Stamp Joy Cards


Today is the last day of March and I am posting a set of cards for our newer challenge--Catch-up Club!  A few of my SCS and stamping friends, Darlene, Jeanette and Terry along with myself, have signed up for a number of virtual stamping events in the past 2 1/2 years.  One of the benefits of these events are that they are available to rewatch or even watch for the first time at a later date as they are all recorded. The 4 of us "try" to watch live and chat by texting during the event.  But, life steps in and there are times when one or more of us are not participating during the live.  Then, the kits from sponsors sits in our stamping area until we are ready to watch the video and create.  During one of the events, we decided we needed to push ourselves (and each other) to get some of these events done!   So--we all decided to devote one day a month, the last day of the month for the procrastinators that we are, to post cards we missed making.   So--here we are in our 5th month of The Catch Up Club!

These are 2 of the cards from the Friday Morning class of the recent Virtual Stamp Joy, sponsored by Taylored Expressions.  We were on our trip to SE Asia when the event was held, but I still signed up!  I love Taylored Expressions and this event is so fun.  Great Classes and Awesome Instructors!

These cards use the Flower Market stamp and die set that came with the class.  The sentiment are from All Together Occasions 2, also with a coordinating stamp set.  The background is Linen.  

The card is the circle on the left was colored with Copic Markers.  The card on the right with the milk can uses colored pencils, blended with Gamsol.  


I think these two cards are so pretty.  I am now working on the 2nd two cards from the class and then will start on the 10 cards from Saturday's class too.  I am at a retreat this weekend, so my plan is to complete all of those!

I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Here are the links to the other of the Catch Up Club.  Please be sure to check out Jeanette's, Terry's, and Darlene's blogs.  They may post today or tomorrow, but we have all promised to post cards that was have missed the making along the way!
