These are the make and takes from my last team gathering a couple of weeks ago. I used the Madison Avenue stamp set - free with a $50 order - for the first time here. I started with In Color Patterned Paper (Wisteria Wonder), adding a strip of Vine-embossed (another SAB freebie) Elegant Eggplant, and a Whisper White apothecary accent diecut.
Kim's make and take used the same sketch I used on my chalkboard technique card here. She used the Hearts a Flutter framelits to diecut the hearts from More Amore Specialty dsp, and popped them up on an embossed strip of Pool Party with a designer-label-punch sentiment from Delightful Dozen.
Mary Ann's make and take uses the Spring Sampler stamp set with Sunshine and Sprinkles dsp and a sentiment from Rain or Shine.
Barb A. followed a sketch challenge for her make and take. She used For the Birds stamp set and Sycamore Street dsp with the Cloudy Day embossing folder.
