Stampers Ten June Make & Take Cards

These are the lovely cards we made at Joanne's June Stamper's Ten Make & Take evening on Tuesday. Another fab crafty evening and the cards were fairly straightforward - but what I did find hard was saying no to the Tunnock's Teacakes that were on offer LOL! I was a good girl though and kept to my low GI oaty biccies!

This first card uses the Greenhouse Garden set. We stamped the Amethyst piece randomly with one of the flower images in Amethyst ink and then used the Eyelet Border punch. For the main image panel, we stamped the flowers first and then cut out Post It Note masks to place over the flowers before stamping the stems. The flowers were stamped in Almost Amethyst ink and then the detail stamp used Lovely Lilac ink. Some corner piercing and white satin ribbon completed the image panel.

Joanne's card didn't have a sentiment but when I got the cards out at home on Wednesday I decided to add one. I used the 'for you' from the Fresh Cuts set, cut it out with a Labels Trio die and edged it with Amethyst ink.

This next card uses the Autumn Splendour set but a summery colour combo of Mellow Moss and So Saffron. The patterned paper is from the Sweet Pea stack and we used the Eyelet Border punch on the Saffron strip. All the leaves were stamped in Mellow Moss ink. After fussy cutting the two leaves stamped on Vanilla CS, we shaped them a bit before mounting them to the sentiment panel. The sentiment was stamped inside a frame from the Frames With a Flourish set and a knot of Choc Chip taffeta ribbon was added. I think this is a fab masculine card design!
