Awesome Club Card

This is another one we made at Card Club and it is a real beauty.  I'm actually going to try mailing this one, maybe with a layer of foam over it and in a bubble wrap envelope as the flowers are raised up quite high.  Don't have the supplies to CASE this one, but sure do love it.

Hello there

This has to be one of my favorite cards (I admit, I have many favorites).  I scanned the paper and made the pattern just a bit smaller in order to make matching envelope liners - fun...  Instead of dimensionals, I used Fun Foam to raise the layer and made sure the Oval cutout was raised.  I liked working with the fun foam.  I used my tape runner combined with a drop of glue here and there for best adhesion.  Caroline taught this card at Club last month, so I borrowed the Hello There set from her and made a bunch of these.  I'll use some for friends, some to include in card gift packets, and donate some to the church for their use.  Thanks Caroline.  I used the Leaf sizzlet, along with the Petite Petal Punch and corresponding ink shades.  Each flower is finished with a 'gem'.  The paper pattern is carried into the inside piece, as well as a flower on the back where the 'logo' would go.  Enjoy

Open Seas, Club Card

Here's another card we made at our card club.  Caroline taught this beauty.  It is SU Open Seas, and done in Red, White and Blue, so I am using it for a 4th of July birthday card.  She stamped the 'log' softly in the background and then over-stamped the globe and anchors.  The Compass and Anchor were stamped and cut out and attached using red & white twine.  The Ship layer is raised with dimensionals and set off with the Color Dots.  An anchor on the inside completes the theme.  Nice job Caroline, thanks so much

Grandson Garrett is turning 16

I had way too much fun with this card, getting ready for this very special birthday.  Used Cloud paper, Digital Images, Die Cut Grass at roadside, and chalk marker for center line on road.  Note the car keys in his hand.

Garden Collage

Sure should have recorded this one when I first made it, now have to try to recall what I did and how - fat chance!
Base card was a Wausau Blue, with Green Galore, Black, Crumb Cake, and Watercolor Paper.
Base was 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Green was 3 1/4 x 3, and 3/4 x 1 3/4.  Black was 3 x 2 3/4, 5 1/2 x 1 1/4, 5/8 x 1 5/8.  Crumb Cake 1 x 5 1/2.  Watercolor 2 3/4 x 2 1/2, and 1/2 x 1 1/2.
Used SU Markers: Barely Banana, Tempting Turquoise and Creamy Caramel with Aqua Painter.  Small Gingham Ribbon, Turquoise Rhinestones.  Fussy Cut Bird and affix with dimensionals.  Green layer is also attached with dimensionals.  A hint of glitter on the butterfly and one the bird.   Hope that's everything.

Four Feathers - Two ways

  Card 1 is Tan (Wausau) on Crumb Cake. 
Card 2 is White on White.

Stamps :  Four Feathers. Ink:  Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Feathers Framelits Dies, Woodgrain Embossing Folder,   Big Shot, 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals,
(I Used Distressed Lines EF, plus Elegance or Lattice EF on feather)
Card Cuts:
Base Color:  8 ½ x 5 ½,   4 ¼ x 3
2nd Color:  5 ¼ x 4, 4 x 2 ¾

1. Fold & crease base card.  Run 2nd color (5 ¼ x 4) thru Emb. Folder.  Affix to base using dimensionals.
2. Affix Base Color ( 4 ¼ x 3) to card. 
3. Stamp feather onto 2nd color layer (4 x 2 ¾) at angle.  Stamp Sentiment.  Stamp and cut other one or two feathers.  Optional – run 1 feather through Embossing Folder.   Affix left feather.  I used Dimensional at the top and glued base of feather flat onto card.  I like this affect.   Affix to card using Dimensionals.
4.  Add tiny twine bow.
5.  Add feather to inside if desired, on back for logo if desired, and on envelope corner.  This ties everything together.
