I hope you didn’t miss club this month! The cards were a lot of fun. I demonstrated a water color technique that we hadn’t done before, and then we made a card using it with a retired stamp from last years retirement list. After all, this month is all about retiring stamps, so what better time to use one of my favorite oldies? Here are 2 of this months projects.
The first is a masculine card that could be used for a birthday or even Father’s Day
This card features all current supplies,
The stamp set is called The Open Sea, (w128454, c123032)
Card stock & Inks used were Daffodill Delight, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Whisper White
Brights Designer Series Paper Pack, and from the Spring catalog, Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack (129312), love this 4.5″x6.5″ pad, I wish it had made into the new catalog, it will not be available after May 31st. :o(
Here is the water color technique card:
We used some of the new In Colors on this card:
Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe card stock
Water color paper
Daffodil Delight, Costal Cabana, ad Crisp Cantaloupe Reinkers
Bermuda Bay ink pad for the saying from Feels Good stamp set
Retired single stamp Sail Away
Seriously, you have to see this card, the picture (and I took a lot trying to get a good pic) just does not show the fabulous colors.
The last card, I put into a club members bag before I remembered to take a picture. I thought it might make her smile and she good use a smile because she wasn’t able to attend club because she was in the ER with her daughter. It was made with the new Wildflower Meadow stamp & embossing powder, Pistachio Pudding ink, and some Iridescent Ice embossing. It was a lot like this card.
Just maybe not so shiny.
I Hope you find your hands are all inky when the day comes to and end!
