How much "mess" can three people make?

Let me show you...........



Yesterday I was joined by Helen and Lei for a day of stamping.  With just the three of us, we spread out a bit.... look at all the creativity going on... between the three of us we made over 15 cards.  And I finished off another one today. 

Most of what I did was for upcoming design work so can't share just yet.  But I did borrow some of Lei stamps and made some cards.


I'm not sure who makes the stamp. (Could be Inkadinkado)  I went for a very monochromatic look.  I inked up the stamp with Hero Arts Charcoal ink and then added the Winnie and Walter sentiment stamps.  Can you see where I had to fix a mistake?  

This card was the other stamp of Lei's I borrowed.  It is by a NZ company called Rubbadubbadoo.  I had stamped it onto cream card and then cut with a Spellbinders die. Sponged with Antique Linen ink while it was still in the die.  To make the outside layer, I drew around the outside of the die and hand cut.  The background PP is from Rosie's Studio.  The flowers are from Prima and the die cut leaves from a Cherry Lynn die.    This is a for an upcoming birthday for a friend.  I have made a little box envelope to put this in and will hand deliver when the time comes.  
 
I had an awesome day with my friends.  We did miss the others but as I had sent out the invite at short notice it was good to catch up with those that I could.  

Hope your weekend was a great as mine was.

It looks as though you had a marvellous day with your friends.
Yes I noticed the layer on the first card and knew immediately what it was all about :-) wonder why ;-).
