August Stamp Club - Part 1

I love the new products used in the August Stamp Club!  The Chalk Talk stamp set (130634) and coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits (129983) are so fun; so many different ways you can use this set.  These can be purchased separately, or even better, in a bundle. The Chalk Talk Bundle (132730) saves you 15% when you buy the two together!  Check out page 12 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

A favorite color combo of mine is using Island Indigo and Basic Grey; how great are these colors together?!  Also, check out the NEW Chevron Ribbon in Island Indigo (131151).  Love this one!  I also used the Decorative Label punch (120907) as a frame around the Happy Big Day greeting.

The second project was also fun to make.  The card opens up as a type of "pop-up".  I used the Sketched Birthday stamp set (130426); not pictured, as well as, the Yippee-Skippee! stamp set (131344) for the greeting inside the card.  These are great colors together as well; Raspberry Ripple, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, and Baked Brown Sugar.   
The inside of the card has a Whisper White piece of cardstock measured at 51/4 by 81/4 and scored at 21/4, 41/4 and 61/4.  I stamped the balloon image 3 different times, then colored them in with the markers.  I then punched out the 2-3/8 Scallop Circle (118874) in the middle and stamped my greeting inside "Carbs, schmarbs! {Eat The Cake}"   

Another new product is the Modern Mosaic embossing folder (129984) used as the background on this card.  If you love this embossing folder, then take a peek at page 123 in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog for a coordinating stamp set and punch in this pattern! 

 Both of these projects were inspired by Convention Swaps!  So much creativity at Convention! Stay tuned for Part 2 of the August Stamp Club projects!  Here's a hint....a cardholder which makes keeping your cards together a breeze, and a fun gift as well!
Happy Stamping,
