November 14, 2013 - Stamping with Friends

AMuse Cs, Vellum flower from AMuse die, button, ribbon from a besties stash, stamp ???

Had a girl friends crafting day with 2 besties last week and we were whipping out the cards - some easy peasy some a bit more complicated (you know which one I mean Donna), but came home with a stack of assorted cards to send out as well as a good start on Christmas cards.  Loved this idea - especially with the AMuse shimmer cs - plus the vellum flower with button just pops.  It will be out the door before weeks end as there has been several requests for special cards to Chemo Angels.

Someone Special - sentiment from Hero Arts, Distress inks by Tim Holtz, Butterfly from TAC,  Corner punch Cropadile corner chomper

Another fun card we made a couple of weeks ago when my bestie was here and we lost power so we used flashlights and miners headlamps (and oh did I mention a little wine??), and "cased" this from another bestie Patti as she had done my birthday card using this technique.  Fun technique just apply the inks with finger sponge daubers.   Always need that  quick pic me up card.

We had so much fun! The flower card was so cute, and simple to make. I also love the butterfly card and need to try inking stamps that way.
