So Much Fun! Club Projects

I taught my monthly stamp club at my place last night and it was so fun! You girls are great to create for and with! And the snacks were SO yummy too!


We did an All New SU! night with the new In Colors and new stamps.


Here are the 4 projects we did.





Bella's Box: This project is almost a complete case of my talented friend Laurie Schmidlin's Tutorial at SCS on a 3 x 3 box and matching cards. I only adjusted some DSP as I was getting down to my last bits in order to make the project work. I thought it was so darling and the girls loved it too. Seriously is that Kiwi Satin Ribbon not gorgeous???







Bella's 3 x 3 cards: Here we used Bella's blooms to make 3 note cards for the box. Simple yet adorable, it gave everyone a good chance to practise with the scallop edge punch on the DP.





Beautiful Borders: I hadn't used Tangerine Tango at all and then this idea popped into my head somwhat similar to the design I did yesterday with this set, but it has a different feel especially with the layered sentiment and the use of the Felt Fusion Too flowers (I'm so glad we have chocolate ones!). I really am liking how this set looks embossed. And it goes so nice with Floral Background too!

Here's a nice close-up of the embossing and sentiment detail. I really think I will get a lot of use out of this set.






Passionate Silhouettes: This was the showstopper for everyone. They loved the look of how this card came out. It takes some very patient cutting, but wow those colors! And I was the one who didn't like Baja Breeze at first I thought it was too *dusky*...but paired with the right colors...especially Basic Gray...WOW.






The grass is overstamped on the DP and I really like the addition of the glitter on the blooms (w/ a Two Way Glue pen). I think it really makes the card a bigger WOW!
