May Stamp Club Cards

I am very excited about Stamp Club this month and the promotions that Stampin' Up! has for National Scrapbooking Month! I wanted to incorporate the specials into the projects, so here's what we're doing. Since designer paper and textured cardstock are on sale (buy 3, get one free!), I wanted to make sure I used lots of them in our cards.
The first card is a Triangle Trifold card (an oldie but goodie!). I used the Walk in the Park designer series paper from the Occasions mini catalogue, and pulled the Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Regal Rose from there as my colour scheme. I used the Great Friend stamp set (also from the Occasions Mini) because it goes so well with the paper! To finish off, I added some Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon.
This birthday card uses designer series paper and textured card stock, plus features the Jumble Alphabet that will be in the new catalogue in July (and is on sale this month as a Sneak Peek promotion!). I used the Good Morning Sunshine paper with Tangerine Tango textured cardstock. I haven't used Tangerine Tango very much, so I thought it was time to pull some out! I also used Certainly Celery, Pacific Point and Old Olive, along with some Celery twill ribbon. The tag has stamps from Party Hearty and On Your Birthday.
The final card is one I received in a swap. It was designed by Donna Wizniuk, a very talented stamper! I had it up on my display board and everyone kept asking to make it, so I thought it was time! I used the sticky pages with the Beautiful Butterflies die to cut out the butterfly. Then it's covered with silver microbeads and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. There is a layer of vellum underneath dry embossed with the Big Shot swirly texturz plate. It also features one of my new favourite ribbons - Organza ribbon! The antennae are stems from the flowers in the Pretties kit. I love this combination of Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I never would have thought of putting those two together, but it's such a beautiful, soft look.

I hope the ladies enjoy these cards! Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,
