Inky Active Cards

Both classes I took on Friday were a lot of fun. My favorite was this Inky Active card class, all the cards did something. For me, this was a first, I haven't made any of the cards like this before. Jackie, from Inky Antics was the instructor, and first she demonstrated using coloring pencils and OMS. Her company has the coolest blending stumps I have seen. All I have been able to find around here are the little ones that aren't much thicker or longer than a cotton swab. These were like Sharpies, they were great. Here are some of the cards we made:
I especially liked my coloring on this guy! This one should be mounted onto a card base but I took the picture before I did that and it also has a ribbon pull on the end to make it easier to pull to show the other side.

I think this was my favorite card though. It is hard to see in the picture, but when you pull the ribbon at the top, there is something that comes out from each end of the card. The sentiment backed in green is actually a pocket that will hold cash. The base is also wide enough that if you changed the pocket it would hold a gift card.

All the stamps here are from Inky Antics and colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Not sure of the papers or anything because they were supplied. I bought a few of their stamps at the show and after my wallet recovers, I will be ordering more! Thanks for checking in with me. I am working a lot over the next couple of days so I may not have a lot of crafting time.
