Card Kit Fun! Operation Write Home

I hosted my first ever Oriental Stamp Arts swap this last week and this has turned out to be a lot of fun and not too much work.  The theme was Geisha and with this swap, you make a card and stamp off the same images and send them with the card along with another base and envelope and embellishments.  The receiver will then have the card that is made and a "kit" to make their own!
I have received two stunning cards along with kits and I will post those after I get them made up - they are both real beauties.


These tag stamps are beauties from Art Neko, I decided to put them all on my Mega block to stamp them out.  I love this mega block, it is very easy to use and you get perfect images every time.  I think I mentioned in a few posts back I took all my large background stamps off their wood blocks and now use them on the Mega block.  I did keep all those pretty wood blocks, leaving them on the shelf for display - I'm not totally crazy!!


I used two sheets of green printed card stock for an 8x8 pad I had called Far East, ran it through the eBosser and then added gold oink over it.  I let this dry overnight as I did not heat emboss it.



These colors are really a warm rich green with rust and plum.  I can't retake the photo as they were mailed a few days ago and I didn't discover the problem with this on until tonight.  Oh well, just warm it up in your imagination! These arA7 size and I used my 100lb deckle edge paper for the bases.

Making cards is a great outlet for creativity and some else benefits from them too!!  It time for me to be hosting a OWH card party (Operation Write Home - http://operationwritehome.org/blog/)
If anyone local is interested in a fun night for a good cause drop me a line!!
Thanks for stopping by!
