August Card Club

I just wrapped up my card clubs for the month.  I love these girls!  We have so much fun.

I just love, love, love this owl punch.  I think I gasped when I 1st saw it in the new catalog. :)   (I am, after all, addicted to all things punch related, so you know I looked there 1st!)

#118074, $16.95

We used li’l owlie on this first card.

How cute is he with that Play date designer series paper?

#117168, $9.95 (12 sheets!)

This is the inside of that one.

On that card we also used the woodgrain stamp (a must have for the owl peek cards!) and the uber yummy designer buttons. (And yes, more punches.)

For our 2nd card, I did it again … I couldn’t help myself.  I am a sucker for a cute card that must be replicated.  This was the original (and hey, LW and I have the same initials :) ), and here is our very similar version.

(The one we made in club did vary a little as this was my prototype, but close enough.  I should have taken a more accurate picture later.)

Are you noticing a theme yet with the crumb cake color as our card base?  Well, yes, I didn’t realize this until I was done with all 3 cards. :)   No secret that it’s a favorite.  Here is our 3rd card using (gasp) crumb cake as a base color …

This one was very directly inspired by Nance — thank you! :)

That stamp set, apple blossoms, is one of my favorites right now.  It’s a hostess set, meaning you can get it for free by hosting a party with me.  I love free. :)

And that little bitty tag?  Cute, no?  That is using the tiny tags stamp set and cute little jewelry tag punch.

Okie dokie, bye!

July Card Club — oopsie, belated!

I never posted our club cards from July, oops!  Quick, before the kids’ quiet moment passes! :)    ( … so I have approx. 14 seconds … )

This 1st card is directly inspired by Marie (again) with just some color changes and minor doo-dads.

We used the Friends Never Fade stamp set,

the vintage wallpaper embossing die (with the Big Shot), the awesome Greenhouse Gala designer series paper,

the scallop trim border punch (a fave) and the cute li’l dainty 1/8″ taffeta ribbon in daffodil delight.

(I told you this would be quick … let me know if you have questions on any details.)

This next one is a fun technique with the Big Shot machine called (I believe) a half-cut card.

You can create this using a wide variety of shapes.  We used the scallop oval from our punch windows 

(and the movers & shapers curly label die.)  There are several videos and photo tutorials out there — here is a quick one from Dawn.

We used the Friends Never Fade stamp set again, and more of the Greenhouse Gala paper.  (Soooo versatile!!  I love that this paper is fun and funky on one side, and pretty and mellow on the other side.)

For our 3rd card we stepped away from the more “pretty” style and played a bit with the “cute” and playful style.

This stamp set is Things I Love.

We made the edging with the pinking hearts border punch, and the circles with varying sizes of circle punches.

On the inside we made sure to complete the thought :) — “but most of all … YOU!”

My 14 seconds are way more than up.  As I type this, my 4-year-old girl is tossing a scarf over her head calling, “throw it … catch it …” over and over.  It has landed on me and the laptop twice so far.  Think she wants attention? :)   Bye!

p.s. stay tuned, I have August club projects to share soon!
