Projects for Stamp Club





I created the photo box and owl card for our stamp club last month. The photo box was our challenge and I covered it with Memory Box paper. The owl card was the sketch challenge and the stamp is from Inkadinkado. I will be more diligent with writing down supply lists and vendor names in the future. Right now, I'm too lazy to go up two flights of stairs to search for the information....sorry! If you have questions, please leave a comment.

The snowflake card is the herringbone technique I re-learned from one of our stamp club members, Jane Bosi. The snowflake is created with Spellbinder's create-a-flake 1, stenciled while still in the die and glittered.

Time for dinner and have a great evening.

Stamp Club




Here are three items I made for our stamp club held at our LSS this week. The first is a baby card created with a Stamp Shoppe Creations image and the ovals are Spellbinder nestabilities. Papers and embellishment are unknown since the Stamp Shoppe provided those items.

The second card is a sketch challenge. The cardinal image is from A Muse, and once again, die cut from Spellbinder nestabilities ovals. The DP is from Little Yellow Bicycle and ribbon from Michael's.

The third item (and most fun for me to create) is my name tag. The paper is Gina K's pure luxury chocolate kiss cardstock which I mounted to chipboard after stamping and attached a pin to the back. The fern image is a vintage stamp which I "inked" with juniper Adirondack acrylic paint dabber from Ranger. The butterfly is from Impression Obsession and stamped with gold paint from Ranger. I added rock candy stickles to some of the fern fronds, gold stickles to the body of the butterfly and a crystal. The gold fern charm is also vintage.

Our stamp club consists of 14 talented ladies and we meet once a month. Two individuals provide a "shoe box" and the Stamp Shoppe provides a challenge and sketch. Of course, dessert at the end of each meeting is the best! Time to start on next month's projects:0)

Happy Valentine's Day!


This is my very first posting to my new blog! I made this card for my grandkids using one of the new Romance Cuttlebug embossing folders, a vintage valentine stamp, Bazzill paper (two-sided brown/pink)which I sanded after embossing, and ribbon from Michaels. Other papers are from my mega stash of paper and sources are unknown. Hope you and yours had a wonderful day. My son, his wife and their two cutie daughters, Sophia and Piper, spent the weekend with me. They were able to snowmobile and do a little sledding with Sophia on a beautiful February Wisconsin weekend.

I will try to post as frequently as possible. Just getting my feet wet with the process so please be patient. Hope to see you here again soon.
