December Stamp Club

Getting ready for the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season...but still finding time to stamp with friends at the December Stamp Club!  Check out club projects below!

Using the Stars Framelits and the Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set, this card was super fun and easy to make!  The Very Vanilla panel has a star image cut out; then placed directly onto the Crumb Cake card base.  Pop another star in the middle (stamped with Real Red ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with a smaller star image)!  Thank you, Jennifer Blomquist for the inspiration!

*Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set
*Stars Framelits
*Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
*Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla Cardstock
I didn't want to forget the New Year that we will be here is a super quick card using the Happy Hour stamp set and Deco Labels Framelits.  Have you seen the Happy Hour stamp set yet?  It is on page 135 of the Annual Catalog....sooo many uses.....a cocktail on the beach, a martini for date night, or flutes for a champagne toast!
