Girls Gone Wild!

Hi Stampers!

This has been a very creative weekend for me :)  Friday evening was Calendar Club (our monthly gathering where we make 12 cards - 2 each of 6 different designs).  Saturday, I FINALLY got together with two of my local downline for some stamping and a business meeting (as an aside, it's been so long since I saw one of them in person that she's had another baby since then!!).  Finally, today was a Basic Technique class (heat embossing) and an Advanced Papercrafters class.

For Advanced Papercrafters today, we made tri-shutter cards.  First, I had them make a card base which they then wrote all the measurements and cutting instructions on.  This became their template, for them to keep and take home for future reference.

Next, we all created another card base and I set out my pack of Watercolor Wonder DSP, all the coordinating inks, a couple stamp sets, some Smokey Slate pieces and Whisper White cardstock.

Then we all went to town creating cards!  Here are the results:

First up is Jeannette's:

 
Next is Phyllis's:
 


Finally, mine:
 


OK.  I have NO idea why the photos are skewed the wrong way.  I've just spent the last 20 minutes trying to rotate them.  The originals in my file are the right way up.  I guess you'll have to tilt your head or your computer screen.  Sorry!!!

Anyway, aren't they all pretty?  I love how we all have the same card base but used all different DSP and ink to make our cards!  If you'd like to learn how to make one of these cards, do a search for "tri-shutter card" on the left sidebar and check out my blog post earlier this year.

Check out "Events" on my website to see what classes are coming up.  We'd love to have you join us!

Happy stampin'!
