Cool Prizes

April 27th, 2008

At StampMania each participant brought a hand stamped door prize (valued $5-10), plus we had a table overflowing with awesome Sponsor Prizes.  Emily does a great job of contacting companies and coordinating the prize donations.  Plus Emily, Joy and I purchase some prizes out of the SCSM budget.  There are truly prizes galore and we give them away all day long!  We are so grateful to the Sponsor Companies for helping to make the day so special!

Everyone filled out a door prize ticket when they turned in their prize during registration.  As soon as they finished up at the Make&Take table they came over to me at the podium to draw a name to give their prize to.  This is such a fun way to do it because you get to meet the person who made the prize you won and you get to meet and personally give the prize you made to someone.

I won the door prize brought by Laura Phillips.  She’s a rep for Jordan Essentials so she brought yummy Black Raspberry Vanilla Shower Gel and a Candle.  She made a super cute vellum wrap for the candle and finished it off with huge primas.  Thanks Laura!


For the Sponsor Prizes everyone gets a numbered raffle ticket and Emily calls numbers throughout the day.  I was sooooo excited when Emily called my number!  I got to go over to this huge birdcage and pick out a plastic egg (I picked a pink one of course!).  I opened the egg to see which numbered prize I had one…#32 was this awesome A Muse package!!!!  I was jumping up and down!


I had just been saying a couple of days earlier how owls are so *hot* right now and, with all the bird images I have, I didn’t have any owls!  Plus pink and celery is one of my very favorite color combos and I do love these 4 bar note cards!  The package even came with the card in the picture above – how stinkin’ COOL is that?  My favorite little detail on the card is the owls eyes are covered with Crystal Effects (or something like that) for the perfect little touch of dimension.  I will be doing that probably every time I use that image.  0   The sentiment *Hoo loves you* really makes the whole thing *grin*.

And here’s my first card with my prize goodies.


The 4 Bar Note Cards are 3.5 x 5 and come with envelopes.  I decided I wanted to try a tent topper card so I cut down the note card to 3.5 square.  I stamped the oval image with Certainly Celery ink on shimmer white cardstock and then added the owl image (using a stamp-a-majig) with Palette Hybrid Noir Black ink.  The image was colored with my Copic markers and I used the Colorless Blender pen (cordless blender – LOL!) to tap onto the owls for a bit of feather texture.  I just love their little pink bellies and of course I used CE on the eyes.  Then I punched the image with a Marvy Mega Oval punch and layered it onto shimmery pink cardstock punched with a Marvy Giga Scalloped Oval punch.  I added some Polymark pearl paint and attached the oval over the ribbon with some foam tape.  The stripes at the bottom are strips of pink and white shimmer cardstock and the final touch is the SU pink rhinestone brads.

Last night we watched the movie Michael Clayton on pay per view.  I didn’t like it nearly as much as I expected to…if it hadn’t been for George Clooney I would have had a hard time even finishing it.  During the movie I colored several images with Copics so hopefully I’ll have some time this week to turn them into cards.  I really need to be productive tomorrow – I’m behind on so many things around the house.  I did catch up on laundry, but can you believe I still haven’t gotten groceries!?  It’s bad – really bad!  I must be almost recovered from StampMania though…I’ve already come up with an idea for another really big event.  We’ll see if it pans out.  Go ahead – say it – I’m crazy – I KNOW!

Hope you have a great week.  Thanks for stopping by.
