I have a some great projects to show you today. My friend Donna came over on Monday and we spent the day stamping. I had such a good time - I haven't been able to do that in awhile. (Too much playing piano and transcribing...) So I REALLY enjoyed a "day off" to play!
Here are the three projects that we made. Details are below.
Donna wanted to learn how to make this Diamond-Fold card, so I came up with this one. I love the colors, which came from the Twitterpated DSP (Occasions Mini Catalog) that we used. Here is my card closed:
(*This is a great tip if you want to emboss something in a color that you don't have the powder or craft ink pad for.)
And then the card opened:
This one is Donna's. She did it just a little different.
Our next two projects were ones that Donna wanted to make that she had found on another blog. They're from Flowerbug's Inkspot (LeeAnn G). She has some wonderful creations there! You should definitely check it out!
This first one is a penguin made from punch art. We tweaked the card just a little (and I made it a little more generic with the Best Wishes), but it's pretty much the same as the one HERE. I changed it up by adding a couple of embossing folders - the Perfect Polka Dots and the Snow Burst (which was in the Holiday Mini Catalog but you can still order it). Don't you just love his jaunty hat set on the side of his head? We thought he was pretty cute!
The other project is this great treat pouch. LeeAnn was kind enough to post step-by-step instructions on her blog, so if you want to make one of these, you can go to her link HERE and make one of your own. This is such an elegant-looking project.
I hope you've enjoyed today's projects. We certainly had a lot of fun making them! I can't wait until we have a chance to get together again and stamp!
