Bird Banter – In Telford
Todays fun card and tag uses the jolly Bird Banter stamp set from Stampin’ Up! It just makes me feel bright and silly. I know you could use soft colours and subtle styling but why would you when you can have such colourful fun.
I’m very excited today as I’m in Telford for the superb Stampin’ Up! weekend. Once you become a team member you get invited to a number of exclusive events and this is one of them. My team member Lexy is coming with me to this event which makes it even more special.
How wonderful it will be to give away my cards and tags. I have made 100 in total , 50 yellow tags and 50 red cards. I will give them away to fellow attendees in return for one of their own handmade items. It’s called “swapping” and is such fun. After “swapping” instead of taking home my 2 designs the tag and card I will actually return home with 100 totally different cards, tags, boxes or other items which I have swapped for one of my pretty Polly’s. It’s a fab way to make new friends and gain inspiration. I hope in turn my lovely bright birds will inspire those I give them away to.
Bird Banter – What’s happening at this weekend event?
So what else goes on this weekend? Well, I start with a “Crafternoon” tea party with fellow Pinkie team members on Friday. What could be better than a cream tea while crafting with mates from all over the UK? Marvellous.
What could be better? Well maybe Saturday …….. it will be a day of crafting with friends from all over Europe. We will get our hands on the brand new Stampin’ Up! catalogue and have an exclusive chance to order and buy the latest products before they hit the public market in June. Eeeeekkkkkk… the fun of being a Demo and team member….. too exciting for words. I can’t wait to find out what will be the new in-colours and what stamp sets will be introduced to enable us to use the new Stamparatus tool. WOW !
So enough Banter from this little bird. I will save my voice as I know the weekend will be filled with chatter, banter and much giggling. Take a closer look at my lovely Parrot. Isn’t he cute. By the way the nest is simply a small scrap of burlap ribbon bent in place and stuck behind a circular cut window. The brick wall is textured using embossing paste and a mask. See you soon when I am back from this fab event.
