Stampin' Up Card Club April/May

Our April Card Club date got moved one week later, so Kathy, Robin, and I could attend the new catalog launch event during our regular club time.

It was AWESOME!  New craft items to play with, new stamp sets, new product!  We received our catalogs for 2014, and 2015... and a free stamp set!  I've already had fun using it.  You'll see a post in a few days on that card.

Two amazing cards this month for Card Club!  The top one uses lots of technique!  Sponging the card background with a fade from dark to light, hand-embossing the vellum (which I didn't do very well), some die-cut flowers, and an embossed Happy Birthday.     A very pretty card!

LOVE this card!  This technique is called an Emboss Resist.  We used the Gorgeous Grunge (one of my current favorites) and clear embossed the image on paper, sponged with Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay ink.  Then cut and adhere the squares, stamp the sentiment... punch holes using the templates, and add a butterfly!

A relatively simple card, but so stunning!
