Hostess club from Friday

If you are a regular reader of this blog, by now you know that I have a group of wonderful ladies that meets every month for a technique hostess club. We do 3 cards usually. This month (last Friday) we did 2 cards and a box.

First, the box... it's a regular ol' 2, 4, 6, 8 box. It's in the new SU! In Color Soft Sky (isn't it pretty). We wheeled it with the SU! Petals jumbo wheel in Bashful Blue. We put a window on it (although mine isn't centered! DOH!) with the tag punch and acetate.

Next, we did the Faux Tearing technique. What a simple technique. The present is from the new set, Year After Year. It has dazzling diamonds on it (see Jenn, I do use glitter!). The card stock is Apricot Appeal, Lavender Lace, and Whisper White.

Now, this set is SO not be but it is so elegant and beautiful and I REALLY like it. I guess sometimes even if it's not your style, you can really love it. Baroque Motifs is the set. And let's talk about Purely Pomegranate again for a sec... LOVE IT... LOVE IT... LOVE IT. I bought one pack of card stock.to try it out and now I need more! The technique is embossing in color with the Classic Ink Pads. Card stock is Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla.
ETA - The pomegranate square thingy is embossed. It's very beautiful in RL. (well, I think so!).

What do you think about these cards?

And if you're in my new technique club that starts this Friday... you may or may not see these cards/techniques! :)
