January Cards for Class

Here are the card designs that we made at my January Club Class.

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, but unfortunately I didn't write the artist's name down. If it's you, please let me know. Melon Mambo cardstock base, layered with Daffodil Delight dry embossed with the Lovely Lace embossing folder on the Big Shot. The horizontal stripes strip comes from Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper. A retired Tempting Turquoise button threaded with Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine attached with glue dots. The images come from the Flower Patch set and the Something to Say set stamped in Black Stazon, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, and Garden Green ink using the two-step stamping technique. A cheery card for a friend!

This is my original design. I started with a Wild Wasabi cardstock base with a layer of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, then the Printed Blooms Designer Series Paper is dry embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder on the Big Shot. Blackberry Bliss 3/8" satin ribbon is wrapped around the upper left corner and attached with scotch tape, then the DSP and Blackberry Bliss layers are raised with Dimensionals on top of the Wild Wasabi base. The tag is made from the You Brighten My Day Sale-a-Bration set stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and punched out with the Note Tag Punch. Using a scrap of Daffodil Delight I punched the butterfly with the Bitty Butterfly punch and accented it with the Rhinestone Jewels. Simple but beautiful!

This card was inspired by Karen Barber. It uses the stamp set Bloom with Hope on Very Vanilla and Basic Black cardstock. Using the Memento Tuxedo Black Inkpad, I colored the flowers with the new Blendabilities pens in Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive. I used the Stampin' Chalk Marker and Signo Uniball White pen for the white flowers. The front is finished off with Brights Candy Dots. Coloring Fun for sure!!

This is my original design for a cute Valentines Card.  Starting with the Perfectly You (retired Hostess set) stamped in Black Stazon Ink, it was punched out with the 2-1/4" circle punch. Red Glimmer Paper was punched out with the 2-1/2" circle punch. Those were mounted with Dimensionals on top of two banners made from Back to Black Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Polka Dot Parade DSP. This was mounted on Whisper White cardstock on top of a Real Red cardstock base. In the upper right corner two more normal hole punches from the glimmer paper were attached by glue dots. Lots of Love to send!

Thanks for taking a look at the card designs. Have a great day!
