Take and Make Saturday!

Yes! You read that right! It’s Paper Anthology’s first Take and Make Saturday, this Saturday, October 3rd, 10-5. What’s a Take and Make? Well, it’s like a Make and Take, in that all of the parts and pieces are ready for you to assemble into an awesome card; but instead of doing that at the store, using shared supplies, you’ll take all the bits and pieces (plus complete instructions, of course) home and finish the card at your leisure. Thus: Take… and Make! This one features Blended Distress Inks in beautiful autumnal shades, over an amazingly textured background made with a terrific Spellbinders’ Cut and Emboss folder called “Delhi“. ps: Bag Ladies get double punches; all Sizzix dies are still 25% off and there is more new product in the store than we could list in one post, so c’mon In this Saturday!!!

Elizabeth Craft (CUTE!) Critters

I used the Fox and Raccoon Dies with the Forest Accessories Set… (other dies in this series include: Lion/Tiger, Giraffe, Monkey, Owl, Chick, Cat, Dog, Whale, Jungle Leaves, Tree, Dog House and more!) …on Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Cardstock – Velvety to the touch with just a tad of surface texture. It is sturdy and porous, a unique cardstock that absorbs color and holds its shape without tearing. Added color with various Distress Inks, applied with Picket Fence Studios Blender Brushes. The Sun is from Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rainbow Die Set.  The MFT Clouds Stencil is currently on order, and will be back in stock soon!

Sharing some cards

Last week, Paper Anthology held out first virtual crop:  Creation Staycation.  It was a week long event, with tons of challenges, trivia and Prizes.  I’m excited to say, it was a huge success, with over 300 challenge entries!  We had such a blast looking through everyone’s gorgeous creation! I thought I would share a few of my cards from the challenges:

This card was for the Monochrome Madness challenge.  Of course, I chose GREEN.  All dies used are from Dress My Crafts:


 

This card was for the Distress background challenge.  Lots of inky goodness with Ranger Distress inks and a fun flower die set from Taylored Expressions:

 

This card was for the one layer (CAS) challenge.  I used the Taylored Expressions square stencils for the background.  The beautiful flower image is from Penny Black .  All inks used, for blending and watercoloring are mini ink cubes from Taylored Expressions:

 

Thanks for stopping by!!!
