Friends 24-7

Published by under cards | Nov 23 2009

 On Saturday I spent a great day in Camperdown, Vic., with my wonderful team member Maureen and her group of Ink Link demonstrators for a training and stamping day. It was so nice to sit, stamp and chat with like-minded people (aka fellow stamping addicts).


Maureen joined my team when I was still pretty green and it’s been an absolute pleasure to get to know her over the past few years. She really is one of those people that everyone says "isn’t she lovely". Plus she’s a very talented cardmaker too!


Here are some of the Make & Takes we did (ok, so I was too busy talking to finish them at Maureen’s but I did finish this card when I got home!)

Friends 24/7

This card features the Friends 24/7 stamp set  (p81 IBC) and the matching Friendly wheel, and was inspired by another team member, Juliana. The flower was punched with the Wide Oval punch, then sponged around the edges and then coated in Crystal Effects to create the look of a cameo. Very effective technique, although it is a bit difficult to see the full effect in this picture.

We also made the crimped envelope card (CASE of Leonie Schroder’s):

A Rose Is A Rose - crimped envelope pocket

And we EVEN got to play with some yummy new toys that will be available next month in the NEW Summer Mini catalogue! Ooooh how exciting. I’ll share those with you another day 😉

Happy stamping,
