Cards with Friends

Once a week my lovely friends (waving at you Wendy, Robyn and Suzie!!) get together and have a card making day but I think mostly we spend a lot of time talking and laughing!

The following cards we made were from ideas from some wonderful card makers out there and which in turn we just had to CASE. I received my new Dreams du Jour set and we had a play with these beautiful stamps.

The following three cards were inspired by this one from Christine Creations.

This one was made by myself and I went with the new Pacific Point cardstock teamed up with Whisper White and also a piece of DSP from "Petals & Paisleys". I used inks from Tempting Turquoise and Ballet Blue with a blender pen to colour in the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves. The butterflies were inked with Tempting Turquoise. I finished mine off with a very pale blue ribbon.

This next card is made by the lovely Robyn and if my memory is right I think she used Ballet Blue with a piece of DSP from the Old Olive prints. Rob finished her card off with white ribbon.

Next we have the same card made by Wendy. I also think she used Ballet Blue as well and the same Old Olive Prints DSP. Wendy also changed the layout a little and positioned her brads on the top left hand corner. This card was also finished off with white ribbon.

I think these cards all came up lovely and it shows how you can get the same look by changing colours and moving elements around. We did do more cards but I will post them at a later date. There are just too many to put on in one post!! We did end up having quite a productive day with lots of cards made. I will have to get photos of Suzie's cards as she had left before we bought the camera out.
