Chocolate Cake and Easter Eggs - and some Stamping.

It was our stamper's ten meeting last night and what a yummy treat we had! One of the members - Alex - brought a delicious, gooey chocolate cake that she had made especially for us! I'm sorry - I just have to show it to you!

So . . . now you've wiped the drool off your monitor, here are the cards we made:

This one uses the gorgeous Baroque Motifs set, along with Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla card. The flowers were stamped in Elegant Eggplant on a separate piece of card and cut out before gluing on top of the Old Olive stamped flourish. The flowers were also stamped in Old Olive ink on the Old Olive card strip. Finished off with a scalloped strip of Elegant Eggplant, same colour of ribbon and birthday greeting from Sincere Salutations.

This one is a complete case of a card by Helen, but it's such a lovely card I had to do it! So simple too. The stack of presents from the SAB Happy Moments set was stamped in Basic Grey ink and then watercoloured with the crayons and aqua painter in Night of Navy and Ruby Red on Confetti White card, which takes watercolouring very well. Then it was cut out and had some silver elastic cord added before being mounted on a piece of kraft with dimensionals. A little bit of white doodling around the edges with the white gel pen, before matting with more Confetti White, and then mounted on to a Night of Navy card base. The greeting was stamped in Night of Navy and then punched out with the Word Window punch, glued on to the card base, and finished off with a Night of Navy brad.

We also made one of these - a little gift pouch decorated as designed by Monica . Aren't they cute? We made the design on the left filled with the mini eggs. The one on the right is an exact case of the one done by Monica, and has a few crafting goodies in it. There's no gluing involved in making these pouches - just folding, and then the decorations stuck on. The paper on the left hand pouch is from the Tea Party designer paper set, and the one on the right from Tea and Crumpets.

Lots of my members are too far away to come to the meetings, so they receive the ingredients for the make and takes in with their orders - along with a challenge pack to enter into a prize draw for free goodies. Sorry - no chocolate cake in the orders though!

If you would like to join in the fun either in person or as a distance member, I have two places left in the group that has just started. Click here for more details, and use the contact me tab above to reserve yourself a spot.
