May Stamp Club Projects

Here are a couple of the cards we made in May Stamp Club!!

I made this card about a month ago for a swap I was in. I can finally share it with you because I have been saving it to use for Stamp Club this month. (I like to save the cards used for Stamp Club so it is a SURPRISE each month!)

I originally saw the layout (concept and folds) of this card on Bev’s blog, which can be found HERE. I love the fold of this card and thought it would go well with our Sweet Scoops Ice Cream stamp set.

Stamp Set: Sweet Scoops
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, Pretty in PinkAccessories: Word Window Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, White Organza Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Glue Pen, Dimensionals

Awning is a rectangle 4 1/4″ x 2″ and scored at 3/8″ and 1 1/4″
Bottom (pink) is 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and scored at 2 1/2″
Here is a “recipe” of the color and paper combos.
The next card was inspired by one of our fellow weSTAMPERS, Linda Rodenberg! She gave our group a 3-mn. demo at our last meeting, on how to make pansies out of the butterfly punch. I fell in love with these, and found some cute cards online using this technique. I think Dawn Olchefske is the originator of this technique. You can find her blog, AND a video tutorial HERE.

Stamp Set: Many Thanks
Paper: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Summer Sun
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Butterfly Punch, Brads, Reinkers, Manhatten Flower Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Sweet Scoops Ice Cream Party for weSTAMP!

I could hardly fall asleep last night after our weSTAMP get together! We had an AWESOME “Sweet Scoops” party! Four of us provided a Shoebox Swap for our group using the soon to be released stamp set called Sweet Scoops. This set was earned (FREE!) at Leadership this year!!

After the Shoebox swap, we had good ol’ fashioned HOMEMADE ICE CREAM with a gazillion toppings. I have some photos below as EVIDENCE that we had a great time.
