Card Clubs - January 1, 8, & 9, 2013

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a blessed year ahead.  Below are the cards that we will be making in the January card club:

This card was inspired by Janet Yates, and her blog can be seen at  It uses the Serene Silhouettes and Petite Paris stamp sets.  The base card uses Daffodil Delight card stock.  I used the Top Note die to cut out a piece of Black and So Saffron card stock.  Using a brayer and sponge, I coated the So Saffron piece with Daffodil Delight, Pumpking Pie, and Tangerine Tango ink, and then stamped the image in Basic Black and sponged a little black beneath that.  The bufferflies were made with the Butterfly embosslit folder in Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card stock. The bottom sentiment was stamped with Basic Black on Daffodil Delight and punched with the oval scallop punch and backed with a piece of Basic Black punched with an oval punch.
This card was made using the Blooming with Kindness and Petite Pairs stamp sets.  I saw many very similar cards using this same technique so I can't really say that this card was inspired by any one person.   The base card and all framing pieces were made using Real Red Card Stock, and the other card stock is Very Vanilla.  I placed the three pieces of Very Vanilla card stock on top of each other, and then sporadically stamped the image using Real Red ink.  After stamping, I adhered the Real Red card stock to each piece and just glued them to each other.  The bottom sentiment was made in a similar fashion and punched with the oval scallop and small oval punch.
Hopefully everyone has received the new spring catalog.  This card was made using a new set out of that catalog, the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and coordinating frametlit set.  The base card is Melon Mambo topped with a piece of Pretty in Pink that was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The Melon Mambo paper behind the heart images was cut out using the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits.  The hearts were stamped using Melon Mambo ink on Whisper White paper and cut out with the framelits.  The bottom sentiment was made using the Layered Labels stamp set and coordinating framelits.
These cards will conclude our current card clubs, and I am currently signing up people to join one of two cards clubs that will be held at my house.  If you are interested in joining, please let me know.  Thank you.
