May Monthly meeting card that I made in class using the sticker cardstock and A Little Bit Of Happiness stamp.

This was the acrylic album class where the women did an 8 page acrylic album of their gardens. We used the Bind It All to punch through the acrylic and to bind it. Fun, fun class. Kits for this class are available through me at Shop & Crop for $7.00 + tax. This includes the bound acrylic album and a piece of background paper for each page.

Again, a very very simple quick card using a piece of background paper for your card base, a 1/2" strip of striped paper, 2 circles of different colors, a rub on on a solid 1/2" piece of cardstock and some rhinestones to add a little bling. I also added a flower sequin with a mini brad in it.
This is a square card.

Another card using "A Little Bit of Happiness." This is also the card that was put into the orders for the club 10 in May. The scallops were created using the Spellbinders rectangle die - the largest one and then cutting off the excess to create a scallop.

Another card using that fabulous sticker cardstock. This cardstock goes through your die cut machines great. The cupcake is a Cricut cartridge and I adhered the frosting part with a dimensional and sprinkled yellow glitter on the sticky side. Happy Day is a rub on.

Very quick and simple card. I love those kind.

This was our 3rd project for the May meeting. This is a 4-1/2 x 9" chipboard clipboard. Students were given miscellaneous strips of background paper to decorate their clipboards. Ribbons were added where the different papers met and only attached on the back so photos can be inserted between the ribbons. A piece of 4-1/2x9" paper was attached to the back to make a nice finish.

This was one of our meeting projects for May and I wasn't sure how it was going to go over, but I think the women did a great job. I put a selection of background paper in the middle of the table and some Making Memories die cuts and cards already cut and scored, and told them to make a card. This is the one I did. I used 2 die cuts, one is the lined square and the other is the curved frame on top of it that I attached using dimentionals. The thank you is a rub on. I also doodled around the edge of the green cardstock.
The card is 11" by 5-1/2 and scored at 2-7/8 and 7-1/8". There is a removable adhesive dot to help keep the card closed. All background paper is from Basic Grey.

Here's another one using "A Little Bit of Happiness." This time I used sticker paper - a new favorite item of mine. You cut the cardstock strip, adhere to your card using 2 sided tape. Pull off the plastic coating on the cardstock and sprinkle with the new glitter that is being offered in the mini catalog. Love the colors and the chunkiness of the glitter.

Again, I colored in the image using the aqua painters. If you don't have those, you should get them. They are a great way to color in small images.


I love this level 1 hostess set "A Little Bit of Happiness" and you'll see several cards on my blog here using this set just mixing it up a bit. Try it - see how many different ideas you can get using just 1 stamp set.
I used a brass template to dry emboss the soft sky cardstock and used aqua painters to paint in the picture. I added 2 jumbo eyelets and added the ribbon along with the circle bling.
