Easter Card

Carol, my downline
made this Easter card for her club. The tulips are made out of the owl punch. Clever idea!!!
Everything is still going well on the home front!! Yesterday was bitter cold but today seems to be better. I am going to the Assisted Living today with Julie to make 2 cards with the residents and then off to a luncheon with my retired friends. Have a great day!!!!

Embossing Folder Card

This is a Happy Birthday Card we made in club this month.

First of all you will take your ink pad and cover the top inside of the embossing folder.

Add your card stock on the inky part and close the folder.

Run the
folder through the Big Shot and you will come out with this beautiful design. A very fun and beautiful technique to work with.

Scalloped Punch Card

 These little
cards are all over the internet but I got the directions from Tami White . They look difficult but very easy to make. We made these in our club this month.
1. Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card stock in half but do not crease
2.  Cut edge in scalloped punch
3. Cut off top and bottom from scallop to edge on both scallops with scissors or a cutter.
4. Score on 4 1/4 inches fold and then score opposite tag.
5. Add Designer Series Paper and embellishments.

Sea Salt Card

Hi, I am back again
I don't know where the days go but I am obviously way behind. I spent some time last week up at my daughters helping her as she is expecting our first grandchild plus the snow that we have had. I just finished my last physical therapy classes yesterday! I am walking everyday and feel so much better. We have been trying to have club for the last 2 weeks due to the weather and we finally got them in the last 2 days! I got this idea for this card from Patty Benett. It was a fun technique to do.
Wet water color paper using an Aqua Pen
Drop several drops of reinker on wet paper. I used Costal Cabana and Pistachio
Use you aqua painter to spread out reinker
Drop Sea Salt randomly onto wet areas. Let dry.
When dry, wipe off salt.
Emboss with Ampersand embossing folder.
Sand the raised edges of the Ampersand.
Finish adding the embellishments.
