My friends are crafty

Once a month some of us crafty girls get together and make cards.  Prior to the meet, we each design a card and then make kits for each person attending.  In the kit is enough material for each person to make two copies of your card.  We also require that both of your cards must be made in under an hour.  It is a fun get together and we always learn something new.  We met on Sunday for another crafty afternoon.  I would like to share my friends' cards with you all...

The first card was designed by Janice.  She is our Gamsol gal, our House Mouse Maiden, our Coloring Comrade.  It is a great card and we learned a quick and easy way to stack stamp!

She cut three pieces of ivory paper that were center stacked on top of each other (secured with temporary tape) and then stamped with Tim Holtz's stamp set Urban Grunge in inks Tea Dye, Bundled Sage and Walnut Stain.  After stamping we framed each ivory square with brown cardstock and mounted it on ivory cardstock.  Three progressively smaller pearls were added.

 

What a card!  It can be masculine, feminine, used for birthdays or just a note to say hi.  Virtual high five to Janice for this lesson learned!  Cannot wait to design cards using this stack stamping method.

Next up was Val:  Our Crafter Extraordinaire, our Die Cutting Queen, our Renaissance Woman.  Her cards were O-La-La Lovely.  The Eiffel Tower is such a cool die and the hot air balloon die is on my wish list!  The layout is just perfect and happy!

 
 
 
Rebecca was next.  She is our Fancy Folding Femme, our Creative Cutter, our Design Diva.  She did the same layout for both cards but used two different colors.  It was a quick card to assemble but it does not look like it.  (We may have to change her nickname to Fancy Cutter Diva.)  And the colors...I can't pick out which I like better!  Both are so sweet.  Of course her butterfly die steals the show on this showstopping card.

 

 
Thanks, Ladies!  Looking forward to the next meet!

  1. These are all pretty. I've been planning on doing the first technique for a long time now, but so far I haven't gotten around to it. I almost did it this morning, then decided to emboss on vellum instead. Yours are beautiful.

    The balloon and Eiffel tower are really pretty too, and I love the bottom cards!
