Three in One!

I wanted to share some of the fun cards we've made at the Thursday Make 'n Take with Scrapendipity the last couple weeks!

We used Gellatos for the first card - so much fun!  We blended with a baby wipe and stamped on top of the background and then stamped and heat embossed a large flower stamp on the centre piece.

I added a sparkly brad and some pink Stickles to the centre of my flower.

I used the Simon Says Stamp set included with the January card kit for the sentiment on the inside.

We die cut the butterflies from foil paper and then used a coordinating embossing folder to add embossed highlights to the large butterfly. The background is stamped with a script stamp and the flowers are stamped with Versamark and then we applied Perfect Pearls - so pretty!

Of course after Make 'n Take I had to do a bit of shopping in the Scrapmobile - parked right on site!! I picked up this cute Magenta girl stencil and the Tim Holtz clockwork stencil and decided to make a tag.

I used Gesso to stencil through a Heidi Swapp heart stencil and used Distress Paint to stencil through a Crafters Workshop arrow stencil. Then I sponged on Distress Ink and stencilled on the clockwork, girl, circles and honeycomb stencils with Distress Inks. After, I stamped on some 7 Gypsies stamps with Archival Ink and added a gem and clip.

 I love how the Gesso and Paint resists the inks!
