Crop Night

Well we had a very busy Crop and Craft Night last night with 12 ladies signed up.  There were card makers and scrapbookers there as well as some who love both crafts.  One innovative lady had saved a leftover piece from her Distress Ink class and used it very effectively as a frame for a photo.....nice job!  Lots of ideas flowed back and forth around the tables as wall hangings and mini albums as well as double page spreads were made.  In the midst of that creativity they all had an opportunity to make these two cards.  The valentine card (this one was for you Krista...missed having you with us) used text fill which can be a great accent on a scrapbook page and the other featured Distress Ink, dry embossing and sanding.  This too can be used to create your own paper for a page.

Oh did I mention all the fun and laughter that happened as well as tutorials on the Silhouette......a very busy night!  You have to sign up early to share the fun.


  1. The card on the right, is the back ground paper patterned and put through the cuttlebug? Maybe its yellow and inked, I can't quite make out how it been done. Like the effect, nice looking cards.

    Sounds like a creative and busy evening was had by all.

    The card you asked about was Lemon Drop from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey line. Stamped with two different Impression Obsession background stamps using Rusty Hinge Distess Ink. Then it was put through the Cuttlebug using the Moroccan Screen folder and the high points lightly sanded to allow the white of the cardstock core to show through.
    If you click on the card you will get a larger view and see that there are lines and spatters stamped on the card.
    Thanks for asking...can be a quick technique you could use on a scrapbook page as well as a card.
