Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for visiting my blog about cards and other hobbies. Stamp Club is for anyone that would enjoy making cards and learning new techniques - we would love to have you come! We meet the first Saturday of each month or the following Monday (unless changed because of holidays). (Each monthly get together is held those two days - sometimes one day is more convenient than the other!) An Evite is sent out each month - so if you would like to come to Stamp Club, just email me and let me know to put you on the Evite list: helencashon@gmail.com . Sometimes we have Stamp-A-Stacks or other classes also.

 Fork Bow Wreath Card
Learned Fork Bow from picture tutorial by Jennifer Timko
also look under Tutorials on the right sidebar and see Quilted Bow - made with Potato Maker.  It is a triple bow.

I also did my own picture tutorial for the fork bow using a salad fork as originally instructed.  Then I tried it with a meat fork to get a wider bow.  Wreath is made by punching out a 1 3/8" hole in Garden Green cardstock and then punching over the hole with the 2 3/8" scalloped circle punch.  Bow is made from Cherry Cobbler seam binding.

Joseph's Coat Happy Thanksgiving Card
This card was CASED from France Martin - posted on splitcoast on October 23, 2010.  See her card here.

This was another card a few of us made.  We made this same card November of 2010.  The technique is called Joseph's Coat.
