Well, I hope you had as great of a weekend as I did! I had relatives from the midwest and California in town for the weekend and so we did a lot of visiting and traveling around the Seattle area. This was the first time my hubby’s Grandma, Aunt, and Uncle had met our daughter Caitlin; so that was cool as well! Anyway, that kept me away from my computer and blogging a bit more than I was thinking – so, here I am trying to get caught back up. 🙂
I thought I’d share this cute treat bag we made at the Hispanic Night event at Convention. This is a free evening activity that is meant to help share some of the cultural differences that you sometimes see with Hispanic families and crafters here in the US. Its always a very interesting night and there were some AMAZING stamping demonstrations! And, then we got to stamp ourselves!
So, here is the project we made:
I loved the details like the paper pieced dress (we stamped the image a second time on Pool Party cardstock and then cut out the dress and glued it down onto the Whisper White image), the Silver glimmer paper behind the Apocathary Accents framelit piece, paper piercing the outline of the die cut shape using the matching Paper Piercing Pack, coloring with markers, and then the stamped and punched flowers on the bag! Just a couple details, right? 🙂
When we got to our table for the event that evening, this is what everyone had (so you can see the whole stamp set too!). It was the make and take kit, the stamp set, and a bingo sheet.
I have to admit I squealed out loud when I saw the stamp set because I had been eyeing this stamp set for a while because I loved the image of the girl and I thought that the Princess, the crown, and the flower stamps could be used by anyone – regardless of if they spoke Spanish or not. I just didn’t know anyone who would need a Quinceanera card (for those of you who aren’t familiar with Quinceanera, it is like a cross between a sweet 16 party –only at 15, a coming out event, and at the scale like a wedding! It’s a pretty big deal!). Anyway, I was so thankful that Stampin’ Up! gave us this set.
And then, to top off the evening, I got a bingo and won some Glimmer Paper, a Christmas stamp set, and some Stitched Satin Ribbon! How cool is that?! And if you can see, check out more of the amazing samples they had on display next to me on the display board.
If you are going to convention next year, I totally recommend going to Hispanic Night.
