CRAFTING WITH MY SMALL GROUP - THE CARDS

My small group from Nativity recently got together to craft - stamping and scrapbooking. We had a lot of fun. Here are some cards we created.

With this first card, they learned how to heat emboss and how to use the Big Shot to die cut.

They learned how to dry emboss with the Big Shot and distress with this card.  Stamps by SU! dies and embossing folders by Tim Holtz.


And this card is for Thanksgiving. Kelly and I stayed later with Mary who was still scrapbooking - to create this card. It is also a great Fall Thinking of You or Gratitude card.

 I really love this card for Autumn and may create the same or a similar card for my work group.

BUTTERFLY CARD AND A DISTRESS INK BACKGROUND

I made this card for my friend Pat B. She gave me some beautiful gifts when we got together to celebrate our friendship.  This butterfly is die cut from SU! thinlits and the stamps are also SU!  The background was made using some distress inks in a watercolor like fashion.
