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.

March 2012 Stamp Club

March 3 and 5, 2012
All images and materials Stampin' Up!

He Is Risen Card
CASED from Susan Brummer

Adapted Joy Fold Christmas Card
CASED from Linda Heller at StampingSchool

On my card, all the berries are colored with red marker.   There are two other ways you could work with the berries on the very front panel.   One is to use the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Diamonds on those.   That turns out really pretty - gives it some sparkle.   Also - you could use a 1/8" (I think) circle punch and punch them out.  Or use the small hole punch on the Crop-A-Dile.
Stamp set used is Easy Events.  We're having a good time with that card as it has images for a number of different occasions.

Mixed Bunch Get Well Card
Direct CASE from Chris Smith

The above flower and the butterfly below are made with the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the Blossom punch which are in the Occasions Mini Catalog January 4 - April 30, 2012.  To make the butterfly, you just cut off two of the petals of the flower as shown.  I thought that was a pretty neat idea.

This was a card made a while back - Nora still had her copy from her birthday several years ago.  This is the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set.  This too, was CASED, by I don't remember who from.
