March Stamp Club

Spring has Sprung and these cute projects are the perfect go-to cards and gifts for friends!
Who doesn't love quick and easy gifts that you can whip up in no time?
The first project is one that I love and like to use a lot for a hostess gift, a thank you gift, or a just because gift.
*My Mother Stamp Set
*Summer Starfruit Ink & Pool Party Cardstock
*Gold Sequin Trim & Decorative Window Gift Boxes
*Summer Starfruit, Crisp Cantalope, Pool Party twine
*Spiral Flower Originals Big Shot Die
You can see in the photo above that the Spiral Flower comes out as a flat scalloped spiral.
I then used my bone folder to curl the paper, break down the fibers, and get the shape to take place.
I used my finger to start twirling the shape; you could use a marker, a pencil, anything you have.
Voila!  Isn't it pretty?!
I stamped the phrase "You're 1 in a million" on some Whisper White cardstock and used my scissors to create a pennant shape at the end; then I used a glue gun to attach the flower to the banner.  I tied the Gold Sequin trim and the Twine around the box.
These Decorative Window Gift Boxes are so easy to decorate and can be used for anything; cookies, candy, cards, gift cards, money for a graduate, golf tees, etc etc etc
The second project is a Birthday card.  I couldn't resist using this stamp set to create my own patterned paper!
*Simple Stems and Four You Stamp Sets
*Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green Ink
*Whisper White, Midnight Muse, Gumball Green Cardstock
*Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon
Stamp one of the flower images randomly across the paper in Gumball Green.
Then stamp the other two flower images in Midnight Muse and Daffodil Delight.
There is no right or wrong way; you can create any work of art that shows your stamping style!
If you celebrate your birthday in March, Happy Birthday!!
The third project uses some fun, new designer series paper and a neat method for using ribbon.
*Yippee Skippee! Stamp Set
*Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White Cardstock
*Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper
*Bermuda Bay ink and Taffeta Ribbon
*Decorative Dots Embossing Folder
*Deco Labels Big Shot Framelits
I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White cardstock, then used the Big Shot and the Framelits to cut the image out; Easy!!
Cut the next size larger framelit for the Basic Black piece
Here is the neat method for using ribbon as an embellishment on your card and not tie it in a knot or a bow; just cut a strip and tape it around the back using Scotch tape!
A cute Thank You card!
Happy Stamping!
