A couple of cards from last weeks Hostess Club....

Hey All - was a busy busy weekend but camping was great in spite of the wind - HOLY COW did it blow!  Will have some newer cards to show you later in the week when I finish getting them put together.  Got some great coloring time in this weekend....Was interesting without any markers - nothing but Prisma Color Pencils and water color pencils - haven't done THAT for quite a while ......In the mean time here are a couple of cards from last weeks Hostess Club.....

This is one of my favorites - simple and easy - yet elegant.  Using a stamp set that I hate to see discontinued - "Little Things"  The ladies got to choose their sentiment for inside the card....  I also used Emma SWIC and coordinating cardstock - so pretty!  Oh ya - and the 'Faux Brads" in the bottom of the right hand corner were a big hit!

This one was also fun and easy - using one of the discontinued PWP stamps as well as the swirl from "Wonderful News" we created  a simple easy card that will fit in a standard letter sized envelope so we stamped on that to match :)  All we did was take a 6"x 6" piece of cardstock, score at 3" and fold in half.  4 cards out of 1 12" x 12" piece of cardstock!  Cool huh?  They also had the choice to use the Thank You Oval PWP stamp here.  On the inside they used sentiments from the "Wonderful News" set that would continue with the "For You" or the "Thank You"

For the third and last card that we did at our Hostess Club check out Stacy's Blog at

Have a great week - hope you enjoy!  Will be back soon with some new cards using images from our great sneak peak sets!

You Make My Heart Sing!

June and July Only!  Check out the cute images in this limited edition stamp set - available from The Angel Company for only $10.95  for the set of 8 with any $30.00 purchase!  I had so much fun playing with them!

Hard to get a good picture but I love this card and this little sweetie reminded me of a strawberry as soon as I saw her....Copics used were: G14, YG6, R35, R37, R01, R02, R11 and B00.  I also used TAC Scarlet cardstock, Premium White CS, and DCWV Green CS, the clear star gel pen, white gel pen, red scrappers floss and colored the ribbon and gems with my markers so they all match!

 This is also for Kerry's Color Throwdown #5 to use Red, White, Blue and Yellow....
I used Copics again to color (I love my Copics!) R00, E000, E00, E01, BOO, B41, B45, R35, R37, Y32, Y35, and Y38.  I also used TAC Scarlet CS, Blue CS from the Toodle Loo SWIC and yellow DCWV CS, the white gel pen for a little faux stitching and a few freckles.  Again used the Copics to color my gems to match.

 Isn't this little guy adorable? Another fun and easy card.  Copics used were: BG05, G14, G99, YG06, RV29, E00, E21, E31 and C1 for a shadow.  And again I used Scarlet CS, Green DCWV, and Blue Bazzil CS, and colored plain silver brads to match with the Copics too!

 I used my trusty Scor-Buddy to add a little interest to this one, making diagonal score lines on the bottom half of the card.  Easy way to add just a little extra detail :)
And again colored my brads with Copics.  I used Bazzill Tan, Red and Green CS. Popped up the sweet sentiment on pop dots, and added a little piece of ribbon.  Copics used were: YG03,G99, R27, R29, R20, E31 and E33.

 Another one that I was playing with for Kerry's Color Throwdown #5 to use Red, White, Blue and Yellow.   This one was made using only scraps and a couple of buttons. I colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and OMS this time and added some Paper Glaze on the balloon and the flower.

And last but not least - this one is for my daughter and downline Stacy, we do classes together and have so much fun. This was her favorite.  Although it is hard to see in the picture, the wings on this little sweetie were dotted with the clear star gel pen and then I went over them with Paper Glaze so they have some sparkle and dimension.  Just couldn't get a good picture. Copics used were: YG6, G14, R35, R37, R01, R02, R11, and B00.  A simple card but fun and easy.

Hope you enjoyed these cards!  Thanks Kerry for the images, I have had so much fun playing with them!  Can't wait to show these to my hostess club ladies this week
Have a great week all!
