These are the other cards we made this month at Stamp Club.
This first one was super simple! (I actually CASEd the idea from Stamp with Brian who CASEd it from someone else!) I used a piece of DSP from the Serene Serenity pack. This paper is filled with gorgeous inspirational pieces on one side and the other side has abstract patterns that are great for backgrounds. I paired the DSP with Delightful Dijon and it matched perfectly. The card itself is Tip Top Taupe - a color I have not used very much. The sentiment uses Thoughtful Banners (a must have!) punched out with the Duet Banner Punch (both borrowed from my sister but on my "must have" list.)
This next card served double duty this month. It was my swap card for Allison's monthly meeting as well as a card for my club ladies to make. It showcases all the new In Colors. I made a template with the Starburst Thinlit and sponged the color onto the white card. The flowers are from Crazy About You and Flower Patch and punched out with the corresponding punch (Flower Medallion) and die (Flower Fair thinlits.) The sentiment is Hello You Thinlits. And for the finishing touch, I added a bit of silver metallic thread under the flower.
Hope your weekend was a good one. We drove over to Reed Gold Mine on Saturday. I didn't strike it rich though! In fact, I didn't even pan for gold! Reed Gold Mine was the first place gold was discovered in the U.S. They were putting on an American Revolution reenactment that I though Sonny would enjoy. It was ok but something to do on a Saturday! Sunday we spent most of the day on the lake "chilling." Ashley is house hunting in Hawaii. She has discovered that her money will not go too far there in the housing market. She spent most of Friday with a realtor looking at homes and was pretty disillusioned that evening. She only saw one condo that she would even consider. They are all pretty old, small and very expensive - like 2 bedrooms for $600,000+. Sunday she went out on her own visiting a few open houses and found one condo that she really liked - again pretty small for the money, but that's the price she'll have to pay for living in Hawaii I think. At least it made her feel better - that there are a few nice places for sale there. The problem is the nice ones go almost as soon as they hit the market so you are going to have to be in the right place at the right time. The one she found yesterday will have 2 weekends for open house before they will even start to take offers. I so wish I could be there to house hunt with her. I love to do that plus I have been with her every place she moved to look for houses.
