Group Meeting/Service Project - Tuesday, October 21

These are the fun projects we made last night at our Group Meeting...

This first card is the one we made to donate to the local Commission on Aging here in our area. We've been bundling up a set of 3 cards in a cute package and donating them to local organizations - they use them as prizes at their Bingo games!! 

We start this card with a Crumb Cake card base, then add another (4 x 5 1/4") layer of Crumb Cake card stock - we embossed this piece with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sponged the woodgrain with Crumb Cake ink.

Next, we die-cut our leaves (in Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango card stock and Champagne Glimmer Paper) with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  We tied a couple of pieces of our twine from the Burlap Ribbon (see this idea here) in a bow and added them to the leaves.  

Finally, we stamped "Happy Birthday to you!" from the Label Love Stamp Set and punched it out with the coordinating Artisan Label Punch - these 2 items are bundled together for a 15% savings on both.  This piece is mounted on top of a Blackberry Bliss Label Bracket Punch piece and popped up on Dimensionals.

Here's the next card we made last night at our Group Meeting - this was our Make-n-Take for the night!!

I just love this stamp set!!

We start this card with a Very Vanilla card base, then added a (4 x 5 1/4") layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock, followed by another (3 3/4 x 5") layer of Very Vanilla card stock.

We die-cut an Oval using our Ovals Collection Framelits (from another piece of 3 3/4 x 5" card stock) and then used this as a mask to sponge the Crumb Cake ink inside the oval on our card.

Next, we stamped the pine needles (from the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set) in Always Artichoke ink, used our Blender pens to remove any excess ink on the tree branch, then colored those in Early Espresso ink using our Early Espresso marker.  Then, we embossed the ornament (using Versamark Ink, Cherry Cobbler Embossing powder and our Heat Tool)

Finally, we stamped "Christmas Wishes" (also from the Ornamental Pine Stamp Set) in Always Artichoke ink and added a bow using a couple of pieces of twine from our Burlap Ribbon and added it to the card - obviously, I just love this idea!! (I've used it a lot lately, haven't I??)
