Single Layer Card and Some Card News

Almost Happy New Year Everyone!  I wanted to start off with some stamp news first, In December we finished our 2nd Stamp Club and If anyone is interested in starting up again I will need to know as soon as possible.  We are looking for 6 people to do $25 per month for 6 months and each month someone new will be the hostess and getting the hostess benefits  OR we can do 3 people to do $50 per month for 3 months or every other month and receive hostess benefits.  Please let me know as soon as you can so that we can start in January.  Other news,  On January 4th Stampin Up! will be starting their Occasions Mini promotion.  The new catalogs will be online and if you would like to get a hard copy, let me know and I'll mail you one.

Now on with the card.  The feather stamp used in this card is from the Natures Nest stamp set.  I like to take an image and turn it into something else and this is what I came up with.  This is a single layer card that probably took about 10 minutes to make from beginning to end.

Post It note Holder for the fridge (great teacher gift)

Last night we had card club and I gave away this adorable post it note holder that also has a magnet on back so you can keep it on the fridge.  I wrapped chipboard in some holiday paper and added the red ribbon.  I also wrapped the binder clip in the same paper and the paper is also inside of the rsvp pen.  It always looks nicer when everything coordinates.  Last night's cards should be posted by tomorrow.
                                          Happy Stamping!

Masculine Card with my Scraps

This is a card that I made for my Husband's Birthday.  I'm always saying that it's a challenge to make a masculine card because I don't get to use any of my pretty flowers and butterflies but I'm pretty happy with the way this one came out.  I used the mosaic embossing folder on the piece of Night of Navy and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  The leaves used is from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set from Stampin Up!.  All of the other papers are just scraps,  Card base-river rock, Top layer Misc. designer paper, and banner is certainly Celery.  The sentiment came from one of our newest hostess sets called Birthday Wishes (I think???) and I added a little liquid pearls.

Well, What else can you do when a bad storm takes away your power, internet and water.  SCRAPBOOK!!
Here are some pages that I got done yesterday during the hours of daylight.  No way could I ever do it with candlelight.  Mind you, I didn't have my cricut to work with so I just used what I had including stamps.

Language of Friendship

This little bird is so cute.  I love using stamp sets with coordinating punches.  It makes it so easy and quick to make a card.  We also made this one at last Friday's card club.  We all enjoyed using some of Stampin Up's new stamp sets from this new catalog.  My wish list is still very long but I managed to get my hands on a handful of new sets so far.  I'm actually creating this post on Saturday the 27th because we are due to get hurricane Irene tomorrow and I'm sure that there won't be any power for a little while so I figured that I would set this up ahead of time. 
Supplies used:
Stamps-Happiest birthday wishes, language of friendship, frame it
ink-soft suede, bravo burgandy
accessories-ribbon punch, 2 step bird punch, corner rounder punch
paper-soft suede, whisper white, patterned paper

Happy Stamping!

Recycle, Recycle, Recycle

I love using recyclable items in my cards.  I use a page from an old Hardy Boys book behind this piece of vellum in this card.  It was a real simple card and very easy to make at our card club.  The ladies found it very easy to color in these flower from the old fast and fabulous stamp set using Q tips. 

Supplies used:
stamps-fast and fabulous
paper-wisteria wonder, black, recycled book paper, whisper white, basic black
Ink-wisteria wonder, certainly celery

Faith in Nature

I thought that I would take my mind off of the upcoming hurricane and do a post today.  Here's one of the cards that we made at Friday's card club.  I've been wanting to do a lot of texture lately and I just love using these warm earth tones.  We did some dry embossing with the ms scoring board for our background piece of crushed curry and crimped this piece of pumpkin pie for the center.  This image is from one of the new hostess stamp sets in the Stampin Up! catalog.  It's called Faith in Nature.  Any order of $150.00 or more qualifies you for $25 worth of hostess sets or any other catalog item of your choice.

