I was going to get half of my Christmas cards done at a crafty retreat with some friends this weekend. I cut up some cardstock, pre-stamped a few things, packed things carefully (including determination) and headed off.
Five days later - the box of supplies still has not been opened. It was just hard to focus with all the giggling and Periscoping and borrowing other people's stamps, and spilling things all over the table, and using InstaKitty to put cats on people.
However, I DID open another box, and that was this adorable Hero Arts kit with a layering poinsettia.
You know I'm a complete freak for layering sets, and this kit was wicked fun. It came with five of the mini ink cubes (perfect for using with the MISTI since it's a layering set), dies, stamps and embellishments.
This fun little bundle was the only thing that enabled me to make a single, finished card in five days of creative chaos and I really enjoyed it, so I am participating in a little hop about it today. Here's a walkthrough that will explain the contents better than I did :).
Love the teeny leaf dies - I put those down on the cardstock and then popped the two poinsettias up over them. I sponged the edges of the flowers and the leaves withe the darkest red and green of the four with a Fantastix. The sentiment and the rhinestones are from the kit.
Now you should see what everyone else did with the kit, so please check out their work below. I got to see Kathy's card in real life and it's amazing. The soft pinks she got with her second generation stamping are really beautiful.
Also - I have the winner of the Online Card Classes Class from this post - so see if there is some beautiful watercoloring in your future!
Here's my winner! Please use the link in the sidebar to email me.
