INKstravaganza Make-n-take's 1 & 2


What's that you say?  What, I didn't show you the actual cards the girls got to make!  Oh, my bad so sorry!  I thought you just wanted to see them stamping!  Today I will share 2 of the make-n-takes and the other 2 tomorrow, how's that?

There are literally so many talented stamp artists out there sharing on blogs and pinterest, instagram and facebook, you name it there is inspiration everywhere!  Sometimes I sit down and just stamp and see what comes!  Sometimes I just love something I've seen and want it - well, I have to make it because it's not like they are just going to send it to me because I like it...! :(

And I am honest about it when I CASE (copy and share everything) someone, whether it's a layout or the exact card or a very slightly modified version.  There is nothing wrong with copying!!  I do try to give credit as I think that's only fair and considerate but sometimes I've saved something and it's been so long ago I don't remember or if the picture doesn't have a watermark on it ...  so feel free to CASE and just get stamping!!

This card was CASEd by "ZoKris", found it on Pinterest - I just loved the simplicity of this card, yet so so pretty!  And so versatile in any color scheme it would be pretty and anyone can do this card!  Big Shot Framelits and embossing folder for the banner piece, ink pad stamping and framelits for the feathers, and markers to rubber stamp for the two tone greeting.  Add some rhinestone embellishments and tah-dah!

This card was CASEd by "Teneale W" - one of the Artisan award winners for Stampin' Up!.  A lot of basic techniques like sponging and heat embossing with white ink on color cardstock but it sure packs a beautiful punch!  Love the touch of burlap and twine and lace!

Thanks ladies for your lovely artwork and I hope you enjoyed my versions of their inspiration!

See ya tomorrow for the other two!
