January Stamp Club Cards

Brrrr - it's sure turned cold here today!  I was hoping to wake up to a yard full of snow, but no such luck.  There is a dusting on our back deck and schools were delayed 3 hours this morning but that's about it.  We went over to Horsefeathers last night to grab a burger and beer and coming home, a "wintry mix" was really coming down.  It has been raining non stop since Monday and our yard looks like a swamp!  But today the sun is out finally and the temperatures are supposed to reach the mid 40s!!  Good day for making cards and drinking hot chocolate by the fire!

I had Stamp Club this week - and am actually having it again next Wednesday since 4 of the girls could not make it for one reason or another.  These are a few of the cards we made this week along with the cards from THIS POST.  They picked one of the Valentines to make and chose either the pink or turquoise birthday card.

 This card used the new Hearts A Flutter bundle - stamp and framelits.  Also the ribbon is the new Two-Tone Ribbon.  I like the ribbon although it is not what I had pictured in my mind.  I thought it was going to be 2 different colors but what it is is a blend of the two colors - Rose Red and Pink Pirouette.  I had to go back to the catalog and read the description to figure it out.  It is nice and silky and makes a very pretty bow.  The "I Love You" is from the Bitty Banners stamp and framelit.  The large heart was cut using the Hearts Framelits.

This is just a fun card!  I recently bought this Patterned Party birthday set during one of SU's sales.  It is such a great birthday set!  It also has gifts and cake in the set but I just couldn't fit any more stamps on the card.  On this card, I stamped the balloons separately, cut them out, and popped each one up.  If you notice on the blue card below, I stamped all the balloons separately on the card using markers to color them - much easier!!

This card uses Papillion Potpourri (butterflies) and the Elegant Butterfly Punch - makes it super easy to cut out those butterflies!!  I made a mask using the Labels Framelits and stamped the French background stamp on the Vanilla card stock.  Next I stamped the "thanks" from the Vintage Verses Sale-a-bration set in Rich Razzleberry.  After the stamping, I ran the piece through the Big Shot using the Houndstooth embossing folder.  The butterfly was stamped onto Pretty in Pink and punched out.  Super easy card!!

Loving the Honeycomb!

I got to play with my new stuff and let me tell you, I'm loving the Honeycomb embossing folder!  I can see myself using it a lot!!
I wish now I'd gotten more stuff with my mini catalog preorder.  At first glance, I wasn't totally in love with many of the products in the catalog.  But as usual, as I've seen what others have done with the products, I'm wanting them!!  But for now, I'll just make do with what I have!

This card uses the Polka Dot Parade DSP  (pg. 164, #126902) in Rich Razzleberry along with Pink Pirouette card stock that is embossed with the Honeycomb folder.  The banner is made using the Hearts A Flutter Framelits Dies.  I also used a (SNEAK PEEK) item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog - can you spot it?  It is the Petite Curly Label Punch.  It works great with the stamps from Tiny Tags.  Other punches used are the Itty Bitty Punches (flower) and the tiny heart in the center flag from the Owl Punch.

And another card using the Honeycomb folder. It would be nice to have a punch that matched the Honeycomb though. But until we do here is what I did for my card - embossed the DSP with the Honeycomb folder and just cut the individual hexagons out  (I used Twitterpated DSP - pg 165).  Then I just glued them to a few of the embossed hexagons.  The stamp in the middle is another SNEAK PEEK from Sale-a-Bration called Vintage Verses.  It fits nicely in the Labels Framelit Die.  I really like the simplicity of this card.
