Perfect spiced paisley pattern…

These are the make and take projects I did at my friend, Ruth’s, craft evening recently.  They’re a variation on the make and takes we made at my upline, Michelle’s, crafting day a little while back.  I loved them so much I just had to share…

I love the spiced paisley stamp set, available in the mini catalogue until the end of April 2012.  This stamp set is such great value at just £20.95 for a set of 7 stamps in wood mount, or £16.95 in clear mount. 

We stamped a random pattern over a piece of 12”x12” whisper white cardstock, and then with a little cutting and scoring, made a box and cards from it.  We stamped on the envelopes to make a complete matching set. And nothing went to waste – we even made a matching bookmark from the offcuts. 

Everyone did really well and were very proud of what they produced as they had taken a blank piece of card and turned it into something so pretty with just a little stamping, cutting and scoring. 

That’s what I love so much about Stampin’ Up!  Their products are so fabulous that they make it so easy to produce such great, professional results!  Thank you Stampin Up!
