Monthly Card Club
Good evening y'all,
One Saturday morning a month, I get together with some lovely ladies to make cards. The cards below are the ones we made earlier today (minus the third card). I think the first one is my favorite out of all the cards I have made.
1) Made with a two-step stamp set from StampingUp!. You stamp the bottom, bulkier stamp in a light color first, then stamp the more detailed top stamp in a darker or bolder color over it to make a shadow effect.
2) This card was made using a tropical stamp set - also from StampingUp! - but using bleach instead of ink. The bleach slowly takes the color out of the paper.
3)I didn't make this card at the card club, but I was waiting until my pastel brads came in to finish it. I picked them up this morning, so tada! I made this card with brads, birthday themed ribbon and a birthday present embellishment I made when I borrowed Susan's Cricut. Thanks Susan!
My next post will probably be all about my experience at the Somerset NJ Scrapbooking Expo, next Friday and Saturday. I am going both days, once with cousin Kim and the other day with Partner-In-Crime Susan, and I am SOOOOOO excited!!!!
Til then, xoxo....
