January Club - Feminine Flourishes and Feathers.

Well a year has come around and the club is still going strong. We had a full compliment of members along today and we made cards on the theme of Feminine Flourishes and Feathers.

Forgot to set my camera on macro so the photos aren't all that sharp but I just had to include all the different designs we came up with.

Here are my 3 samples:-

Here are the Flourish makes.

And here are the Feather makes.

Lastly a couple of cards I made this evening whilst putting all the stash away.

A good day was had by all.

December Club - Poinsettia

The December Club was somewhat a select gathering with just the 2 of us, but we had a good time chatting and making up some Christmas Cards using a poinsettia die.

One card was inspired by a Tim Holtz tag I did last year and subsequently made into a card. The flower is made with vellum coloured with distress inks and is very delicate.

The other card was inspired by a journal page I made last year too. It uses a traditional red and green poinsettia with a painted and stenciled background.

The cards are rather involved so it was probably a good job there were only 2 of us!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All.

October Club - "For the Men"

This month we did some steampunk type collage cards for the men.

Everyone was able to come today so I enlisted the help of the kitchen table.

This enabled me to put an electric cable in the middle so we were all able to reach the heat tools too.

We made a card together with the supplied pieces then everyone made a version of their own afterwards.

Can you tell this is the first go with heat embossing? Always a magical experience!

Here's all the lovely cards made today.
