More Open House Projects

Yesterday I showed you the project I demonstrated and gave to all of my guests. Today I have for you the two projects they all got to make. After a quick demonstration on how to use our new punches, clear mount stamps and the Big Shot, they each made the gift tag and Valentine's card.
Several of the guests had little to no stamp experience, so I made the projects fairly simple. Most of the card is self explanatory from looking at it. The heart on the card is from the New Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit in the Occassions Mini Catalog. It both cuts out the main heart shape and embosses little hearts all over it at the same time.
The monkey is from the Fox & Friends Stamp Set. He is one of 7 lovely animals. I stamped him in Close to Cocoa and then colored in the face and belly with a Creamy Caramel Stampin' Write Marker. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. There are 24 sentiments in the stamp set. They all fit inside the Word Window Punch, which layers perfectly on the Modern Label Punch. Both projects use a piece of Bride Specialty Paper.
For the gift tag card we started with a piece of Textured Sahara Sand Cardstock. A few of the guests will need a little more practice with the Scallop Trim Corner Punch, but everyone had fun.
I picked up a little ribbon tip from Meg Loven. To help save on ribbon when making a little tassle, don't tie the ribbon in a knot. Instead tie a piece of linen thread arround the tails of the ribbon. Linen thread comes in longer pieces for less money than most of the ribbons. The hearts are from the I {Heart} Hearts Stamp Set in the Occassions Mini Catalog. All three of them come on one stamp and fit perfectly into the Heart to Heart Punch.
