Stamp-a-stack

Today was such a good day to get together with friends and stamp! And not one Christmas card in sight! Yay! It was really refreshing but I have to say, we must have all over indulged over the break because we were all making silly, and funny mistakes, losing everything, and laughing, a lot! We did 6 cards, 2 of each design, and we used all sets from the new summer mini.The idea was to kick start the new year with a bunch of cards, 2 feminine, 2 masculine and 2 for kids. These ones were for the kids and you could chose between a pink/red card, mustard, blue or green. I love the new chunky glitter from the summer mini, it really makes these cards pop! The stamps are from the In the stars set.
We used the For Father stamp set for these ones, and you could chose what image to stamp. We did some coloring and embellished with some twill, brads, tearing and sponging. I think this is a lovely set for male cards, and it was good to do some coloring again. I think the twill added a nice touch that is not too girly.
The last card was one we did at the regionals in October, utilising patterned and textured paper and the Live your Dream set. I found this new "tricky" way to use ribbon on SCS the other day. Run a line of sticky strip along the card and then bunch the ribbon along it for this ruffled effect, pretty cool huh! (Saves me the agony of trying to tie the perfect bow)
So this was our stamp a stack, we had heaps of fun, hope you can join us for the next one! Email me for details lhe73381@bigpond.net.au

Great cards Leonie - I really love the star ones. I'm now determined to buy this set, it was one I wasn't realy sure about but after seeing your cards and receiving Yvonne's Christmas card, I think I really need it!
Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year - hope to catch up again soon.
