The "pot" for the flower is punched using a Christmas ornament punch.  Cutting the bottom off makes a cute little pot I think . . . . . .

This is another card for the month we had "folds" as a theme for swap.  I found the pattern for and folded these little oragami dresses.  14 cards . . . 28 dresses, in different colors . . . .

I love these whimsical little flowers.  I've been seeing cards with white gel pens and wanted to try it.  This is the result.

There is something about trees that I really like . . . .

I was goofing around with a Christmas theme for this one.  This reminds me of a sculpture from where I used to live on the "Great Salt Lake"!!

A very clean and simple card.

Another, "just because" card . . . . Got some new stamps and wanted to try them out.  I embossed the black on this one so the colors wouldn't run together.

Another "black magic" card . . . . .LOVE IT!

Friday, November 4, 2011

I've been looking at the "black magic" technic for a while, and when I saw this stamp I thought it'd be fun to try it.  You stamp a white image onto a black piece of paper and then use watercolor pencils to color and shade.  It looks better in person. . . . . . .

The swap theme for this card was "folds."  I folded this "triangle" fold card . . . . turned out pretty fun.

I made this one using some hostess stamps that I got and an old background stamp (the leaves).  I used a pear color . . . . . and a layout challenge from split coast stampers.

This was a "just for fun" card. . . . I tried some paper piercing and used Crystal Effects in the middle of the flowers.

I get sooooooo behind on posting card clubs cards that I've decided to catch up by just posting my cards . . . . because that is what I have time for!

The theme we chose for this month was "marine life." I have very few stamps that fit into that category and so I fashioned this crab and just printed out a sentiment. I liked how it turned out!

Card by Kiersten.  She brayed on the color for the background and then dry embossed the paper.  The tag has silver embossing.  A pretty card.

Card by Terri.  This stamp set brings back memories.  It is the stamp set that was used in my very first stampin up workshop that I attended.  I remember loving how my card turned out.  This stamp set is a classic!

Card by Kiersten.  I love this technic.  So classy looking.  This has an oriental flare and I love the colors used.

Card by Dela.  This is a three step stamp.  At least that is what Dela says . . . . and I believe her  :)

Card by Jocelyn.  This one breathes Cricut.  The background has been run through a crimper a couple of times for its texture.  The leaves of the flower are sparkly . . . . elegant card!

Card by Salena.  This was for our two step challenge.  The flower is embossed and this card has a glitzy flare.

Card by Roz.  This card made me want this stamp set.   Very nicely done.

Card by Salena.  She pieced background papers together and then embossed them.  She'd never used the stamp "thanks" and that was the challenge.  Whimsical!

Card by Jocelyn.  I'm loving this card on so many levels. . . . the frogs . . . . the orange . . . . the papers . . . . the way she's layered her circles.  FUN!

Dela's card.  I love this wheel.  I also love these colors.  Orange is such a happy color and so trendy right now.

Card by LeeAnn.  Paper piecing, paper tearing. . . . . fun card.

Card by LeeAnn.  She somehow stamped these flowers first on the pink cardstock and then again on vellum.  I like this effect.  Very nice.
