Making Cards again

I've had some gals in our Mobile Home (55+ community) park ask for some card making classes.  We did some Christmas cards in November and now we'll do some Valentine Cards next week.  These are a couple of the cards I've come up with.
This card consist of paper from a Recollections paper Pack, the sentiment is from Club Scrap and the Heart Stamp is from Firecracker Designs (since closed, but I have some great stamps from that company).

This was made with a Kraft paper for the Card Base, Black paper, Chalk markers and a technique from the Club Scrap Blog .  Stamped image from an older Club Scrap kit.  Stamped with Zing white embossing powder and the heart filled in with Red Chalk.

Will be making one more Valentine Card in the class, once I come up with how I want to make it.

I also had to get some Get Well cards made for our Coffee gathering this morning, for everyone to sign and send to those needing some get well cheering up.

This card was made using the pattern idea for an "Overalls Card" from Technique Junkies "Shape It" CD.  I used a Kraft prefolded card base and typed out the sentiment and cut up.  All papers and brads from my stash.
Masculine Get well using the Tim Holtz die, greeting and green papers from Club Scrap, Striped paper from stash.
Last two cards for some gals needing a little bit of cheer.  Papers are all from stash, stamps used on the top card from Club Scrap and used the "Triple Stamping" Technique from Splitcoast Stampers.  I just used some different measurement to get the square.  Bottom card uses papers from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad, and I typed up the message and used a Spellbinders die for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking.  I'll update again soon.

Merry Christmas

I have been doing a few Christmas cards lately and thought I'd share a few with you.

This first one uses a stamp from Club Scrap that I embossed with gold embossing powder.  Added ornaments from a 6x6 paper pad from "My Mind's Eye", and layered on misc papers from my Club Scrap stash.  The "Peace on Earth" greeting is from Club Scrap.

 This 2nd card is a Herringbone Technique using strips from the "My Mind's Eye" pad and then topped it with a die cut tree - adding some stickles, etc.

This 3rd card is fun to make and it the "Circle Stips" technique from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter.  I used papers from the "My Minds Eye" 6x6 paper pad, greeting from Club Scrap and fiber from stash.

Thanks for looking and I wish each of you a very Merry Christmas.

Some more Sympathy Cards.

I also had to make a couple more Sympathy cards that will be passed around at Coffee tomorrow for friends to sign.

This first one shows the cover and the inside - I used papers from Club Scrap Great Outdoor and images from a special Sympathy set, and stamps from Just Dandy - all from Club Scrap

 This card used papers from Versailles kit and the tag was a cut out greeting from the same kit.  This is also from Club Scrap

This 3rd card features a leaf stamp from Natural Resources, backgrond  stamp and greeting  from another kit

This last card features a Tree Stamp from Great Outdoors, greetings and paper from Club Scrap.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my cards.  They were fun to make - even though they are for sad occasions.

Sympathy Cards

I provide the Get Well and Sympathy cards when needed at our 55+ Mobile Home/RV Resort out here in Arizona.  My stash was getting done and I used a sketch provided by Tricia Morris of Club Scrap and took her up on her challenge to make some cards.

You can find the sketch and challenge

I used papers from the Full Circle kit from Club Scrap and the new um's from "Lock & Key" kit from Club Scrap.

I'm just hoping I don't have to use all of these soon.

Another Card

I got busy and found another background I made - so pulled out some of this fun copper paper from Club Scrap's Adobe kit.  The background stamp is from Full Circle and the greeting stamp is also from Full Circle.

Thanks for stopping by....until the next time
Happy Crafting

Wishing everyone a creative week.
