Catch Up Club - April 2024

In a text conversation amongst friends in the fall of 2022, we agreed that we were all falling behind in creating with items from virtual events, kits, even groups we are in. From that conversation the idea of the Catch Up Club took formation. We decided it was time to work on those cardmaking projects that were waiting for our attention. 

On the last day of each month we've committed to sharing card/cards we have made from something we need to "catch up" on. This month I'm a few days early because my blog will be busy the last day of the month.

You can view my original Catch Up Club post - HERE - for more details.

For this month's Catch Up Club post, I chose to complete a card from Taylored Expression's 2023 Virtual Stamp Joy (Session 1).  

Those little white spots were fun to create. We were instructed to blend ink into the masked area of a piece of white CS and then to use an embossing folder to decorate it. Lastly, the piece was lightly sanded to remove the ink.

It should be noted that while most cards posted on my blog are my own designs (albeit sometimes inspired by others), these Catch Up Club cards are not my designs. I've completed cards designed by the class instructor, so while I've made the card, it is not original to me.

Please check out the blogs of my Catch Up Club friends, too...




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Fabulous background Jeanette, and a stunning card - the white die cuts are dramatic against the dark backdrop. Love that you used the same embossing folder in the base layer.

Wow Jeanette! Love that background, such rich colors. Lightly sanding the embossed pattern is a nice touch!

I loved making this card too! Yours looks great! I'm so happy that I'm part of this group!
