Bitterroot Stampers Club (season 3) Mar 12th (Marti B. is hostess)

Marti B. was the Hostess for this get together.
She made us Chinese for dinner.
We had Chicken Chow Mein with rice and egg rolls.
It was so tasty and full of vegetables.
 I made this little Shamrock treat for everyone. I seem to be addicted to the Scallop Tag Topper Punch! But there are so many things that you can make with it (item number 133324 $22.95)
You can order one from my website.  Go to the link on the right or go here => (shop 24/7)
 The DSP Paper is from the Occasions Catalog, Watercolor Wonder. The Shamrock is made with the small heart punch and Gumball green paper. The tiny rhinestone in the center gives it a little bling.
We made 4 different designs for a total of 8 cards this evening.
We used a marker technique with a spray bottle for this card.

This card used the Sale-A-Bration DSP Sweet Sorbet.  Love this paper and it is free when you purchase 50.00 during Sale-A-Bration which ends March 31.
So cute!  This was my first attempt with washi tape to adhere the Ruffle Stretch Ribbon in Baked Brown sugar. The colors in this card are: crisp cantaloupe, pool party, pistachio pudding, summer starfruit and sahara sand.  Very fresh and springy colors.
 We made a third card using ink to highlight the texture made with an embossing folder.
The colors for this card are pool party, strawberry slush and crumb cake.
This was the first time that I used the candy dots (see banner)
The last card we made could be made as a masculine or feminine card.
The color combination for this card was smokey slate and crushed curry
By switching the metal button with a flower and adding a doily made this card 
go from masculine to feminine.
The gorgeous grunge set is becoming one of my favorites.
There are so many ways you can use it.
