3 for $6 Card Making Night - June

On Tuesday night I traveled to my mother-in-law's home and held a 3 for $6 card night with her and her friends! She lives about an hour away and we started to have card nights every other month since there were so many friends interested in making cards, but it was such a long drive for them to come my way (understandable!). With the beginning of summer, it wasn't as well attended as the last one, but I really enjoyed being able to stamp with the few ladies that were there and answer questions without feeling like I was running around everywhere!

The first card is a CASE from the ever-so-talented Mary Fish with just a few little changes made. I just love this Tiny Teacup stamp and I'm so glad it's staying in the next catalog. My mother-in-law holds a monthly "Grandma's Tea" with her friends and I knew this was the perfect stamp for her (she ended up purchasing one for herself!) It's a single stamp with the tea cup and the "hello" right underneath it. I've seen some really fun things made with this ONE stamp! It doesn't show it in this picture, but I ended up adding a small little flower with a rhinestone in the middle and stuck it right next to the hello. I'll try to update with a new picture later!

This next card I actually used for one of my card nights last summer, but I just had to pull it out again to use for this summer as it was new to these stampers AND the Tart & Tangy stamp set is retiring, so I wanted to ink it up some more!! I added the rhinestones this year instead of the silver brads which is what I used last time. If you look closely you'll see the polka-dotted textured background on the Pumpkin Pie card stock.

The last card we created each guest had their choice of what color scheme they wanted to go with. It was interesting to see which colors were the winners and by far more chose the green and purple (it would have been my first choice, too!) You may recognize these cards as I shared about how to make a "quilt" card awhile back. I added a little butterfly accent this time around.

I just loved loved loved this project!! We made the Rolo's treats at stamp club and I just posted a pic on my blog. I had to buy the Rolo's in bulk but we stuck 7 together with glue dots and that worked to roll them up. Loved the box template on CPC.
