These photos do not do the cards justice at all, but amateur photogs like myself cannot be choosy, especially when one took a jillion shots and these were the best. Anyway...
I was in Claremont for Stamp Club this weekend and these are the cards we made.
This Easter card has much more detail than the photo shows. I used an impression plate on the Sizzix to make a textured floral background on the green part of the card and a crimper on the patterned paper for even more texture. If you are one of my lucky family members or friends who receives this card in April, you'll know what I am talking about.
This card also has a textured background on the blue section, but this time I used polka dots.
And this card was cut out on the Sizzix using the Top Note Die. This one is my favorite. I got the idea from Lis Ljung, a rockstar in the Stampin' Up world, and have used it for many cards I've made recently.
My club members loved them all and we added a new element to our club this month. We're getting take-out (this month was Mexican food) and eating dinner together first. My Claremont group is filled with terrific ladies who have become good friends over the past 2 years. We all agreed that this new part of club is great and I'm looking forward to pizza and salad from Spaghetti Eddies next month!
