March Stamp Club Project

In March we did Easter projects.  The first card was done by stamping the Chocolate Bunny stamp on Chocolate Chip paper with Versamark and then embossing it with clear embossing powder.  The eggs were done using the large oval punch and the Designer Label punch was used for the sentiment and the Well Scripted Stamp Set.

The second card was done using the Easter stamp set Abundant Hope and the Faux Silk Technique.  This technique can be found HERE at Split Coast Stampers.  The Modern Label punch was used for the sentiment and the Scallop Trim punch was used for the edges of the Certainly Celery paper.

December Stamp Club Project

Ok, so I have been a horrible blogger and no one is probably even following me anymore (at least not checking in regularly!), but I am going to update with a few of our past stamp club projects and now that my stamp area is done hopefully some new projects.

In December we made calendars using the Easel Card Technique.  You can find a tutorial for this at Split Coast Stampers.  I used a clear envelope to hold the month pages.

Wedding Card #3

This is my favorite card of all three. I just finally broke down and bought Circle Circus and boy am I glad I did. I LOVE this set! This card was super simple to make and I am really happy with how it turned out. I used the Chit Chat rub-ons (which are retiring - quick go and get them!) for the sentiment.

Wedding Card #2

This super simple card was done using some retired DSP (I'm not sure of the name - I purchased it off the clearance section online) and the Everything Nice stamp set. I think this card could have used a little something extra - I'm just not sure what. Maybe some ribbon? or a few brads?

Wedding Card #1

I made a few wedding cards for my mom to use this summer, so I will start with this one! Nice and simple, but perfect for a summer wedding. I used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and colored the flowers and stems using the Stampin' Pastels. The sentiment is from Tiny Tiny Wishes.

The Write Stuff Card Set

I offered my first class last Friday! We made 6 cards and a box to store them in using the Write Stuff DSP, Kraft cardstock and Chocolate Chip cardstock. I have a few corrections to make in my instructions and then I will be selling the remaining kits for $15 each. All the consumables you need to make this set will be included. The stamp set is not included. Please let me know if you would like to reserve one of these kits for yourself, I only have 3 left!

Nurse Appreciation Week

It was nurse appreciation week May 6-12 and since I work at the College of Nursing at my local University, I made this card for my supervisor. I CASE'd the idea from Ellen Kemper, a fellow Stampin' Up! Demo. I didn't have all the correct punches, so I just made due with what I have. I think this is such a cute card and would be great if you have a scheduled surgery to give to your attending nurse while you are in the hospital.

It's a Color Renovation!

Stampin' Up! just announced today that we are having a Color Renovation! What does that mean you say? Well, it means that we have new color collections that include some of our current colors, some past In Colors and some new colors. It also means that we will be sending some of our current colors into retirement.

Stampin' Up! is letting us share this information with you now rather than when the new catalogs come out this summer so that you have time to stock up on any of your favorites that are being retired. These select colors will not be available in paper, ribbon, ink, markers, etc. so if you want 'em get while you can!

Here are the lists of what colors are going where. Study them, ignore them, cry over them. . .whatever you need to do, here is the information. I also have a couple PDFs that you can download for your reference .
