Thursday Club Stampers Season Opener

All members  of our Thursday stampers club came to make cards this week for our first meeting of the fall.  Starting from the right front we have Terry, Claire, Gloria, Suzanne, Priscilla (me), Carol and Jeanne. Everyone made three pretty complicated cards - see the one right in front of Terry with the two little owls.  I showed them a trick I saw on the net on how to pick up the little pieces of the new owl punch with a toothpick and some Tombow glue.  This trick makes it quite easy to place those sneaky Little pieces right where you want them.  

This is another card we made Thursday.  We used the Seeds of Happiness stamp set and the new embossing folder "Elegant Lines".  The flower is stamped with black Stazon on watercolor paper and then water colored with markers and blender pens.  Then the flower is cut out and stamping dimensionals are used to adhere the flower to the card.  The greeting is stamped and punched out with the large oval punch and we used the gold elastic cord from last years holiday mini to tie the sentiment piece to the Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon.  I think white embroidery thread would look very nice too for the tie for this card.  I must remember to buy some.  
We had a fun afternoon and I think everyone liked their cards.  They all did a great job making them.
