Stampin’ Up! has reserved the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal for the Managers Reception – we’re going to have the whole park to ourselves! WOW! I haven’t read the books so hubby and I watched the first three movies recently so that I’d at least know who some of the characters are! And I can’t wait to go on the roller coasters! I also made some swaps so that I can come home with lots of cards for inspiration for everyone. I have to give credit to my amazing husband – he helped me design and make them (80 in total!). I chose the new ‘Feeling Sentimental’ stamp set and hubby added the ‘Pretty Petites‘ for the ‘hello’ sentiment. Being from England himself, hubby has seen his fair share of the red phone booths in the UK. He then told me how some phone booths have the wires attached on the top, rather than under the ground, which is where he came up with the idea of adding the ‘hello’ to the wire. Brilliant. I should marry that man. Oh wait. I did. Whew! The red card stock was added with stampin’ dimensionals to add a bit of, well, dimension! I ran out of the red booths while I was putting the cards together on the plane today so I can some in half – sort of like the ‘spotlight technique‘. I quite liked how they turned out too. The embossing folder I used on the basic black card stock is ‘Fan Fare’.
The stamp sets we used are from the upcoming Sale-a-bration which begins January 22nd and I can’t wait! These stamps set, along with lots of other great products, are FREE with a min. purchase of $60! Everyone LOVES Sale-a-bration and I know we’re all anxious for it to begin. So on that note, here’s my sneak peak, which is also my card swap for Leadership:
I’ll post updates and photos, along with special annoucements during Leadership both here and on my Serene Stamper facebook page because I know we’re in for something FUNDERFUL!
