Our November card club reveal is today.  It was my turn to send out the goodies this month.  I had a bit of a hard time deciding what to choose but I found the perfect set from 7Gypsies at Michael's that I knew would work out great.  Once I sorted it all out I added some additional fun items from my stash.
Here is the kit

In making my cards this month I decided simple was the key.  So all four I kept pretty simple.
Here is a picture of all four.

This first one I used the bit of packaging from Prima that I just loved.  I also used the cut out for the corner as it just added that extra something.  Behind the bird cage is a bit of mulberry paper.  Cute but simple.

This next one I decided to use the packaging again for both corners as I really liked the look.  I used a background stamp on the card itself to mimic wood after coloring it with my Copic airbrush system in a nice olive green.  Then I added a bit of flocked paper with a piece of beige ribbon that is almost like fishnet.  Topped off with a greeting and some bling on the ends.  Again simple but elegant.

On this one is my favorite new stamp by Prima.  The piano is so whimsical all I did was add a little color with one of my Tim Holtz distress markers to the inside circles in places.  This card I also used a background stamp then two sheets of patterned paper along with the corrugated piece colored with the Copic airbrush system under the piano stamped image that was cut out.  A little bling in the corner and a music bar for interest and here is another very simple design.

I saved the best for last.  I loved this piece of tissue paper and was trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a card accent.  The perfect solution was to run it like a piece of ribbon through the ribbon holder.  I used some distress ink in Picked Raspberry to outline all the pieces on this card.  The buttons have some brass colored metallic thread to finish them off.  I stamped the little balloon with a small Happy Birthday stamp that I had in my stash.

I hope you enjoyed my reveal today.  If you have some time go over to the other ladies in our group to check out what they made this month.

Thanks for stopping by.
