Crazy Card Fun!

My BFF Amy host's card club at her house once a month for our mommy's group. I made a few of these from there and then when it was just playtime for ME at Amy's she got out some of her left overs for me to create with!


I love the colors of this first one. The mat blue piece also has SPARKLE! {heart} sparkle!




This one was inspired be hers. She showed me how to use the bottom of a paper sack with the top note die to create a little purse! SO CUTE! She had JUST gotten the pom poms in, so I added em' Then the flower punch, with the bird punch and here we are!














I embossed his little wing here... LOVE theses, and they were SO easy!














A Card Club creation, Amy's design: Simple yet so elegant.




















PLAYTIME: We used the fabulous technique of embossing SEVERAL layers for ultra thick melt and then pressing a stamp into it while wet so the it leaves the impression! Amy's trick: Use craft ink to color the butterfly first! (It was cut from the Big Shot-I couldn't believe it)!



















Playtime again: Another Technique: Glossy paper, coloring with the Versa Pen over the stamped flower to make it resist against the blue brayer! A bit lengthy but so gorgeous!




















Card Club: LOVE this one!




















Playtime: A fancy fold! This is the card laying down with (of COURSE) a co-ordinating envelope! The brown on top folds perfectly over the vanilla from the inside.




















Opening it:














A top view:

It was GORGEOUS!














A special thank you to my sweet Am's for inspiring me and tolerating me in her class! I look forward to our next PLAY DATE dear! XOXO
