December Club

December Club met today and even though we were small in number we made some great cards and had a lot of fun.

This card is CASEd from a swap I got and I have done it with another club only in Certainly Celery. There wasn't any Melon Mambo ribbon so I had to dye my own - what fun!
Card Stock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, Vellum Card Stock
Stamp Set: Because I Care
Ink: Basic Black, Pearlized Smooch Accent, Melon Mambo
Tools: Scallop Border punch, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval punch
Ribbon: Organza ribbon dyed using the Melon Mambo ink pad
This is my favorite. It is a pop-up card and the colors just look so good together.
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Stamp Set: Delightful Decorations
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green
Tools: Scallop Corner punch, Ornament Punch
Ribbon: 5/8 inch Satin Very Vanilla, 1/2 inch Seam Binding Cherry Cobbler

Stamp Set: Christmas Message
Tools: Decorative Label Punch, Ticket Corner Punch

This one is similar to the Real Red ornaments from the November group. I currently have two clubs running and it does simplify things when I use the same method but I get tired of the same card so usually chnage up the colors, shapes etc.
Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Vellum Paper
Ink: Whisper White Craft, Not Quite Navy
Stamp Set: Delightful Decorations, After Thought
Tools: Decorative Label punch, Big Shot and Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Ribbon: 3/8 inch taffeta Whisper White

This is the little luminary we made. It uses a battery operated tealight. The hostess used the snowflake punch for hers and some of the guests used the ornament punch. They were all cute!
Card Stock: Poppy Parade, Vellum paper
Tools: Desired Punch (Snowflake, Large Heart, Heart to Heart, Curly Label, Scallop Circle, Scallop Square) - whatever you like.

I'm already looking forward to our January club workshops. Both clubs will meet the end of January and we are all looking forward to Sale-a-bration!
