Here are some cards a couple of ladies came over and made last night. We are using some things that are not "new" but used for the first time by us. It was a fun night.
I am looking forward to the new Stampin' Up! catalog year. The new catalog is just beautiful and full of great sets that work well together. Lots of great ways to build on the basics. I plan on helping you make the most out of your purchases this year with a card class in a box idea. Stay tuned for more info. It will be great.
These two cards use very simple techniques. The Carte Postal card uses all of the coordinating items in the catty: wheel, stamps, and background stamp. The background stamp is stamped in black on glossy cardstock and then sponged with mustard, celery and artichoke. The wheel is on the celery background , and the bird is from the stamp set as well as the Merci. Very quick and elegant card. Thanks Robyn for coming up with that.
Snowflake spot card uses Faux tearing technique, metallic and white inks, and our new rhinestone brads. Simple but festive.
