Ever played Chinese Whispers?? I joined with some of my stamping friends to do a crafty version and it was so much fun. The lovely Tina organised it and started things rolling with a card. She emailed a photo of it to the next person on the list. They made a card inspired by Tina's then emailed a picture of just their card to the next person on the list, and so on til we reached the end of the group. Tina got copied in on all the emails and shared the whole collection of card photos with us at the end. It was heaps of fun seeing how the cards changed as people took their inspiration and added their own tweak.
Now that we've finished we thought it'd be fun to show you the set of cards. For this blog hop it'd be best to start at the start which is Tina's blog (you can find it here) then follow the links along.
I received my email from Christine and was inspired to make this card .......
Colours: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand
Tools: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Spritzer, Modern Label Punch
Stamp Sets: Summer Solstice and Creative Elements
I love the 'create' from Creative Elements - fits nicely into the Modern Label Punch too.
And I LOVE the new seam binding ribbon. Didn't catch my eye at all in the catalogue at first but got one roll and now a couple of months later I have quite a collection of them! They're so nice to work with.
Now I photographed my card and sent that through to Genna. (She hasn't got a blog just yet but you can visit her Stampin' Up website here.)
Genna made this one (isn't it gorgeous!)
Genna then emailed the photo of her card to Elaine. Elaine hasn't got a blog so I'm showing you her creation as well. Here's Elaine's creation - the next fabulous creation in the 'Chinese Whisper.'
Elaine emailed the photo of her card to Amanda and Amanda created this beautiful card.
(I'm sharing it as Amanda doesn't have a blog. Hmmm perhaps you could leave a comment to let Genna and Elaine and Amanda know how much you love their cards - they might be inspired to start blogging which would be a treat for all of us as they make such beautiful projects! Grin. )
Now you've got the idea I'm sure. Next in the chain was Di. You can see Di's elegant card over at her blog here. Pop on over to her blog to see the next cards in the series.
Our craft game was so much fun we've launched off into Round 2. Hope you enjoy a peek at the Round 1 cards as they evolved. To me it seems to symbolise the world of crafters, where we share ideas and find inspiration from others and get together to have fun with our hobby.
Do you have some crafty friends? You might like to give this game a go. It is lots of fun. You could try the same idea with scrapbooking layouts too.
