September Card Club...Part 1

 This month's card club saw us trying some new things...a non card project and a simple, yet very effective technique using acetate.

Starting with the acetate based card. We used:
  • Daffodil Delight Blendabilities
  • Old Olive Blenabilities
  • Melon Mambo Blendabilities
  • StazOn
  • Window Sheets
  • Petite Petal stamp set
  • Mossy Meadow inkpad
  • Hello Honey inkpad
  • Hello Honey ribbon 
  • Kind Koala stamp
  Here's how the card looks when you gently pull upwards on the ribbon.
 This video shows the card in action.

Then we tried a simple deisgn we could easily reproduce in a variety of different colourschemes.
We used:
  • Work Of Art stamp set
  • Rose Red inkpad
  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock
  • Blackberry Bliss inkpad
  • Lovely Lilac inkpad
  • Blackberry Bliss ribbon

I slightly changed this card from the original we were meant to follow, I made mine portrait instead of landscape and I moved the sentiment to the bottom corner rather than having it on the centre of the card.
We used:
  • Real Red cardstock
  • Real Red inkpad
  • Tempting Turquoise inkpad
  • Bermuda Bay inkpad
  • Daffodil Delight inkpad
  • Lovely Lace embossing folder
  • Remembering Your Birthday stampset

The final project was the non-card project...
We used:
  • Glass photo frame
  • Papillon Potpourri stampset
  •  Swallowtail stamp
  • Windowsheet
  • Daffodil Delight Blendabilities
  • Old Olive Blendabilities
  • Melon Mambo Blendabilities
  • Pumpkin Pie inkpad
  • Daffodil Delight inkpad 

September card club part 2 will be at the end of month, playing with another new stamp set to make some christmas cards.
