Isn't this a cute image - he looks so relaxed!  Image is a Penny Black stamp that I got at a recent garage sale and I colored him with my favorites - Copics and chalks.  Background is light blue paper that I put through the Cuttlebug with a Clouds folder.  Think he turned out cute and and hope you stay cool during the summer!

Die Cut Mason Jar

Another mason jar only this one is the whole card!  I like shape cards and saw several ideas on the internet and so had to come up with my own.  I cut the jar from the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge, cut it just the right size to fit into an A2 envelope.  Then I embellished with other die cuts.  This card can be used for a lot of different occasions and you can even put different things in the jar for different seasons.  I can't wait to see what else I create with this image, you will be seeing more of it for sure!

August 2013 Stamp Club

The cards that we make in our Stamp Club are always so pretty and neat.  I especially like it when we learn something completely new.  The last card, the lavender card, was made with blue painters tape!  You take a strip of tape and put it on your stamp pad, ink it up, then place on the card and pull it up.  It leaves the impression of the ink - so very cool - will be making more of this style soon.  Thanks, Diane, for more great cards - love them all!

Mason Jars

Ever make a card and like it so much that you make more in different colors?  Well that is what happened to this one and now I can't decide which one I like the best - can you?  The mason jar was cut out with a Nestabilities die and then I cut the inside out of it.  Put a piece of vellum as the 'glass' and then put a piece of blue behind that for the 'water'.  For the flowers just used a punch and then pop dotted them all .  Used a piece of brown string for the top of the jar so that I could hang the little note.  I think they turned out so cute!

July 2013 - Stamp Club

More great cards from Card Club!  Really like the black butterfly and the background made with a stamping block, what a cool idea!  And the next card that is put through a embossing folder and then sanded.  Another cool idea - love it when my cards have dimension!  Thanks, Diane for all these ideas!
