Sneak Peek Stamp Club project!

Hello everybody! Stamp Club will be starting in May and I will only take 1 or 2 more people for club so if you are interested, let me know asap so I can save your spot!  This is one of the projects that my stamp club ladies will be enjoying in May! Isn't this ribbon flower just beautiful! If you where to buy these embellishments at a craft store you would be paying $4.00 to $5.00 for 2 of them, ouch! I'm going to show you how to make these flowers for almost pennies with products that you probably have on hand. And if you don't have the products on hand they are products that if you buy you could use over and over again for other projects too! Those are the type of projects that I like! When I saw this idea, I had to drop everything I was doing and try it right away! It's really fun and not hard at all!
I'm also going to have a special ribbon share for my club ladies, so they can make these in any color they want without having to buy every single roll of ribbon!
So what are you waiting for? If this looks like fun to you then let me know that you would like one of the last stamp club spots that are open! Call or email me to let me know. I have many, many months of awesome projects planned for club, you won't want to miss out. I promise!

From the heart - Floral card

Today is the last day to join me on my facebook page to get entered into a drawing for 6 assorted handmade cards. Click on over to angelariddellstamps on facebook and "like" my page.

Today is the last day to sign up for the birthday card class. I have 1 space available. If you would like it, call or email me asap.

Hello! It's sunny today, it's so exciting. I spent a few minutes outside yesterday afternoon in my flower gardens. Picking up the leaves and dead flowers from last season and found many flowers starting to poke through the soil! Warm weather is really almost here! This weekend is supposed to be beautiful and I can't wait and I saw that early next week it may hit 70! And on my journey's today I actually saw GREEN grass. Can you tell I"m excited for spring to actually be here?
So in honor of spring and warm weather and the sun being out, I have a floral card for you to look at.
I used razzleberry and garden green with whisper white and a touch of soft suede for a couple of the flowers. I used my blender pens and ink pads to color in the flowers. This is a 3x6 card when it's folded. I used a 12x12 piece of cardstock for this card and cut it in 1/4's.
 I used lots of rhinestones on this card to give it an extra special touch. Here is a close up of the coloring. I love the way the ferns came out. I used wild wasabi first as my lighter color and then came back and added touched of garden green to make it look more realistic.

 This card is for a newer friend whose been a huge encouragement to me in the last couple of months and I wanted to let her know how much it's meant to me. All the flowers are "popped" up on dimensionals to give the card more interest.
Just a simple strip of razzleberry taffeta ribbon and a 1 1/2 of garden green cardstock and there you have it! I really enjoyed making this card. Coloring is one of my favorite things to do. I find it soothing.
I hope you like it.
Have a great day and happy stampin!

Register a guest by April 7th and make 2 extra cards for FREE. Picture of card you'll make for free is shown below.

Isn't this card just super cute? The green didn't photograph properly, this is more of a celery color and more vibrant then what shows up in this picture. This color combination is super fun and looks great in person.
 This picture is a bit darker, but you can see the texture on the baja blue cardstock a little bit better! Do you see the 3 rhinestones on this card? There is one at the top of the birdcage as well as 2 on the sentiment. These really sparkle in person.
If you want an opportunity to make this card, then sign up for my birthday card class and register a guest! Want to make the card, but don't have a guest to invite? You can make this card for $2.50 and can make up to 2 of them for $5.00. Just let me know when you register!
