are other ways to be involved or to participate.
- Swapping! We swap at every meeting. Just send your swaps to me and I'll send them back to you after the meeting.
- Videos! I tape the presentations made at meetings and post them on our DOstamperSTARS Blog.
- Projects! Yes, you can receive the meeting projects too! I have a TO GO option available to anyone who can't make it.
So whether you're local (MN) or long distance, you too can participate in DOstamperSTARS get-togethers!
If you've been thinking about joining Stampin' Up!...now is a great time to join and receive a free Halloween Printer's Tray Project Kit! As always, the Stampin' Up! starter kit is bargain priced at $99.00
and you'll be able to join in the fun at our next get-together!
I look forward to welcoming you to our DOstamperSTARS!
