Make 'n Takes

Here are the make 'n takes we made at the Artful*Inkers 
First Annual Appreciation Event last Saturday

Isn't it pretty?  It is a pretty little 4 x 4 note card using new products 

Stamps:  Loving Thoughts
Ink:  Basic Gray
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Twitterpated DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Fashionable Hearts Embosslit Die, 
Adorning Accents Edgelit Die, Large Pearl Basic Jewels, 
Blushing Bride 3/8" Pleated Ribbon 

The next fun card we made uses a technique called Inlaid Embossing.
Simply add your shapes to your cardstock, in this case the circles onto the Whisper White, and then run it through the Big Shot using a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
This card also uses a fun new accent, our Maze Game!  
The back piece is removable, but make sure the little balls don't 
fall out, so you can add your stamped image to it.

Stamps:  Totally A-maze-ing
Ink:  Basic Gray and Real Red Classic Ink
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White and Blushing Bride, 
Basic Black and Red Glitter Paper
Accessories:  Maze Game, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Modern Label Punch, Small Heart Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch and 3/4" Circle Punch, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

The last project we made was this beautiful piece meant for framing.
It was from Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference and the saying 
was made using My Digital Studio.
All attendees had access to the image after the Conference and 
Donna was happy to share it with us. 

Stamps:  Mixed Bunch
Inks:  Versa Mark, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight,
