Cards For "Day of Card Making"

Well, I've been up since 4am. I'm going to be gone today for about 5 hours for a card making day at a friends house. Each person brings 2 types of cards and enough for each person to make 2 of that card. Mine are Valentine and Masculine. And we each bring a dish. I made a double batch of Creamy Cheesy Potato Soup with crackers. There will be 8 "stations" so I think I'll be coming home with 32 cards. I can't wait to see what the other girls will make. Mine are basic stamping but some of the girls are really advanced stampers. I'll definitely post all the cards later. :0)

The cards are all done with Stampin Up Supplies. The Love card is a gate fold card using the new set Filled With Love and the Pattern Of Love Designer Paper. I used Pretty In Pink satin ribbon on one and Real Red Polka-Dot ribbon on the other(I like the polka-dot one better). Also used textured real red and regular pretty in pink cardstock. Real Red ink and some glitter on the heart.
On the Train card I used now discontinued Kiwi Kiss Designer paper(I love this color and was so sad to see it go), basic black and whisper white card stock. The button is corduroy in Kiwi Kiss with black hemp tied to it. It gives it a nice texture to the card. The ribbon is also striped Kiwi Kiss. Used jet black Stazon ink. Hope they will like them. They look much better in person!

Hope you have time today to be creative and most of all stamp!

Till my next post...take care and have a wonderful day,
