Convention ‘09 Wings of Friendship


I hope you’re not tired of my convention swaps… here’s another one!  This one uses the fabulous Hostess Level III Set “Wings Of Friendship”.  This set is free when you host a workshop or place an order of $500.00 or more!

quickcards_sas039-0 005 Stamps:

     Wings of Friendship (Free)

Card Stock:

     Very Vanilla (#101650 /$7.50)

     Crushed Curry (#115319 / $5.50)


     Crushed Curry Grosgrain Ribbon (#115614 /$9.95)

     Circle Scissors Plus (#112530 /$29.95)

     Scrap of Dark Cardstock or paper (Any Color) 5.5” x 5.5”

     Mini Glue Dots (#103683 /$4.95)


This was a fun swap that one of my Down-line (Eva) helped me make while we had lunch in a local restaurant a few weeks ago. 

Card Cutting Instructions and Assembly Notes:

     Crushed Curry 4.25 x 5.5”

     Very Vanilla 5.25” x 8”, scored at 4”

  • I used my Circle Scissor Plus to cut a 3 3/8” circle from the scrap of cardstock.  The cardstock is larger than the card to protect all the areas you do not want to over-stamp. 
  • The circle is then aligned with the front of the card and to the left side (hold up to a light to confirm the alignment).
  • Holding the circle in place with your hand (or with a temporary adhesive), stamp the bird first with Crushed Curry Ink, and then the flourish from the stamp set.  You will notice a small 1/8” margin all around the circle that does not get stamped… and that is ok!
  • Remove the circle protector, and stamp the greeting from the stamp set in the lower right corner of the card front.
  • Next, cut a  2.75” piece of ribbon and glue to the front/left of the card, wrapping appx. 1/4” around to the back.  I glued the ribbon with my tombow multi-adhesive (two way tape)
  • Tie a small bow, and affix to the bottom of the ribbon with a mini glue dot. 
  • The large Crushed Curry piece is mounted on the back of the card fold-over for an accent of color. 

I’ll have one more swap to share… and of course, pictures from Convention ‘09 too!

Sharon - love visiting your blog but wanted to point out that the bird set pictured in this post is a $300 hostess set - not $500 - I know that because I have it and I have not turned in a $500 order for myself this year. Jut thought your customers might be encouraged by the fact that they can earn it with less sales. it is a great set and i love the way you used it. No surprise - in general I love all your work!
