Stamp Club Cards - March 2012 - 2

I LOVE stamp club - we always make such pretty cards!  Card on left was scored to look like tile then stamped and used embossing powder to give it the glassy tile effect. I photographed it at an angle so that it shows the shine.  Card on right was stamped and then vellum was placed on top of white paper, very subtle effect.

Above yellow card was using the Blossom punch and Mixed Bunch stamp set - I just love how easy it is to make a card with just these two things.  The cat on the right - most made Easter cards (bunny stamped in brown), but I needed something different.  So stamped the cat hanging upside down and inside is stamped, 'hang in there' - so cute and perfect for what I needed the card for.  Another great time was had by all!

Stamp Club Cards - March 2012 - 1

The above cards were made at an Open House at Diane's in March.  These are such neat cards!  The flowers in bottom right corner were made from a magazine!  Punched out five large and five small scallop circles.  Attached all with a brad in the middle and then scrunched up each layer.  Way cool!  We attached these to a clear cello bag filled with Jelly Beans.  Have lots of ideas for these flowers!

Yellow Flowers

Needed to make a quick card and decided to use my new Blossom Punch and Mixed Bunch stamps from StampinUP.  I think this will become a favorite punch and stamp set.  So simple, just stamped the flowers and punched them out.  Popped up two of the flowers for a 3D effect, then included a butterfly from a Nestabilities die.  Added Stickles to centers of flowers and highlights on the butterfly.  I had a punch for the leaves and added 'veins' with a stylus.  Such a multipurpose card, can be used for any occasion!

A friend's daughter is going to have twins - so instead of waiting till the last minute, thought that I would make her a card and have it ready for the big day.  I saw this giraffe on Linda's and just fell in love with him, he was so cute!  Decided to copy it and change it up a bit to fit my needs.  Once again, just love to use punches for more than they were meant for.  So cute, hope she likes it!
And the inside of the card - just a continuation of the same giraffe looking in!

Once again, another great time with the girls!  Just love to make all these cards - love the colors and ideas.  Also, love the simplicity of some of the cards - so easy and so elegant!  Thanks, Diane!
