January Girl's Night Out Event

I've been lazy..... I've had good intentions but by the time I get home from work those good intentions just get thrown out the window.   Maybe it's the weather.  On Monday when I went to work it was a great big 1 degree.  But thank goodness we are now in a heat wave.  I think it might get up to 50 this weekend.  But it's rainy.

Since I haven't created anything in several days I thought I would share the cards I created for my January Girl's Night Out Event coming up January 24th.   I sent out the email yesterday and by the afternoon, this event had filled up.  I was able to add 4 more spots for some gals on a waiting list though so that was good.

Sympathy and Thinking of You cards are usually cards that I don't create alot of.  Only when I need them, then I'll create one.  So I decided that for January, we would start the year with a supply of Sympathy and Thinking of You cards.

I used the retired Avonlea paper and Brocade assortment for these cards along with some additional ribbons and embellishments.  Most of the stamping is done in either Chocolate or Slate ink.

Check out this little butterfly embellishment.  I inked the butterfly with Juniper ink but it seemed to be a little bright for the paper.  So I toned down the color by sponging on a little bit of Slate ink over the Juniper.   I think it turned out perfect!

The Avonlea Brocade Assortments are all adhesive backed so adding them to the cards is easy!

I used two different sentiment stamps for these cards.   The Card Chatter - Sympathy stamp set will retire at January 31st.  If you like this stamp, you will need to order it THIS month!

  1. Gorgeous cards Gina! I love how you combined all these to create such awesome cards! The girls are going to love them. Have a fabulous 2014. Hugs, Gloria

  2. These are just beautiful Gina. You used two of the most useful stamp sets ever. Love what you did with them and the Avonlea paper.

  3. Love these cards and the Avonlea papers. I may have to get some! Wish I lived in your area and I'd sign up for the class! I'm a CTMH consultant also but never did get the Avonlea paper. Will need to go to WSL and see if it's still there. What a great idea to have a class for Sympathy and Thinking of You cards.
