Playdate Fun...


So last Saturday JT and I indulged in an epic 3hr playdate....

We played with lots of fun stuff and chatted and caught up - it was fun.

We based some of the cards on a Bo Bunny stamp set I had bought for each of us (you might remember them from my Jan Tim Holtz tag..)-

We also used our gelatos. I gave them to JT because I knew she would love them, as she loves Crayons and Gelatos are seriously the next step up from crayons :)
We stamped with them, it's a totally super crazy messy fun technique.

I also threw in some random stuff that was on my desk - tags (shop bought) and ready made pinwheels.. I used a ton of scraps too.

Here are the cards -

The main card today uses gelatos stamped onto watercolour paper. You spritz the stamp and colour the gelato directly on to it. It's a touch random, but I really like it. I die cut a piece from my larger piece using a SSS stitched die. I added a tag (shop bought) from my desk and a scrap piece of ribbon.

1 - Bo Bunny stamps, ready made pinwheel, heat embossed sentiment

2 - Bo Bunny stamps, tag (ready made from TJMaxx) from my desk, orange gem

3 - Bo Bunny stamps, scrap papers and a SSS stamp, Versamark Brick ink and SSS white ink

Such fun to make and I know - only 4 cards in 3hrs?! But we also consulted on our DT makes, showed each other what else we have been making, gossiped, you know like when you are in the same room :)

It's always fun, but it's bittersweet as it makes me miss my girl JT even more..



  1. This totally reminds me that I need to post about our playdate last week! The arrow card is probably my favorite becuase it's so eye catching. But I loved trying that technique with the gelatos, that was a WIN. x

    1. Yeah I seriously love that technique. I love this stamp set, lots of possibilities. Cx

    2. Love all these Claire, looks like you had a great playdate! Hugs Carole Z X
