Monthly Stamping Group - October 2011

So my monthly stamping group began in earnest. Such fun, such lovely ladies and gentlemen ! I'm looking forward to the next 9 months thats for sure :-)

Our first session began with a card and a goody bag !

The single layer card we made was using one of my all time favourites, Just Believe. Colours of the sponging were daffodil delight, peach parfait and bravo burgundy. Sponging always enhances a card I think, so the idea to sponge the whole background was just perfect. I made masking templates and used temporary double sided tape for the sponged area, which were then removed and the black border drawn in with a pen and ruler. A simple and very effective card.

I was very excited to see the cellophane bags in the new holiday mini. Lots of ideas sprung to mind.

Everybody loved the goody bags we made and a significant number of orders placed.

I used the new stamp set : Sweets for the Sweet, 2010/2012 in-colour cardstock and soft subtles designer series paper stack. The ribbon is 1/4" grossgrain. Every craft pack I gave out to my crafters contained different coloured papers and ribbons, so it was a very colourful result.
Thanks for stopping by, I'm off now to think of next months projects .....
