February's Card Club

February's Card Club

By request, I have been asked if we could make the embellished candle that we never got to make in December's class.  It got a ton of attention when I posted it for a December Card Club but it was a hard time of year for the regular girls to get together.  We will make it a neutral floral design that would be great as some home decor around your own home or you can give it as a birthday gift or even duplicate for mother's day.  We will also be making some cards that match to go along with it.  The price of this class will be $15 to cover the cost of supplies needed.  Starting at this card club I will need payment for the class in advance.  Class is on February 18th at 7pm and payment is due no later than the 12th.  Contact me for my address if you are sending a check or you can paypal me.  Your spot for that night will be saved once I've received your payment.

Love is in the air

Here once again is another Valentine's day card.  I made these flower petals using the largest heart in the Heart to Heart punch.  I am really loving the way this one came out.  I also used the pinking heart border punch and the scallop sentiment is from the Love you Much stamp set.  I worked this card around the great faux grass.  It's a wonderful way to add some dimension to a card with just some card stock and a pair of scissors.  Hope you like it.

Build a Blossom Tutorial

I've been having so much fun with the new Build a Blossom stamp set and coordinating punch.  Since it's so new, I've decided to do a video on it.   I know that some of you have seen it in the new Occasions Mini Catalog and this way you can get a sneak peek.   Sorry but my video editing is still not that great.

Valentine's Swap Card

I've entered my very first card swap.  I heard that it's very addicting but I thought that it would be fun and I can't wait to see what other people came up with.  It's a valentine themed swap and I wanted to do some kind of technique for my cards so I did the faux silk technique.  I made 6 of these same cards and am going to get 5 different cards back from other demonstrators.  They should be arriving any day now.

Happy Birthday Dad

My father just celebrated his 62nd Birthday.  Masculine cards are not my favorite but I've been dying to use this stamp set since I got it.  It's called Uncharted Territory.

Valentine's sweet treat pops

Here's another project that we did at our cardclub.  It's using the sweet treat cups.  They were so easy to make and I even found some red hots to put inside.  I Loved these when I was a kid.  I'll be making these for my daughter's kindergarten class next month for valentine's day.  She so excited.

Valentine's Day Card #3

We finished off our card club with this card.  It was a quick and simple single layed card.  Even though it didn't have all the shimmer and glitter that the others had, I still got all the Ohhs and Ahhs when the girls saw it.  I actually turned it into an Anniversary card for my parents.  They celebrated 41 years yesterday.

Valentine's day card #2

Here's the 2nd card from our past card club.  It has a different kind of a fold and I think that's why I wanted to try it.  Here are the dimensions of the cuts in case you want to try it yourself.

Red cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 4 1/4.  Cut 1 1/4 off of one side. 
Kraft cardstock cut at 6 1/2 x 4.
Embellish as desired.

See you tomorrow with another Valentine's card!

Valentines Day Cards

With Valentine's day right around the corner, I made Friday night's card club all about LOVE.  We made this great gate fold card.  Everyone loved the red glitter chipboard.  This stamp set called Love You Much has so many great stamps.  We used it in 3 of our projects.  I also used the jumbo stampin wheel I{Love} Love as a background pattern.

Thank You!

I've had this stamp set for about 3 months now and I'm just now using it for the first time.  It's one of my favorites but I've been so into all the Christmas stamps that I haven't got to play with this one yet.  I'm sending out a Thank You to someone for a Christmas gift that she sent and I figured that this one was so pretty that it didn't need much embellishment.  Here's what I came up with.

Supplies include:
Card base-River rock/stampin up
Layer-Kraft/non stampin up
Top layer-Whisper White/stampin up
Stamp set-5th Avenue Floral & because I care/stampin up
Ink-Perfect Plum & Soft Suede/stampin up
Ribbon-non stampin up
