Aspen Greetings to Go Guest Artist


Aspen Club Stamp ships today! (Just had to tell you that because I'm so excited about this month's collection!)

Each month, we invite a guest artist to create a set of cards, using supplies from our Greetings to Go pack. Our Aspen guest artist was Janet Moran, one of our long-time members from Georgia.


The Greetings to Go package contains enough supplies to create fifteen greeting cards. Our designers put together five each of three different card sizes/designs, with coordinating panels and envelopes. The sets of five are divided into Set A, B and C in the Greetings to Go samples Tricia creates each month.

This is Janet's first time as a Greetings to Go Guest Artist, and she did an amazing job! Let me take you on a little tour of her completed cards.

Set A: 4½x6¼” Green Cards

 



Don't you just love that sweet Tic-Tac-Toe board? It was created using Aspen Club Scrap Wood Veneer for the grid and stitched fibers and a small leaf image stamp for the X's and O's. I also really like the hint of sparkle the torn bits of Mica Handmade paper adds to several of her cards.

Set B: 4¼x5½” Almond Cards


Use a snowflake punch to make a mask to create a snowy background.

Torn papers add interest and texture.


Finally, Janet used the smallest five cards to create a coordinating set of cards all tied up with ribbon that's ready for gift-giving. I love this idea!

Set C: 3 ½ x5” Aqua Cards



Janet did a great job, didn't she? Using five out of the fifteen cards as a small last-minute gift is so clever!

Creatively yours,
Karen

  11. Thanks everyone, it was an honor to be asked to make the cards, I was nervous!! I tell ya you don't stop and think of how nice it is to have all the great ideas each month for inspiration until you don't... =) Thanks for taking such great photos of them (Kay or Karen). I'm going to talk about using the leftover cutouts in my upcoming Aspen blog hop-From Trash to Treasure!

  16. Oooh, I love that Rhapsody kit! It really grew on me and then I used it all up! One thing I love about the Rap items being on the blog now is seeing the cards up close, and it's so much easier to pin them this way. And we can get some insight as to how they were made.
