Inspired by SAF: Make & Take Cards

Papertrey Ink held a "Stamp-a-Faire Summer Camp" event on July 21st, 
highlighting many techniques, videos and tutorials and encouraging 
crafters to enter cards and projects for each of the challenges. Even though 
I had planned to participate, I just didn't get anything finished in time for 
the challenge deadlines!!  I will be highlighting lots of projects - all inspired 
by the Stamp-a-Faire videos and techniques. I invite you to join me  all this 
week, for a look back at some of the fun challenges  and projects.

Nichole Heady introduced the day with a Make and Take card project using the floral set: Natural Beauties. (view video here) . I didn't have this set at the time, so I used the large floral image from Pretty Peonies.

Card #1:

Dots (Fillable Frames #11) were stamped in Summer Sunrise 
and the dandelions (Botanical Silhouettes) in Harvest Gold. 
Yellow pearl accents and a Vellum sentiment panel.

The inside of the card was stamped with sentiments from
 Movers and Shakers Sentiments and Pretty Peonies.  The 
small peony was stamped, then coloured with copic markers.

Card #2:
I wasn't happy with the first card, so I ended up making a 
second one.Maybe that's why I take so long to create projects!!

Dots were stamped with Canyon Clay and 
the  small flowers with Summer Sunrise.
Pink pearl accents and a Vellum Sentiment Panel.

Two beautiful cards. I loved this make & take. I always love how you finish off the inside of your cards. I need to do this more often.
