October Card Club Swap

This months theme for my card club was to create a card in black and white only.  The creative ladies came up with some really fabulous cards as always.

We had everyone attend the club this month so it was nice to see everyone.  

This is Tracy's Card.  It is an anniversary card, and I needed one for my cousin so this one was already given away.  Thanks Tracy! 

This is Michelle's Beautiful Card! 

This is Liz's Card. When you open it the window in the middle is revealed! So awesome!

This is Rachelle's Card she hand cut out the flowers!!  

Cindy Created this adorable tuxedo card!

Angela created this adorable card! 

This is my card. :-)

We also made cookies this month using the cookie press by Stampin Up and then made a box to put them in with the Box Punch board.  I also won the little door prize this month which was this cute little Halloween fry box filled with Candies. 

Here are just a few products I used in my card.

Christmas Tree Card

This is my card that I made for my first demonstrator swap.  We had to make 15 cards this time and it was a challenge to get them all done in time.

The challenge this month was to use one of the Swing Card Thinlits that Stampin Up has.

I just got my Big Shot so this was a great project to get started with.

I used the Dazzling Detail glitter glue for the first time and liked the results!  

I used so many fun products.  This is a great card for the holidays.  Below are all the items I used. Just click on the link below the item and it will take you right to my website.

New Challenge

I wanted to enter a challenge I stumbled upon that you use only Stampin Up products for, and since I'm addicted to Stampin Up I thought I'd enter.  The challenge blog is SU Only Challenges and they have such wonderful ideas to show off. Here is my card for the challenge.  The challenge was to make a card or project using something you'd find in the woods.

I learned the technique of masking recently and I also used the white crayon technique for the trees  I should have went a little darker with the crayon but I thought it was cute for my first attempt.
Products used were:
Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, and Garden Green ink
Stamp Sets are:
Festival of Trees,  Papillon Potpourri, and Petite Pairs
Paper colors: Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight
I used a sponge to get the background effects and a white crayon on the trees.  I used the circle punch and punch a hole in a sticky note and then inked the whole on my card.  Then using the cicle piece I punched out I stuck that over my inked sun and sponged the background.

Bubbling Birthday Card

This week is my week to Design for the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge.
Here is this weeks sketch # 76
I love the idea in this sketch of the words behind an image.  I wish I had a little more time for this one because I had two ideas in mind.  This one is a birthday card, but I also wanted to do a Halloween card with this same concept and if I get some time I'll post that one too.

Here is what I came up with

I liked the way my paper matched the bubbles in the drink stamp.  I also cut about an inch off the front of the card so when you opened it you could see the patterned paper on the back of the card front.
This is a stamp set I've used before called Happy Hour from Stampin Up and the paper is from the Regals Desginer Paper Series by Stampin Up. It is a deep pretty purple that the picture does do justice. I added some bling baubles I had to give it an even more bubbly effect.  I kept my card simple this week.
