September 4, 11, & 12, 2012 - Card Clubs

These are the cards that we will make for the card clubs on September 4, 11, & 12:

This card was inspired by the card on p. 29 in the new Stampin' Up! holiday catalog and uses the Perfecty Preserved stamp set and coordinating framelit dies.  I used cajun craze for the main card, and the first layer was lucky limeaid card stock which was cut with the window frames framelits, and then pierced with the coordinating piercing pack.  All of the stamping was done on whisper white card stock.  The canning jar and pear stem were done in early espresso, the canning jar top, flower, and wording were all done in cajun craze, and the pear was stamped in lucky limeaid.  The sentiment and sentiment background were both cut out using the itty bitty banner framelits.   I used a small piece of hemp for the bow in the upper left corner.
This card uses the new Googly Ghouls stamp set.  The base card is pumpkin pie card stock which has been topped with a piece of whisper white that was embosseed with the spider web folder and chalked with gray chalk.  All stamping was done on whisper white paper.  The sentiment is from the Wacky Wishes hostess stamp set and was stamped using pumpkin pie ink.  The witch and spider were stamped using basic black ink, and I colored the witch's face in with certainly celery marker.

This card was made using the Love & Sympathy stamp set.  The base card is bashful blue.  The first layer is choclate chip card stock which has been embossed with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder.  All stamping was done on whishper white card stock with chocolate chip ink.  I used a sponge dipped in chocolate chip ink to accent the edges of the whisper white card stock before mounting them on the bashful blue background pieces.  I used the beautiful wings embosslit to cut out both the bashful blue and chocolate chip colored butterflies.  I used the dotted ribbon border scallop punch to create the piece at the bottom of the card.  The 2-3/8" scallop circle punch was used on bashful blue card stock to create the border for the sentiment which was punched using the 1-3/4" circle punch.
I'm still experiencing some difficulty in getting really good pictures of the cards and believe that the cards look much better in person than they do on the computer screen.  If anyone not in the card club would like to make these cards, I still have room for a few more people at my house on Wednesday, September 12.
