Hostess club May

We had a really fun time this morning. I never seem to have enough manly cards in my stash, so I wanted to spend this month adding some that I will use in the next couple of months. The new Jackson Paper pack  X7195B is perfect.

Happy Father's Day or any other perfect Masculine card.  3 D shirt and tie is just the right card for the man in your life, be it Father's Day, Birthday, Congratulation, Thinking of you or any other time you need that special card for that special man. Thank you Brenda Keenan for posting this great tutorial great tutorial on making this card. I used the Jackson bulk paper and made two versions, one for my hubby for Father's Day and one for my oldest Grandson's Graduation. I love how our paper has two sides and took full advantage of that to provide both versions.My hostess ladies will be able to choose which they prefer and I didn't have to prep anything different to give them this choice.

Pop Up:
Jackson paper, cut 3 x 5 1/4, score long side @ 1/4, 1 3/4, 2 3/4, and 4 1/4. Fold on score line. Before you glue box together:  1)Cut oval in the top panel and  2) run adhesive around edge of oval on inside of box 3) take 1/4 of a tissue and arrange it on underside of oval with excess sticking out  4) glue box and reach inside to make sure no glue residue can be felt, if need be dust inside of box so it won't stick to itself when folded down. 5) apply adhesive to back and bottom of box and adhere at the fold line in the center of the card.
Stamp set used was retired C1318 Best Wishes using the Get Well Soon Stamp.

Whitewashed Color technique inspired by Marie Farson at Scrips and Scraps Blog. I changed things up a little bit to make it easier to do in the time frame of hostess club. Stamped the images from S1205 retired Stamp of the Month, Friendship Bouquet with Versamark and embossed with White Daisy embossing powder on a 5x6 1/2 Kraft cardstock. Then I took a dauber and sponged on White Daisy pigment ink over all the open areas. I took a que tips and applied color to selected areas leaving white showing using honey, sunflower,cocoa, chocolate and topiary inks. A simple sentiment embossed in Cocoa embossing powder on a strip of retired paper completes the card. I also embossed a flower the the front of the envelope.

 I hope that you like my selected cards, as always if you have any questions please ask. I would love to have comments on these cards. If you live in the Tidewater Virginia area and would like to join my Hostess club and make fun cards like these, then please contact me. We have a couple of openings at this time. Don't live in the area, but would like to make these or any of my cards in the past. Contact me @ and but hostess club in the title and we can discuss how you can receive all the materials needed to complete your cards, with stamping and embossing done so that all that would be required is assembly.
