Friends 24-7 Make-and-Take

This is one of the make and take cards my guests made at my Sale-a-bration and Summer Mini Catalogue launch party a couple of weeks ago.  The design was entirely inspire by Teneale Williams here and I told my guests exactly that – and one of them confessed she had already seen Teneale’s card!  Teneale has made such a beautiful card, you should check it out (if you haven’t already seen it, lol!).

Only, I couldn’t use the stamp set, Bliss, as Teneale had.  I don’t have it yet!  So, this is a good example of how you can make what you have work for you.  I wanted to also use Well Scripted on my launch night, so I made this card work for me. 

I used the colours Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Concord Crush DSP from the Level 1 Hostess DSP Pack.  I put the Concord Crush DSP through my Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and a string of SU pearls in the middle.  The striped DSP is also the Concord Crush DSP.

Like Teneale, I also used the rock and roll technique for the damask from Friends 24-7.  I stamped in Perfect Plum ink first, then stamped off once, then rock and rolled the stamp in Elegant Eggplant.  I love the effect! 

I stamped the sentiment from Well Scripted in Elegant Eggplant and a touch of Victoria crochet trim lace finished off the card.

Razzleberry Happy Moments

I love this card.  The colours really grab me – Rich Razzleberry and Taken with Teal.  I’ve used the Scallop Edge punch along the right edge of the card and layered it with Taken with Teal cardstock to give the edge definition.  I stamped the flowers from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Moments, in Staz On ink and then coloured in using my blender pens and ink pads.  The flower stems are coloured with Certainly Celery. 

Don’t you love the bow?  The new Rich Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon is simply YUM! lol!

It is hard to see in the photograph, but I’ve stamped the oval stamp from Vintage Labels in Rich Razzleberry on the Large Oval punched layer and also in Taken with Teal on the Wide Oval punched layer.  A subtle bit of stamping!  Here is a close up:

This would be a great make-and-take card for a workshop!

One of a Kind Make and Take

I’m loving using my One of a Kind stamp set and the coordinating Boho Blossoms punch.  Have you noticed?!! I can’t believe I nearly didn’t buy it!

This is one of the cards we made at my Spring Mini Catalogue Launch Party at the beginning of the week.  This was the original card I based the make and take on which used Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and Soft Sky cardstock.

And then when I cut the cardstock for the make and take I forgot to use Very Vanilla and used Whisper White instead !!  So, this is what the card looks like using Whisper White (and Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon instead of the stitched grosgrain):

I let my guests choose which ribbon and rhinestone brads they preferred to use from a selection.  A lot of my guests used the Blue Bayou stitched grosgrain ribbon and that looked lovely as well!

Do you prefer the Whisper White or Very Vanilla?  And do you prefer the stitched grosgrain or taffeta ribbon?  I’d love to know!
