January Club

We had a great get together at Sara's on Saturday.  I have really missed everyone as we took a month off in December.  We made some great birthday cards and Valentines too.

The first one was our technique card.  I taught them the Marbled Background technique.  It was so fun to see everyone rocking and rolling their marbles.  At least no one LOST them!  I think many of these will be circulating around for Valentines Day!

This card started with a Basic Black card base and then I used Riding Hood Red for the ink.  The stamp in from the Occaisions Mini Catalog.  It is Be My Valentine.  The ladies wet embossed it and stamped a second image in Riding Hood Red to layer the banner on top.  The ribbon is my new fav - 3/8" taffeta!  It is gorgeous and even though it isn't an exact match to the paper, it is the right hue and very easy to work with.

The second card was a birthday card using another Occaisions Mini Catalog set - Create a Cupcake.  It also used the coordinating punch Build a Cupcake.  I LOVE it when Stampin' Up! has a matching stamp set and punch!  It makes me happy -

The colors are Blushing Bride and Early Espresso; definately a great combo.  The sentiment comes from another Occaisions Mini set called Bring on the Cake.  Definately a MUST have for Birthday sentiments, it comes with 13 great sayings to add to both inside and outside of birthday cards and gift cards too. 

I will share the other 2 cards tomorrow..  but you will LOVE them!
