Yesterday was my monthly Stamp Group at Stamp'n'create. I had a few projects to do - some more cards for my hubby's birthday - for the kids to give him. I didn't have that great a day... nothing seemed to be going right. Messed up a couple of cards.... try to make a male-ish background and it turned out too girly ( did make a nice card for a female friend turning 50 soon) - but a fun day none the less.
here. I have copied this - using the Hero Arts Digikit - Vintage Travel. I used word to resize and cut out the car and used aqua crayons to colour. The map background I printed out onto white card and used Old Paper distress ink to colour and edge. Added the twine and then made a button/tag from Hero Arts Travel Journal set. I used the HA Petite Messages for the sentiment. Thanks for the idea Jenn.
Next one is also another one I copied the idea for.... ( lack of inspiration yesterday) so thanks this time to Vanessa who's card here was my inspiration. I used my CB to make the background and used Walnut stain distress ink to colour. The light blue card was stamped with HA Old French writing and distressed with Blue Jeans distress ink. The darker blue was stamped with a Penny Black sentiment.
This is the one that started as an attempt to make a "male" background. I used two blues and a red alcohol inks to make the background. I then stamped the Grid pattern stamp in Stazon - It seemed a bit plain so added the flowers - definitely more girly...( since I took the photo have added a Happy Birthday in black and it will do for a birthday card for a female friend turning 50 on the 25th)
Make and Take this week was a card using Flower Soft. Judi gave us a demo on using it and then off we all went and made our card. Great stuff for dimension. Earlier in the day, Judi had also done a demo on using Pearl Ex in different ways. I bought two new stamps that I am going to try some of the techniques with.
Well it's been a long post so thanks for visiting - wishing you all a great week
