March Stamp Club Cards

This is a month's club features CASEd cards.  There are so many cute cards out there that I had to borrow! 
This first one uses the chalkboard technique.  It was created by Becky Roberts.  I embossed the sentiment from Vintage Verses with white embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock, then sponged white craft ink on it to look like chalk dust.  It's embellished with the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits, along with some SAB buttons, flower trim (dyed with Primrose Petals ink), rhinestone and silver glimmer heart.
Of course, we have to do an Easter card this month.  This pocket card is CASEd from this gorgeous card by Kimberly Van Diepen.  It's actually made with an envelope!  She has an awesome tutorial on her blog.  I used the A Little Bit of Spring stamp set with Black Stazon to stamp on the vellum. I also had a chance to use the adorable new Cute Clips from the Spring Catalogue.  I embossed the Marina Mist cardstock with the Honeycomb embossing folder and layered it on with dimensionals.  The designer paper is Sunshine & Sprinkles, and the card is finished off with a Vintage Faceted designer button and some linen thread
This cute elephant card is one that my upline, Winona Semler, featured at one of her events.  It's a tri-fold card (Sahara Sand 4 x 12", scored every 4").  The front is embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  The front circle is punched with the 2 1/2" circle punch.  There is a 2 3/8" scallop circle of Melon Mambo added with dimensionals inside the circle.  The elephant is from the SAB set Patterned Occasions.  The circle that the elephant is stamped on is from the Circles #2 Bigz die.  The card is finished with some Wild Wasabi stitched grosgrain ribbon.
Our final card is one that was shown at Leadership.  I wanted to show my club ladies our fabulous new Delicate Details Lace Tape.  Did you know that it is re-positionable and re-useable?!  I stuck a piece of it to the bottom part of the card and sponged Lucky Limeade ink over it.  Then I removed the lace to show the design underneath.  You can re-use the tape over and over several times to repeat this process!  The card is finished with some Tea for Two designer series paper, some Old Olive Striped Organdy Ribbon and a jumbo rhinestone.  The sentiment is from Vintage Verses.
