July's Card Club

Here the card that I demonstrated at the club this month.  The images were stamped with versamark and then highlighted with a white gel pen.  The leaves were created using the five petal flower punch.

Inside, the card is a pop up card.  Really whimsical.
This month I did an "early bird"project this time for those who were on time.  Those who were on-time were very early!!!  We folded these small gift bags.  They are 3 1/2 inches tall, but I think were a little to hard for a 2nd project!
The theme for the month was "wedding."  This card is mine. My card has water coloring on it and dry embossing on the bottom. 

I love so many things about Salena's Card.  Love the background, the colors, the ribbon, the punch!  NICE!
Carol's.  She embossed the background, and it is sparkly!  Elegant!
How cute is this card?  Jocelyn used this ever-popular truck stamp set.  It is so versatile!  Embossing . . . . punching . . . . and love the "cans" that are trailing behind the truck!
Here is Kiersten's Card.  I love that she dry embossed this card and then placed a stamp in the middle of it . . . . I believe she did it the other way around though!  Stamped and then dry embossed!  Cute punches, ribbon and placement!  Very striking.
Look at this!!!  Terri's Card.  Punched flowers make a heart and then are embellished with little pearls.  So NICE! 
Roz's card. This card is so simply elegant! The dry embossing and ribbon and stamp work so well together.

And a make-up card . . . . . . not signed, don't know whose it it.  This is white craft ink stamped on paper.  Looks really great in person but was hard to photograph!

June Card Club

Oh My! This has taken me a long while to get this posted! Better late than never!

Here is the card I demonstrated. I thought it would be fun to use wire with beads for the stems of the flowers. The small flowers around the side are punched out flowers with the middles being glue dots dipped in glitter.  The background is on water color paper and tinted with various colors of Stampin up's water color crayons.
The theme for swap was "beach."  This is my card.  The sun has a glitter middle.  I used the color pastels chalks, water color crayons and stampin write markers to watercolor the images.
Since this club has been a while ago, I'm guessing whose cards these are.  I think this one is Salenas.  Simple and Beautiful!
Jocelyn went over-the-top with this card.  It is a shaker card and has many elements in it.  The fish pop up, and seem to be swimming in the grass and there are beads that you can shake!! 
Kiersten did this card.  Love it!
Terri's card.  This is a very simple card and I love it.  I love how she layered the papers at the bottom, the stamp sentiment and how it pulls together!
LeeAnn's Card.  She brayered the background, embossed the sand and sentiment.  Can you see it?  Abstract Loveliness.
Jane's Card.  This has so many layers!  I love how she use the negative of the sand dollar as a starfish. 
More Sand dollars.  Carol is our "newbie" in the club and she is putting out some great cards!
These next two are make-up cards from last month's  "stars" theme.  LeeAnn:
Terri's Card - - I already know who I'm sending this one to!

Great Job Ladies!
