May Stamp Club Cards

I meant to post these earlier, but I have had a crazy few months (I'll post more on this later).  I wanted to use some of the products from the new Summer Mini Catalogue this month for my stamp clubs, so here's what we're making.
I am so thrilled that Stampin' Up! has decided to pair with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation with the creation of the Strength & Hope set.  ($2 from the sale of the set goes to the BCRF.)  I wanted to use lots of pink for this card because it ties in with the cause of breast cancer research.

I chose to use the Lap of Luxury designer series paper because there's lots of pink in it!  I added a Pretty in Pink satin ribbon bow as well.  For the background, I stamped the En Francais stamp in Pretty in Pink on some Very Vanilla cardstock.

I stamped the butterfly in Regal Rose ink on some Pretty in Pink cardstock, cut it out, and applied Dazzling Diamonds glitter all over it using my two-way glue pen.  To finish it off, I added a small chain of Rhinestone jewels down the center.
This next card is, of course, very similar to this card that I posted last month!  But this time, I'm using the new Beyond the Garden dsp, and I used the new Blossom Bouquet triple layer punch for the center of the flower.  The flower itself is punched with the large Scallop Circle punch.  I used the Brights textured cardstock for all the parts of the card (Melon Mambo, Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight), along with some Wild Wasabi for the stem and leaf.

The greeting is stamped with Short & Sweet in VersaMark and embossed with Melon Mambo embossing powder (LOVE the new coloured embossing powders!).

The final card is a CASE of this card by Anne Marie Hile.  I didn't change much because she did such a fantastic job!

I wanted to do some watercolouring with my ladies, so I stamped the boat from Sail Away in black Staz-On ink on some watercolour paper, then used my Aqua Painter to colour it in with my watercolour crayons.

This card also uses the new Binder's Twine in Cherry Cobbler from the Summer Mini, along with some Striped Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon.  The Cherry Cobbler piece at the top of the card is embossed with my Square Lattice embossing folder. 

We only have one more month of clubs left, so I'm sad that we'll be done for the summer.  I have such wonderful ladies in my clubs, so I'm hoping they'll be back in the fall!

Blessings to you,
