Below are the projects we made in May's Stamp Club.  These projects use stamp sets that are retiring at the end of May 2013.  Do you have these in your collection yet?

The first project is a tag made using the Big Shot Two Tags Bigz die.  This can be used on the outside of a gift bag or attached to the top of a wrapped gift.  The Apothecary Accents Framelit cut the shape out of the Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper that is directly behind the Soda Pop Top!  The Cherry Cobbler ink and seam binding ribbon tie it all together!

The second card was so simple to put together.  All you need is the Moving Forward stamp set (one of my favorites and I am very sad to see this one retire at the end of May), the Window Frames Collection Framelits, and some 1/8" silver mini brads.  The Patio Party Designer Series Paper has a nice color palette, including Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, and Midnight Muse used here.

The third card uses the Perfectly Preserved stamp set.  This set is so versatile, I can't count how many ways there are to use it.  Love it.  The Designer Series Paper is Floral District and the card base is Daffodil Delight.  The bow is made out of Linen Thread.  The ink color is Rich Razzleberry.

Thank you for visiting!  I hope you found some stamping inspiration!

April Stampin' Up! Club

Did you miss the April Stamp Club?  Below are the 3 projects from our club meeting.  Are you curious about stamp club?  Want to join us next month?  Send me an email for more details kdowning9678@yahoo.com

The first card can be used in any color combination and any occasion you choose.  This one uses a Summer Starfruit card base and Primrose Petals ink and cardstock.  The greeting is from the hostess set Wacky Wishes; an exclusive hostess only stamp set.  Also, the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the coordinating punch was used.  The center of the Mixed Bunch flower is a Summer Starfruit dahlia embellishment....I love these....

The second card uses the Sent with Love stamp set and Designer Series Paper.  The embellishment is the Designer Builder Brads from the 2013 Spring Catalog.  You can also use embossing powder and the heat gun to change the color of the brad to match your project!

 The final card is a Mothers Day card, but again, you can chose any occasion or greeting and use the same layout of this card.  The card base is Baja Breeze, a color that is going to retire from Stampin' Up!'s color collection.  I will miss this color!


There are so many great things about Stamp Club.  We get together once a month to spend a couple hours together having fun creating.  I love my clubbers, thank you for supporting and stamping with me!

Happy Stamping,
Kari

Last Chance Exclusive....Best of Everything

Do you have a friend that you don't see as often as you would like, but once you get together everything falls right back into place from the last place you left off?  I appreciate each and every friend; friendship is a great place to be...

This card uses the Best of Everything stamp set, which is retiring at the end of May 2013; This set is so versatile.  The clouds on this card are made using Whisper White cardstock, a circle scallop punch, Marina Mist ink, and a stamping sponge...Punch the scallop circle, place it on different areas of the Whisper White cardstock, dip the sponge in Marina Mist ink and sponge right onto the paper!  Voila!
