I am wild about Wild Wasabi

I am getting ready for my first Craft Fair since becoming a Stampin' Up demonstrator and am going to have a display of Stampin' Up products, punches, papers for instance.  To make it look more inviting I started to make a few items to show off the lovely papers.  I started with the notepad holder and then I thought I would see just how many cards or items it would be possible to make using the same sheet of designer paper.

As you can see it is a lot!  and be assured there is not a lot left.

That is the good thing about punches, you can decide where to punch on the page, so you can get the design you want and can really make good use of your paper.
After all its too lovely to waste :-))

The designer series paper I have used is Wild Wasabi, from the Subtles designer series paper.
Punches used, were:
  • the large butterfly and the teeny one
  • the itsy bitsy flower (that's at the end of the bakers twine on the note pad holder)
  • the balloon punch
  • the 2" and 11/4" circle punches (for the cup handle, and one on the base)
  • the 11/4"scallop circle punch
  • the hexagon punch
The scoring was either done on the Simply Score Board, with either the usual score base or the diagonal score base, or the Stampin' Up Trimmer.

The cutting has been done using the Stampin' Up Trimmer.

Glue used was Tombo, or glue dots

The gift pad is tied with bakers twine.

The essential piercing pack, was used to add faux stichting to the hexagons on quilt-type card.

These are still a work in progress, I will add some bling to them and am definitely going to add a biscuit to the tea cup and put it into a cello bag.
