Stampers Club

My Stampers Club met this past Friday evening - and what a great group. It was at Diane's home and she invited some of her friends to join us for the evening. We had a full house. This month we did the Imbedded Embossing technique that is everywhere right now - it is so neat. Here's the card we did for our Technique binders with a sample and instructions:You can check out all the techniques we've done by clicking on Techniques from our Stampers Club right under my banner at the top of this blog. Next is the actual greeting card we made. Diane had requested a Valentine theme, and I love this Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder - it has a romantic feel to me - so was perfect with the theme. Doesn't it look like the hearts were part of that piece of cardstock all along?
Here is a close up so you can see just how neat the embossing plate presses the heart right into the background - love that!
As many of you know I also have a challenge each month for the club members to make their best card using the previous month's technique - last month we did the reflection technique (see here - ). I was the only one to bring a card for the challenge this month - but I wanted to share it. I used the sweet little girl from Greeting Card Kids and had her looking into a mirror on the wall - hope that's how it came across. Let me know what you think.

I really like all of the cards. I don't think I would of got that the little girl was looking in a mirrior had you not mentioned it, only cause I'm not observant enough. I think it was a really good idea! TFS
