A new year is upon us and with that comes change.  Our card club group has expanded and in order to accommodate  everyone we will be sharing our reveal not only on our blogs but also on our card club forum on Scrappinmojo.com.  Make sure to stop by to check out everyone's great creations.  It is always so much fun to see how everyone uses the product given by that month's hostess.  We are such a diverse group that there are no two alike. 
We do however seem to 'pin' the same things on Pinterest.
So without further ado here is my reveal.
Our hostess this month was Beth and she sent such a cute kit to work with.

These are my three cards that I made I will share each individually so you can see them close up.

This first card I used mostly the supplies that Beth sent.  Both patterned papers, the red ribbon, the pink string, the heart and flower embellies along with the love stamp.  I colored the love stamp with my copics, added some banners and the pink heart from an old collection.  The ribbon just above the red ribbon was in my stash.  I couldn't believe how well it matched the paper on top.  I tied a bow with some ribbon from my stash and topped it off with a flower button from the kit.  I really love how this turned out and think I will save it for my anniversary card this year.

I decided to use some paper from my stash for this next card.  It was one of the newer Prima pads that I had purchased not long ago.  I colored a doily and heart tag in the upper corner with my copic airbrush system to match the darker purple color in the paper.  I stamped the anniversary saying and then used a newer die to cut it out.  Of course the whole thing is edged with some Distress ink.  You know how I love anything distress.

The last card I used some of the paper that was in the kit along with the Happy Birthday stamped sentiment.  I water colored the Happy Birthday with my Distress markers and the water brush all from Tim Holtz.  I really liked how this turned out it is nice and muted which matches the paper perfectly.  I then water colored a stamped image I had made earlier from a new PTI collection I purchased.  It was the perfect finishing touch to this very soft looking birthday card.  It is intended for my girlfriend whose birthday is next week.  Shhh...don't tell.

I hope you enjoyed all of my cards this month.  Remember to come take a peek over at http://www.scrappinmojo.com/forum/index.php
