May Girl’s Day/Night Out Projects

Here are the projects we made this month for my Girl’s Day/Night Out.

This card was a case of Amy’s card. Her blog can be found HERE. It amazes me how people get SO CREATIVE with these punches!!!

Stamp Set: Inspired by Nature, Very Versatile
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very VanillaInk: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Oval Scallop/Large Oval/Small Oval/Horizonta Slot Punces, 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon

Jan Sannes did a card layout that I really thought was clever. Her layout can be found HERE. I just substituted some different colors and stamps and came up with this.

The picture below shows the card opened a little bit. You can see how the 3rd circle is a “peek a boo” punched out.

This was a tribute to Father’s Day (or a masculine birthday card, if you prefer.) I am in love with that faux wood look. I did another faux wood card for our weSTAMP swap last month, which can be found here. (Scroll to the bottom) If you want to see how SIMPLE it is to achieve this look, head over to Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts blog and there is a video on how to do this! You can find the link HERE.

Stamp Set: Totally Tool
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Creamy Caramel
Ink: Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White
Accessories: Twill Tape, Screw Brads (I can’t remember where I ordered these from off of the internet!!), Ticket Corner Punch, Piercing Tool

The colors I used for the “faux wood” was creamy caramel cardstock as the base. I then ran the colors: chocolate chip, creamy caramel, more mustard, and whisper white ink pads across it.

These dresses are popping up everywhere on SCS! The card I cased was designed by Lisa Freeman and can be found HERE. (Warning her blog is ADDICTING! LOL)

August Stamp Club Projects

Here are the projects we did for Stamp Club this month. Hope you enjoy them!

This first card has kind of a funny story to it. I CASED this from a gal at convention. I don’t even know her name, but she was sitting at a table working on her swaps for convention, assembly line style. She had one completed, and was fervantly working on finishing the others. I wanted to swap with her but she wanted to finish up those she was working on. She nicely told me that she wanted to finish, and graciously allowed me to take a picture. Well some of us weSTAMPERS parked our bags at a nearby table, watching her, and HOPING she would hurry up and finish! LOL Are we crazy OR WHAT! I was going to offer to help her! LOL She never did finish while we were there, so I relied on my trusty digital camera to reproduce what she made. SO, if ANYONE got one of her originals that is similar to this one, please let me know so I can credit her! I did tweak it a little bit but basically the idea is the same. I think this card really showcases the designer paper. It is a great card do display new paper and stamp sets! I will probably do a Christmas card this style, too, to add to my sample stash.
