October Stamp Club

October is underway and now it's time for Thanksgiving and Christmas cards! 
This Thanksgiving card would make a great addition if you are bringing a side dish to someone's home for the Thanksgiving meal or to send to a friend/family member who is not close by!
 
*Magnificent Maple and Tags 4 You stamp sets
  *Decorative Label and Label Bracket punches
 *Summer Starfruit ink and cardstock
 *Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper
 *Soft Sky Seam Binding Ribbon
 


 
The next card is SUPER SIMPLE to put together and uses some BLING!!  The colors could be switched out for some Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler if you wanted to go with the red/green theme
 
 *O Holy Night stamp set
*Scallop border punch
*Midnight Muse ink and cardstock
 *Smoky Slate and Soft Sky cardstock
*Silver Glimmer Paper
*Winter Frost DSP stack
*Silver 1/8" Ribbon  
                                          
 
 
The last project we made in October Stamp Club is my FAVORITE!! 
I saw this idea on a card at 2013 Stampin' Up! Convention!
I love how versatile Stampin' Up! stamps, punches, etc are.  See how I used the Mosaic Madness punch to create a Christmas themed card.
 
*Post Card stamp set
*Mosaic and Itty Bitty Shapes punches
*Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder 
*Soft Suede ink
*Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive cardstock
*Silver Glimmer Paper
*Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon 
Run the Cherry Cobbler cardstock thru the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder then punch out the shape with the Mosaic punch.  Use the Mosaic punch to punch out the Old Olive.
Sponge around all the edges using Soft Suede ink  
Here is a close up of the Poinsettia flower made using the punches.  The Old Olive pieces are the leaves and the Cherry Cobbler pieces are the flower (arrange with pointed ends touching and alternate the shape for the top layer).  Add the center piece of Silver Glimmer Paper punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes!
 
 
 

 
Voila!
 
I hope you enjoyed these projects and find some stamping inspiration to start making those Christmas cards!  How many cards are you sending out this holiday season?
