A little while ago I got together with my stamping buddies, Andrea and Leonie N. for the weekend. Well it probably amounted to 24 hours that I was there for but boy did we cram a lot of creating in that time! It’s amazing how much you can create when you don’t have those little interruptions such as family. 🙂 I want to show you some of the projects we created. I won’t give you too many details of the cards. It will take too long.
I played around with my “Reason to Smile” set.
This is a framelit card. This card was inspired by one I saw in my blog travels. It used the “Field Flowers” set but I just changed this around a bit. I stamped the flower 3 times and then again on scrap Vanilla card and cut out the flower. I raised this up off the card with dimensionals. I will try and put together a tutorial on creating this Framelit card. Just give me a bit of time for that. 🙂
This card was CASED by Maureen (I think???) from MamaMo Stamps. I love the butterflies and the debossing using the ‘Elegant Lines’ Embossing Folder.
Here’s another CASE from Maureen. I first embossed some Vanilla cardstock using the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. I then punched out 3 flowers with the Blossom Punch. The centres and greeting from ‘Sincere Salutations’ were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. A very simple card but I think effective.
This is a quick one layer card I CASED from Leonie. I stamped this one in Tangerine Tango. This is such an easy card – maybe 5 minutes MAX!! I stamped one flower on scrap white card and punched it out using the Blossom Punch. This was raised up off the card using dimensionals.
‘That is enough for today. I will post some more from our stamping day next post.
Hope you can stop by again soon,
Now I can show you the projects that we made at my ‘Cards For Cancer’ Event held a few weeks ago. We made 3 cards. I chose the colours of these cards to represent some of the colour ribbons that symbolise various cancers. If you do a search of Cancer ribbon colours it is amazing how many colours represent so many cancers.
Firstly, the pink. We all are familiar with the pink in representing Breast Cancer. For this I used the ‘Reason to Smile’ set that was on promotion last month. It’s a shame this set is not around longer.
This card was inspired by one I saw on my blog travels using ‘Field Flowers’. I liked the layout of the card. For this card we stamped the “Happy Birthday” from ‘Curly Cute’ in black and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impression Folder. We added a white butterfly cut with the ‘Beautiful Wings’ Sizzlit die. The solid flower from ‘Reason to Smile’ was stamped in Pretty in pink and the outline stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
The next card was a lilac colour representing All Cancers. I used Wisteria Wonder.
The card was a Whisper White base with a Wisteria Wonder mat and the White for the top layer. The doily stamp from ‘Delicate Doilies’ was stamped down the side in Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Pretty in Pink. The greeting is from ‘Happiest Birthday Wishes’. We just added some bling in the centre of the Lucky Limeade Doily. This is a very simple card to reproduce. It was CASED from Michelle here. I couldn’t find the actual post with this card though but she has some great cards, so check it out.
The 3rd card had to be one for the boys. This was light blue representing Prostate Cancer. I used Marina Mist and the great set for the boys ‘Need For Speed’ and ‘Extreme Elements’.
I used the Marina Mist Marker to colour the boat. The splodge was inked in Marina Mist and the edges sponged with Night Of Navy. This cards was CASED from Sherri Freese on Stampin’ Connection, our demonstrator forum.
So I hope you like the projects we made. I think everyone who came did. It was a great day and for a Great cause.
