September Stamp Club - Spring Card

For this months stamp club we made a spring card. This card is suprisingly easy and has a great wow factor. Here are the two samples I made for the club.
The first card is made with a Night of Navy cardstock base. The Designer Series Paper is from Urban Oasis. The cute frame was done using the Scallop Edge punch and the flowers are punched with the Boho Blossoms punch. The greeting is from the Oval All stamp set that is available in the Spring Mini Catalogue until 30 November 2009.

For the base of this card I used some retired paper that was from a Simply Scrappin' kit. I stamped the tools from the Totally Tools set onto Whisper White card, coloured them in with markers and added Crystal Effects to give the handles a three dimensional look. The greeting is from the Wonderful Favourite set and I embossed it in silver onto Ruby Red card. I sent this card to my dad for fathers day.

Non Christmas cards using Season of Joy

The first card was done using the Versamark resist technique on gloss card. The colours are Elegant Eggplant and Pretty in Pink.

The colours on the second card are Tangarine Tango and Pink Passion. I used the Double Rectangle punch to make the holes I threaded the Whisper White ribbon through. The greeting is from the level 1 hostess set, Best Yet

Christmas Cards

Here are a couple of Christmas cards using the Season of Joy set, Old Olive and Real Red card I made for a fundraiser. They needed to be simple cards for people to make. I've used the Eyelet Border punch on both of these.

Mason's 3rd Birthday Card

Once again I have reached for the Fishy Friends set when it came time to do a kids card. I know it's retired but I love it. I've been wanting to try one of these folded cards for ages and I'm happy with the result.
