Make-n-Take Cards



Remember how I had a little therapy session a few posts ago? You all were so nice...giving me advice and just plain sympathizing with me! Adilane is now walking holding on to one hand (instead of two),so I am sure she will be walking soon. She has learned to point at what she wants recently, so the screaming is not as frequent as it was...not much still in the talking department, but we are getting by!

I am finally getting to showing you the Make-n-Take cards that I had everyone do that came to the New Catalog Kick-Off party I had last week. It went very well and everyone seemed to like these two cards.

The first one uses the Branch Out set...on a side note, I was totally freaking out when I got my new catalog and didn't see it in there, but it wasn't on the retiring list, finally they released the dormant list (last year for it thank goodness) and it was on there. Since it is one of my favorite sets, I came up with this simple card to allow them to play with it. Going for a summer feel with the Garden Green and Summer Sun color combo. To give the tree a little bit more interest, I did the Rock-n-Roll technique with Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip. Nothing else too crazy here...simple with a little bit of extra detail.


The second one used the Circle Circus stamp set and the new In Colors. This was just one color combo I did for a sample, but everyone got to choose the colors that they wanted to use. The medallion was just stamped in black and then colored in with the In Color markers. I love the little bit of texture that the textured cardstock added to the card. Finally a greeting form Sincere Salutations and a couple of white gel dots finished the card.

That is all for now...I have lots to show sometime in the future, but right now I am actually going to submit them (probably just jinxed myself just by admitting that...oh well!). Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
