Stamping Fundraiser!

by cathy on March 5, 2011

Okay, I know it’s been a while since I posted – and I have been meaning to post the results of the Stamping Fundraiser, but I’ve had a hectic few weeks so this last week I had to take a little “me” time! But here I am again, and with the results of  last Saturday’s fundraiser!

The fundraiser was a huge success, with $1546.00 being raised for the Salvation Army Australian Disaster Relief. I’d very much like to thank all the lovely ladies who attended, and for their valued support. A big thanks also to those who helped in any way, no matter how big or small, as it all helped to make the day a success.

The door entry included 4 Make & Take projects, a door prize ticket and afternoon tea. We also held a raffle and a silent auction of retired product generously donated by Stampin’ Up! (have I mentioned before how much I love Stampin’ Up!?)  :)  Anyway, here are the four projects…..

One of the first projects to be made was a Pillow Box Bucket made using Stampin’ Up!’s Pillow Box Die. I found a tutorial on Youtube. This one is made in retired Blue Bayou and Soft Sky cardstock, using the Scribble jumbo wheel and Blue Bayou ink, and Scribble This stamp set. I highlighted some of the Scribble pattern with a White Gel Pen.

This Easel Card was made using the Bliss Sale-a-Bration stamp set and Purely Pomegranate (retired), Groovy Guava (retired) and Sahara Sand cardstock….

The Greenhouse Garden card was made using Wild Wasabi, Rich Razzleberry and Confetti White cardstock. The flower images were stamped by first inking the stamp in Regal Rose ink, then lightly misting with water before stamping once and then twice before cleaning the stamp and re-inking. The bolder flowers were finished by 2 Step Stampin’  the flower’s centres in Rich Razzleberry ink and stamping the little flower from the set onto the centres in So Saffron ink. I was actually quite pleased the way this one turned out, as I had a difficult time trying to decide what colours to put with Wild Wasabi!

And last but not least here is the 6×6 Owl Page made using the Two Step Owl punch, and Woodgrain stamp set! Thanks again to everyone who contributed to the day!