So Many Birthday Parties

We had back to back parties this weekend.  My daughter Alex had her twin friends Hannah and Sarah's party on Friday night and then we had my 2 oldest daughters Hayley & Alex's party on Saturday.  I remembered to take a photo of Sarah's card but not Hannah's.  Oh well.  Here it is.  It features that cute little owl.  We had so much fun playing with that punch at one of my card clubs that I wanted to bring it out again.   The photo isn't the greatest but you get the idea. 
Supplies used:
paper-pink pirouette, whisper white, old olive chocolate chip
Stamps-dot dot dot
Ink-old olive
Accessories-owl punch, little leaves sizzlet,ticket corner punch, rhinestones, white gel pen

Beautiful Wings

I can't believe that it took me so long but I finally ordered the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  It cuts out 5 different butterflies all at once.  It's a must have if you loves butterflies as much as I do.  I layered the 2 largest butterflies 3 times on my layered Wild Wasabi card stock.  I also used the En Fracais background stamp with whisper white ink.  It's a pretty quick card to make and the color combinations are endless.

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Emboss Resist

Here's another new In Color.  It's called Island Indigo.  It's soooo pretty!  We did the emboss resist using the flowers from the Inspired by Nature stamp set.  Then we used my new color spritzer with the island indigo marker and added these little splatters all over my background.  Cleaned my flower back off and then sponges the Indigo over one side of my card stock.  I was pretty happy with how it came out.  The spritzer takes a little practice but gives a nice touch if you just wanted to add a little color for texture.

Bleaching technique

I thought I'd share a card that we made last night at Card Club.  We did the bleaching technique with this flower from the Fifth Avenue stamp set.  We first embossed it in black and then used our aqua painters to color it in with bleach.  I almost couldn't stand to have the bleach in the room because it's so strong so I only put a little bit into a sweet treat cup and everyone shared.  I'm sure that we wouldn't have lasted long in my enclosed scrap room if I had more then that laying out.  We used the new Calypso Coral card stock by Stampin Up!.  At first I didn't think that I was too crazy about this color and now I have no more card stock left.  It's moved right up to being one of my favorites.

All supplies used:
Stamps-fifth avenue floral
Paper-Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Tools-black embossing powder, 1 1/8 circle punch, embossing folder, corner rounder, bleach

New Card Club night for the summer

Happy July everyone!!!  I had a great day today at the beach with my sister and all of our kids.  It was 96 degrees here today and it was so relaxing.  I figured that I would post our new and next card club date.  For this month I will be having our regular card club on a Monday night.  I know that our weekends are so busy with BBQ's and parties so Monday seems to work better.  I'm planning on having our next get together on July 18th at 7pm.  If you plan on attending please let me know. 

Happy Stamping!

Recycle Those Books

I have created this card but my friend Rachel who has a birthday coming up.  I wanted to make a card using some items from around the house.  I ended up using a page from my daughter's old Hardy Boys book.  It was a book that she didn't like and didn't even want to keep so I took it with me to my scraproom and went to work.  I'm really pleased with what I came up with but I'm very sad that this stamp set (cheers to you) is retiring at the end of this month.

Supplies used:
paper-chocolate chip card stock, whisper white, book page
Ink- soft suede, basic black
Accessories-red rinestones, certainly celery marker, real red marker, dazzling diamonds, certainly celery ribbon

Elements of Style

We got together for my monthly card club last night and we made some fabulous cards.  We also had some great goodies to match.  My friend Margaret brought over some chocolate covered strawberries that her and her daughter Zoe made for us and I served some sangria.  It really got our juices flowing (at least we would like to believe they did. lol ).  Here's a photo of the first card we made.   I know that you can't see it in the photo but I sprayed the whole card with some champagne shimmer mist.  It looked so nice in person.
supplies used:
paper-whisper white, river rock, elegant eggplant
Ink-elegant eggplant, river rock
accessories-basic pearls, embossing border
Stamp set-Elements of style, watercolor trio

Another Birthday Card

My sister Patty also had a birthday this month.  I've been having so much fun with the Cheers for You stamp set.  It's retiring at the end of this month so I'm so glad that I have it already.  I may make another one of these for a friend who also has a birthday this month.  It's super quick and easy to make but looking at the cocktail in the glass makes me want one and that strawberry looks so yummy!

