H is for Handcrafted Cards

By the Tide card taught to us by Margarita DelaCruz

Last Wednesday, while visiting my daughter, I was able to attend a Stamping Club with her. My downline, Margarita DelaCruz, is the Stampin' Up! demonstrator for this club. I brought one project for the group to do and Margarita had two cards for us to make. The card above is made using the By the Tide stamp set; Honeycomb embossing folder; Oval Framelits and Window Sheets!

The second card Margarita taught us to do was the Spinner Card above! This was the first time I have made one of these and it was so much fun! For this card we used the Pinwheel Sizzlits Die; Word Window Punch; Cloudy Day Embossing Folder; Scallop Oval and Large Oval Punches. 

I am hoping to be able to teach these two cards to my Happy Stampers soon! 

While I was visiting my daughter we had a couple of productive paper crafting sessions. I made 17 cards--9 thank you cards to send my customers; 4 birthday cards; 4 general cards. I will try to share these cards with you over the next couple of weeks.

Have a great day!
