cards, Personal Ramblings


It’s always a lot more fun to get together with friends to stamp.  Yesterday we had a stamping day at Leonie S.  I went along with Andrea and Leonie and I met up with Tanya who had come from WA, and I met Lisa too.  Lots of laughs and stamping.

Here are some of the projects we made.

Leonie S. showed us how to make this cute little box using the Big Shot and the Scallop envelope die.  It’s a great size to add a few choccies as a small thank you to someone.  It is so quick to make.  Thanks Leonie!

The next project was this gorgeous card shown to us by Lisa.

The photo doesn’t do it justice.  The flowers were created by punching out several scallop circles from the scallop circle punch.  The black circles were distressed and scrunched, and unfolded and scrunched some more until the layers separated.  This created a faux suede effect.  It was a bit time consuming but is very effective.  The Kraft scallops were stamped with the swirl from Baroque Motifs.  Then they were all assembled together to form this lovely flower.  The vanilla card was stamped with the En Francais script in Sahara Sand and the edges sponged.  The edge of the Vanilla and the black was punched with the Eyelet border punch.  Some Kraft taffeta ribbon was scrunched and adhered to the card.  Those black leaves with the flower wer made using the Big Shot ‘Little Leaves’ Die.  This was all assembled on a Kraft card base which had the swirls from Baroque Motifs stamped around the edge.  Thanks Lisa.  I think I will be making this card again – perhaps in some other colour combos?????

I will just show you a few photos of our busy group.

Andrea and Leonie N. busy creating!

 Thanks for stopping by and seeing all our antics!  It’s so great when we can catch up with friends we meet on our blog travels.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a good day.  🙂
