Make & Take Challenge

Yesterday I shared the cards from the Secret Santa Swap from Saturday's Christmas Party. It's not a Stampin' Up! party without a game and a Make & Take. I did in fact prepare two make & takes. The first was a really quick one which involved making a desk calender but the second was a little different.

Here's my desk calender.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Card stock : Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry
Designer Series Paper : Sweater Weather
Accessories : Stampin' Trimmer or Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Boho Blossoms Punch, Basic Rhinestone.

As I said, the second Make & Take was a little different because I simply provided a package of cut card stock and designer series paper and a box containing three ink pads and two sets of stamps (plus a couple of other things to throw them off the scent). Everyone then had free reign to make a card and there were raffle tickets to be won depending on how close their design was to mine. I had pre-made a card and put it in a brown envelope. I'd even put cardboard around the card so that if they felt it it would not give anything away (a little extreme I guess). We opened the envelope when everyone had finished.

Here's my card and one of the packs that I gave everyone.

And, here's what everyone came up with.

Bottom one is mine

It was lovely to see how different they all were, and yet there's one or two quite close to the mark.  If you are wondering how it worked, there were points awarded if the card was the same orientation (landscape), had a V cut into the banner, used Cherry Cobbler for the greeting, used the same greeting, used one or more of the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge, etc. I think you get the idea.

I think this Make & Take was enjoyed by everyone and I for one certainly loved seeing all the different designs that were made from three pieces of card stock and three strips of Designer Series Paper/Glimmer Paper.

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets : Gorgeous Grunge and Joy to the World
Card Stock : Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White. Champagne Glimmer Paper.
Ink : Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive
Designer Series Paper : Season of Style
Accessories : Paper Snips and Dimensionals

I have a piece of exciting news to share with you today. A new Clearance Rack Blitz starts tomorrow (10 Dec). There will be retired products, with some of them up to 80% off their original prices.

You can order on-line and have them shipped direct to you for £4.95. Alternatively, if you live close to me and are willing to risk them still being available this coming weekend (when I put my next order in) I can add them to my order and you can come pick them up. In this instance, shipping would be free. The choice is yours but don't miss out by leaving it too late. I am sure that there will be some great bargains to be had that would make great Christmas presents.
