Card Making Night

These are the three cards we made Saturday during Card Making Night. We really had a lot of fun! In fact so much fun that I think it was midnight when everyone finally left. We had good food, great conversation and crafting. What more could you ask for? 

For the first card of the evening I wanted to create a Halloween themed card. I thought a pumpkin was the perfect opportunity to use the Sweet Treat Cups. The only problem I ran into was finding orange colored candy. I ended up buying a bag of Starburst Jelly Beans and a bag of Dark Chocolate M&M's and Aubrey sorted them by color. What a great little assistant she is!

Materials:
  • Stamp Set:  Grateful Greetings (116511)
  • Ink:  Basic Black Classic Ink Pad (101179)
  • Card Stock:  Basic Black, (121045)Tangerine Tango (111349), Rich Razzleberry (115316), Old Olive (100702), Whisper White (100730)

The second card was a birthday card. We used Stampin' Write markers to color in the cake image to match the designer paper. The great thing about Stampin' Write markers is that the colors match perfectly with the paper and card stock colors.
