Cards from Stamp Club

I have a few more cards to share with you that we did on Tuesday's Stamp Club.

This card is so simple to make but is so elegant.  I used the Magnolia Embossing Folder to emboss the piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I find that if you spritz your cardstock before embossing, you will get a much better impression.  The card above was spritzed and the card below was not.

We fussy cut out one of the flowers from the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper and adhered it to the card with a dimensional.  The sentiment is from Well Said (in the annual catalog.)  The ribbons that I used on both cards has been retired but use what you have!

This was another easy-peasy card to make.  The thick white cardstock makes the base of the card.  The next layer is Lovely Lipstick and next is Rococo Rose.  I embossed the Rococo Rose piece with the Country Floral embossing folder (a definite favorite!)  Next I sponged white craft ink over the floral image and adhered it to the Lovely Lipstick piece.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases, another great stamp set to have for it's sentiments.

Flourishing Phrases

This is another Stamp Club card - one you hope you do not need but you know you will.  I love the combination of Daffodil and Basic Black.  I used the Flourishing Phrases thinlits and stamp set to make this card.  If you haven't looked at this bundle in the Annual Catalog, you need to check it out on page 49.  The stamp set is a really good one when you are looking for sentiments.  Not only does it have some really good sympathy ones, but also many others from "Just a Note" to "I love you."   And the thinlits are so pretty - you get leaves, flowers and borders.

I found that the Die Brush (page 190) really came in handy with getting all the little bits out of the dies.  I have not been a fan of the Die Brush and did not encourage my customers to purchase it but I am changing my tune now!  You can do a Google search and see some tutorials for using the Die Brush.  But basically, you just run your card stock with the die through your Big Shot and when you take it out, put it on a foam mat without removing the piece from the die.  Next  just run the Die Brush back and forth over the top of the die and most of the bits will come out and the die piece will come out of the die easier.  Try it - you'll like it!!
