February Stamp Club 2015

Gearing up for "Spring" makes me think of being outside, fresh fruits and veggies, and CAKE, of course!  :)  These 3 cards we made in our February Stamp Club!  You should join us next time!

I LOVE this stamp set, One Tag Fits All!  I received this as a FREE gift from Stampin' Up! for attending the Spring Catalog Kick-Off in Orlando, Florida.  The tag was stamped, punched out, colored in around the edges, then punched again with a 1" circle to make the hole to view the cake.  There are dimensionals behind the tag, to make it pop up.  Simple, easy, cute, and glittery!

*Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, Daffodil Delight Markers
*Basic Black Ink
*Silver Glimmer Paper

How about a juicy, ripe lemon tree for a breath of fresh Spring air?!  This card uses another FREE stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog (FREE item with $50 purchase before S/T), A Happy Thing.  A little Washi Tape and some Blendabilities and you are good to go!

This next stamp set is perfect for Spring....and Summer, Fall and Winter!  One set that can be used for all 4 seasons.  Did you see my YouTube Video using the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set?!  This stamp set has 14 images....and endless possibilities.  Plus this card is smooth and ready to send in the mail; no bumps, no embellishments, just paper and ink!
