March Stamp Club

My Stamp Club met last Thursday and we made three cards. 

This one uses the reinker technique that was so popular last year.  I let them choose their colors and do 4-5 flowers.  We used two of the flowers on this card and they took the other two home to make another card (I hope!!).  This just makes the most elegant card.  I was surprised that no one order this Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.  I think it is such a versatile stamp. 

Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Cute By the Inch
Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie, Barely Banana, Always Artichoke, Shimmery White
Accessories:  Orange Ribbon, Bird Punch (leaves); Scallop Punch; 1 1/4" square punch; Manhattan Flower embossing folder; Big Shot

This card was CASE'd from Brenda at QBee's Quest.  This turned out to be a little bit too much for my gals even though I did most of the work before they got here.  I had the all the cardstock precut and scored; even stamped the owls so they just had to punch them out.  The middle fold uses stickers from a retired Scrappin' Kit.  They just had to stamp the "celebrate" on the back and the Take a Spin on the front plus the arrow.  It's just hard for me to "dumb it down" sometimes but I'm learning!!

Stamps:  Take A Spin; Party Hearty; Punch Bunch (SAB)

This is the third card that we did.  I gave them a choice of this card or the next one.  Most chose this one.  Again, I precut all the squares for them so they just had to glue them down and stamp and emboss.   It was a good one to use up a lot of scraps - some retired and some current.

Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Warm Words
Cardstock:  Concord Crush; Melon Mambo, Dusty Durango, Kiwi Kiss; Bermuda Bay; Whisper White
Access:  Corduroy Button; Silver Embossing Powder, Versamark

Aren't these little birds just the cutest?  This is one of the stamp sets that you can get with Sale-a-bration for FREE!  Actually, my daughter got this one last month and is letting me use it.  The flower in the corner is also from Sale-a-Bration - it is a sticker from the Ice Cream Parlor kit.

Stamps:  Happy Together
Cardstock:  Whisper White; DSP (In Color pack, pg. 175)
Accessories:  Corner Punch; sticker from Ice Cream Parlor Scrappin Kit (SAB)

Fifth Avenue Floral

I met with a group of ladies on Thursday for a card making session.  We take turns with the projects and I volunteered this month.  The card we made is so pretty and one that I learned to do during the Shallotte Quarterly (thanks, Becky!).  It is made with the Fifth Avenue Floral Sizzix folder (exclusively SU) and the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.

These are the cards closed.

Yellow Card open

Pink Card open
If you notice the pink card is cut a little different than the yellow one.  It just goes to show even when you mess up, it can turn out all right! 

  • Cut cardstock 5 1/2" x 12"
  • Score at 4" and 8"
  • Put one side of the card (up to the fold line) in the Fifth Ave Floral Sizzix folder and run through the Big Shot (with the words on the die facing up).  This side will be embossed.
  • Put the other side of the card (up to fold line) in the folder (with the words underneath this time) and run through the Big Shot.  This side will be de-bossed.
  • Trim around the floral shape (see samples above).
  • Corner round the top edges of the inside piece of cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 3 3/4" x 5 1/4" and corner round the top edges.
  • Stamp on the white with the Fifth Ave Floral stamps.  Adhere to the center panel.
  • Stamp one of the flowers on a scrap of white & cut out.  Adhere it on the inside with dimensional tape.
  • Punch two holes at the top and thread ribbon through.
  • Make a belly band to go around the card.
This card can be used for a wedding invitation, sympathy card, birthday, etc.  Very versatile!
