Card Club update

Unfortunately, September happens to be a very busy month and I will not be able to hold a card club.  I will try to figure a day in October for us to meet up.  I promise to have some new techniques for us to do.

Bouncing Brayer Graduation Card

Here's another bouncing brayer card.  They are so much fun to make and super quick.  The background is full of color and design that you don't need to put too much embellishment on it.  Today we are going to my nephew's graduation/college farewell party.  I cut the graduation cap from my sure cuts alot and I used Marina Mist, Real Red & Night of Navy ink by SU.  I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder with the scibbles around the edge of my die cut.  If anyone is ever interested in the files that I cut out with the SCAL, just let me know and I can email it to you.

Fabulous Explosion Box

My cousin Teresa was turning 40 so I got her a pretty necklace and earring set for her birthday.  I thought it would be great to make an explosion box to wrap it in.  Her favorite color is green, so I made it green with a touch of pink to match her card.  I figured that she could use it to put her party pictures in and it's already labeled for her 40th.  She loved it!

Fabulous at 40

My cousin Teresa is turning 40 this coming Saturday.  I knew that I wanted to make a fabulous card because 40 is a very special birthday.  I thought that this little lady from the Forever Young cricut cartridge would be perfect for her card and I used some more of that white glitter paper for the 40 that I picked up at Target for .99.  This card is much larger then the A2 ones I usually make (5 1/2 x 8) so I had to think of a lot of fillers.  I used the devine swirls on the pink behind the girl and the sentiment came from my usual mega mixed messages by paper trey ink.  Hope you like!

Graduation Card

I just got home from a graduation party at my neighbor's house.  I had to hustle last night to put a card together but had no idea what her college colors were to even give me a clue where to start.  Since I didn't have any  colors to go by, I just went on my own inspiration.  I had some white glitter paper and I used a graduation cap that I found online that I cut with my SCAL and my cricut.  I also used the banner image from my scal to deliver my sentiment.  I think that the paper really made the card.  Hope you like it.
