Come & Stamp Along Club

This month we made a couple of birthday and one thank you cards.


This cute rhino is a part of the set called Animal Outing. It's stamped on a light blue background (created with aqua painter and ink) and shadowed with smokey slate blends. Sitting on an embossed green background.


This is a very cute card. I saw it first on one of the crafters' forum. Somebody's husband was just playing around. I had a chance to show off the new awesome positioning tool that SU! introduced earlier this year. 


The last card was CASEd (copy and share everything) from a fellow demonstrator, Bonnie Allers O'Neil. The card is very simple to put together. The colouring was fun as everyone went used a different tool. You can use aqua painter and ink, blend markers, stampin' write markers or watercolour pencils with blending pens. So many options! Which one would you use?

I created this kit for my small fundraising efforts to support Diabetes UK, the largest charity focused on diabetes research in the UK. I am offering the kit in exchange for a small donation to the charity.

The kit includes:
  • white card base
  • brown "brick wall" cardstock
  • 2 pieces of patterned paper
  • 4 cut out tools
  • 2 blue sentiment pieces
  • 3 silver embellishments
  • few dimensional glue dots
On the top of these things, you will need some colouring pencils or pens and glue.
