All Occasion Card Class

I thought I had shared the cards from my All Occasion class that I had a few weeks ago.  But I had someone ask about them today, so maybe I did not.  Without further ado, here are a few .... (I'm a poet and didn't know it!! - ha!)

One of my favorite cards!  Butterflies from Papillion Potpourri.  Glittery - hard to tell in the picture.

For the Birds

Creative Elements - gonna miss this stamp set!

Flower Garden embossing folder - another one I'm sad to see go away.

Happy f Watercolor from Occasions catalog.  This set did not make it into the new catalog but there is another one that is just as good so I'm ok.

August Stamp Club

I have been so busy this week, I have not had any time to be creative.  I hate it when that happens.  Although, to see my stamp room, you wouldn't believe me.  It is a mess - just about every surface is covered up with something not to mention the floor!  Tomorrow is the first day this week that I don't have anything scheduled.  I hope to be able to play a little bit and clean but I think Sonny has plans for us to go out on the boat.  Maybe a little of both will happen.  Monday I played bridge (and won $3!! - whoo hoo!)  Tuesday I drove to Charlotte for a Red Cross meeting.  While I was there, I drove over to Park Rd. Shopping Center, which was my old stomping ground when I was a teenager.  It's so funny to see that some of the same stores are still there!!  I had lunch at a cafe there that my mom loves.  When I told her about it that evening, she told me she hoped I had indigestion!!  I tried to do a surprise visit to my aunt who I haven't seen in years but she wasn't home.  Wednesday, I had a doctor's appointment as well as my mom.  I had scheduled them both on the same day so I wouldn't have to go twice so that helped.  He was really pleased and surprised at how well my mom was doing.  She has stopped taking the pain meds and just takes Alieve during the day.  It is so great to see her getting  back to doing her regular stuff again.  Keep your fingers crossed that this continues.

Today I had my Thursday Stamp Club.  We made several items.

For the Birds
 On this card, each person chose their stamped image from the stamp set, For the Birds.  A few chose to make it a Christmas card with plaid Christmas DSP.  The image was colored with markers.  I colored the Baker's Twine with my marker to make it pink.

Stippled Blossom
 This was the favorite!  I think almost everyone bought the ink and the stamp set!  It makes a gorgeous card and I know I will be using this set again and again.  We stamped the image with Primrose Petals - the outline image is stamped full strength and the inside image was stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the Vanilla cardstock.  We did the same thing with the leaves.  The shape is from the Apothecary Framelits.  We used the paper piercer and the new Piercing Templates to prick around the image.  The final touch was to lightly sponge Chocolate Chip ink around the edges.

Perfectly Preserved
This is one of my favorites.  I just love this little mason jar!  I also showed them how they could just use the Framelit to cut the jar into the card itself and put the images (apples, pears, etc) on the inside of the card just peeking through.

We also made a 3x3 card box with cards and envelopes inside using Bootiful Occasions.  I'll share those later.  I need to take a picture.
