2010 Stampin' Up! Regionals Perth - Make and Takes

Hi there,
Today's post features the Make and Takes we made at the Demonstrator's Stampin Up Regionals in September.  For Regionals all the Western Australian demonstrators have a get together for training purposes and included in the subscription is a new stamp set from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue and enough product to make four items. I was not a big fan of the stamp set we received "Every Moment" until I used it on the Make and Takes and now I love it. It is amazing how much the images come to life with a bit of water colouring, some spritzing, fabulous colour combinations, ribbon and pearls.
The first project is a little gift card. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the grass when I came home. I did not like how it turned out using the Scallop edge punch and changed the sentiment. We used the little butterfly on the back of the envelope.
The next item is a card.  We used a post it note mask on the flowers as we stamped them accross the card.  The flowers were coloured with markers and an aqua painter, then we used the Colour Spritzer to add more interest, ripped the top of the water colour paper, added a clip, ribbon and a pearl to the centre of one flower. 

Next we have a 6 x 6 Scrapbook page. 
Lastly we made a box using two Fancy Favour die cuts. The image was watercoloured and spritzed using the Soft Suede Marker. The tag is made from a 1 3/4" punched circle and trimmed back.
