This Blackberry Bliss beauty uses the flower from Garden in Bloom - a new two-step stamp. I love the new Brick Wall embossing folder. It is a bigger folder than the usual embossing folders. I used the white gel pen to color in the "mortar" on the bricks.
This card was actually a CASE from my friend, Allison. She did a card very similar to this one in our New Catalog Swap last month. I wanted a chance to use the Layered Alphabet stamp set and this was perfect for it. I gave the gals a choice of color - Cucumber Crush or Watermelon Wonder. They both look great paired with Basic Black.
I love this little koala but haven't used it much. I think I was trying to color him in and it just didn't work. This little guy, I stamped with Early Espresso and didn't color anything except for the flower and added a few tiny dots around the flower and the sentiment. I used the Score Board to score vertical lines on both sides of the bear and backed it with Marina Mist that I added lines to with the gel pen. Since this was a square card (4 1/2"), we also used the Envelope Punch Board to make an envelope.
We also made the Slider Card I shared HERE.
I really enjoyed having a new member join us and a guest who I met for lunch last week. Barbara is visiting her son in Mooresville and lives in Florida. She is also a SU demonstrator. I was glad she was able to come to club and have a creative day with us. My new member is Gayle who just moved here from Florida too. It's funny - she found me through either my blog or contacting SU directly. As it turns out, she moved in to the same neighborhood as me. And to make it even more coincidental, her back yard backs up to my front yard so she was able to just walk over yesterday.
Some good deals this week - I have my eye on the Sweetheart Punch and you can always find a use for White Ribbon - use it white or dye it to match. Here are the Weekly Deals for this week:
