Club #2 Kick-off

Club #2 began today - what fun! It was good to be with old friends and make some new ones.

This is the first card we made. I did the Smooch Spritz before-hand because I am pretty messy when doing that.
Stamp Sets: Thoughts and Prayers, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Cajun Craze
Punches: Small Oval, Scalloped Oval
Embellishment: More Mustard brads
Ink: Cajun Craze, Log Cabin Smooch Spritz

This is another card we made. It featured the Big Shot and embossing folder Vintage Wallpaper and the Presto Paper.
Card Stock: Bravo Burgundy, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand and Presto Paper
Ink: Sahara Sand
Ribbon: Whisper White Organza

My favorite of the three we made today is this one.
Stamp Set: Hello Again
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Concord Crush, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Lap of Luxury DSP
Ribbon: 3/8 inch organza Pretty in Pink
Ink: Basic Gray marker and ink pad, Concord Crush marker

And our project:
Stamp Sets: Batty for You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant
Punches: Wide Oval, Scallop Oval, 1 3/8 inch Circle, Scallop Circle
Embellishment: Old Olive 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon, Glimmer Brads

And here is the treat inside :-)

It was a great time and hope everyone learned something to take home and use for their own cardmaking and scrapbooking.

I love cards with ribbons. Especially those gauzy ribbons. Does CM still carry the 1/4 and 1/2" ones in many colors?

Mary Cavalier said...

Rhonda - It is SU not CM :-) They only carry the white organza like I used on the presto paper card above. But it is very easy to dye it with your inks so it can match anything. If you're interested I can send you come links - or maybe I will have to do a tutorial.
