A good friend of mine, Jodyann and I often get together to be 'crafty' as I put it, where we either scrapbook, create cards, try new techniques, design projects etc. As our menfolk were away this weekend either working or watching cars racing around the track at Symmons Plains we decided to get together for a craft session.
I felt some of the cards in my last OSW were not quite to the style or standard I like and so Jodyann and I decided to re-use the same template, using one sheet of DSP - Ginger Blossom (from the upcoming new Summer Mini Catalogue) - and we picked a sheet and matching cardstock - Very Vanilla, River Rock, Ruby Red, Groovy Guava and Cameo Coral (the Cameo Coral is not a colour we use often and this combination was definately not a favourite of ours, but we decided to put ourselves outside of our comfort zone and see what we could produce!). We deciding by re-using the same template, together perhaps we could modify the template or card designs to better effect -- and I must say we were pleased with the results! I modified my template slightly, in particular card design Nos 7, 10, 13 and 14, and we added some background stamping to some of the card bases, as well as adding some additional layers to others!
Here is a photo of all 15 cards and the modified templates we used. You can click on the video link below to view the cards individually and let me know what you think of our results. Feel free to use the template to create your own suite of cards and if you do, then leave a comment here on my blog with a link to your creations as I would love to see what you do with the templates.
