I had a crafty play date on Saturday. My pal has a great craft room, and I usually just bring the "use it all the time" stuff from my craft desk. She has everything else.
In the eight hours that we crafted, I made one card. One. I also played a lot and made a bunch of card fronts, some of which might even be salvageable. Even though I didn't finish a lot of cards, I did get a lot of "what if I tried this?" play time, which takes a lot off my mental list. Always a good thing.
The other benefit of using someone else's craft room is you get to use their stamps and dies. We have different tastes, so she always has stuff I don't have. Like the Penny Black die I used to make this (my only finished card):
Hmmm, you can see everywhere I missed coloring. Drat.
The die cuts out the rectangle in the base, as well as the framed floral piece. I colored the floral piece with Copics, then on another piece of white card stock I blended two colors of Distress ink. Then I stuck the two panels together and glued the floral piece into the frame. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
I wanted to put this onto a green card base, but my pal said she'd like it better on white, so the floral image popped more. I over-rode her and put it on green anyway. I just won't send it to her. HA (kidding).
The rest of the time was spent playing with embossing pastes and water color powders. I'll alert you if I ever use one of them on a card.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stuff I used: Lawn Fawn Sending Hugs (must be retired or a thank-you stamp, or something), Copics (R05, R17, Y18, YG03, YG17), and the following:
