Stamp Club Projects

These are the projects we made this week at Stamp Club.  The angels were a big hit using the Sizzix Bow Die.  I did a search on the internet and found several different versions and mine are a combo of several different ones.

This card uses the single stamp, "Be Merry" which is actually a tag.  I used a strip of DSP to cover up the "To/From".  We stamped the tag with white craft ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.

This was one of my favorites.  I finally sucked it up and bought the Typeset Alphabet Sizzix Die.  I used cardboard that comes inside the DSP cut into 1 1/2" squares; then I stamped in Garden Green one of the stamps from Tape It.  I used the sticker tape from the Goody Goody set in between the green.  Next I die cut the "j" "o" and "y".  The ornament is from Mosaic Madness and "Christmas" is from the polymer stamp, Endless Wishes which unfortunately is sold out.

I just love these colors - Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Brown Sugar.  I used the single stamp, Magnificant Maple and Gorgeous Grunge to make the background on the thinlit card.

    I'm headed to CKC (Creating Keepsakes Convention) in Charlotte this weekend.  Marianne are taking a few classes and doing a little shopping.  We're headed down this morning and will be back Saturday afternoon.  We are both looking forward to lunch .... we are going to Mert's Heart and Soul - a great little soul food restaurant downtown!!

    March Stamp Club Cards

    I am waiting for my Tuesday Stamp Club gals.  They should be arriving in about an hour.  So, I thought I would share the cards we will be making.  I am concentrating on Easter and will let them choose which ones they want to make this month.

    Using the Single Stamp - Ears to You and Melon Mambo ink - easy one.

    Easel Card
     The Easel Card will be the most difficult for them to make but it is really easy when you figure it all out.  I used Blush Bossom card stock (retired).  The Cross is made from the Lattice Die (Elegant Eggplant).  The leaves are punched with the Bird Punch.  I used Nestabilities for the oval and ran it through the Dotted Embossing Folder.  The flower in the center is from the Flower Trim in the mini catalog (pg. 5).  I love these flowers!  They come in Vanilla but it is so easy to die them.  You can color them with markers or reinkers or just smush them into your ink pad.  For the ones we are using today, I just cut about 12 flowers from the card and sprayed them with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and 5-6 drops of reinker.  I mixed it up in my Stampin' Spritzers (big catalog, pg 179).  They are a good deal - you get 2 bottles for $2.95.  I have several that I have mixed different colors into. 

    Easter Blessings is also a Single Stamp in the mini catalog (pg 24) as are the doilies (pg  5).  Another deal!  24 doilies for $2.95!  I used a background from A Good Egg stamp (retired) on the Eggplant card.

    This card makes me smile and think of SPRING!
     I am trying to make the best of the Sale-a-bration stamps - only a few more days!!  This one uses Bloomin' Marvelous.  I stamped the flowers in some retiring in-colors - Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and non retiring, Summer Starfruit.  I cut 1" of the Sale-a-bration DSP for the bottom and wrapped a small piece of ribbon around it.  My club ladies will be able to choose from the ribbon from Sale-a-bration - Pool Party, Is. Indigo or Calypso Coral.

    Another Sale-a-bration - my favorite!  This one is Feeling Sentimental and I thought the That's the Ticket stamp went with it perfectly!
    For this card I used the Natural Composition DSP.  Wow!  I just got this DSP - don't know what took me so long.  It's great - it is a heavy weight paper and the patterns are already embossed on the paper and glossy.  I sponged Soft Suede around the edges and sponged Vanilla on the center of the paper and made that embossing POP!

    This past week was Leadership and Stampin' Up announced a couple of key things.  One being a kit for a guy.  They  introduced the new, very manly stamping kit: the Dude, You're Welcome! kit.
    Guys don't always have the easiest time expressing themselves, but with the Dude, You're Welcome! kit, they'll have
    • Four wood-mount stamps (double-mounted) with the perfect sentiment for every occasion
    • Twelve 4" x 6" postcards in four different (manly) colors
    • Twelve gray envelopes
    • A Basic Gray Classic Stampin' Pad
    • An instructional guide (for the most novice stamper!)
    Basically, the kit includes everything a dude needs to create the perfect manly card that any woman would adore, all packaged in an appropriately masculine box.

    Check out the video:

    Did you love the way he casually tosses aside the instructions?  Fortunately, this set doesn’t really need instructions for the man in your life to make you a great heartfelt card.  Order one of these sets for the man in your life.  He may not say so, but he’ll appreciate it and out of curiosity, he’ll use it!  (And, maybe if you’re really nice, he’ll let you use it, too!)  And you’re better half isn’t the only one who would benefit from this easy and fun set:  suggest it to the other men you know, too! 

     That's not all the news!!  Stampin' Up has had a great response so far to their experiment with single stamps. So much so that they are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.   And boy, are they cute ones!
