June Stamp Club Project

June Club met last Friday. We made the lollipop flower pots that I posted in May. Plus these two cards.

This first card is a "simple" card. I used the Define your life set to stamp the definition of simple on the card. The half pearl from the Pretties Kit was died using Crystal Effects and die based re-inker. The flower is held on the Almost Amethyst DSP with Tombow's Multi Glue. It seeped through the flower, so I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to cover the glue up. The white ribbon is White Taffeta. The cardstocks used are Shimmery White, Lovely Lilac and Apricot Appeal.

This card was inspired by my friend Nicole. She did this same basic card in a 4x4 size. The colors used are Bordering Blue, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, and So Saffron. The stamp set used is Blooming with Love. This is one of my favorites. The center pot was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock a second time, watercolored, cut out and then layered onto the same pot on the full image. It was layered on with a Dimentional. We tied a tiny bow with Linen Thread and added to the front of the pot. Love this card. Thanks for the inspiration Nicole!!

At our club meetings we do swaps. Here is what I did for mine. I found these little tins in the Michaels $1 bins. Plus I had a 25% whole purchase coupon. The flowers are made with the Felt Fusion, and Diecut Blooms. The center is a dyed half pearl on stamped and punched flower from the One of a Kind Stamp set. Then I faux stitched the flowers. On the can, I added some Felt Fusion Flowers with small beads glued to the centers. Opps- Forgot to mention that the watering can is full of Jelly Bellies.
