Stampin' up February 2014

Tonight is our club night and once again we have our sketch challenge. The sketch challenge for this month is from Freshly Made Sketches

I LOVE how this card turned out. I was trying to go for a  bit of a shabby look.
I started off using my favorite colour cardstock from Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana! the next layer I used white cardstock and embossed using the alphabet press folder. I then stamped using the colours apricot appeal and cameo coral along with the stamp set called Tape It. The happy birthday stamp came from the happiest birthday wishes stamp set. I used the deco labels thinlit dies to cut the frames out. I then did some stitching and tucked in some tulle.

Now I am off to go learn some tips and tricks !

I'll be back
If you live in Saskatchewan, have a great long weekend! It's family day on Monday :)
and to all my other readers have a great weekend !

Stampin Up Jan 2014

Hard to believe,  February club night is coming up! I only now realized that I didn't post January club cards so here it goes.

This first card is the one I made for the card sketch challenge. The sketch came from
Try Stampin on Tuesday

and here are the cards that we made in our January club

This first card is pretty cool a twist on the square thinlit and then we did some colouring.
This idea came from Dreaming about rubberstamps

Second card
Brayered Vellum Flowers Card
This technique was new to me :) the flowers were made from white vellum cardstock. The vellum was preinked in yellow, blue, and red ink. We stamped, punched, and used a stylist to make our petals stand out. This was a great card to make.
The idea comes from Stamp Paper Scissors (Jan Tink)

Now for out last item we made a card that becomes a bag topper. What a great idea, love it!!

Tag Topper Punch Bag Hanger was case'd from Wee Inklings
I just happened to have a white bag and I attached it. The card is removeable. It just slides into the slot. 

What a great lookin' gift bag!

Now I am off to go make my card for this February sketch challenge

Take care
