3/$5 Card Making Night - September

I started my 3/$5 card making nights again after taking a break in August. I was so excited to get back into this, not only to have friends over, but to do a little more stamping again! I like having these events because it gives me the chance to get in my craft room and play with all of my "toys"!

I had seen this "four square" concept in my search for finding a cute Fall-themed card and this is what I finally came up with after fiddling around with it for a little bit.

Stamp Sets: Season Of Friendship

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Cajun Craze

Accessories: 1 1/4" striped Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
This was one of those cards I created that I was so happy with the way it turned out that I couldn't wait to share it with others! I spent a lot (and I mean A LOT) of time trying to come up with this design. I'm such a perfectionist!!

Stamp Sets: On Your Birthday

Paper: Rose Red, Regal Rose (flowers), Pink Pirouette (heart/scalloped oval), Old Olive (branch), Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand (owl eyes), Whisper White, Rose Red DSP

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories: Two-Step Owl Punch, Rose Red double-stitched grosgrain (retired), silver brads, Little Leaves Sizzlits Die, dimensionals

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
I CASEd this card from the wonderfully and super talented Andrea Walford. I wanted something a little quicker and easier to reproduce, so I simplified it a bit.

Stamp Sets: Perfect Punches

Paper: Whisper White, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Sunny Garden DSP (love!)

Ink: Early Espresso

Accessories: oval punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates, dimensionals

Just yesterday, I did a 3/$5 Christmas card workshop...I'll be back later to share those cards, as well!
