Babies and Stamp Club

Hello, my crafty friends!  Once again, it has been a while, but it is no fault of mine!  The earliest we could get our internet installed after moving was a week, and then when the day came, they somehow got the location mixed up so they had someone halfway across the province ready to give us internet.  o_0.  At least they gave us a two week credit for our troubles!  Couldn't really ask for more :)  Anyway, on to the cards!  Today I went to a baby shower for twin girls.  Soooo cute :)  So I made this quick little card.  The card stock is from a friend, the ribbon is from a gift, and everything else is Stampin' Up.  I think that a brayer creates a really cool look, quickly!

These next two cards are from Stamp Club, so everything is Stampin' Up, naturally!  This month we were making Christmas cards and focusing on different ink techniques.  This first card involves inking up a stamp and then dabbing it with a darker shade for a dimensional effect.

This card involves using a textured stamp on a solid stamp.  First you ink your solid stamp with the lighter color.  Then you ink your textured stamp with a darker color (in this case, we used the woodgrain stamp).  Then you press your solid stamp onto the textured stamp and then onto your paper.  It looks like a carving!  Hope you enjoyed! <3 JEM
