April 3 & 10 Card Clubs

These are the cards that we will be making at my upcoming cards clubs on April 3 and 10:  (Unfortunately it looks like my pictures ended up with a shadow on them.)

This card was inspired by Julie Arvin on Stampin' Connection, and it uses my new favorite stamp set -- the Mixed Bunch set out of the mini catalog.  The base card is tempting turquoise which I topped with a piece of  whisper white embossed with the dots.  I stamped one of the flower stamps on whisper white paper using tempting turquoise, daffodil delight, and melon mambo and then punched them out with the coordinating blossom punch.  The centers were stamped with a stamp from the same set and cut out with the one inch circle punch and applied with a brad in the center and dimensionals underneath.  I also punched out a solid blossom using the same color card stock behind each flower.  The pot was just a piece cut from early espresso card stock and stamped with one of  the Sincere Salutation stamps. 

This card was inspired by Miss Vicky on Splitcoaststampers and uses the Flight of the Butterfly, Inspired by Nature, and Teeny Tiny Messages stamp sets.  This is a spinner card which is a lot of fun to make and give away.  The base card is melon mambo. The grass was stamped with old olive and the little flowers were stamped in melon mambo on whisper white.  The butterfly was stamped with old olive on melon mambo and cut out with the butterfly punch.  The butterfly really spins, and I'm really looking forward to showing my card club how easy this card is to make.


Hard to believe that Mother's Day is right around the corner.  These cards were made with the Messages for Mom stamp set and the Bigz Sizzix Flower Daisies #2 die.  The base card uses pretty in pink card stock.  Rich razzleberry card stock is used behind the flower and behind the Mom stamp, and I used the Paper Doily Large Sizzlit Die out of the mini catalog on the one card.  The doily is beautiful when it's cut out; however, after making 22 card packets up, I probably won't use it again for a while.  The cut you get with the sizzlits never seem quite as good as the cut you get with the bigger dies.


  1. Great cards. Your class is going to be wonderful.

  2. These are ALL wonderful cards. I love what you did with the Daisy die and coloring just the tips to give it a different look. Thanks for blessing my day and inspiring my art. :)

  3. I love all of the cards but really like the one with Mixed Bunch. I agree with you too, it is also one of my favorite new stamp sets. Love when a set coordinates so nicely with a punch. Thanks for some great ideas for Mother's Day.

  4. Hi Brenda! I absolutely LOVE the colors you chose for your flower pot card! The brights are my favorite color family, so this really caught my eye:) Thanks for mentioning me:) I love the other cards as well. I need Mother's Day ideas. Thanks for sharing!
