Club Cards for April

We’re meeting a little later this month, so I wanted to get some retiring papers into the mix before they were gone:

This basket was created with the Baskets and Blooms die.  I modified it a little so it was a longer basket.  I used Pretty in Pink for the basket and the flower.  The flower was created with the Scallop Circle Punch and the brads from the mini that will expire on April 31st.  Melon Mambo ribbon was also tied on.

This card was created using Whisper White, Certainly Celery, and Pink Passion.  I also used Vellum cardstock for the wings.  The stamp set is Pick A Petal.  I embossed the wings with Glassy Glaze after stamping them with Pink Passion Classic Ink.  I also used a paper piercer  and a set from the mini for the greeting (can’t think of the name right now… 🙂  ).

This card was inspired by the IBC (pg. 55).  I recreated it almost exactly, except no fresh lavender to be found!  This one holds a packet of seeds.  I used Mellow Moss textured cardstock, Lavender Lace, and Very Vanilla.  I used Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, and Perfect Plum for inks.  I then sewed the whole thing with white sewing floss and my sewing machine.

This card is cased entirely from my upline Angie.  Thanks Angie!!! 🙂  She is so creative!!  This card uses Very Vanilla (she used Ivory Naturals), Old Olive, Not Quite Navy.  Use Versamark for the ink and then Stampin’ Pastels and sponge daubers to apply the pastels.  Rough up the edges with the distressing tools and ink with Close to Cocoa.  Stamp greeting with Close to Cocoa.

There’s still room if you would like to join us on Saturday at 10am.  Let me know! 🙂

Order online anytime

New Mini Goodies

I just love these new clear mount stamps (they are NOT the clear type stamps that other companies sell).  Same old SU! rubber, mounted on a clear block for easy positioning! 🙂  They are fabulous! I’m going to be building up my collection of clear mounts rather quickly!

I also can’t stop ooohing and ahhhing over the new punch style!  Today was the first day I’ve used them, and the corner and edge punches are so easy to line up and make things look beautiful!

Here are some of the cards we will be making at my next class in February.  I’ll give credit under each where due.

I Case’d this cute treat holder from Patti.  She’s got a picture tutorial on her site you will want to check out! 🙂

This card is pretty much straight from the Mini.  I loved the Eggcoutrements set and the way this card was laid out.  I changed it just a bit to make it easier to duplicate for my class.

I saw a card similar to this one in the Mini as well.  It was made with the “hugs” cards that are available (forgot to order them!!), so I improvised with the new Scallop Corner Punch and Scallop Edge Punch.  I also used the new extra large Bird and Leaf punch (new favorite!!) and the Vintage Labels Clear Mount set (you can get it free with a $50 purchase thanks to Sale-A-Bration!).

These next two are case’d from Shelli Gardner.  She showed them at the Leadership conference (I’ll get there one day!) and I wanted to make them so that you knew that from now until Feburary 28th, SU! will donate $2 from every I {heart} Hearts set purchased to the Haiti Relief Efforts.  You can click here to order.

Hope you enjoy them!  Contact me or click here to order your supplies or to receive a Mini Catalog of your own!
