Crafty Bunch Craft night.........

We finally managed to have our Crafty Bunch meeting last night its the first time we've met up this year since all the floods.

Our two projects were a Criss Cross card and Men's cards, here are a few of my samples:




                                          I used Pion Design papers for this card....
 Heartfelt Creations paper and dies, plus Stampin Up punch for the borders.

 On this card I cut the fronts of the card the wrong way but instead of throwing it in the bin decided as the card actually stood up to leave it....Spellbinders dies on the front and a pre coloured image in the middle of the card..
 The Vintage image on this card I found on the internet...isn't she gorgeous...the papers are old K&Co ones and the dies are Spellbinders.


 The girls had this mans shirt project that they could also make, which is so quick to do...if you go onto Jill Lackfords blog, Jills Quills you will see a lovely colour selection of mens shirt  cards...

We did a lot of men's sample cards using sets of Stampin Up stamps that we have in our library box....most of my samples you have seen before but I did make this quick card yesterday morning from scraps of images using Stampin UP 'Wetlands Set'......stamped the reeds on the coloured card with Versamark, used a Stampin Up border punch....
The girls also stamped images so that they could take them home to make to colour and make cards with.  I think we all stuggle with mens cards but hopefully get gave our ladies a few ideas...

Its a very cold and foggy morning down in Somerset with no signs of clearing at the moment...but hopefully the sun will shine through at some point..

Its tidy up time in the craft room now ready to start again.
