May Stamp Club

Wow!  This is my 2000 post on this blog!!

I finished up Stamp Club Tuesday.  We made four great cards using mostly items that will be retired in just a couple of weeks.

I had to take a deep breath in order to cut into this Painted Blooms DSP.  It is so pretty I have not wanted to use it!  But, it's just paper, you know???!!

This was such a simple card to make.  I didn't want to put much on it and cover up the beautiful paper.  Everyone got a different piece of DSP to make their cards and choose their sentiment.  They turned out beautiful.

This is a cute little pocket card.  I folded the Crumb Cake card stock up and sealed three sides with Washi Tape. But first, cut the center out with a Framelit.  The Coastal Cabana card slips inside the pocket and is stamped with Chalk Talk.  Punch out a few flowers in Calypso Coral and add some Coastal Cabana and Garden Green leaves and a few pearls to the centers of the flowers, and bada, bing, bada, bang .... you're done!

This card uses the Hostess set, Bloom with Hope.  It is stamped on Naturals Ivory paper with Early Espresso accents.  I used the retired textured Early Espresso which distresses very nicely.  I love the flower from Blooming Kindness.

Stamp Club Cards for February

This week is my Stamp Club.  We made a Card in a Box project and 2 easy cards.  The Card in a Box was a rather lengthy project so I made sure to make the other two cards easy and quick.  I will share the Card in a Box tomorrow with directions.

The other two cards used items from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I wanted to use the Good As Gold kit so the gals could see what was included and how easy it would be to put together a card but that you could also amp up the card with things you have in your arsenal.

This is the card I made from the Sale-a-Bration Gold kit.  I used one of the banners that is written in another language and stamped the "hello" hexagon and put it over the foreign language greeting.  So you can use everything in the kit!  The kit comes with an envelope and a gold liner.  I cut a portion of the liner off the bottom to use it on my card.  Once you put the liner in the envelope, you can't tell that I cut any of it off.  I backed the polka dot card with a piece of Island Indigo cardstock BUT later discovered that by adding the additional card stock, it won't fit in the envelopes provided.  The note cards and envelopes are smaller than our standard cards.

The second card we did was about a 10 minute card!  

This is my Washi Tape Card.  Washi Tape is growing on me.  This is the Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape that is in the Occasions Catalog.  There are three rolls of tape in gold - stripes, plain and dots.  We just took strips of tape and put them in the center of the Naturals White card stock.  Stamp a sentiment from See Ya Later (Sale-a-bration) in Versamark and emboss with gold embossing powder.  Use dimensionals to pop up the sentiment in the center of the card.  Adhere the whole thing to a Naturals White card.  Easy Peasy!!
