Treasures of Life Sneak Peek

Don't you love it when you find a stamp set that not only can be used for what is intended, but one that can be used for something else.  I believe that this stamp set can be incorporated into a congratulations to a New Baby to the new parents.  I will do one of those cards in the near future.  

Today, I wanted to show an alternate card to my "January Your Creativity Awaits Monthly Card Club"  .  I also wanted to share a couple of techniques that can add a bit of variety to a card.  Here is the card.  I will give the supply list below.

I wanted to also show how you can use product from the annual catalog.  Can you believe that this is the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper?

If you live in Canada and love to make cards, I have a monthly Card Club.  Registrations are now Open for  January's Club.  We are using a new set from the January to June  Mini Catalog called Treasures of Life.  It is a wonderful stamp set as shown above but can be substituted for many other sets.  

   If you want more information go here.   Due to recent input, I have done a change up on the program.

Also I have my Product Share going on right now.
