March 2012 Card Makers
I don't have a club anymore, but some of the ladies still want to come over once a month or so to make a couple of cards. They don't want to be required to order a certain amount or at all, but they are willing to pay for the cards. We really enjoy those creative times together. This coming Thursday is the first Thursday in March, so we will be getting together again. I thought we'd make Easter cards.
The two cards we will make will be colored in two different ways. Card #1 is made with the "Bordering on Romance" set and colored with Markers and Blender Pen. I'm starting to really like the Calypso Coral which I didn't like at first. The base card, scalloped mat and ribbon are all Calypso Coral. The DSP is Everyday Enchantment which is an SAB item (Free with $50 or more order). The sentiment came from the "Heaven Blessed" set. I also used a layer of Lucky Limeade and Whisper White for the main image panel. The brad is from the Ribbon/Brad Bundle which is also an SAB item. Although my sample has an Easter sentiment, any sentiment would work on this one.
Card #2 is made using the "Heaven Blessed" set and water coloring with Water Color Wonder Crayons and an Aqua Painter. The same sentiment was used on both cards. Also, the same DSP was used on both cards. This card has the boy on it, so I thought it would be best without ribbon or frills. It's a flat card which is also easier to mail. All products used for both cards are from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!
