April Club- Just Beachy

April '09 FishThis post is a little late, but I thought you would like to see the fun projects we did for club in April.  I featured the fun Just Beachy set from the mini catalog and showed them how to do the cracked Glass technique.  I love this technique it looks so cool and is actually really easy to do.I got this fun idea from Kelly.  You can check out her blog here:   http://stampinparadise.blogspot.com.  I changed it a bit. 

 

 

April '09 Fish Close UpI thought if you are really different than maybe you would be a different color.  I don’t know if you noticed it but this fish is the only one in the set that goes the other way.  Here is a close up of the cracked glass.

April '09 BeachHere is the scrapbook page that I came up with using the card as my inspiration.  I love how simple it is, but it has just a fun summer feel.  We colored the fish with the watercolor wonder crayons and a aqua painter.

April '09 B-dayThis is the second card that my card group made.  I totally cased it from a blog, I tried to find it again so I could tell you who, but I couldn’t.  I changed the saying in the center, but the rest is basically like hers.  I thought it was a really cute card.  The size is actually 5×5 go go in our 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 envelops.  The fish are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch and then sponged with the pacific point.

 

April '09 B-day InsideWe stamped Happy Birthday from the $10.00 and under page on the inside.  Of course we used Whisper White craft in so that it would show up.

 

Matchbox Thank You BoxesSince I had also just got the Matchbox die of course we had to try that out as well.  Here is our fun projects using the match box die and the designer series paper from the mini catalog Walk in the Park.

welcome-baby-giraffeI think this baby card is just so cute.  I wish I knew who created it.  I received it in a swap.  The wheel that was used is retired now but there is one similar that you could use to go with it that would give it the same effect.  I love to use the wheels as a quick and easy background.  Sometimes it can make all the difference in how a card looks.

birthday-wishes-cardThis was a fun card that I made for swaps last year.  This card used all the fun in-colors from last year.  I believe they were Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi,  and Soft Sky.  This is a fun masking technique.  I also used watercolor for the presents.  The tag was done using glossy white paper.  I stamped in VersaMark® and then embossed it.  Then I used the brayer to roll color over the top of it.  The back ground was just using a simple roller.  I love using rollers for backgrounds because they are fast and easy.

sun-fun-cardI received this cute card at convention.  I was created by  D. Waterman (I think that was in her email address).  I love how she used the word window punch to create the Popsicles.  The watermelon is made by cutting the 1-1/4″ and 1-3/8″ Circle punches in 1/2.

I really love how she kept the wheel part simple and just rolled it across in the middle.  She also rolled the background of the white part with a different roller.  This is just a fun summer card.  I think it would also be a cute accent on a scrapbookpage.

lucky-me-cardThis is a card I made for a workshop last March.  I found it and thought I would share it with you.  I love the colors of this card.  I would have never thought to put them together.  I got the color scheme from the dsp.  It’s one from an old catalog, but I still love the card.  The ribbon is also retired now but you can still get the ribbon slider in the Hodge Podge Hardware.
