One of my favorite nights is Shoebox Card Night! I love chatting with my girls and being creative.
Thanks to Julie for bringing candy!! Chocolate just makes the whole night better! And Thanks to Anita for bring "Crack" her amazing Crackers and pecans! (She didn't go home with any because it's amazing!!)
We welcomed back Dixie tonight! So it's great to see her tonight!!
So here's our amazing creations for the night!!
I saw this amazing eyecatching card that Margi Gilbertson created and had to make it... I didn't even have the stamp set, but her dramatic card made me want to get it.
This card uses the Hostess Stamp set D1608 Better with a Friend, Paper fundementals Basic, Peacock green Shinhan marker, Black shinhan marker, and black shimmer trim. I used the cricut to cut a 2 inch circle for the greeting and 2.25 bumpy circle to highlight the greeting. also, the circle embossing folder was used to create dimension on the cardstock.
I Love Love Love this Frank Card! Anita knows that I love Frankie and loves to design a card for me!! So she did this card for me and based her group card on it!! This card is a bendy card! Frank is attached on the very right of the card and there are score marks to allow Frank the bend and open.
The card size is 5.5x7.5. Score at 3.25 then fold. then score 1/8 (three times) to create the bendy fold
And this is my version. Each our "Frankies" had his own personalities!! What a fun and fabulous card!!
Dixie's delightful card was quick and easy, we stamped the trees in a solid green and then overstamped it with a rainbow of green inks to add dimension. Next we added some brown marker to add some branches. And finally we added a touch of blue chalk to the sky.
Julie's Fabulous Fall card featured leaves (added veins with a stylus) and some pop dots for dimension. and the love love the butterfly that has three layers...
Kathy taught us this clever purse that is made from a 12x12 piece of B&T paper. We scored at 1,5,6,7,11 then turn paper and score at 3.25 and 9. then we folded all the lines...
Next fold the 1 and the 11 inch then fold the other direction bringing all to the middle and use paper clips or binding clips on each end and add ribbon.
Lori's darling card uses this amazing butterfly to create this lovely card... just fluttering by to say "Hi!" Who doesn't love a flutterby!! We also talked about how to use wax paper to help when using these cutting templates.
Melani created lots of cards for Dulce to help with a fund raiser and she loved this card... it's a great way to use scraps. it's just strips of paper over a string and glued together. the middle one has been a attached to the card base to hold the string in place. Cute and quick!!
Roxxy's crazy card features punched shapes that cover a card and create a quilt like background. We did this on slightly smaller piece of cardstock (4x5.25) and then mounted it to the card. What a fun saying... What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about? LOL!!
What a lovely evening with lovely friends!! Thanks everyone for taking time to share your talents and ideas with us!
