A recent make n' take


If anyone is out there still checking my blog...I am sorry there has been a bit of a hiatus. It isn't that I have not been stamping, just that I have not had a chance to photograph my creations and upload them.

The cards below were some of the make n' takes we made at a recent workshop.

The colours are Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. I have also used Spring Fling Designer Series Paper, Polka Dot and Linen background stamps, Fun and Fast Notes and Birthday Best stamp sets, Certainly Celery wide grosgrain ribbon, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink tafetta ribbon, sponges, paper piercer, gel pen, the tearing edge, Stampin' Pastels, crystal effects, dimensionals, mini glue dots and SNAIL adhesive.

We sponged the edges of the background cardstock...a bit hard to see in these photos. We used Crystal effects to highlight parts of the main image (which had been coloured using pastels). We also decorated a Whisper White envelope to coordinate with the card.

I had fun....I hope everyone else did too :-).
