Valentine’s Stamp Club

Surprise, ladies.  I am actually posting this on Valentine’s Day with the cards we exchanged at last night’s Creative Images meeting!  I guess it seemed appropriate to do it on Valentine’s Day.  It helped that Russel is home today and could process the pics off the camera for me.  I could do it, but his puter resizes the pics easier than mine.

We only had five ladies present last night, but three more sent in their exchange cards, so we had 8 great Valentines in our “All About Love” exchange.   Click on any pic for details and back to return.

First is Ella’s card.  Interesting crumpled tissue technique to add dimension.  Lots of glitter and little details.


Ella brought in Therese’s gate fold Valentine with lovely watercoloring.


Helen made this lovely delicate card, with tiny flowers with pearls.  I like how she punched two modern labels and cut the bottom one in half to show under the first one.


Helen brought in Herman’s card.  That “OR” on the outside was a strong warning.


Everyone cracked up when they opened it.  I got this in the exchange and Russel laughed out loud, too.


Jeannie’s card has punched layers with a “my friend” sentiment with a cute heart clip.  Helen also brought in Lona’s card which uses embossed shiny red CS reminiscent of her Spirelli string techniques.

I had to make two of this “love you” card with tiny embossed hearts.  Russel loves his card.  I hid them both from him, to surprise him today.  He processed these pics before I gave him his card, but he knew this one was mine when he saw the pic.  He recognized my style!  Love him.


Tange made this gorgeous red and black Valentine, using punches and embossing folders. Lots of layers.  Will have to CASE this one next year.


Helen had our project last night, a cute basket made with a heart box die.  My picture of her sample came out horribly, but here it is.  It has brads on the side holding on the ribbon.  Ready to be stuffed with chocolates!

Project sample

Helen had also planned on another project, so she brought it along in case we had time to give it a try.  It uses the screen that Lona gave us and is called “punchinella” or something like that.  You ink up the screen, lay down your card front, and brayer it to transfer the ink.  I think we all gave it a try.  I like how she colored her roses.

Punchanella sample

Tange brought a card for show and tell, and just because, I took a pic.  A lovely Christmas magic card.

I’d like to finish up with sending good thoughts to Janice to feel better and to Pam to sing good at Carnegie Hall next Monday.  You go, girl!

Thanks for stopping by.