Happy Birthday My little Monkey

My youngest daughter Ava turned 6 on Thursday.  After she fell alseep the other night, me and my other 2 daughters went down to my scrap room to make her birthday cards.  We always call her a little monkey so that's why I picked this stamp from the fox and friends set.  I'm so sad that this jumbo wheel is retiring.  It's called Classic stars and it makes a great background on cards or scrapbook pages.  I also added Dazzling diamonds to the monkey's bellys.  Hope you like it. 

Happy Stamping!

Open Sea Stamp Set

Here's one of the new stamp sets featured in our Summer mini catalog.  If you haven't got the Open Sea set yet, you must get it.  It's great for Father's day, an adult male birthday or even a child's birthday.  It's great for any masculine card.  If you're like me, you probably keep buying all of those beautiful flower and butterfly stamp sets which I know are wonderful and as girls we can't resist.  But every once in a while we need to give the guys a card too and I'm sure that they wouldn't appreciate a rose with some polka dots.  He he, that would be funny though.  On to the card, 
Supplies used:
paper-whisper white, chocolate chip, river rock
ink-crumb cake, soft suede
accessories-photo corner punch, white gel pen, misc. brads

My Brother-in-law Jeff celebrated a birthday yesterday.  I was so happy when I remembered that I had the Cheers to you stamp set and it had this beer mug that fits perfectly with Jeff.  I decided to make 2 more for the 2 more male birthdays that are coming up in the next few weeks.

Shirt Cards for Father's day are always a hit

I just love these male shirt cards.  They were a big hit last year when I made them for my husband and my father.  If I can get some time tomorrow, I will try and get a video up on how to make these.  My card club girls made this card last year before father's day but I couldn't resist making them again for anyone else who hasn't seen them yet.

Lovely as a Tree

May Card Club

I'm sure that some of you may have noticed in my post about the card swap that I'm doing May's card club on the 13th.  Our swap cards will also be due on that night.  If you are mailing them.  Be sure to get them in my mail at least 3 days prior to the swap.  We will be doing some masculine cards in honor of father's day and also doing some other cards with a stamp set that hasn't been used yet in card club.  I would need to know by May 8th if you'll be attending.  

Happy Stamping!

Baby Card

I don't know why I don't do this more often but today I went to my stamp room because my juices were flowing with inspiration.  I wanted to make a baby card, I don't know why because I'm not going to a baby shower or anything but it's good to have one in my supply in case I need one.  I wanted to create a scene so I started with this field of multi greens and then stamped these cute little bees and little bird.  I also tried out my new champagne shimmer mist.  Hopefully you can see it in the photo.  It gave my card stock such a great shimmer all around.   I'll list the recipe below the picture.

Supplies used on this card

stamps-pocket silouettes, sweet summer, mega mixed messages (PTI)
Ink- certainly celery, wild wasabi, always artichoke, perfect plum, bashful blue, marina mist
Paper-whisper white, marina mist, yellow(non su), SU DP (butterflies)

Who's ready for another card swap???

Well,  Since our first swap was such a success, I figured that I would do another one.  I think that a baby swap would be perfect for this time of the year.  It seems that there are so many babies born in the spring and we are always in need of a baby shower card, new baby card or Christening card.  It can be for boy or girl and be creative.  The rules are similar to the demonstrator swaps.  

1. Once everyone signs up, I'll let you know how many cards you need to make
2. You make all identical cards in 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (envelopes not needed)
3. Make sure that all of your layers are glued well and be sure that there are no smudges. 
4. Please use Stampin Up! products so that they can easily be duplicated. 
5. Cards will be due by May 13th. (our next card club)
6. If you can't attend card club that night.  Be sure to mail your cards to my in a zip lock bag with a self addressed stamped envelope with the same postage as it took to mail them.  I'll mail your swap cards back to you on May 16th.

Any questions, just let me know.  Please reply to the swap by April 22nd if you would like to participate.
