Club Scrap Creative License Card

I finally had time to get out my Club Stamp Kit and make a card.  You would think by looking at this card that it is for a male graduate but the young lady this card is going to happens to drag race with her parents and my DH at Bandimere Speedway so I know she will like the tone of this card.

I used the Club Stamp Creative License kit for DP and the Club Scrap Embellishment kit for the sentiment and the dream key and key chain.  I wanted the graduate to be able to remove the key and chain from the card so I used two eyelet holes for the key chain to thread through.  I popped the DP up from the card base so it is easy to take the key and key chain off the card.  It's a busy weekend for us with two graduation parties.  I'm off to make another graduation card.

Happy Crafting!

Club Scrap Creative License Blog Hop

Time for another Blog Hop at Club Scrap.  This month it's all about cars!  The new Creative License kit is so much fun to work with.  Especially since DH is into drag racing.  Here's a quick page showing two of the drag racing cars we have owned. I don't have photos of the newest one yet - need to get up to the track and see it run. I used the digital kit that I get at the first of the month to do this page.


I'll be back later this week with some cards out of the Club Stamp kit.  My kit just arrived yesterday so I haven't had much time to play with it yet.  Be sure to check out the Club Scrap blog and link up your Creative License projects.

Happy Crafting!

Cards in Envy Deep Blue

Time for another challenge at Cards in Envy.  This time we would like you to use mostly Deep Blue colors on your cards.  This reminded me of a Club Stamp Kit from May 2015 called "The Blues." I have a niece graduating from High School this month who lettered in Choir so I created this musical card for her.

I used SU Night of Navy as my ink and boy is that deep blue ink! LOL  I added some Wink of Stella to the dark blue inked areas so it is not so dark.  

At Cards in Envy we ask that your cards be no more than 1/4" think without lumps so they fit in a standard mail envelope.  We no longer have a size restriction on cards.  Come check out what the other members of the Design Team did and then link up your card with us on the

Cards in Envy Just Us Girls

It's time for a new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog.  This time we want to see your feminine cards.  Nothing to me is more feminine than floral cards.  I am in love with this Dahlia DP from Club Scrap designed by Swarup Murthy (Sanketi on her blog).  Here's a card that I think will be perfect for my Mom this Mother's Day.

My Mom is 88 years old and has Macular Degeneration.  When we go out she always wants to hold on to me (even though she has a cane to help keep her balance).  I realize that she held my hand when I was little and needed help - now it's my turn to help her.

Cards in Envy asks that you only post cards that are flat (no more than 1/4" thick) so they can me mailed in a standard envelope.  We have no size restrictions on cards now.  Check out the other design team members cards on the Cards in Envy blog and then link up your feminine cards with us.

Club Stamp Dahlia Cards

Yesterday I discussed the differences between the Club Scrap Greetings to Go kits and the Club Stamp Kits.  Last night I had some time to finish up some cards from the Club Stamp Kits.  Sometimes I use Tricia's cutting directions to make my cards.  Other times I get inspired to create cards without using the directions.  This month I used Tricia's Assembly Line Cardmaking (ALCM) directions because I wanted to be sure I would use all the gorgeous pieces of paper to the limit.  (Something that Tricia is famous for!)   I do one thing different withe the ALCM directions.  Instead of using all the cardstock to make the card bases (8.5 x 5.5 inches), I cut them in half (4.25 x 5.5 inches).  I make card fronts and mount them to white cardstock bases.  That way I have extra cardstock to play with.  Here's two cards I created using Tricia's ALCM but adding my own additions to them.

On this card I stamped the butterflies in Eggplant and colored them with orange and purple.  They have a coat of Wink of Stella for sparkle.  They show up dark in the photo but look much lighter IRL.  I also inked the edges of the DP to give it some depth.

On this card I switched out a Happy Birthday stamp from the Club Scrap Bugs set and added the multi-colored ribbon from the Embellishment Kit 
(I always order the Embellishment Kit as an add on to my kit order).

Come back on Monday for my Cards In Envy card to see one more of the Dahlia Cards from the Club Stamp Kit.

Club Scrap Dahlia Blog Hop

It's that time again for the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop - this month showcasing the beautiful Dahlia kit with watercolor designs by Swarup Murthy (Sanketi on her blog).
I get the digital kit at the beginning of the month and I created this page with it.

On the 20th of the month my Club Stamp kit arrives and I like to make cards with that kit.  I didn't get a chance to finish my cards - I'll be back tomorrow with them.  The difference between the Greetings to Go and the Club Stamp is that Greetings to go has more pre-printed sentiments and different card sizes.  Club Stamp is for stampers who like to make A2 sized cards.  All of the papers are designed to fit that size of card.  With either kit you get fantastic instructions by Tricia (Club Scraps owner).

Silver Linings W2CB#28 #rrcb36

I had some time today to squeeze in a card for two challenges.  

I designed this card for the Retro Rubber Challenge.  The water puddles stamp at the bottom of the card is from the Club Scrap Serenity Kit September 2012.  The heart raining clouds stamp is a Hostess Stamp Hello Love from Stampin'Up from their 2014 catalog.  The sentiment is from the Stampin'Up Sprinkles of Life in their current catalog.  Hard to see but the dark clouds are cut from silver foil with the Memory Box Puffy Clouds die. 

I also want to enter this in the Words 2 Craft by challenge.

Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns
and shadow of April showers.   Byron Caldwell Smith


I think my showers fit well with their theme too.

It is time for a new challenge over on the Cards in Envy challenge blog.  This time we want to see your Birthday cards.  Tomorrow I am over on the Club Scrap Blog as a guest designer for the Dahlia Greetings to Go kit.  This card is a "sneak peek" of the cards that will be on the Club Scrap blog.

Donna Nuce Crafty Colonel for Cards in Envy blog, Club Scrap Greetings to Go Dahlia

The sentiment is a preprinted one that comes in the Greetings to Go kit.  I stamped the Dahlia from the Unmounted Jumbo stamp on vellum and heat embossed with white EP.  Then fussy cut it and mounted it on a card that I scored on the inside front every 1/4".  

Cards in Envy asks that you only post cards that are flat (no more than 1/4" thick) so they can me mailed in a standard envelope.  We have no size restrictions on cards now.  Check out the other design team members cards on the Cards in  Envy blog and then link up your Birthday cards with us.
