You're Inspiring - Team Training Make and Take

This was the Make and Take project I designed for my Team Training meeting this month.

I used 4 of the new Narrow Notecards and envelopes and created a little box to hold them. 

The stamp set used is called You're Inspiring and it really lovely. Daffodils (and Tulips) are my favourite flower, so I couldn't resist this set when I saw it :o)

The images were coloured using an Aqua Painter with the ink pads.

The sentiments in this set are lovely, but I wanted to make 'Thank You' cards, so chose one from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

Beautiful Peacock - With Heartfelt Blooms

I thought I had finished playing with Beautiful Peacock for now, BUT after creating this lovely background it seemed the perfect addition to finish off this card :o)

Both the Beautiful Peacock and Heartfelt Blooms are part of the current Sale-a-Bration promotions. You can select either of them for FREE with a purchase of £45 from my online store. OR you can select both with a purchase of £90.

I created the background in the same way that I created the ones I have shown you before HERE. Once I had decided to use the Beautiful Peacock set, I chose one of the flourishes and Heat Embossed this using White Powder all over the background. 

I stamped the feathers for the Peacock first using Soft Sky ink. The Peacock's body was then stamped using Sahara Sand ink.

I used Clear Wink of Stealla all over the feathers. This looks beautiful in real life, but sadly I couldn't pick it up with my camera :o(

Happy Wishes with Definitely Dahlia

I used Happy Wishes again for today's card. This is one of the FREE stamp sets you can select with an order of £90. It's a big set, which is why you have to spend more to earn it for FREE. You can find all the details of the Sale-a-Bration promotion in the flyer shown in my left hand sidebar.

For the main image, I inked up my stamp using Bermuda Bay ink and then tapped Night of Navy ink just on the top of it before stamping it down. 

I used Soft Sky ink with the Definitely Dahlia background stamp on the large White mat.
