Blog Hop 23rd January and Make & Take Church Group

Hope you have some spare time this coming weekend - were having another Blog Hop - and its a big one!!!

Its going to start on Sunday 23rd January at 10am.

There are about 40 of us from the In Love With Stamping website, split into 4 groups of 10 and we are all making projects using the stamps from the Sale-A-Bration promotion.  If you have seen the Blog Hops in the past they are amazing and give you dozens of ideas for colours and designs.  All you have to do is start at one blog, read the post and then click on the link to take you to the next one.

Make sure you put some time to one side on Sunday to have some proper relaxation and inspiration!!!

Anyway, back to reality, heres a picture of the make and take from last weeks church group workshop.

 I purposely kept it really simple as there were some there with mobility issues and lots of new crafters but I did take lots of stamps for those who fancied having a play.

The Bashful Blue A4 card was cut lenthways and scored at the centre point to give a C6 card blank.  We tied a knot in a strip of the beautiful 5/8 Organza Ribbon (this is so soft and sits perfectly on cards!) and then wrapped it around some Rose Red card.  This was just attached to one side of the front of the card blank.

The bird was punched out of Bashful Blue card using the Two Step Bird punch and the leaf / wing from Wild Wasabi card.  They were just mounted onto a square of Whisper White and mounted again on a slighly bigger square of Rose Red card.

As I took a few stamp sets for people to chose what they wanted to do, I used one of the litte stamps from the Tiny Tags set for the sentiment (here I used 'Friends'). 

To finish off, I punched out a scalloped square from So Saffron card, cut it in half and attached it to the back of the bird topper before adding it on to the card blank - simples!

The ladies loved it and seemed to really enjoy the afternoon.  Hope to see you all again soon!

Thanks for stopping by.  And dont forget to come back to look at the Blog Hop on Sunday!!!
