Birthday club January and February 2017

I know I posted the January cards not long ago but I wanted to post it together with the Feb cards

For the month of January, I made four cards one I kept. Each one is a little different. Love the look of these.

Shaker cards! love how they turned out. I love jars so when I saw this stamp and die set I knew I had to get it. Glad I did.

I needed to make one more birthday card for a friend of mine. She just happens to be in the same club just a different group.

As I was moving my craft room back upstairs I came across a stamp set, punch and embossing folder that I have never used or at least don't remember using! The stamp set is called Mosaic Madness and there is a punch available to go with it. The embossing folder is the Modern Mosaic. What a wonderful set to play with! I also used a stamp from the stamp set called Timeless Textures and the sentiment is from a set called Party pants.

It was great to take a break from moving stuff and make this card. Love how it turned out.

Have a great week!

Feb stamp club Sketch Challenge

We will be having our club night this week and Charlene has sent out an interesting sketch.
This month's sketch comes from her favorite place Freshly Made Sketches #272
and here is my take on it

My plan is to keep using what I have and I have had these papers for a long time. You will probably see me use them a few more times. 

Have a great week !

Birthday cards July-Dec 2016

Here we go...

I used the Sizzix circle flip it die #2
Looks like spring Stampin Up stamp set with the coordinating Spring bouquet flower punch.
I thought these turned out really cute :)

This is a Z fold card and I love them! I used the Stampin Up Botanical Blooms die to create the flowers and the stamp set used to create the background is also from Stampin UP called touches of texture.

Love how this card turned out. I used the stamp set called Balloon Celebration from Stampin Up and then hand cut the balloons. 

Tried a vertical version of the Z fold. Worked great! 

Here is a list of the products used:
Stampin Up Softly falling embossing folder
Stampin Up Balloon Celebration stamp set for the little stars and balloons 
Stampin UP Party Pants set for the WOO HOO!
CTMH stamp set For Every Occasion stamped out the Happy Birthday 
The Sentiment comes from Stampendous Birthday Wish. I have used this stamp many times!

Still loving this Z-fold
As you can see I used the same stamp sets as in the previous month cards.

I just had to use my new cable knit embossing folder. Thought it would bring some warmth to a winter birthday card :)

Whew! that was fun :)
Have a great weekend!

Birthday Club cards for 2016 January -June

Here are the ones for

This embossing folder has been used so many times and I still love it! It works great for the backgrounds and on the flaps of the envelope  :)

I made four this month. An extra one to mail off to a friend who just happened to join the same club!

Another embossing folder that has been used several times. I used about 3/4 of the top part of the folder.  This folder was included with a magazine that I had purchased. Love it!
Love this happy birthday stamp and the bows are so cute!
I only had to make two cards this month.
"Falling snow" is what this embossing folder is called. Works great with birthday cards!
I sure have made good use of my embossing folders these past few months lol
Made an extra one for me to keep :)
I have wanted to try my hand at making a box card but wasn't sure about mailing them. These went into the envelope quite nice. No extra postage!

Hope you enjoyed what you see. I will be posting the next set very soon.
Have a great weekend!
