May Club Cards
I realized Monday night I had not done my cards for club this week. Yikes! I had favorited some I really liked, so this month was more about caseing and being inspired than being creative for club. Thank goodness club all liked the cards!
This is an absolute case of a card done by Monika Davis from LNS. It was a great way to use up some of my DSP. We left the inside blank so it could be used for Father's Day, a birthday or a congrats card for a job or promotion.
See my tutorial blog for the instructions.
Paper: Kraft, L1 Hostess pack, Riding Hood Red textured card stock
Ink: Sahara Sand (sponging edges)
Accessories: Small and Large Tag punches, Heart to Heart punch

This card was inspired by Charlene Monroe from LNS. I did change a few things. I textured the BG piece with the texture plates. I used a piece from the leftover L1 Hostess paper pack, and a few less brads. Charlene used an ruler design on the horizontal strip so I just added more of the tools for that area. I really like how it turned out. I love this stamp set!

Totally Tool, Itty Bitty BGs Stamp Sets
Paper: Sahara Sand, Hostess L1 paper pack, Night of Navy, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Going Grey (BG spots), Neutral markers
Accessories: BB brads, Big Shot Texture Kit #4, Piercing tool

This time of year we had to have a grad card! It's so cool.
The top front lifts up and the bottom created a pocket for a gift card. I cut a square and a diamond for the grad hat. I punched the bottom corners out with a circle punch to make the square piece a base for the hat. Punch a hole, the white is a strand from the tassel. Put this and the brad through hole. Tape tassel to backside of hat.

The ribbon is dyed with Basic Black see here for instructions.

This card was inspired by Rhondag. It was a great way to use up some of the Raspberry Tart DSP. It is 2 of the Big Shot Large Scallop Circle, and 1/2 of another of DSP Big Shot Large Scallop Circle. Score the top scallop at 1" so it folds open. I tied the ribbon around the scallop before attaching the 2 layers to make the card.

Great projects here. I love the Father's Day card with the tie. Each one, tho, is truly creative.
