Hello everyone. Now that the crazy summer season is over, we have decided to start our Mystery Parts group again. This is where one of us sends “parts” to each other to make a card. These “parts” include card stock, Designer Series Paper and embellishments. The idea is for each of us to use the “parts” we are sent to make a card and then share the cards with each other. It is a lot of fun because each card is always so different from the others. The only rule is you have to use ALL the “parts” you are sent but you can always add more. To give credit, I got this idea from Diana Gibbs (who is an awesome Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator!
It was my turn to send the “parts” out this time. This is what I sent:
I sent them a Basic White card base, a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Tahitian Tide and Basic White card stock, a piece of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper and some Matte Black Dots. Here are the cards that were made:
Aren’t they all great?1? I have such talented friends!
Here is the card I made as the basis for sending everyone the products.
First I layered the Perfectly Penciled piece of Designer Series Paper onto a Basic White card base. Then I used two of the Scalloped Contours dies to cut the scalloped shapes from the Tahitian Tide and Basic White card stock. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Celebrate With Tags in Memento Black ink. I stamped the balloons in Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide ink and cut them out using the coordinating Celebration Tags Dies (you can save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and dies in a bundle). Lastly, I added the two Matte Black Dots.
I love how each card came out so differently even though we used the same materials.
