Stamp Club April Cards

I had Stamp Club last week and we made these four cards.

Language Of Friendship
I think this was my favorite one!  I got the stamp set last year during Sale-a-Bration and don't think I have used it before this time.  I bet this is going to be one of those sets that will be retired .... we'll see this week!!  I love the Designer Brads from the Mini Catalog - added just the right touch, don't you think?

This card uses a retired stamp set but it would be easy to recreate using the Aviary stamp in the current catalog.  The colors I used were Rich Razzleberry, Pear Pizazz and Island Indigo.

Secret Garden
This was a request by a couple of my stamp club gals.  I used Lucky Limeade with Gumball Green leaves.  The flowers are Calypson Coral which I embossed in white and cut out with the framelits.

These two cards were made using the elements from the Pop-Up Posies Kit.  Some of the gals made the flowers using the cupcake liners for flowers and some used the pre-cut flowers.  The middle was cut out with the Labels framelit.

Pop Up Posies

How do you like my new blog heading?  I saw a similar blog heading on another site where you have to purchase the download for your blog and decided I could re-create it with MDS.  It took me a couple days to get the recoloring and layering done but it was fun to do.

A reminder - if you would like to get the very first issue of Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin - the creative project that will be delivered directly to your door - you need to sign up by Sunday.  Check it out HERE.

I have been working on my projects for the Quarterly meeting in a couple of weeks.  I am participating in a card swap, 3D swap, shoebox swap as well as doing a presentation on MDS.

Today I played around with the Pop Up Posies kit offered in the Spring Mini catalog.  There is so much you can do with it and you get a lot of elements.

Here is the first card I made using the Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze flowers.  I sprayed them with water to "fluff" them up a bit.

For the second card, I used the same layout but used the cupcake liner elements to make my flower.  I used my dauber to color the ends of the flower with Poppy Parade.

The only thing I would do different on the two cards is to use my paper pricker and templates to prick holes around the die cutout.  That would add a little "pizzaz" to them I think.
