Tuesday Card Club Shenanigans!

Good morning, its a bright one here today!!

On Tuesday night we had fun (as usual) at Card Club and we made 3 cards. I gave the ladies the option of choosing the stamp sets before the class so we made cards with sets we haven't used before! I will show you the cards over the next couple of days.

The first one was with Growing Green, this is very similar to a card I made a few weeks back. I just love Regal Rose with Pear Pizazz and Old Olive, its a scrummy combo!!

We used the blender pens with the ink pads to colour the images. I did get asked some questions as to how to do this. I use Stampin Up Whisper White cardstock and I ink my blender pen up with ink from the lid of my ink pad and make gentle strokes, try it in a circular motion. Don't press to hard, thats the key!

I have recently been using my crimper more often and I made this little frill on the bottom of the card, reminds me of an old fashioned underskirt!

The sentiment is from Curly Cute which is a set I cannot seem to put down at the moment, fab for sentiments!!

Right I think that is it from me today. I have my nephew Lucas this afternoon and need to go to the Post Office before he arrives to send a wedding order. I only now have 2.5 wedding orders left to complete and then I will have finished them all - FOREVER!! I made the decision back in February to stop the weddings and be fully Stampin UP but I had lots of commitments and its been a very long 6 months to get them all finished! Should be done by the beginning of September and then I will be having a big knees up to celebrate!!

Back tomorrow with another card from Tuesday CLub
