Wow, has this month flown by! Not much stamping time to be found for me. I had a stamp club meeting last night though, so I had to come up with something! Lee always laughs when I say "I have to stamp". Sometimes, it really works out that way though!!! I couldn't find time all week, but by Wednesday night, I had to!!!
Here are the cards I came up with. We started with this one, because I knew it would be tough. I've learned over the years NOT to save tough for last.
I had purchased the bulk Sticky Cut letters so I wanted to let my club ladies try them. Honestly, they are a little frustrating to work with as they are SOOOOO sticky, but the end result is worth it!!! Everyone loved it in the end. Only problem was I inadvertently used the glitter from the upcoming Occasions Mini and we were closing this for February, but there's always next month's order! Color is Bashful Blue. Background is stamped with the Pretty Petals background in Bashful Blue on Whisper White. BTW, this card opens the long way also, not the normal way. Corners were punched with the Ticket Corner punch and the edge was sponged with Bashful Blue. We used the 1-1/4 square punch near the bottom of the white layer, and stamped thru the "Happy Hellos" saying from the SAB set Lots of Thoughts. The ribbon is the Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain.
This glitter is awesome! It is called Chunky Sprinkles and comes in a set of 4: Celery, Crystal, Light Blue & Light Pink. I can't wait to try more!!! We also have Chunky Essentials in the Idea Book which includes Red, White, Silver & Black. Oooohhh, think of the possibilities!!!
Next, we used the So Many Scallops SAB set to make this card. First, we stamped the "sweet of you" scallop image in Apricot Appeal on Apricot Appeal, and again in Tempting Turquoise on Tempting Turquoise. We then punched those with the Scallop Punch. The stem from Stem Sayings is stamped in Certainly Celery on Whisper White. The leaves were punched using the 5-Petal flower punch. I punched a flower from Certainly Celery Prints DP. Then I held one of the petals back into the punch and punched when it resembled a leaf. The scallop flowers were adhered to the card with a dimensional; the buttons (from the Fresh Favorites I set) with a Mini Glue Dots. Edges of the Whisper White layer were sponged with Certainly Celery. A Celery grosgrain ribbon was tied around the Whisper White layer before layering onto Apricot Appeal and then Certainly Celery.
Have a good weekend all!!! Rember that the Occasions Mini starts tomorrow, 3/1 AND that Sale-A-Bration continues thru March 17. The FREE stamps are great!!
