February Stamp Club

Who loves coffee?  Hot chocolate?  Tea? 

This cup would work for all 3 beverage blends. It is one of my favorite sets in the catalog!
Also, do you notice a theme of Markers in this month's Stamp Club?!

*Perfect Blend Stamp Set

*Basic Black Marker & Linen Thread
*Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White, Crumb Cake Cardstock
*Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper

I used the Basic Black Marker to ink up the stamp and stamped it on Whisper White Cardstock and then stamped the image on the patterned paper.  I then used my scissors to cut the cup out of the WW Cardstock and the pattern out of the Kaleidoscope paper and glued it right on the cup.

The second card I was inspired by the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Doesn't the embossing folder resemble crocodile skin?

*Decorative Label Punch
*Pacific Point and Pistachio Pudding Markers
*Decorative Dots Embossing Folder
*Pacific Point  and Whisper White Cardstock
*In Color Designer Series Paper Stack

I used the Markers to color the stamp two different colors; the gator in Pistachio Pudding and the phrase in Pacific Point.  I punched it out, cut the polka dot paper into a banner edge, then assembled the card together.

The third card is super simple to make! Ink up the stamp with the Markers, stamp, and assemble! Done and Done
*Blesssed Easter Stamp Set
*Baked Brown Suger, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi Markers

January Stamp Club

I'm so glad to be back with a new round of Stamp Club!  New year, new stamps!!  Stay tuned for some great projects, techniques, inspiration and more!

These are the cutest cards made with the envelope punch board!  A mini file folder :)

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of ways to use Washi Tape.  I just wrapped three different strips around a piece of cardstock for the front of this card.
 I love using something different on a card that you don't use every day; a shaker frame.  This card has little gold flecks of glitter inside.
Happy Stamping!
