August Stamp Club

It's fun to have unique and different ways to create a card.  Check out the Top Note shaped card and the circle spinner card below.  What kinds of cards have you created? 
 
*Flower Shop, Petite Pairs Stamp Sets
*Blackberry Bliss, Crumb Cake Cardstock
*Top Note die & Pansy Punch
*Moonlight Paper Stack
  *Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon
Stamp and punch the flower image from the Flower Shop stamp set; one of my recent favorite stamp sets.  Then cut a Top Note die with the Moonlight paper stack and cut it in half.
Punch a hole in the top of the 2 Crumb Cake Top Note cutouts; then fold the ribbon in half and thread through the punched hole.
 



You have to try out the NEW blendabilities markers; they are a fabulous new line of blending markers used for coloring and shading.  There are a ton of stamp images to use them on!

*Vivid Vases Stamp Set
*Blendabilities Markers & Memento Ink Pad
*Tea Lace Paper Doilies & Deco Labels Framelits
*Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon
*Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Whisper White Cardstock 
 Fold the doily over the Crumb Cake cardstock and tie ribbon around.
Use the Memento Ink pad with the Stampin' Up! blendabilities markers before coloring and shading.
Cut the image out with the Deco Label framelits



This is the first spinner card I made; it works by using 2 pennies.  Check it out below! 

*Sea Street Stamp Set
*Circles framelits
*Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Baked Brown Sugar Ink
*1", 3/4" Circle Punch & 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch
Use two of the cirlces, place them on Whisper White cardstock measuring 5-1/4" and 4" and cut in the Big Shot.  Then stamp the starfish and school of fish images on the cut out image.

Place Stampin' Dimensionals around the border so it will be raised up from the base of the card.
 
The layer is penny, dimensional, penny, dimensional, then the crab image!  This is what spins around the opening and creates the spinner card.

July Stamp Club

I love the new stamp sets from the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog! 
Take a peek at 2 that we used in July Stamp Club, as well as an old favorite.
 
*Kinda Eclectic stamp set
*Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive cardstock
*Apothecary Accents framelits, Elegant Butterfly punch
*Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive, Lost Lagoon ink
*Tangelo Twist Stampin' Write Marker
I started out with the starburst and the circles accents on the center of the card. 
Next, I used the leaves from the stamp set; making sure to stamp the image once and then stamp the image again, without re-inking.  This will give a two-tone effect.

Punch out the butterfly using the Elegant Butterfly punch and the phrase from the Apothecary Accents framelits.  I also used the Lost Lagoon marker to go around the edge of the image; to give it some dimension. 
 
 

Thank you, Nicole Black from www.nicolebstampin.blogspot.com for this card!  I received it from her at the Stampin' Up! 2014 Convention! 
 
The Everything Eleanor stamp set is a favorite of mine!  Do you have this set yet?  There are a hundred different ways and colors you can use to create with this set.
 
*Everything Eleanor, For You Stamp Sets
*Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss Ink & Cardstock
*Whisper White cardstock
*2-1/2" Circle Punch
First, I stamped the scroll, then stamped the label image from the stamp set and cut it out with paper snips.

 
Since my Hello Honey piece of cardstock was going to be hidden, I punched out a circle image and used that to stamp my flower image on....this way I'm not wasting more paper than I need to :) 

 


A happy birthday card for male or female; who couldn't use these cards on hand for any birthday?!

*Amazing Birthday Stamp Set
*Moonlight Paper Stack
*Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Hello Honey Cardstock
*Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey Stampin' Write Markers
*Lost Lagoon 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon
