September Stamp Club Projects

Here are the three projects we are doing for club tonight. The first is a Christmas card using Snow Swirled. This set has grown on me. It's on sale until Sept 30th, so I wanted to use it before it went off sale. This card uses Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Brushed Gold Cardstock. The Background is the Faux Silk Technique. The tree is embossed with Gold embossing powder- again mixed with Dazzling Diamonds (can you tell I like this combo). The ribbon is white taffeta.
This second card is done with the Bella Rose Designer paper, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White & Kiwi Kiss cardstocks. The words are inked in Kiwi Kiss and then the "Love" is colored over the kiwi ink with Real Red marker. The ribbon is the Riding Hood Red striped ribbon. The flower is done with half scallops that have the ends glued together, then the petals are adhered in a circle using a Pop-Up Glue Dot to secure. The center of the flower is a Build a Brad, though I snipped off the tines of the brad and secured with a Glue Dot.The last project we did is a treat package designed for Halloween. These are all the rage on-line these days, so I thought I would throw my hat in the ring here. The tag is simple, stamp the Batty For You image in black and them punch out the center. Stamp it again on Old Olive, punch it out and layer the pieces together. The hanger is the done with the Word Window Punch out folded in half and secured on both sides of the scallop. The witches broom is done with two brown paper lunch bags. The first bag is cut into narrow slits all the way around to the base rectangle area. I then layered an un-cut bag into the center of the slit bag. I gathered up the ends and trimmed them a bit. (You can leave it, but the "stick" part I used was too short, so I trimmed). Then, add slits to the inside bag about 1-2" from the top all the ways around. Gather the slits together and wind some Black Hemp around the bag top while securing a Pretzel rod into the center. Tie on your tag and finish winding and tie off the hemp. Super easy project. Probably a good one for kids who are able to use scissors safely (not mine yet).
