Summer Stamping Bingo - I Say Hello

Summer Stamping Bingo was so much fun today!  I love seeing my bingo ladies and it has been several months since we got together.  One of the five projects we made was this darling Pressed Petals journal.  It has an enchanting floral embossed cover that coordinated so nicely with the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and our Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim.

We use my gym, Curves Boise, and have the whole place to ourselves for the afternoon.  Here the ladies are deeply focused on tracking their bingo cards.

After a few games of Bingo we stop for our stamping projects.  This stamp station included our Water color pencils.  You can see them coloring here.

This is the card that they made.  We used the Water color pencils on the corners to complement the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Each person received "I Say Hello" stamp set in their goody bag and will be able to use it over and over for projects at home.  We used almost every image in the "I Say Hello" stamp set:

This stamping station had two card projects and each design used a Stamparatus for perfect stamp image placement. 

The display boards featured unique designs made by demonstrators from all over the USA.

Everyone stamped at the stamp stations and then returned to their tables to assemble their projects.

This sheet music DSP was a fun background for the graduation theme card.

It was fun to see friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, and daughters all come to stamp together!

Stamping stations mean that supplies can stay in one location and people can move around to each project.  There is less waiting and crowding with this process and everyone gets to move around and get acquainted.

 This was my favorite card among my designs.  The Rococo Rose scalloped ribbon is such a nice texture.  Also the Mossy Meadow card stock was embossed with the Country Floral embossing folder before it was punched with the Tailored Tag punch - this really elevated the texture and complexity of the design.

Each participant received a 6 page color tutorial for their projects.  This meant they could know their supplies and details as they assembled their projects.  I didn't have to instruct each person, I could mingle and help where I was needed.

The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper was such a great pick for this stamp set and the cards I designed.  I liked the blue flowers and burlap, it has a calming tone for this sympathy card.

One of the nicest parts of a stamping event is meeting other stampers and making new friendships!

The two display tables also held the Raffle gifts.  There were all sorts of product packs, embossing folders, and kits.

As you can see, the "I Say Hello" stamp set has a lot of versatility to suit many kinds of projects.  I hope that my cards and journal inspire you to use the "I Say Hello" stamp set in your stamping.

These lovely ladies are the Bingo winners!
Tiffany took home the Blackout Bingo prize: "For the Love of Felt" kit.
