June Stamp Club Cards

I don't usually post the cards before my stamp club, but my friend Terri - Hi Terri - can't make it tomorrow night and she wanted to see the cards in case there was anything she needed to order to make them. And just to update everyone on my card a night challenge. I have done pretty good about making the cards, I just haven't had time to post them. And we leave Monday for two weeks on vacation, so unless I find some time Friday, this will be my last post for a few weeks. Anyway, back to the cards....

This first card was made using a new stamp set "Fresh Cuts" that will be in the new Fall Catalog available August 11. But during the month of June only, you can order this set and the cost is $21.95. If you order this set, you can purchase the new die cut 4x4 cards for $5.00, otherwise the cards are $8.95 and you get 15 cards and envelopes.

I stamped the image in Old Olive ink. I then punched a flower using the 5 Petal Punch and attached it and a flower from the Flower Fusion kit with an Old Olive brad. On the inside of the card I attached a 3.75x3.75 piece of Old Olive cardstock with Stampin Dimensionals. I also stamped an image on the envelope. This is a very quick and easy card to make.

This next card uses the stamp set Bloomin Beautiful that is in the mini catalog. Remember you can order from the mini through the month of June (even thought the catalog says May 31).

I stamped the image in versamark ink, then colored the image with Stampin Up chalks. The cardbase is Cameo Coral (my favorite color this month) and I layered the image with Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used the distressor tool to give it the rough edges. The paper on the side is a piece of Designer paper from Berry Bliss. I tied a piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon around the card.

This last card is similar to the one we made last month. I stamped the background stamp Print Pattern in Green Galore ink on Green Galore cardstock. I added the white dots with the gel pen (last month we used the paint pen and made lines). The flower image was done by coloring the stamp itself with Pixie Pink & Green Galore crayons and then spraying the stamp lightly with water and stamping on Water Color paper. I used the Word Window punch with Pixie Pink Cardstock and attached that to the cardbase and added a black brad. The cool thing on this card (I think it's cool anyway) is the beads that I attached with a staple. I will just have to show you this Terri. Anyway that is pretty much that.

I did make a Stationary in a Box as a hostess gift for Debbie. IF I have time I will post a picture of it tomorrow. I have to get my hair done at 8:00am and Gracie (my poodle)has to get her hair done at 12:30, we both have to look good for vacation you know. And I still have to clean house yet.

The bloomin' card is beautiful! You did a wonderful job coloring the image with the pastels.
